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.

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.

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.

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.

Bottle purchased at the brewery's new (to me) Toronto location last week-end. Wish I'd picked up more!

Pours an oily, clear amber with honey tones. The minimal off-white head disappears more quickly than I'd expected, especially given its excellent mouthfeel. Beautiful "west coast" aroma is a nice mix of bitter resin and candied tropical fruits. The flavour has all the hops for which I'd hoped, but with a surprisingly stiff malt back bone. Lots of depth to the body, and a finish that lingers with scarily little trace of the 9% ABV.

A DIPA of which Ontario and Amsterdam can be very proud.

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.
