I believe this came and went last year.


I remember seeing it on room temperature LCBO shelves last year with no bottling date info. It's hard to justify buying unless you're a big fan of the brand.

I recall trying it last year and it was quite good, better than Brutal in my opinion. Their best IPA, and probably my favourite Rogue product the LCBO has brought up is Yellow Snow, but sadly it hasn't been back for a few years. I've found the more recent Rogue releases to be pretty hit or miss, and don't get me started on the endless wave of those bizarre dessert flavoured beers. One was enough.

Checking my untappd, I bought/drank it sometime around April 17th 2015 and it had a production date of Dec 23, 2014. Didn't give it a very good rating.

Beau's Fous Allies Mango Saison 600ml

Had this and Beau's Patio Saison a few months ago and gotta say I wasn't a fan of the Mango Saison. The Patio Saison was fantastic however.


Agreed. Won't be paying 8 bucks for this but would gladly dish it out for Patio. Matt's Sleepytime Stout was great as well, would love to see it get an individual release.


I liked the Tom Green Milk Stout too

You're making me think that maybe I did try this last year. Now it's ringing a bell but I don't remember it. If I see it I'll probably give it (another?) shot.

Checked my notes and it had a lot going on from a hop perspective (what with 7 different kinds), pretty juicy with a good malt backbone. It was approaching IIPA territory. I checked the LCBO website though and couldn't find any stock though, so beware as this might be a straggler from last year. I couldn't find any bottling dates or info when I had it either.

Edit: Never mind that last part, reading comprehension... I just noticed you said saw it on the website, not in stores. I guess it's coming back.

Thanks for the heads up. What was your verdict on the Delicious IPA?

It had lots of lemony hop resonance on tap. As I said, the beer lacked nothing tangibly.

Tried this on tap Friday and I agree completely. Big lemony hop character with a lean malt profile and resiny-bitter finish; delicious and moreish despite the 7.7% ABV. Would not know this beer is gluten free/gluten reduced were it not for the brewery marketing it that way. Great quaff.

Immodest is showing stock at some LCBOs, mostly in Toronto. I just grabbed six at the King & Spadina location. Canned March 17.

$5 is a great price for a DIPA in a tall can. That's what Great Lakes was charging for Robohop and Life Sentence at their bottle shop. I don't mind the price anyway.

Not sure about a 'great' price.. but I can believe it is a fair price..

Great price would be $1.95 :)

Ah, I remember when Sinha was around that price point. In the last few years, it's gone up by over 30%!
