Ça semblait prometteur mais je trouve que la mousse faisait un étrange collet et qu’il manquait d’équilibre dans l’arrière-goût. Elle a du potentiel mais il y a place à raffinement...

Arôme timide, avec une touche de pêches peut-être. Une grosse mousse persistente, un peu trop carbonisée. En bouche, il manque légèrement de profondeur pour soutenir l’amertume qui tend à prendre le dessus sur les autres aspects. Il y a quand mêmes des saveurs intéressantes qui percent et qui rendent cette bière agréable à boire.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2013 Bière jaune foncée, dorée, remplie de particules, bonne effervescence, très large col mousseux, dense et résistant. Arômes timide de malt caramélisé, un peu de houblon floral, pêche, ananas, et de vagues effluves de levure, de poivre et d’herbes salées. Un beau nez qui apporte une complexité intéressante, mais ça manque franchement d’intensité. En bouche, ce n’est que très peu pétillant ou mousseux, mais l’onctuosité est très intéressante, c’est liquoreux. Au goût, malt mielleux en entrée de bouche, pêche et fruits tropicaux (cantaloup et ananas surtout), ensuite le houblon floral domine totalement, amertume assez prononcée, finale sèche. Bonne bière au-dessus de la moyenne, rien d’extraordinaire cependant.

Eructoblaster (2853) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2013
Cloudy golden body with a thin white frothy head. Enjoyable, fresh hoppy aroma with malty, melon, and honeyish hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries herbal, grainy, and citrusy notes. Ends with a robust, long bitter finish. Very good IPA.

dandeman (451) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2013
Tasted in November 2011. Aroma: Citrus notes coming up first, followed by grass and flower. Pretty complex nose. Appearance: Thick off white head with a mix of tiny and big bubbles. Long lasting with a nice lacing. Taste: Attack is very hoppy and bitterness is mainly of grass and flowers with a touch of orange. Finish is a bit malty with a long lasting citrus aftertaste. A real good IPA

500mL bottle from Broue Ha Ha. Pours a hazy orange and a large beige head with yeasty spotting. Aroma is awesome, piney and citrus hops boosted by yeasty esters and dryness, as well as respectable malt notes underneath. Flavour is even better, nice malty body upfront met with delicious flavour and bittering hops. The finish has a wave of orange esters and hops that reminds me of Orangina, or Sunkist candy. Feels somewhat light on the palate despite how much is going on. Background notes of powdered sugar and peaches, as well as some faint, lingering ’Quebecois yeast’ if you know what I mean. Damn, this is a great brew, maybe the mediocre rating is due to inconsistency?

Minderbinder (1584) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle 500ml. Pours hazy golden with medium white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of citrus, malt, sweetness, fruits (tropical). Taste is of citrus, mango, malt, alcohol. Palate: Medium body. Slightly sticky texture. Round. Overall: Bitterness is a bit naked in finish. Very good.

lesifflebiere (1026) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2013
Une IPA à l’amertume presque agressive, belle couleur ambrée semi-opaque. Sucres, caramels et boisé sous une généreuse couche de houblon.

blankboy (5798) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2012
Cask at Cask Days 2012. Twenty-first beer of the fest. Pours a hazy copper-gold with a small long-lasting bubbly off-white head. Pretty decent hoppy aroma: Resiny and a bit spicy along with caramel malt. Flavour’s nice as well, it’s fruity and hoppy along with caramel malt and a light bitter finish. It gets quite fruity the more you drink it. Average bodied. An enjoyable IPA.
