Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2012
Bottle: Poured a clear light orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of floral hops is quite powerful and very enticing. Taste is mostly dominated by a solid floral hoppy base with light malt base with not much residual sugar. Body is about average with good carbonation. Solid IPA with great use of dry hopping technique.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - 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.

solidfunk (2999) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Malt forward IPA that’s actually fairly decent. A surprise for these guys. Pours translucent orange without much head or lacing. Strong barley smell with light hops - more along the English IPA tradition than otherwise. Average carbonation. On tap.

rodenbach99 (2968) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2012
Bouteille de 341ml. Bière dorée avec une couche épaisse de mousse blanche et crémeuse. Le nez est superbe avec des aiguilles de pin et des malts sucrés. La bouche est rafraichissante. Les saveurs de houblon frais sont bien suportés par des malts de grande qualité. Longtemps avons-nous dégusté une bière semi-commerciale de si grande qualité.

robinvboyer (2876) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2012
Well my hopes wern’t very high for this one and well i was right to not get excited. Whoa, there is alot of caramel in here for an ipa. I can see where they are going with this, ut the tiny tinge of piney hops and the huge dose of caramel malts just ain’t gonna cut it. As an entry level ipa you can buy in a 6er, yeah it will probably sell well. But as an ipa, i just dont see it. Apa at best, probably should be and english pale ale.

Eructoblaster (2851) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 30, 2012
On tap at Chez Victor (Québec, QC). Hazy amber body with a good white creamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with malty, citrusy, and herbal hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries grapefruit notes and ends with a long, robust bitter finish. Very good example of IPA.
