341ml bottle served in a snifter glass.

A: Pours clear orange color forming a medium bubbled and creamy white head. Medium to low retention forming lots of lingering lacings left in the glass

S: Caramel malts. Flowery hops. Lots of pine, grassy and bit citrus hops. A bit fruity and spicy. A bit of alcohol in the very end

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Caramel malts. Lots of flowery, pine and citrus hops. Good bitterness

M: Heavy body. A bit molasses too. Medium carbonation. Hoppy bitter aftertaste which is mainly pine

O: Good drinkability. Nice Canadian IIPA. It's pretty much what I would expect from an IIPA produced in Belgium, for instance ;)

4.11/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: It has a nice deep golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves very nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of floral hops, grass, some pine, light citrus, some spiciness and sweet caramelly malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some definite floral hops, some grassiness with piney resins, some citrus and sweet caramelly malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

3.51/5  rDev -12.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a glowing orange color with a wispy, shortlived head. Maltyness and some lemony, piney hops mix with a kick of booze in the nose. The taste moderately hoppy with the same PacNW hop profile in the nose with some pineapple and herbal Euro hop character as well. Stewed fruit, some nuttiness and cookie dough provide solid malt balance. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a rather light carbonation. Alcohol isn't very well hidden for the ABV, but its not to the point that it's distracting.

A decent DIPA, though a bit too boozy and not hoppy enough imo.
