lefossoyeur (444) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2011
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.

Lubiere (9747) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2011
A golden amber IPA with a thin lacing and creamy off white head. In aroma, pungeant floral hops, honey, pineapple, tropical fruits. In mouth, a good biscuitty malt, over funky hops, menthol, rather nice and smooth, lightly oily, Nelson Sauvin touches. Good. On tap at brewpub, 5th Anniversary, April 30th, 2011.

Fred82 (2114) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2011
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.

On tap at Bénélux. The color is a hazy honey with a thick beige head and lace. The aroma is of hops and citrus fruits. The taste also os hops and citrus fruits mostly of pnik grapefruit.It has that super great bitterness of a great I.P.A.. The finish is so good biterness and just enough dryness.This was sooooo good.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2011 Really strong citrus and pine aroma, boom! Cloudy yellow with nice thick head that sticks to the glass. Taste is very bitter load of pine and citrus fruit. Light bodied, oily hops and good carbonation. Long bitter finish. This is the best ipa brewed in Quebec. I had to re-rate this, they fine tuned this beer and it is a masterpiece!
