À l’oeil : Elle se présente, jaune dorée et légèrement trouble, avec une fine couche de mousse. Au nez : Le nez met en valeur les houblons américains. Agrumes, fleurs et fruits se marient en arômes. Au goût : Le goût plus terreux du Cascade vient balancer le tout. On perd un peu le goût fruité, malheureusement. L’amertume est contrôlée mais bien présente ! Un bang for the buck, c’est certain !

Deep amber pour. The nose is quite fruity and orangey. Some nice soft clean malt (but not crystal). A bit of bitter orange and light pine. The nose has a bit more character than does the flavour but it’s pretty decent nonetheless. A soft bitterness and a touch of minerally character. Dry finish.

Le nez est subtile pour le style, mais annonce quand même ses couleur de houblon florale tout en douceur. En bouche, le corps est juste assez enrobant et délivre les arômes attendu de houblons bien équilibré avec du sucre résiduel miellé. Au finale, c’est encore une fois une amertume en équilibre avec les flaveurs, en douceur, mais suffisente pour représenter le style IPA et toute sa fraicheur. Belle surprise pour pas chère!

Gethinbeer (2154) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2014
Lovely fruity aroma, reminiscent of summer fruits. Clear copper pour with a white head. Malty brew, bitter finish. Thin texture. Not getting any of the delicious fruity hop from the original aroma. A little disapointing in the end.

rejtable (1297) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Solid beer! Tap at st Alexandre. Pours clear light orange tons of head and lacing. Nose is fruity and pine. Flavours of earthy bitterness, stone fruit, some pine and some breakfast tea. Taste is medium bitter and light /med sweet. Fullish body somewhat sticky with lively carbonation.

HippyHop (107) - CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
Pours a cloudy golden orange colour with a bit of sticky head. Nose is caramel, orange and bitter hops. Taste is about the same with caramel and grain leading to a slightly dry, bitter grapefruit finish. It’s a little more sweet than bitter, for an IPA, but still very drinkable. And like all Boreale and St-Ambroise beers, it’s very well-priced.

Spab (2389) - 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 (3386) - 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 (6051) - 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.
