355ml brown bottle with pry off cap poured in a pint glass. From a Big Box o Beer 12 pack mixer with 606, Red Hammer and London Porter.

Copper/orange/amber in colour and clear. Offwhite head is very thin on the pour and quickly recedes to just a thin ring around the edge. Little pieces of lace here and there.

Strong aroma. Citrus hops, herbal hops, caramel malt and alcohol.

Strong citrus hops off the start, quickly morphs into big chewy malts before the alcohol burn hits right before the finish.

Medium bodied with minimal carbonation. Has a bit of an oily quality to the mouthfeel.

Overall, one of the more balanced Double IPAs I've had. It's so drinkable that the alcohol kind of sneaks up on you.

Catching up on more reviews from notes.
Draft pint at Beer Revolution in Calgary.

This beer is slightly hazy, amber-orange colo. Foamy, off white head, which leaves some thin lace around the glass as it recedes. It has lots of citrus hop smells, but also some toffee or caramel malt. The taste has the same caramel malt, and lots of bitter citrus, earthy, leafy hop goodness. Low level of carbonation, smooth, slick (but not flat). Piny hop finish. Medium pushing towards full body.
More woody, earthy hops reminded me of an English IPA.
Good, I will have again.

Appearance - Pours a cloudy brown sugar hue with 1/2 finger width of bubbly head.

Smell - Citrus, pine, sweet aromas like caramel. Hops are mild in the smell.

Taste - Welcomed by a nice citrus flavour, followed by powerful hops. Touch of sweetness is detected. Pleasant bitter aftertaste from the hops.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with light carbonation. Creamy and a touch silky.

Overall - A pleasant DIPA from Paddock Wood. I quite enjoyed the balance of citrus and hops flavours, along with the touch of caramel sweetness. This is some potent stuff! Definitely worth a try for those familiar with the style. One of the better DIPAs I have had.

been eyeing this one up for a while... and hey, figured it's worth my first review.

as soon as i opened opened it, the room was immediately filled with mouth-watering citrus-y, floral hoppiness. poured a nice, clear copper-orange. after reading the write-up on the box i was expecting something a little crazier, but loki stands as a nicely balanced DIPA coming from a part of canada where you're hard-pressed to find anything besides rickard's or keith's. love the citrus notes... centennial hops? at 8.7% ABV it's hardly sessionble... but bonus points to paddock wood for hiding the alcohol so well. doesn't shine a light to red racer IPA but is still worth a try if you like the style.

Bottle from biboergosum. Thanks for this one.

A - Pours with a nice two finger, cream coloured head. Seems creamy. Slightly hazy with stuff suspended there. Medium carbonation. Copper colour. Good lacing with good retention with a half finger.

S - Mango, pineapple. Good grapefruit, breadiness.

T - Sweet up front with lot's of tropical fruit. Prickly pineapple and a little sugary.

M - Full body with good carbonation and slihgtly bitter.

O/D - Not too shabby. Not over the top but pretty standard and well made.

Copper amber with a decent, slightly creamy white head. Citrus, sourdough, yeast and malt in the scent. Nothing terribly spectacular, but what I expect from this style.

A bit maltier taste than expect. Not to say the hops aren't noticeable, but the malt is actually quite strong in this. Bready, toffee yeast flavour with a solid bitter, citrus malt backing. Probably one of the more malt heavy DIPAs I've had.

Mildly strong carbonation, but not overly done. A little bit overwhelming with the ABV, the alcohol burn and the carbonation, but not a bad beer. The bottle size is just right.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance. Deep copper-amber, almost clear after a careful pour. Good 2 finger headof thick, sticky pale yellow.

Smell. Fruity hops and booze. Peaches, pineapple, grass, and grapefruit. Some toasty grain too.

Taste. Thick sweet caramel and light grains. Pears and pineapple with bitter, grassy, herby, piney hops. Lots of citrus rind in the end. Pretty complex for an ipa.

Mouthfeel. Medium-full body, medium-low carbonation. Some warm alcohol.

Overall. A decent sipper. A little boozier than I personally like my IIPAs, but works with the balanced complexity.

A - Pours a cloudy deep amber with a finger of off-white head. Decent retention.

S - Smells of citrus and floral hops. Malty background. Pretty low on the hop aroma for a double. Can't hide the alcohol even.

T - Best part of the beer is here, luckily. Nice and complex. First you get a very enjoyable hop flavor, citrus, floral, grassy and even spicy. Balanced by a malty sweetness, honey and bread. Quite a treat, although 2 sips in and I can already feel my head flushing.

M - Big bodies (typical for DIPA), a bit oily I find though.

D - DIPAs aren't high on drinkability, but in it's class this one is fair.
