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 (3271) - Richelieu, 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 (666) - 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 (2233) - 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!

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2012
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.

HogTownHarry (6372) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 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 (11981) - 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.

GarnotingPete (777) - 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.
