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: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of citrus (mainly oranges and grapefruit), some pine resins, some floral notes and some sweet bready/caramelly malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some citrus, papaya, light grapefruit, some light pine resins, floral hops and sweet bready/caramelly malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a med/high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

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

Pours a hazy orange with shades of gold. Very lively forming a nice thick white head.

Citric fruit forward with touches of pine followed by a mellow sweetness.

A nice blend of bitter and sweet. Although I found it to be overwhelmingly bitter at first it definitely evens out after a few sips. The nose promised more fruitiness but that wasn't delivered.

Mild carbonation and creamy, very smooth.

A very nice brew, quite bitter but does a nice job complementing burst of bitter with fruit flavour.

330 ml bottle served fairly cold into glassware. Purchased from LCBO for $4.25 CDN. I'm very excited to see this in stores.

Appearance - light and vibrant orange color with some honey hues. Thick two finger white head that has great retention. Pretty hazy with some lively bubbles. Clumpy lacing remains behind.

Smell - very fruity with huge burst of pineapple and some mango. Some very light piney aromatics as well melding nicely before succumbing to the fruit explosion.

Taste - the fruit explosion continues with pineapple and mango and a surprising burst of lychee fruit. Moderately bitter with a bit of heat on the tip of my tongue at the close. The lychee and mango are not especially to my liking usually but it works well in this concoction.

Mouthfeel - creamy, good feel with a dry finish. Heavy carbonation which works well with a bigger beer.

Overall - a wonderful double IPA with plenty of fruit flavours especially a distinctive lychee and pineapple combination. Also plenty of bitterness and hop presence for hop head lovers. Highly recommended for all beer lovers.
