glennmastrange (2145) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Tap. light to moderate caramel for the malt, heavy orange for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with faint light dried fruits and sulfur in the background. Head is average size, creamy, white with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is slightly hazy light amber/orange. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly acidic, then the long finish is lightly acidic and heavily to harshly bitter. Palate is medium, a bit slick, with a soft carbonation and a dry finish. A bold and powerful IPA. The hops will wreck you for further beer tasting for the day.

AlainG (1035) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
Version en cask. Elle est orangée opaque sans grande coiffure. Un nez de pamplemousse et d’oranges fraîchement pressées où des effluves poivrées et florales s’amènent en complément. Une amertume graduelle, progressive et franche en bouche, avec des pointes qui semblent âcres et/ou salées, du moins, on en a l’impression. Ça se boit comme du jus. (901-211113)

On tap at the brewpub, a very good IPA. Goes down easy with hops dancing in your mouth, another good brew from Benelux.

rejtable (1140) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2013
Wow, this is a great beer! Pours a light cloudy straw with a pillowy head that lasts and tons of lacing. Nose is big pine and grapefruit. Aromas are grapefruit, pine and maybe some apricot in the back. Hint of floral hops as well. Taste is light sweet with a good bitter finish. More velvety in the mouth than I would expect, but it works! Really nice beer.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 10, 2013
Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur dorée jaune et voilée. Nez de houblon citrique (très citronné et pamplemousse), herbeux (herbes fraîches, traces de menthe) aux notes florales, fruité (agrumes sucrées, léger d’abricots, notes de fruits tropicaux), léger de céréales avec des notes de pain. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement huileuse. Goût moyen-amer de houblon citrique (citron et pamplemousse), herbeux (herbes fraîches, traces de menthe) et aux notes florales (une amertume présente toute la gorgée), fruité (agrumes, léger d’abricots, notes de fruits tropicaux) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de céréales fraîches et sucrées avec des notes de pain puis en finale l’amertume se fait asséchante et légèrement plus herbeuse. Post-goût long-moyen, moyennement amer de houblon herbeux et citrique avec un goût fruité (zeste d’agrumes, notes de pelures d’abricots). (8 janvier 2013)

AGAquino (658) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2012
From notes at Caskdays 2011. Pours a cloudy golden-orange with a small short lasting foamy white head. Aroma and flavours are citrus and resin, balanced malts. Very nice cask ale.

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2012
Cask at Vankleek Hill’s/Beau’s Oktoberfest. Hazy orange with short lasting white head. Smell is citrus. Taste is orange, citrus, cereals. Nicely hopped: Quite a lot of citrus, mostly grapefruit. Bitterness is very resilient, lingering for quite a while. Medium bodied. Good IPA!
