I enjoy this brewery's output and I was stoked to see another DIPA to savor.

Pours a mild copper color with a frothy white head in my glass. Color's in the middle of the spectrum but any darker and I'd be suspicious.

I'm going to guess Nelson Sauvin as far as the hops are concerned. "Fruity" with a good whiff of grapefruit and apricot. Pungent.

Very crisp, bitter hop characteristics that start off with a grapefruit/mango/apricot vibe and cascade into what could be piney in a manner.

Lingering alcohol warmth with a strong pine residue and very little of the citrus. The finish could be nicer but it still works.

An adventurous DIPA that incorporates New Zealand hops to create this interpretation of the style. I believe this is another brewery to watch as far as innovation is concerned.

Drank from my Duvel tulip

A - Pours a deep cloudy copper colour with a nice two fingered head that reduces to a film and laces. Very nice

S - Heaps of hop, sweet toffee malts, grapefruit. Pungent aromas of herb.

T - Super heavy hop flavours that smooth out into toffe mals with a bitter finish.

M - Coates your tongue in a thick film of heavy malt. The carbonation is medium.

O - I don't normally like big IPA's, but I sure can appreciate this one for what it is. It has all the hallmarks of a big IPA. Recommended although your taste buds will be shot

4.28/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

500ml bottle poured into tulip 12/2/13

A clear light copper with some bubbles of all sizes feeding a two finger off white head that retains well and leaves a few rings followed by some random patches

S mango, passion fruit, pineapple, lemon, lime and guava round out the tropical fruit notes, there's a fair amount of pine and toffee in there too. pretty solid nose with a nice blend of tropical notes, pine and sugars, about what I look for in a DIPA

T the tropical notes are more focused towards rind and its very piney compared to the nose, there's a little booze but fairly well concealed considering the strength, rind and pine are strong on the finish

M leaning towards full, slightly creamy from the bubbles with a nice bitter bite, slick after the fact with very faint heat

O no complaints from this guy, another great DIPA from the Kiwis, great hop profile with a little tropical twist on a US style West Coast, well done

I could drink another and I probably will, I'm starting to sound like a broken record but this is yet another great addition to the shelves here in Alberta
