3.34/5  rDev -14.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into standard pint glass

Smell: cat pee and ripe pineapple

Appearance: slightly cloudy, medium amber. Minimal head (maybe 1/4") that dissipates quickly leaving a narrow ring. Lacing non-existent.

Taste: super citrusy on the front of the tongue. Big upfront punch of tangerines and lemons, that mellows to a metallic aftertaste.

Mouth feel: very light carbonation. Despite the 9 per cent alcohol, it is an easy drinking, quaffable brew

Overall: a decent brew, but the smell of cat pee is a bit overpowering. Would not buy again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

(3.75) A: Clear copper with a thin semi-creamy head that promptly recedes to a ring. However some good lacing is evident.

(4.0) S: Lots of pine, toffee, grapefruit pith, orange, and buttery bread. This has that nice full earthy/musky aroma of a good double IPA.

(4.0) T: Very piney, citrus fruits, some toffee, slight nutty elements, and buttered bread. Heavily hopped creating quite a bitterness with a modest finishing dryness as well. That musky quality is coming through in the flavour nicely. The alcohol is well hidden considering this is 9%.

(3.75) M: Full bodied with a moderate carbonation. Oily and creamy with a bit of resin-like texture.

(4.0) D: This was a very good double IPA and in hindsight should’ve picked up another bottle or two at the retail store. This has all the trademark qualities of a good IIPA.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of citrusy hops with light floral notes and some sweet malt y notes. Taste is also dominated by some floral citrusy hops notes with a medium sweet malt backbone. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Enjoyable but nothing to really write home about.

Deep amber orange colour with two fingers of white head, some lace. Smell is loaded with fruit up front, orange and pineapple dominate, citrusy with a light lingering pine presence, sweet candy/sugar cookie like malts as well. Taste is also quite fruity with tropical/citrus flavours, orange, melon, pineapple, a bit of sweetness mid palate with a bit of pine resin flavour also, moderatley bitter throughout. Mouthfeel is oily and quite slick, mildly carbonated and fairly full bodied. Really quite nice and actually prefered the bottled version at home to the draft version but something I will certainly order again.

Serving type: on-tap

On-tap at the new Amsterdam brewhouse.

The beer is amber with a good-sized off0white head. Nice retention and lacing.

Nose contains bright citrus scents. Very hoppy, with grapefruit sticking out, as well as some pine. Caramel is there too.

Taste is very nice, citrus with grapefruit and some orange. Some tropical flavours as well. a bit of melon. Nice malt backbone, caramel malt there. Big flavour and quite nice.

Full bodied, moderately carbonated. Oily.

Overall, very nice. I was quite impressed by this one. I hope it is now part of the regular lineup. No doubt one of the best DIPAs in Ontario.

3.78/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance – Deep amber colour with a very nice clarity. Nice thin layer of creamy stable head with excellent lacing that clings to the side of the glass. A few swirls of the glass and the head springs back to life with a thick creamy texture.

Aroma – Gentle but prominent citrus and pine aromas mix well together along with a distinct sweet almost honey quality balancing it all out. A hint of berries accents the sweet malt character.

Taste – A nice malt forward initial taste that flows directly into a strong but well balanced bitterness. The malt creates a strong base to highlight the mix of citrus and pine that leads into a smooth resinous finish. At 9% A.B.V the hop forward taste of this beer balances the higher alcohol nicely.

Mouthfeel – Smooth slightly viscous mouthfeel that coats the tongue and warms the back of your throat. Low carbonation accents to smooth viscosity of his imperial IPA.

Got this bottle in a trade with Richard, atomeyes! This is a very good iipa from this brewer. I believe i never had a beer before from them. Poured in my Struise glass this beer looks very nice with it's nice head.

This is how a beer from this type should be. Liked it. The cirta hops were very noticable and the alcohol was pretty well hidden.
