99/747) Caffe Volo: XS Imperial IPA by Rogue Brewery of Oregon: **: 9.5%; earthy hop nose; bitter hop notes;
100/748) Caffe Volo: 6-4-3 Double IPA by Left Field Brewery of Ontario: ***; 8.4%; bright orangey yellow; earthy, sweet, tropical, almost wine-like nose with resiny citrusy hop notes; a "wow" moment, this has become my favourite DIPA; if you see it on the chalkboard, order it;
101/749) Caffe Volo: Immodest Imperial IPA by Nickel Brook of Ontario: **; 9.3%; nose is bitter but there are sweet, citrusy, resiny notes; strong hop flavours with mildly sweet fruity finish;
I have seen photos of bottles of Left Field Brewery's products but I have no idea whether or not they have an outlet where I can buy their wares. So far, no reply to my query by way of the Contact Us button. No fooling, this is a great beer and I will travel to find it.
I guess it was a night for IPAs. I met an interesting fellow named Andrew who has draught lines in basement! What a guy!
