Purchased at the LCBO for around $6.00 or so for a 650ml bottle. Served at 6deg C in a draught glass
A- Opens well. Pours a good head that dissipates to a film within a minute. Dark amber
S- More malt than hop.
T- Lots of hops. Malt galore. Not much else.
M- Pretty dry yet creamy. Good job
O- Just missed out by not having finishing hops. Too bad
This pretty good malty hoppy beer goes well with... Chili!!

Tree Brewing's 'Hop Head Double IPA' @ 8.0% , served from a 6pack of 330 ml bottles purchased for $13
A-pour is a slight pale gold from the bottle to a murky amber in the glass with a small off-white head leaving a spotty lace along the pint
S-bigger pine presence than citrus , also a solid malt presence in the background
T-big beer , big taste , big hops , tad harsh on the swallow
MF-ok/good carbonation , big full body
Ov-ok beer , "rather heavy handed" - pocket beer guide , I agree !

Got this one at the LCBO.
From a bomber into a snifter
APPEARANCE: Pours a one finger, medium looking, fluffy, off-white head with very good retention. Cloudy burnt orange with no real carbonation evident. Head slowly fades to a full wisp and sticks to the sides of the glass. A splotchy wisp remains and leaves some decent lacing down the glass.
SMELL: Pale malts, caramel, honeydew melon, toffee and some floral hops. Bold enough, but much the same as it's little brother.
TASTE: Pale malts, caramel and toffee, with a bitter-sweet and slightly boozy finish. Medium but lingering finish of bitter, floral hops, toffee sweetness and some spicy alcohol. Tastes much like their regular IPA with some more booze.
PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamier and smoother going down, finishing slightly sticky. A touch of booze lingers on the palate. Bigger with more residual sweetness, making it solid for the style.
OVERALL: This is just a bigger version of the regular IPA, which I guess really isn't a surprise. Flavors are much the same with more alcohol presence. Here is an example where bigger doesn't always mean better, as the extra booze presence doesn't make it any more interesting or enjoyable. Still a good beer, though not all that special.

Poured from a 650ml bottle. Pours and orange colour. The nose has big caramel malt notes along with canned pineapple and and grapefruit from the hops. Taste has more of the same: canned pineapple, peach, caramel and an earthy, hugely bitter finish. Tasty.
