3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Jean-Michael, thanks! Pours a nice golden with a medium white head that leaves great lacing patterns. Nose is of tropical fruits, pine, some sugar and... wheat? It isn’t listed on the bottle but this is the impression I got. Taste is fruity and bitter, not overly sweet but certainly not dry. Some floral hops. Body is medium, carbonation too. Hops were just a touch harsh but I really enjoyed that one still.

Pours amber with low beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of fruits, tropical stuff, citrus. Taste is of tropical fruits, citrus, bitterness, soap, slight malty/caramel twist. Palate: Light-medium body. Soft carbonation. Overall: Just a tad too much caramel in there for my liking, but certainly not striaght-up unbalanced. Good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bouteille de 600 ml achetée sur place à la brasserie. Dégustée le 22 août 2013 (Shaker). Bière ambrée limpide. Mousse assez lorsque versée, col blanc moyen crémeux, très persistant. Très effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur de sucre brûlé marquée, de caramel. Plutôt corsée en amorce, saveur de pamplemousse marquée et un peu de résine (pin). Se boit bien, très typée pamplemousse comme IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light rust colour, with a thin white head.
On the nose, from the bottle there is wet cereal, and malts. From the glass however it has distinct piney aroma, one expects from American West Coast IPAs.
On the palate, more of the hoppy pine. Not as strong as some of the IPAs I have drunk, but a nice entry in Beau’s typically mild offerings.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A middling IPA. The hops are stale and grassy with a dirty mouthfeel and an overly sweet flavor of caramel at the beginning. Picked up in Toronto in 2013.
