4.4/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The IPA that had the hop-heads coming back for more @ Medicne Hat's first beer fest back in OCt 09.

No faults in the 'lloks' dept. A nice, decently bright copper colour, slight chill haze. Exceptional head & lacing.

Citrus and pine dominated in a floral sense that quite possibly could attract honey bees. If there is any malt aroma it's got a tough uphill sled to get past the aforementioned hops aroma.

Very nice balance between some chewy sweet malt and some very oily pine hop. Grapefruit citrus comes through in the back end. No hint @ all of the 8% ABV. Scary in that regard.

Slick, full bodied. Something I could imagine being tapped from a barrel in the early to mid 1800's in India,

There are hoppier double IPA's, but this one is smooth, well balanced and dangerously drinkable. No wonder so many Hop-head's kept coming back to my table for samples...

4.06/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

From a tall bottle.

Upon popping off the cap a large foamy head comes and stays.

Smells of the greatest smell in life; hops.

Taste is very complex, with bitter hops throughout. Dark notes of coffee and malt present, ending with a slightly smokey taste that quickly leaves the mouth feeling crisp, with only a tad bite. Very sippable.
