beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, - OCT 5, 2012
Pours a clear coppery color with a medium white head. The aroma is spot-on, it’s resinous, slightly fruity, reasonably dry and there’s a nice cereal presence. The flavor is nice, the samed resinous, slightly fruity hops are there, it’s not too sweet and there’s cereals, but the flavor is a bit short, I would have liked to feel them longer. The body is full with a creamy texture and medium to lively carbonation. This is a good IPA, kudos to Boréale for their convincing effort.

Spab (2288) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
473 ml can from Drummondville Metro. Pours a lightly hazed orange with average off-white head. Aroma is piney and citric with some caramel. Flavour has slightly spicy resinous hops, some subtler citrus and some caramel in the background. Average to full body. Carbonation on the lighter side. Sticky mouthfeel. Solid IPA.

mansquito (3281) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Some bar: Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is that of tropical fruits, especially a hefty dose of mellow citrus. Some minor aromas in the floral direction. Taste is fruity and a little sweet. It is pretty lightly hopped for an IPA and is not very bitter at all. I was not all that impressed with it, even though it was quite drinkable.

On Draft at M: Big in Montreal. Hazy tawny orange with medium white head and considerable lacing. Aromas of orange and caramel. Tastes of orange peel with a nice caramel backbone. Overall a nice light, fruity, well balanced IPA.

blankboy (5957) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2014
[Draught at Pub St-Alexandre, Quebec City] Pours a hazy copper-gold with an average size semi-lasting bubbly off-white head. Decent lacing. Nice fruity hoppy aroma, resiny and floral -- who knew? Floral C-hop flavour with a long-ish moderate bitter finish.Average to medium bodied. This was a pleasant surprise, I quite liked it.

[ Keg ][ 8oz ][ Patati Patata ][ $3.25][ Small Flute ][ 5/27/14 ]
>> Much smaller volume than expected, paired with poutine. Clear orange, nice cream mousse. Nose is slightly sticky, orange candies. Taste is dusty, salty, papery. Eh, should have gone for the blonde.

kaser (2530) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Ripe and bitter hoppiness. Super fruity and citrus. Draft at grand bayou. Pretty good. Had this a couple of times and it grew on me

Christian_A (3) - - MAY 13, 2014 does not count
Odeur intéressante mais peu forte,difficile d’identifier les agrumes mais un léger effluve de houblon,apparence cuivrée très réussit un peu trouble. En bouche par contre déçu de ne pas sentir l’agrume et pas très prononcé sur le houblon (peu être une mauvaise bouteille) ce qui donne un désaccord entre l’apparence et le goût, bien dommage parce-que l’idée y est. Une bière qui vaut son prix voir moins.

Grass and herbal, sweet citrus. Well balanced, high drinkability. Aftertaste is gone fast though.

sudomorph (508) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
On tap at Frite Alors! Pours a hazy golden orange with a white head. Aroma is slightly floral with notes of orange citrus. Taste is bitter with some citrus, pine, and a drawn out bitter aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Slightly resiny mouth feel. Overall not bad but the flavours aren’t doing it for me. Not enough tropical fruit for me I think. Worth trying though.
