look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A - Hazy amber colour with a lovely thick frothy head that lasts for good long while.

S - Citrus and some light caramel. A little pine as well.

T - Pine and resin. Some malt, flowery notes, grapefruit rind and a fairly bitter finish. Not tasting much of the citrus that I expected from the nose.

M - Medium body and decent carbonation.

O - A little too bitter on the finish for my liking. I prefer a little more balance.

3.48/5  rDev -16.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: murky, pale orange with a fine, tan head that has several minutes retention

Aroma: bright citrus - orange, with pineapple, kiwi; a nice mix of sweet, tart, and exotic; floral too, and honey; bitter resin lingers in the background

Taste & Mouthfeel: intense spruce-flavoured bitterness gives a solid burn with only hints of citrus presented in the aroma making it's way to the palate; pithy and heading towards window-cleaner territory, especially in the finish - that of course goes on forever; smooth, medium body; it's like licking the sap off pine needles

Overall: too bad the taste is such a departure from the tantalizing aroma, it had hints of being great, which makes me think this may have been had too long after bottling (another possible casualty of the LCBO); would give it another go given the chance

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

Bottle: Poured a cloudy orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention with some lacing. Aroma of light floral hoppy notes with some lightly sweet malt notes also noticeable. Taste is also a good mix between some floral hoppy notes with some lightly sweet malt backbone notes. Body is quite full with limited filtration. Hops profile was not as powerful as expected but still enjoyable overall.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

A - Pours cloudy with an orangey body and good carbonation. Two fingers of fluffy off white head. Good rings of lace and a half finger of retention.

S - Pineapple, grapes, lot's of hoppy fruits. Lemon and orange. Pineapple core and acidic fruits.

T - Good malt contribution, booze, lot's of hops. Orange and alcohol and grapefruit rind. Alcohol shows up too much.

M - Good carbonation, medium to full body and a grapefruit rind/alcohol finish with a good bitterness.

O/D - Alcohol showed up a bit too much for the ABV on this one, otherwise a fairly good kick at the can for the style.

Wow, lots going on here. Pours a fairly lighter orange than expected, with citrus flavors upfront, pine in the middle and a bitter/dry back-end. For whatever reason, a lot of the double IPAs I've tasted of late have gone a similar route. Would have liked the citrus flavor to stay on throughout; the fact that the flavor drops out near the back end is a bit of a red flag for me. Mouthfeel and carbonation are moderate; overall not a bad DIPA, but not necessarily something I'd seek out again.
