On tap at the brewery - hoppy tasting flight. A clear amber gold, a nice balanced malty + hop aroma. Smooth and fairly soft mouthfeel. The taste is pine bark but pretty soft & inviting. Very earthy. A balanced bitter IPA.

12oz bottle that my brother found somewhere in town. Pours a orange-amber with a thin white head. Nose of caramel malts, a bit of grapefruit and something that reminded me of peppers? Caramel carries through taste-wise, smooth and flavorful. Pretty solid.

Flacatoune (5) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014 does not count
Arôme invitante citronnée et résineuse, d’apparence claire couleur ambrée et coiffée d’une belle mousse qui se dissipe dès les premières minutes mais laisse une jolie col. Saveurs complexe des houblons, à l’attaque c’est la résine de conifères, suivi du citron et en finale une bonne fraîcheur, presque menthe. Il y a un bel équilibre entre les malts et le houblon, la texture est soyeuse dû aux huiles essentielles dégagés par les houblons. Je suis charmée, pas comblée. Je n’hésiterai pas à revisiter un moment donné dans quelques mois peut-être.

Un merveilleux mariage entre le conifère et l’agrume! Une apparence claire et cuivrée, à la limite du rosé!

Tap, Office pub Toronto. Lovely amber beer, initially pine and spruce aromas but developing into a gorgeous dry jammy orange flavour which puts me in mind of mosaic hops. Up there with something that Kernel would produce.

Ketail (83) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
Bu le 17 juillet 2014 en fût au Pub Italia à Ottawa. Œil: ambrée-rousse, peu de mousse et légère dentelle qui persiste. Arôme: herbacé et résineux et légèrement perceptible arôme de caramel. Goût: belle amertume, houblonné et lors de la première gorgée, amertume intense et arrière-goût intense mais pour les gorgées suivante cela est moyen. Note: 4/5 à découvrir!

BrewGoblin (348) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
Damn tasty, it could be the new hardcore session beer for me if I had regular access to ’er. A touch of cloudiness on this rusty copper pour and an aroma of caramel paired with a juicy citrus, pine and floral hop barrage. It has a tropical leaning, but the palm trees are leaning and intertwined with pine trees and have glorious flowers a-planted neath them. The body is curvaceously sexy but not rotund and she has some pep in her step but won’t get the jump on you either.

Pours a murky golden orange color. Aromas of citrus hops, caramel malts. Flavor is bitter and hoppy with a touch of pepper/grapefruit with sweet malt.

Atheist_Peace (966) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
Rusted orange pour with an average eggshell head that’s a little short but lasts. Caramel, evergreen and grapefruit on the nose. The caramel really dominates the nose is a pleasant but un-IPA sort of way, leading me to believe this can may be a little aged. There’s still enough pine and grapefruit to tickle the taste buds. Finishes with a solid bitterness. Decent stuff but not mind blowing.

Can from LCBO. Pours a dark amber with an off white head. Aroma is rye bread, caramel, toast. Medium body, medium carbonation. There’s caramel, but not too sweet, rye bread, lemon, pine, wood, grapefruit... Solid bitterness which offsets the sweetness. Well balanced and tasty.
