3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A hazy amber beer with a nice off-white head. The aroma is hoppy - though not extremely hoppy, but also with notes of caramel and some citrus - probably from the hops. The flavor is sweet and quite hoppy, with some alfa acids being present, but also pretty strong notes of caramel, that makes the mouthfeel slightly sticky.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright amber colour. Toasty, woody aroma with a hint of toasty, toffeeish malts. A little spritziness takes away from the body and the expressiveness of the malt but otherwise it’s an evenly balanced, chewy, bitter, woody example.

Godlen ale with a good white head. Aroma of hops and clover field, resinous notes. Good malt base in mouth, with hops and grapefruits . Rich bodied. The other Brouemont classic.

at Festival Bières et Saveurs 2009 with the brewer Patrick and Fred from Hopfenstark. Heard this was thought by many to be Quebec’s best IPA and I was not disapointed. 78 IBU makes it like a 1.5 IPA. Lacey, medium grapefruit colour. Cascade among four US hops used. Served too cold. Still malt in thre, its not too bitter.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2005 Oranges and peaches envelop muscular hops (Centennial?)...Earthy yeast mingles with round maltiness and squinting caramel warmly hugs the indigenous, strong hop bitterness of a typical West Coast IPA...The best of the regulars at this fun brewpub...

Superb off-white head climbs the sides of the glass. Hazy orange. Piney and grapefruity nose doesn’t hide the origin of its inspirations. Light backing maltiness. Wet aspects come to enhance the drinkability in mouth. Earthy, piney crisp hops, a bit sweaty. Light-medium bodied, refreshing citrus character. Typical excellent brewpub IPA.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2011
In short: A bland, oily and not-aromatic IPA. Drinkable, but way below average for the style
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear golden-orange topped by a persistent small off-white head leaving good lacing on the glass
In long: Timid nose of fruity hops and cereals, this is not an aromatic IPA. Taste has a basic semi-caramelized malt backbone, baguette, timid presence of citrusy and grassy hops. A big resinous. Sticky bitterness of medium intensity. Strong unpleasant oily sensation from start to finish. Not much better at the brewpub than the first time I had it at the Mascouche Oktoberfest, a beer event which magnitude is matched only by the camping Raymond mini-putt tournament

Sampled at Mondial 2006. Cloudy dark gold body with a white head. The aroma is typical grapefruit and caramel. There is also some almonds under that. The taste is good with grapefruit at the start with a toasted walnut finish. Very smooth.

orange-resin-pine hop nose. Hazy, copper-orange with strong, white head that recedes to partial cover and laces well. Hops figure strongly in the flavour as well with decent balancing caramel maltiness. Medium body and creamy, smooth mouthfeel with decent carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub with MartinT, muzzlehatch and Taktik_MTL.
