A- Dark Amber, a touch hazy with a decent white head that lasts ok. Fair retention.
S- Aroma is earthy hops with a touch of citrus. The malt comes through but it brings more of a caramelness than anything else.
T- It's ok with big earthy hops, but there is only one note more or less in it. There is some sweetness too, but that's about it.
M- Medium bodied, nicely smooth, covers up the 11% pretty well.
O- It's a different take on the IIPA than you would see in many American examples. But it's still worth a try.

Serving type: on-tap

Very different looking bottle received in CanBIF 2012. Thanks phyl21ca! 12 oz bottle date notched BB end of 09/12. Poured into a wine glass at 4 C.

Pours a minimal head with OK retention and light lacing. Copper brew that is clear until the bottle sediment pours. Doh! Malty nose and body with hints of sweet caramel. Bitterness that is well balanced, though utterly lacking hop flavours and aromas. More a barleywine than a DIPA at this point. I guess "BB" is relative. Sampled July 1, from notes.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - The beer pours with a small head of off-white foam on top of a very hazy, golden brown body. The head settles fairly quickly and leaves light lace.

S - Pine, grapefruit, and a bit of caramel.

T - Sweet toffee with some floral hop notes up front. More musty hop flavors in the middle with pine and a hint of grapefruit. The beer finishes with more pine and toffee as well as fairly strong bitterness.

M - Medium-thick body, moderate carbonation, and a slightly sweet finish.

D - I'm not impressed with this one, the malt is muddy and one dimensional and the hops are kind of rancid. The bitterness is harsh, yet it does little to push back against the cloying sweetness. A borderline drain pour.

s - caramel with some earthy hop aromas.
t - earthy hops with a very bitter hop finish. there is some caramel and toffee balance.
m - a little thin.
o - decent beer but not a lot of pop to it.

Review from 3/2011 notes. Poured into a Nostradamus flute glass. Pours a dark, somewhat cloudy orange amber. Light head and light lacing. Nice almost barley wine like aroma; sweet malt, pine and citrus hops. Hops with a light malt, pine and citrus flavors. Rather mellow at first then finishes with a sharp, spicy hop surge. A pleasant IPA, but not surpassing the best domestic IPAs.
