Not really sure why it’s called an IPA... bread, hay, citrus, floral, Golden Amber color, clear, nice white head.medium bitterness, light sweetness, light body, creamy, soft carbonation, light bitter finish. The kind of beer you keep in the fridge as an everyday refreshing beer. Not bad, but not a real IPA in my mind.

UXO (1497) - CANADA - AUG 26, 2016
Appearance: hazy medium gold with one finger of rocky white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (3/5) Aroma: pine, earth, pale malt. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry bitter finish. (4/5) Not quite as good as the white version, which was at least fairly citrus-dominant. This starts off a bit piney, but then becomes more earthy, tending to muddy. English means noble hops, and earthy kind of goes with the territory there, sure, but this seems a bit muddled. Not terrible, and at least it’s got an unabashed lingering bitterness going for it. (13/20)

vadie (1231) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2016 Jaune avec une petite robe blanche. Presque pas d?arôme. Peut être un peu de caramel et d?houblon. .. en bouche c?est lourde avec plein de sucre résiduel. Pas bien équilibré. Une amertume moyenne et un après goût amer mais ça laisse aussi un saveur de sucre en bouche.

Kauge (1591) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 4, 2016
Tap at Le Saint-Bock in Montréal. Damn, didn’t suspect I’d have an AB InBev from such a nice place... Anyway, barely translucent orange with nice off-white head. Nose and flavour grassy, citric-resiny. Veers towards bitterness, the sweetness rather restrained. Peachier as it warms. Nothing much to criticise on the palate... Mixed feelings. Not saying it’s good but it ain’t too bad either... Better than many independently brewed IPA-s in Canada.

Diogène (1145) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2016
Can. Hazy yellow/orange with a medium white head with good rentention and great lacing. Aroma is sweet malt, corn, muddy waters. Flavor is sweet malt, alcohol, corn and a bitter aftertaste. No aroma and a sharp bitterness

mathieuc (3333) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2015
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.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 29, 2015
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 (1616) - 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 (1183) - 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.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
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…
