On tap at Albion. The color is a clear honey with a thick beige head. The aroma is of hops and citrus fruits and mora hops. The taste also of glorius hops plus citrus fruits and herbs.It has a very pleasant after taste.

My Bottom Line:
Tropical fruit burst from this IPA, leading to herbal bitterness and honeyed cereals.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-There is plenty of lacing around the misty pale amber.
-The mouthfeel is cushy and plump. Different from your usual New World IPA (the tap version might be more commonplace though).
-Passionfruit notes are beautiful throughout.
-The hop bitterness isn’t too intense. This is an aroma bomb.

On cask at the brewpub.

July 19, 2015. On tap at the brewpub.
Clear pale amber with a smal white head. Aroma is sweet fruity with melon, papaya, gooseberries, grapes, pine and light grassiness. Taste is light to medium sweet, soft bitter with a light grassy notes, some grape skins, pineapple and melon. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, somewhat creamy.

Une autre très bonne bière de ce brasseur à succès. Un nez de fleurs aux conifères et sauvignon. Une bouche avec des beaux malts et des fruits. Facile à boire.

Complexité étonnante et plaisante au nez. Fruité du Nelson, conifère, bouquet floral et herbes. Malts mielleux et vin blanc. Les fruits sont explosifs sur les papilles. La finale est incroyablement longue et tellement fruitée. Corps un peu mou. Fantastique.

Stoned99 (1269) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2015
12 ounces on tap at brewpub. Aroma: tropical fruits, pineapples, oranges. App: clear copper, small white head, nice laing. Taste and palate: medium body, resinous, crisp medium bitter finish. Overall: really impress. Not a huge fan of Nelson Sauvin hop but here it?s great. After a while, it’s skunky though

On tap at L’Albion. Pours hazy dark blond with low white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of extreme pine, fruits, alcohol. Taste is of extreme pine, citrus, bitterness. Palate: Medium body. Soft carbonation. Overall: Crafty hopping. Spectacular Nelson Sauvin. Never harsh, well balanced. Very good.

On tap @ L’Albion. Hazy golden with a medium fully lasting off-white head and heavy lacing. Aroma is of dank piney hops, white wine notes, floral presence and hints of caramel. Taste is a bit fruitier with, again, piney notes, white wine and floral presence along light bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Dry and fruity finish. Good aromatic IPA/DIPA. Alcohol is really well hidden. Really tasty and drinkable.

Drank on tap (12 oz) at the brepub on August 6, 2012. Honey blonde little head. Sweet citrus aroma well hops, hints of pine. Good taste of fruity citrus Nelson Sauvin hops, well dried, slightly bitter. Albion itself or the Nelson Sauvin but it’s good in the mouth!
