Pleasantly strong citrus and floral hops in the nose. Hazy golden body is topped by a generous and long lasting, sticky, white head that coats the glass with lacing. Pleasant balance of sweet malts and strong bitterness. Lots of spicy and floral notes linger in the aftertaste. Wonderful smooth creamy textire with soft bubbled carbonation. Excellent! Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub in september 2012.

October 30, 2011 - Volo Cask Days 2011 - gravity cask. Murky and wan-looking cloudy orange-gold with a minimal white head (3-). Smells great - juicy malt, citrus and citrus zest bitterness, acidic - like sorachi or citra or maybe I was drunk - tropical tartness and I give it an 8+ ... taste follows, just a tad harsh - maybe the hops were a little green? - still good, just not well balanced, the fruity malt is shoved aside by the harsh bitterness. Light body, acidic, mildly carbonated, a fairly long pithy grapefruit finish.

mcberko (5369) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
On tap at Benelux, pours a cloudy golden yellow with a large white head. Aroma of pungent resinous hops, some tropical fruits and sufficient caramel malt backing. Flavour is quite wild and funky for an IPA, with horse blanket, herbally hops, some grapefruit peel, and enough mat simply to back. Very pleasant bitterness and funk that linger. An atypical wild and funky, but also unmistakeable, IPA. Excellent stuff.

Au Mondial de la bière de Montréal 2012. Wow, agrumes, pamplemousse, citron. En bouche, malt, herbes, douce. Excellente.

GarnotingPete (740) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2012
Mondial de la bière 2012 - Bière légèrement trouble, couleur de blé où flotte un fin col s’étirant timidement au verre. Des arômes superbes de caramel et de pamplemousse blanc. Intensément amère. De corps robuste, elle est crémeuse et se termine sur de beaux arômes et une franche amertume.

Marheb (1750) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2012
Banane, kiwi, ananas, raisin et un côté résine de pin, bouquet vraiment unique. L’amertume est généreuse, la présence en bouche est robuste, presque crémeuse. Belle surprise.

blankboy (5799) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2011
Cask at Cask Days 2011. Beer #2 of festival. Pours a hazy golden-orange with a small semi-lasting bubbly white head. Nice hoppy aroma and flavour are citrusy, somewhat resiny and dry and the beer has that catnip/cat urine thing going on, in a good way. Also a good amount of sweet malt to back it up. Medium bodied. Benelux always makes solid beers and this is no exception.

SlovakSniper (2815) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2011
Une petite tête blanche. Un liquide doré et embrouillé. Une superbe dentelle. Un nez explosif et frais de pamplemousses juteux et d’oranges sucrées avec des ananas et des mangues. Un agréable murmure malté. Des saveurs franches et fruitées : les houblons sont justement amérisants et extrêmement goûteux. Une bouche moyenne avec un pétillement modéré et une texture à la limite huileuse. Une finale ravissante sur des notes d’épinette et de fruits.
