A hop lover’s delight, this American India Pale Ale is brewed with over 1.5 lbs. of hops per barrel. As with all IPAs, this beer is higher in alcohol, hop aroma and bitterness than regular pale ales, and you don’t have to sail to India to enjoy it.

mathieuc (2683) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2016
Pours a clesr golden with a white rim that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of caramel, cereals and light fruits. Taste is of caramel and soap (old style IPA?) And just too sweet for my taste. Medium body, medium carbonation and a oily/sticky mouthfeel. OK but certainly the worst of this flight so far.

SlovakSniper (4378) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2016
En fût sur place. Ipa de vieille génération. Caramel et Cascade. Pin. Mince en bouche. En manque de corps. Finale amère. St-Ambroise IPA. Un peu beurre. Buvable. Rien de catastrophique. La serveuse est un peu bête et le tapis d’entrée sent la vielle lavette de cuisine. La place est désertique. Et les toilettes sont sales en crisse.
