piscator34 (1968) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, - APR 13, 2013
Growler sample via BreWedge. Pale amber in colour with a bit of haze and moderate carbonation. Aromas are of Centennial hops (candied orange peel, spice and flowers), along with caramel and wet tree bark. Flavors are a blend of pulpy orange, pale malt, dark caramel, lemon, and pine sap. Firm bitterness on the back end with some leafiness and a bit of chalk. A solid IPA, but a bit heavy on the malts for my taste.

[5558-20130629] Growler. Grainy citrus peel aroma. Hazy, brown orange body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Bitter grainy citrus orange peel flavour. Medium body is very bitter. Delicious and bitter. (7/4/9/4/16) 4.0

KansaiBeerLvrs (2068) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2014
On tap at the Ottawa Beerfest. Hop on your face on cask at the Ottawa beer fest. It is a cloudy orange-brown with a fantastic aroma of hops: resin, pine needles, fruits with the great full mouthfeel and silky body of cask. The taste is balanced hops, a complex array of hop flavors with enough malts to support them and let them shine.

Minderbinder (1799) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2013 Growler. Pours amber/copper with no head. Aroma is of malt, meat, sugar. Taste is of malt, pine, bitterness, alcohol. Palate: Medium body. Overall: Not really interesting. Hops are just not there. No finesse. Growler had some issues, will gladly re-rate in the future.

mathieuc (1304) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2013
Pours a hazy orange with no real head except if these big bubbles count. These "stubby" growlers don’t hold pressure too well, it seems. Aroma is grassy and soapy. Taste is soapy caramel and not too bitter. Some pine needles appear to save the day! Medium body with a low level of carbonation (probably due to the growler). It wasn’t exactly great but it wasn’t a complete disaster.

DP.

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2013
Growler from czar. Pours an opaque brown amber with a short lived white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, caramel...and soapy? Flavor is caramel, cereals, fruity (strawberry mostly). Finish is a good hoppy punch, herbal and, unfortunately...soapy, too. Light to medium body, sticky mouthfeel, weak carbonation. Not so good, because it was not all that flavorful, while at the same time being...soapy.

Metalchopz (2286) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2013
Thanks to PaleAleRider for this one, straight from the brewery. Pours a hazy amber colour with a beige-yellow head that has good retention and limited lacing. Great aromas of hopd, but not your typical hopbomb. Well mixed with the fruity and caramel malts. Very slight dry mouthfeel. Grainy malt taste with the hop presence, but again, not too crazy. Just right with some grassy notes that lingers. Gets cloudy near the last pour. This is a pretty good brew. Probably one of my favorites so far from this brewery.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Orange pour with a white year. Aroma is citrus hops and slight caramel grain notes. Flavor is citrus, grapefruit and sweet. Maybe a bit boozy but not overly so. Good beer.
