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. (831 characters)

Cask at Bar Volo. Floral hop aroma. Hazy grapefruit coloured body. Above average mouthfeel. A good blend of malt and juicy hops, some sugar, aiding the palate. Above average DIPA.A sipper, still good drinkability for a 9% bitter beer.Some booziness in the finish. (263 characters)

Thanks for this and all of the killer brews, Liamt07! Cheers!!

Appearance. Pours a clear copper with half a finger of off white head.

Smell. Big grapefruit and tropical fruits, a little pine and some nice toasted caramel malts.

Taste. Nice big trpoical fruits and grapefruit rinds, sweet caramel malts, alcohol is really well hidden.

Mouthfeel. Medium+ body, medium-lowish carbonation.

Overall. I normally don't like such a sweet malt base with a big ipa, but this works great. Like canied tropical fruits and grapefruit rinds. Nice stuff. Thanks again Liam. (565 characters)

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. (393 characters)

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. (605 characters)
