Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. A double IPA that hits the bullseye. Though a big hop fix it was very drinkable to an old hophead associate, and I ordered it twice(as they only give you a smaller glass of it). A large retained head on cloudy grapefruit. A fuller and smooth mouthfeel, the latter noteable for the style. The palate is coaxed into being erased. Some grapefruit flavour.

From notes taken yesterday afternoon during a fantastic lunch at the brewery's restaurant.

Iridescent orange with minimal white head but impressive lacing. Aroma surprisingly limited - much less than I remember from earlier samples under the Sawdust City (collaborative) banner at Toronto's Session beer festival. However an amazingly powerful taste profile. Mango, pineapple and other tropical fruits make this a hop lover's dream. Other than a faint warmth in the finish, the 11% ABV is terrifyingly well hidden.

Definitely a DIPA and a brewery to watch.

On tap at bar hop. Light golden with good lacing. Unfortunately my review was deleted, so I will save all the details and summarize that it os a tasty dipa, aromas of resin, grapefruit, and pine spice, and malty notes. Taste has a lot of hop bitterness, pine resin, spicy citrus, and forest, and that for the strength it is incredibly drinkable with a nice balanced alcohol spice, but as a whole it is not an outstanding dipa, the flavour was thin at times, if only that the hood could have been brighter and less grungy and herbal. Fairly tasty and balanced but relied to much on the big resiny bitter finish to carry the flavour. Good allround, and a good addition to try but I would hesitate to have it on a regular basis other than a heavy hop fixer.

Hazy pale orange-amber colour, ring of off white head, good amount of lace too. Smell is of big bitter hops, a ton of citrus fruit, grapefruit, pineapple, orange and mango, pine as well and just a sugestion of malt. Taste is in line with the nose, big bitterness up front, orange and grapefruit flavours, lightly sweet mid palate with a moderate malt bill. Lightly carbonated, oily and big bodied. Solid DIPA here, worth coming back to many times over in the near future.
