3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2011-10-30. Lightly hazy golden body, small frothy white head. 3+ Modest hoppy aroma has a light leafy character, and a modest citrus melange. 7+ Flaovur is similar, modest green leafy hops are pleasant, modest bitterness throughout, lemon and grapefruit seed in the finish. Average palate. Enjoyable, quite drinkable but I’d like it even more with a bit more of the citrus. Cask Days 2011, Toronto

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden topped by a generous white head. Looking good! Intense citrussy-fruity aromas, a touch piney. Medium body, aggressive bitterness, chewy, medium-high Co2, lingering bitter and citrus finish. A good IPA but not the most drinkable. It totally saturates the palate after half a pint. Not the most balanced but a good hop head juice.

Wow! Typical aroma from American IPA. Average bitterness and sugary. I would have take it dryer but it is the finest exemple of that style in Quebec.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Benelux 5th anniversary.
Aroma : Lots of malt with great floral and fruity citrusy hops. Strong cereals on nose. Hops are slightly green. Extensive lacing.
Taste : Rich malty cereals with resinous and citrusy hops. Lots of malt on the finish with great hops.
Overall : Didn’t feel as hoppy as I aprehended. Malt was quite present. Highly drinkable and very tasty. Maybe this batch was a bit young.
