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.

Purchased at the LCBO for a might steep $16.95 for a 6pk. I say again MIGHTY steep for a 6pk of 341ml bottles. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass.

A- Opens well and pours a 1/4" high white head that films out within a minute. Rather dark gold colour and filtered clear. Has a touch of a red hue to it.

S- Not what I expected. This has a mellow scent. Not a lot here.

T- Very boneshaker style so citra hops. Also tastes like some cascade, Columbus and Chinook hops are in there as it has that certain bitter bite to it. Has quite a bit of heat. Due to the selection of hops you get your standard grapefruit flavor. Overall the malt is heavy but this is a DIPA for you.

M- Creamy and sticky

O- I like the brew ok but prefer Boneshaker believe it or not. This brew can benefit from a lightening of the sugar and addition of some depth by blending in some moderate flavor hops such as a fuggle. Yes it's not the rage but if the blend is right it will definitely make this one a 4.5 on the flavor scale. Not pinning it down to fuggle but just a bit of contradictory to the "C" hop base.

Food Pairing

This nice little DIPA went very well with...... BBQ hamburger with cheese, tomato, onion, mayo on the bun with a pickle on the side.

Enjoy!!

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.
