BiereLuc (898) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2013
Bière cuivrée avec des reflets orangés et un col de mousse moyen. Nez fraîchement citronné avec une touche subtile d’épices. En bouche, c’est clairement le houblon, résineux par moments, qui dicte l’allure du match. Quelque chose de caramélisé nous revient à travers ce brouhaha d’amertume. Cette dernière s’étale longuement en arrière-goût. Un petit goût de madérisé me titille; peut-être que la bouteille date un peu? Allez savoir — Brasseurs du Monde impriment une échelle d’embouteillage sur leurs étiquettes, mais ils ne mettent jamais les encoches pour nous donner l’information.

solidfunk (3997) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 15, 2013
Pours cloudy red with very good lacing and head. Pretty unbalanced. Tastes like something has gone wrong and it doesn’t seem like the age - not sure how much better it would be fresh. Not much hops, but then again it’s old. Mostly malt with a light dose of floral hops. Not sure what the whole 90 minute marketing is, but this certainly isn’t Dogfish head. Bottle at volos.

Belle couleur ambrée tirant sur l’orangé, légèrement brouillée, arômes floraux. En bouche, zestes d’agrumes, fleurs, fin légèrement sucrée et astringente. Amertume très peu prononcée pour une IPA. Facile à apprécier et légèrement différente des IPA classiques.

lesifflebiere (1269) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2013
Très peu de mousse et de bulles, du moins à l’oeil ; elle possède de puissantes odeurs houblonnées et de sucre, ainsi que d’abricots et d’ananas. En bouche, effervescence timide, houblons dominants et fruits tropicaux, mais en arrière-plan. Sèche, tranchante, elle demeure relativement accessible, quoique l’amertume est importante. Elle profiterait d’avoir une certaine rondeur, mais ses notes sucrées, fruitées, et son amertume intense sont suffisants pour l’appeler une réussite.

Cirrhosis (1208) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 2, 2013
Glowing brown, zero cap. Aroma is cold lake water, faint lemon-lime, caramel....... so very faint almost impossible to pick it up. Taste is faint and intensely bitter. Lemon, possible watermelon, wood, leather, grassy sweetness. I’m so bored drinking this STOP BORING ME!!!!

bunget (550) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2013
341ml bottle. A hazy copper body. medium beige head with good retention. Sweet aroma: caramel, grapefruit, spices, apricot, camp flowers, autumn leaves. Taste is mild upfront, lots of caramel, followed by a big wave of herbal hops bitterness, overwhelming bitterness, grapefruit zest and spices.

VertBaconStrips (2081) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle 6 of 6. Decent beer that grows on me and then gets shed like snake skin. Quite frootycaramel, Yoga Loft aroma - the stuff in the spray bottles for cleaning my mat, earth, faint pumpkin pie spice, floral stuff, soothing fruit sweetness of the mild sort. Taste iz ok and highly drinkable even though I find this too gassy. Light spice of the same vein, a mixed bag of citrus with nothing coming to the forefront except some unsweetened grapefruit, earthy caramel bits. Zippy bitter finish with dank malts. I dig or not. Maybe this is a tad old? dunno. It’s a decent IPA with plenty of bitterness to hold me at bay. Go Whalers.

JesseM (1151) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2013
341mL bottle from Broue Ha Ha. Pours a nice clear orange with minimal white head. The aroma has a lot of nice hops but nothing really stands out. Mild malt character, very faint. Flavour is sort of like well-done homebrew, I can almost taste malt and/or hop extract here. Not bad, but kind of a one-trick-pony and it lacks balance. The bitterness is rough and abrasive, the malt body thin and without much character. Drinkable but I had high hopes considering the cool story/marketing.

RogertheKid (90) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2013
American IPA 90 minutes, not a Dogfish Head 90 for sure, but in all, a good IPA. 100 ibu well done, but the sweet citrus is a bit overwhelming for an IPA. It has a nice caramel color, very cloudy, and a white-caramel head but gone in a flash, leaving a nice little lacing. That citrus-caramel taste lingers a bit to long over the usual bitterness of an IPA. Medium body, sticky, soft carbonation, and a bitter, but nice finish. In all, I enjoyed this beer, will have it again!

kontrol (3) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 27, 2013 does not count
2013-01-27 341ml Bottle
Aroma: Caramel, small notes of citrus and toasted malt
Appearance: Light copper, hazy. Small cream head which leaves fine lacing.
Flavor: Sweet caramel malt and floral hops. Bitterness is well balanced with the rest. Light aftertaste of hops. Slighly dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium/high carbonation.
Overall Impression: Well balanced beer. Not an outstanding IPA but a good one. Hops aroma could have been more clear. Might be a little bit too sweet too.
