SlovakSniper (5073) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - APR 20, 2015
Toujours en provenance de chez Mathieu L. Un liquide doré qui n’est pas filtré. Une tête blanche un peu sale qui laisse des traces. Un nez aux herbes, aux fleurs et aux agrumes poivrés. Un goût piquant avec un aspect floral et un côté pamplemousse bien développé. J’ai la sensation de boire une Session IPA. Un corps moyen avec des bulles actives et une texture crémeuse. Une finale amère et acidulée. Franchement facile à boire. Manque cependant une couche supplémentaire au niveau de l’aromatique. Ceci dit, agréable jus jaune pour journée pluvieuse.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 17, 2015
Hazy golden pour with a thin white head and clinging lace. Lovely citrus hop, fresh gummy aroma. Lovely citrus hop flavour with a nice malt background. Extremely well balanced beer. Great beer.

DuffMan (9538) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 16, 2015
Bottle, shared with Parksy and phantomhennes, sent to me by Robbie, muled from Ontario by Pam. Very hazy golden body, thick lasting white head. Tropical fruit and gooseberries, more cat pee character than Cat Lady, oddly enough! Very enjoyable.

Tasting at Matt’s
Cloudy golden color. Pungent citrusy aroma, it has a hint of Nelson Sauvin, not just the expected aroma from Citra. Dry mouthfeel, easy malt flavor (we are in Session IPA field), strong bitterness, with some hop resins and some citrus peel.
Nice, but not impressive.

(bottle) hazy orange amber colour with a small white head; aroma of grapefruit; dry flavour with a long, light bitter finish; unbalanced

Ferris (12695) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2015
Bottle - Sweet tropical fruits. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Sweet tropical fruits and a mellow light pithy finish. Not bad.

mcberko (14361) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2015
500mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a cloudy dark orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out stinky feet, cat piss, and floral hops. Flavour is likewise pungent, with earthy herbal hops, light pepper, and some floral notes. Dry, earthy and pungent. Good, but not great.

GothGargoyle (2350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 4, 2015
Darkish yellow with a good white head. Aroma is fresh orange juice, orange blossom, hint of honey. Light bodied, well balanced in the palate with a lightly floral finish. Taste is orange blossom, chamomile. Tasty

Frothmeister (726) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours a cloudy light honey colour with a two finger head of fine cream coloured bubbles. The nose? Whoa. Fruit bomb. Grapefruit, pineapple, passion fruit, with resinous notes, and a light mineral scent. Taste wise, grapefruit, light resinous notes, and light basil with some faint malt underneath that leads into heavier resinous notes, graphite, and a sort of domestic malt note that peaks through near the bitter pith heavy finish. Solid. I’d buy it again.

MartinT (9319) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Chewy cereals ground this IPA’s citrusy tropical fruit profile, leading to sandy resins.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam laces around the cloudy blond.
-Hop bitterness is moderate for the style. This one focuses on aroma and flavor.
-Mouthfeel could be crisper, to my tastes.
-I preferred their Mosaic version when I went to the pub. Then again, that one was on tap at the source.
