Dark luminous amber with plenth of foam. Big aromas of the whole universe of hops. Wind through the pines and across the rotting fruit pile. Taste is fruity yet dark. Woody but sweet. Tangerine and orange marmalade.

Sharp mouthfeel. This is really pretty whacky and interesting. Intense but not unbearably bitter. The current version is 8% according to the label. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Haggen Market in Burlington, Wash.

On draft at Craft, Vancouver.
Glowing ruby-amber with sepia crust.
Red berry, nectar, jam and a bit of toffee on the nose.
Danish pastry, herbs, citronella, red Twizzlers, then blood orange, pine sap, and red grapefruit hops.
Strawberry finish and Berocca linger.
Medium, sticky, well chewy, some oil.

Galaxy, Columbus, Cascade + Zythos.

Big and fruity. IBUs over aroma, amber more than DIPA. Nice and juicy; hops and malts both there.

Just so red!

Back again and way better than last time. Huge Dank nose with hops to burn in the taste. One of the biggest DIPAs in BC that really showcases the hop mix. Dead Frog impresses in 2014 and this beer is one their best . Among the very best of Canada's DIPAs.

Pours toffee amber color with thoj off white head with good retention and lacing. Tons of earthy piney hops in the aroma and a touch of onion. There is a decent malt backbone here - a bread and cracker bass that lets the hops shine.
Lots of bitterness with wood and earth bitterness dominating. Finishes with a lingering bitterness as well. Medium body and carbonation. Not a bad double IPA.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

A: Nice dark amber, fair amount of carbonation (about an inch of light, white head) - poured into an IPA glass
S: Strong hop aroma, slight citrusy and a bit piny, pretty much what you would expect from an IIPA - get some of the alcohol as well
T: Very hoppy, but not overwhelmingly bitter (very drinkable for 93 IBU), some piny and citrusy notes, with a nice hop sweetness
M: Medium to heavy body, slight carbonation, quite smooth
O: Very nice IIPA, would of liked to see a bit more complexity but overall a really good beer, quite drinkable for an IIPA, would LOVE to try this on tap

A: Nice colour with good carbonation and some lacing.

S: Nice sweetness with tropical aromas balancing the hops very well.

T: Some pine, citrus and lightly burned caramel. Really good actually. Well balanced.

M: Good body, just thick enough.

O: A strong contender for the best Double/Imperial IPA BC has to offer. Really not fond of the label design though, but what lies in the bottle comes as a great surprise!

9% ABV, 93 ibu, 650 ml bottle.
A - Hazy amber copper color, with two finger light milky yellow head. lacing.
S - grassy (dry hopped maybe?), grapefruit, piney, dank, mint, toffee, pear, syrup, dank, pumpkin pie, dried raisin. little bit tartness, dried lychee.
T - smooth tiny bubble body, good carbonation, mid heavy body. first hit with a massive bitterness, maltiness n sweetness balanced out, lingering, nice long lasting of the hop. some kinda islay whiskey after taste, the smoky.
O - it's batch #2 recipe, great IIPA!! smooth, massive bitterness, sticky ,syrupy, malty, bit of heat from the alcohol. delicious! will get it! (lesson learnt here is, ipa indeed should be drunk fresh, i have the second bottle two weeks later, the hoppiness is weaker.)
