yourilevesque (130) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2015
Liquide mi-opaque et d’un orange cuivré inspirant, cette bière propose sous son collet de mousse blanche, un nez bien balancé de grains légèrement rôtis et de houblons frais. De légères arômes d’épinette et de sous-bois après la pluie percent la couverture de mousse blanche qui fond comme neige au soleil du printemps. L’alcool aussi est présente et ajoute une touche de chaleur très agréable. En bouche la bière jouit d’un équilibre malt-houblon tout à fait remarquable. Le palais évolue en trois actes: d’abord c’est le malt. Celui-ci est à la fois onctueux, rond et résineux - voire terreux. Il offre une assise solide au houblon qui prend la relève et pousse les saveurs vers des horizons étonnement légers et tropicaux. La finale est longue, amère et laisse même la bouche un peu pâteuse. Bière complexe aux saveurs évolutives, celle-ci me réjouit en cette rigoureuse journée d’hiver canadien! Je la recommande avec des fromages forts à pâte ferme.

CowBug (1) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2015 does not count
Pour yields a thin white head that nearly disappears completely. Moderately murky amber colour. Bright grapefruit aromas shine through, overwhelming the mild malt flavours. This beer has a long, welcome finish, moderate carbonation, with subtle pine notes that emerge as the beer warms.

UXO (601) - CANADA - FEB 28, 2015
Pours hazy medium amber with three fingers of rocky light beige head, excellent retention and lacing. (5/5) Nose is pithy grapefruit, orange peel, pine resin, mild tropical fruit, caramel malt. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry bitter finish. (4/5) Nice full-bodied IPA. A little on the malty side, but not overly so. Decent body, slightly chewy. Well-integated ABV that doesn’t intrude. Would kinda like to see brighter hops, though. Pretty darn good overall. (16/20)

RuneStumo (2294) - FØRRESFJORDEN, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2015
17.02.2015. On tap at Corks Beer & Wine bar, Toronto. Amber colour and kind of dark for an ipa. White head. Malty aroma as well as lots of hop. Its fresh with good flavours of herbs and spruce. Bitter aftertaste, that keaves a dry mouth. Good beer!

Gluepot (101) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2015
Fresh, punchy taste and nose permeate this IPA. The nose has an intriguing mixture of fresh hops, roasty caramel and malt and a hint of vanilla. The taste has a solid but non-astringent bitterness with some pine accents. The hops are underlayed by very tasty rich and sweet malt. Poppin’ balanced taste in this Amsterdam Breweries creation. A real treat.

Patrickctenchi (4449) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Can: Cloudy, dirty brown with a small beige head. Old fruits, orange-peel aroma. Taste is orange malt, caramel malt, orange/grapefruit peel. Nicely fruited....solid peel hops.

shrubber85 (8323) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Can. Lightly musty orange malt and grapefruit peel aroma. Cloudy amber with large light tan head. Sweet orange malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Lingering hops in the finish.

wolffish (291) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2015
La mousse est quasi absente. C’est boisé, ça sent la fumée de tourbe et un peu terreux... Au goût, c’est bien sucré et je perçois du sarrazin (je suis peut-être dans le champs). À la fin de verre, c’était plus fruité; cerises, cassis et prunes.

shdougan (48) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
Pours a nice hazy dark amber with a thin white head. Strong citrus aromas, lots of grapefruit, and notes of pine. Has a medium-full body with an average carbonation, a very refreshing brew. Has a really nice sweet grapefruit-like flavor that introduces a gradually building bitterness that compliments the malt backbone quite well. Very good, very interesting IPA.

Franckg (251) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
Odeur de houblons frais et de pin. En bouche, c’est plutôt léger (et dangereux) pour du 7.1% ABV. Le pamplemousse et le citron sont dominant avec des pointes de résine de pin. Très frais. L’amertume est modérée avec un bon goût d’agrumes amères. Très bonne ipa pour les journées ensoleillées.
