Marheb (5437) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Floral, gazonn avec une touche dagrumes. Lamertume est une tte en avant des malts qui peinent lappuyer. Le corps est actif, trs effervescent. Rien de mmorable, rien de repoussant.

papat444 (129) - Carignan, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2017
Appearance: Pours a red amber body with a 3 finger, slightly tan head and trailing it is a nice cascade of bubbles. Smell: A bit muted but malt at the fore with a discreet bitterness and some fruit. Taste: Mellow hops, sweet and a little spice to it. Hops bite at the tail end but not as strong as i would have liked. That being said, its very tasty and big on the malt. Some tropical fruit hidden in there, melon or mango maybe? As it warms, it has a sugar cane finish to it. Mouthfeel: Smooth with a surprisingly low carbonation. Very well balanced beer and comfortable on the palate.

AleRider78 (897) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2017
Pours a very large amount of creamy frothy looking head. Has a slightly cloudy coppery appearance. Thick dirty lacing. Aromas of various hop varieties, like floral, spice and resin. Strong flavours and bitterness. This includes Citrus hops (oranges, lemons) floral hops, light roasted malts and a bit of sweetness with hints of caramel and toffee. Strong spiced touches as well. Has a creamy mouthfeel, slight tingling, fairly strong bitter aftertaste and also in the finish. Really good, bitterness on the palate that lingers and the flavours that stay with you for a while.

Fandabidozi (4) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 6, 2015 does not count
Pours a nice orange colour which madme want to sink it down, but this was too happy for my liking and chucked most of it out. This beer is heavily rved about in BC but there was no finess to the taste, it was just too bold for my liking.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
650ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Orange amber in colour with a mid sized off white head, good retention, good lacing. The aroma is of citrus, caramel, lightly sweet, pine and bread. The flavour is moderately bitter, some sweetness as well, hoppy with pine, cedar, citrus, oily and woody. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, bitter with lots of citrus, dry. Excellent. Very good balance.

MartinT (9617) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Soft but heavy caramel pours onto fruity hop resins in this warming Double IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A gorgeous cloud of foam sits atop the cloudy amber.
-There is a date printed on the neck of the bottle, but it is very blurry. And black on dark brown... not very useful. In any case, this was clearly not the freshest bottle, but it was still on a store shelf...
-Bitterness is peppery and resinous. Intense but necessary to balance out the heavy sugars.
-This is undoubtedly a flavorful brew. But its lack of freshness makes it appear unrefined. No idea if it is as rough when fresh.
-Alcohol is prominent in the finish.

Bottle.

Randy4Beer (513) - - SEP 21, 2014
Pours a murky orangey brown, Thick white head, leaving nice lacing behind. Nose is a nice blend of malts and hops, coming in the form of caramel and grapefruit. Medium palate. Taste are reflective of the aromas, with some light sweet caramel up front, and a bitter citrus rind finish. Overall, I would have liked a bit more of a hop bomb given the name, but its hard to argue with the balance this beer possesses.

lesifflebiere (1763) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2014
Un peu nuageuse, mi-paisse et puissamment odorante, cette IPA double qui semble quand mme prime abord de facture assez classique. Les saveurs sont fortement houblonnes, mais aussi maltes, beaucoup de sucre rsiduel en arrire-plan, pas damertume rellement persistante. Au final, cest un bon exemple de ce type, qui ne rinvente rien cependant, et qui peut agacer avec ses sucres trs prsents. Plus quacceptable, mais pas inoubliable.
