3.5/5 rDev -11.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
650ml bottle from the lcbo. $5.95 served slightly chilled in a snifter.
A- Clear copper color with a white head of sticky foam. Lace and decent retention.
S- The aroma is not overpowering but does have nice floral hops with aromas of orange rinds and a flutter of grass and malt.
T- nice crackery malt sweetness up front, fresh bread, solid bitterness balances the beer. The bitterness is quite floral with citrusy undertones and nice hoppy finish. Apparently IBUs roll in around 85 but i cant say that i agree. As the flavors of nice piney hop oils are present they just don't overpower. Maybe because the brew is so well balanced. Nonetheless a great tasting well balanced DIPA.
M- Full bodied. Left my lips sticky. Great carbonation and perfect for the style.
D- Alcohol is very hidden and this is a good tasting beer. Dangerous combo.
Overall a good example of the style at the price that i feel is fair for a beer this big. Good all around.

Purchased at the LCBO for just under $8.00 for a 650ml bottle. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass
A- Opens well pouring a good white head. Clear and gold. Head lingers
S- EXCELLENT!! A lot of hops happening here at the lights out stage. WOW. When you take you time you find an abundance of malt.
T- Very good. Enjoyable not just for the above but that grapefruit goodness that is hops! All the hops though are at finishing and there is not much bitterness. Boil more in boys!
M- Pretty good and dry.
O- Very good. Expensive though. No hint of alcohol so go easy and don't drive.
This very good IPA goes well with... Sushi!

4.31/5 rDev +8.8%

Bright brass with crusty, snowy head.
Nose of powdered lemon drink mix and mint - intoxicating, never smelled anything like it – plus a whiff of citronella.
Floury tortilla, lots of lemon zest, herb, and citrus Vitamin water hops.
Lemondrop finish and ruthless grapefruit ring bitter linger.
Lt-med, oily, round, no burn, dry.
The light end of DIPAS, with lots of oil and a fair kick, too. All about the lemon. By turns delicate, pungent, and lingering. Very West Coast – does this better than many PDX beers. A step beyond for pale, clean DIPAs.
