Purchased as a single at the LCBO. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass.

A- Opens well and pours a high white head that lingers for a bit which is surprising for an IPA. Clean and dark gold almost brown color

S- Lots of hops here. Dry hopped well. A ton of malt

T- Very good. Has more than enough hops for an IPA. Lots of body with the malt and sugar content.

M- Good and dry while creamy. Nice brew all around

O- Very good beer. Good for an IPA no matter which country it comes from. Will buy again.

Food Pairing

This wonderful IPA went well with....... BBQ chicken with a touch of BBQ sauce made from ketchup, brown sugar and molasses.

Dark orange, nice creamy off-white head.
Smell of citrus hop, caramel and heavy toasted biscuits, plenty of floral notes with a sweet honey-like side to it, faint peach, and also a bit of earthiness that doesn't bode well.
A "crowded" start, with big bitter hops and a really strong malty backbone, quite heavy and not that attractive. A really bitter citrus character, like orange and grapefruit devoid of any sweetness, plus a slightly sour lemon zestiness. Toasted biscuits, caramel sweetness just for a short flash, quickly stampeded on by big grassy hops, really bitter and dry in the finish.
Aftertaste mostly of bitter hops and some grapefruit peel. Medium body, medium carbonation. Lingering bitterness, like medicine or perfume stuck down the throat.
Lots of hops in this one, "barely under control", as they say on the label, but not entirely cool. Big single-flavored punch, a pity.

Citra hop all-around. A slight taste of malt. Long bitterness and aroma of orange peel. Loose a lot of flavors after a couple of days in the fridge. Drink fresh

Grapefruit and a little pine from the hops. I was not expecting much but was very pleasantly surprised.

I really don't like the packaging but the beer is good.
