1 pint can, not sure if fresh or not. Pours a clear golden with a medium white head that leaves good lacing but fail early. Nose is of caramel, fruits, herbs and grass. Taste is sweet and offers flavors of caramel. Some moderate bitterness but not nearly enough. Body is medium-full and carbonation moderate. Weird syrupy mouthfeel. Overall it was subpar even for an oldschool IPA. Meh.

Airport bar: gold pour quick head. Aroma is piney, biscuity malt. Flavour is dry-ish biscuity malt. Piney. Hint of lemon peel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Whatup14 (1183) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2015
En fût à l’aéroport. Couleur jaune-orangée pâle translucide, mousse blanc cassé ayant une bonne tenue. Arôme de houblon floral, malt. Goût de houblon floral, diacétyle, bonne amertume, pamplemousse en arrière-goût. Carbonatation moyenne, corps moyen.

Franckg (590) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2015
En fût. Arômes de houblons terreux, herbes, pamplemousse passé date. En bouche, pas vraiment mieux. Un goût de malt tranchant et sec vient agresser les papilles suivi d’un goût de gazon et de foin. On dirait une Labatt 50 houblonnée. Correcte pour boire à leur pub avec une assiette de nachos mais sans plus.

marcusketchup (6) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2015 does not count
The bitterness is soft for an IPA, but the hop taste is present. Over-carbonated can and some sediments, not like usual lees. It’s a good beer at a fair price which is easy to find in many stores.

Draught at Archibald - Aéroport de Montréal; 6% ABV
Golden color. It has the malt and hop profile of an APA, not an IPA, with a grainy, cereally accent; the hoppy is lightly grassy.
Oh, well, of course, this is not the West Coast…

Pronounced honey scent. Bitterness is present in mouth. Floral aftertaste. Okay beer but not one of my favorite.

I’m not quite sure what the point of this stuff is. I tried it years ago, and remembered not being impressed. In this case, memory served. It pours awful nice, but the nose is mostly caramel, stale hops and diacetyl. Taste seems less buttery, and there’s some bland bitterness to the finish, but overall this stuff is pretty blah.

Can @the Keg Steakhouse drank on Jan 27th. Aroma: Metallic, somehow fruity and some caramel, earthy.App: semi hazy copper with minimal white head. Taste and Palate: Doesn’t taste much, tastes metallic, light-medium body, light bitter finish. Overall: Where to start... Probably the best beer you can get at the Keg Steakhouse but probably one of the worst IPA I’ve had. Lacks bitterness, aroma is unpleasant, taste is bland.

Pours a hazy copper with two fingers of frothy off-white head. Carbonation is subtle. The nose is grassy and floral but I wouldn’t go as far as to say it was resinous. Some caramel malts come through nicely. The taste is representative of the aroma with an off-set from the hops. The brew feels moderately dense and offers an enjoyable finish.
