I will be biased on this review, as Loki is by far my favorite Imperial IPA. It manages to perfectly balanace it's ABV and hops to deliever a truly expectional brew. It might just be my personal palate, but I've tried quite a few other Imperial IPA's and none of them manage to find the balance that Loki delivers. If you manage to find this on tap, make sure you order a few pints.

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.

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.
