Notes/Commercial Description:
Uh, we forget...Oh Yeah, this is a big beer. Mind blowing amounts of hops give this beer tons of flavour and aroma. Not for the faint of heart. The bigger, meaner cousin to the Hop Circle IPA.

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.

Food Pairing

This very good IPA goes well with... Sushi!

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.

650ml bottle poured into a snifter

A : the pour is light golden yellow with 1 finger of fluffy white head, slow dissipation into thin even lace

S : plenty of piney hops and citrus, a bit boozy

T : loads of hops and citrus at the start and throughout, grapefruit, pineapple and mango, some mild but noticeable bready malts, big bitter hop filled finish

M : big body, medium-high carbonation, dry finish

O : a very good double IPA, fresh and loaded with hops, very enjoyable.

Deliciousness in a can - the tallest beer can I've ever seen, 567ml.

Pours a wonderful honey orange with a thick white head, just how I like it.

Wonderful citrus, mango and piney hop aroma with some malty sweetness added into the mix.

Tastes like the sweet nectar from the tits of the Goddess of Hops herself.

Definitely try this if you're ever in BC!
