Too bitter for my taste at first but able to get past the hops after 3-4 sips. Nice nose (floral) & finish (grapefruit). (tasted 04/27/16)

Tricker (384) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2016
Bière orangée de 6.5 % d’alcool. Elle possède un odorat sucré, remplie d’agrumes, ce qui amène une petite amertume. Elle possède un goût vraiment amer, à la limite rafraîchissant. Cette amertume relève d’un goût de pamplemousse. Il y a un goût fade en finale, restant en bouche. On aurait tendance à croire qu’il provient d’une épice. À la longue, le goût devient même désagréable. Est-ce le fait qu’elle est une bière forte ? Je ne crois pas, mais il y a quelque chose qui ne me revient pas.

VincentDamon (464) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2016
IPA de couleur ambrée avec une mousse titanesque. Nez un peu minéral où les houblons ont peine à dévoiler leurs notes qui me semblent ici plutôt herbeuses. En bouche, un bel équilibre de malt et de houblons, on a affaire à une bière bien gouteuse dont les notes de caramel, de sel et d’Agrumes sont en parfaite harmonie. Pas mauvaise! Cheeeeers!

On tap at original joes. Nice strong citrus aromas with this one, taste is grassy hops and pine, really coats your mouth and has a nice lingering bitterness. Excellent IPA

ajnepple (4897) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2016
12 oz single can from Wilbur’s Total Beverage, 4.5 months old. Clear golden appearance with a lacy white head. The aroma of mostly resinous, piney hops. Similar flavor, adding a medium hop bitterness for the style. Medium body with a lingering hoppy finish. A little musty, but better than most IPAs at this age.

Exotique et bien équilibrée. Le sucre est présent, suffisamment pour balancer l’amertume. IPA dans mes cordes.

Honey in color. 16 oz Can. Light carbonation. A little malty, bitter. Not as high on this as some people.

Bierdimpfe (208) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2016
Clear hazy amber color, almost copper with a pink hue, and floating suspending detritus. Creamy foamy white 2 finger head lasting around 5 minutes. Strong legs with some vivid dual speed carbonation activity due to the particles. Strong aromas and flavors of citrus, pine, fruits, floral and herbal spices. Perfectly intensified having some pleasant orange fruity sweetness and a rich earthy spicy bitter feel. Slick creamy medium body with some prickly carbonation. Well intensified finish ending with a spicy, slightly dry, bitter clove like feel and pine aftertaste. Overall : Awesome tasty flavors and balanced intensity. Great freshness while still a little dry, and the spices are just right. Excellent and accessible IPA!

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.
