tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - 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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1843) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 12, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Sabotage is a dark cloudy reddish copper pour. That has a bit of an opaque honey tinge. The taste is lightly piney floral hops - very good.

ametras (361) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2014
On tap at Marché des brasseurs. Hazy golden with a foamy white head. Flavors are peach, apricot, tangerine and tropical fruits with grassy and floral notes. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture.

Lukaduke (2112) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Pours a deep golden color with some eggshell foam. Lemon jello, grapefruit, honey soaked malts and earthy green tea. Mouthfeel is a bit full and round and doesn’t jive with the flavors quite as cleanly as I prefer in my hoppy beers. Grainy.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
Dégustée (en fût) le 31 mai 2013 au Mondial de la Bière 2013 à Montréal (D12C3K522i). Bière blonde dorée limpide. Col mince et persistant. Assez effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur de zeste d’orange, de fleurs. Très douce, assez sucrée, un peu amère. Saveur un peu épicée puis un peu âcre ensuite.

Lovely citrus nose, peach. Pink grapefruit flavor, pineapple, decent crispiness, hoppy finish. Very smooth fruity IPA.

Whatup14 (703) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
En fût au brouepub sur Sherbrooke. Couleur orangée trouble, mousse blanche évanescente. Arôme d’ananas, pomélo, malt subtil. Goût d’ananas mur, pomélo, amertume moyenne-élevée. Carbonatation faible, corps moyen.

glennmastrange (2240) - 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 (1170) - 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 (1262) - 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.
