Dark amber, opaque. Light head which held well. Syrupy smell which was reflected with some sweetness in the taste. Balanced reasonably with dry citrus hops. Overall lacked depth.

Can. Aroma seemed rather mild for an IPA, some citrus with a hint of bread. Poured a clear golden amber with plenty of head. Taste was medium bitter. Medium bodied. A decent IPA.

de couleur ambré avec une odeur forte d’houblon, citron, pin et floral. Goût de pin, citron, petit côté caramel. Bonne ouverture, comme la final qui fut bien amer!

sulawang (835) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2016
Visual: Pours clear copper brown with a large lasting very creamy head, thick sticky lacing, lots of fast clusters of streams. Nose: super fragrant tangerine hops, background malts. (lvl-8)-pungency Attack: creamy-thicker mouthfeel Mid-palate: (lvl-5)-sweetness, (MAIN) fruity orange tangerine, toffee malts, barley w/ alcohol detection Finish: smooth balanced bitter hops, tangerine exhale, lingering bitter hopped finish. Summary: A very smooth and balanced IPA from start to finish, all with a superb mouthfeel. What’s amazing is this is usually sold in 6pack cans.

hellonearth (92) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2015
Robe orangée plutôt translucide. Une bonne écume bordant généreusement le verre, se désintégrant peu à peu. Arômes boisés et sucrés d’agrumes (j’ai même une étrange impression - sacrilège! - de Kool-Aid...) et de conifères. Au goût, une bonne amertume sucrée, rappelant l’abricot séché, l’écorce d’orange, la lime ou même la clémentine. Un léger soupçon de caramel brulé. L’amertume s’étire un tantinet en bouche.

Hoppy and grassy aroma. Citrus orange with woody hints. Good strength and quite bitter on the palate. Overall a good one but couldn’t drink lots of pints.

KoNrRiI (959) - Århus, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2015
0.473 can. Clear, amber color and a thin, medium, off-white head. Strong aroma of pines, exotic fruits, resin, and a delicate, woody hint. Taste is moderately bitter and features the usual hoppy, grassy, and piney notes but without much citruses; instead the beer seems to offer a woody touch again. Medium body, somewhat creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is long, bitter but does not offend with that lingering tartness. Overall not a bad beer, certainly worth trying.

5/13/2010 11:53:15 AM Can from Whole Foods Hadley. Nice nose of hops, grapefruit and pine. Taste quite full-bodied of grapefruit and hops. Smooth, sweet. Not noticeable that it’s from a can. Another excellent craft brewer using cans. Enjoyable.

Tranquillity (1641) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2015
Dark red, big white head. The aroma is highly floral. The taste is malty at first, with caramel, with a slow transition into floral hoppyness at he end.

mathieuc (2630) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2015
Can from the SAQ Dépôt, because why the hell would we want to sell these as quick and as fresh as possible through some specialized beer stores? Canned on July 21st, 2015. Pours a clear copper with a small white head that leaves pretty good lacing. Nose is of melon, resin and fruits. Taste is lightly sweet and moderately bitter, offers light caramel and resinous hops. Body is medium, carbonation moderately high and mouthfeel a little sticky. Overall a really well made slightly oldschool IPA, wish I could sample this fresher!
