A heavily-hopped, West Coast-style IPA. Bold, complex flavors with a solid malt backbone and assertive hop profile, along with cold conditioning give this beer its crisp, clean finish.

tom10101 (5215) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2015
Can (12 oz) bought @ Bier Cellar (Portland, ME). Shared @ Hotel Room Tasting.

Appearance: Clear amber with a small off-white head and little lacing.

Aroma: Caramel, earthy notes, leafy hops, a bit of soap and spicy wood.

Taste: Caramel, soap (a tad more than in the aroma), earthy notes, cedar, leafy notes and mild bitterness.

Palate: Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Earthy and cedar finish.

Overall: Decent. Lack a bit of balance and drinkability. An easy one to forget.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2015
Location: 12 oz can from Nikki’s Liquor, 4/5/15

Aroma: The aroma is citrus, pine, and resin, with a good amount of caramel malt.
Appearance: It pours an amber color, murky, with an off-white head and rather heavy lacing.
Flavor: Medium-plus bitter, citrus, pine, resin, and a strong caramel malt backbone for the style.
Palate: Medium-plus body, soft-to-average carbonation, and a clean, dry finish.
Overall Impression: This is a pretty nice one. It has a bigger than expected malt backbone, and plenty of hop bitterness to hold up to it. Good beer.

Metalflake (73) - Les Coteaux, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2015
12oz can bought at Craft Beer Cellar in Waterbury, VT. The guys from the brewery were there hawking their wares, and who was I to say no? Poured into a Shaker, bright orange colour with a 1cm head that stuck around a good long while. Classic IPA aromas - citrus, pine resin, tropical spices (mace, cloves, maybe a hint of anise) and a biscuity, bready note underneath. Pleasantly bitter, not imperial/double in-your-face bitter but bitter nonetheless, with a good, slightly sweet malt heart. Lively carbonation, crisp finish with a piney aftertaste that begs another sip. An excellent representation of the style - I’d buy more.

Une cannette. Une mousse abondante trône sur un liquide doré passablement foncé. Un nez frais de houblon herbeux réussit a percer cette muraille de mousse. Une bouche classique d’IPA amère. Très herbeuse.

Une canette entre deux ratings du EBF. Bière ambrée avec sa mousse beige. Dentelle déroulée sur la paroi de mon verre. Au nez, céréales toastées et caramélisées avec des houblons qui présentent des parfums d’oranges, de pêches et de bois. En bouche, c’est comme une marmelade d’agrumes et de fruits du verger avec des conifères et des malts caramélisés bien soutenants. En bouche, le corps est de moyenne densité avec un pétillement bien fait et une texture crémeuse. En finale, c’est bien floral, boisé et terreux. Pas mauvais du tout!

Middling marks all the way through for this brew. Nothing stands out but nothing brings it down either.

luttonm (4529) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Can in Seattle. A nice treat. Sweet grapefruit, plenty of juicy hops up front. Medium grainy hop body. Definitely a West Coast attempt, and it works pretty well. Sweet, clean, dry-bitter towards finish. Easy, tasty bitter drinker.

trapped (2146) - New York, TURKEY - FEB 17, 2015
Draught @ Ginger Man. Clear amber color with medium sized off white foamy head, faint hops aroma, well-balanced sweetish hoppy taste, full body, low carbonation, medium finish. Quite a smooth IPA.
