Clear amber-gold pour with two fingers of off-white foam that quickly recedes into a thin ring leaving only minimal lacing. Nose of spicy malted rye, citrus hops, some sweet dried fruit and a decent helping of herbal, grassy notes. Taste follows; very well balanced. I love the complexity that the rye brings to an IPA so this is probably my favourite style of beer. Along side some resinous and citrus hops comes notes of seasonal spices: ginger and allspice, as well as dried cherries and some caramel sweetness. Again, balance is excellent! On the nose bitterness. Medium carbonation with a somewhat thicker mouthfeel and lingering pithy bitter finish. One of my top 5 right now for sure! Well done!

Superbe bière très équilibrée qui a des touches presques sucrées. Une découverte de Charlevoix qui produit toujours d’excellentes bières. Un symbole de qualité.

bedainedebiere (501) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2011
Tap. Copper IPA, slightly hazy, with a nice head. Inviting aroma of herbal and grassy hops with sweet notes. Taste is very dry because of a most probable very clever dry-hopping with some high-class English hops (I could be wrong but it’s really what it reminds me). Some cerealish and sweet distant notes; I can’t say I really dintinguish the rye effect. But I really appreciate the deepness and multi-layers of that great hoppiness. Very, very good beer! If I seem generous, know the outside temperature was 29 celcius today...

bunget (506) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2012
500ml bottle. A hazy amber body, a huge, gorgeous beige head with excellent retention. A classic IPA aroma: citrus, caramel, pine, with the addition of yeast and oak barrel. Taste of grapefruit, pine, caramel, yeast, good amount of herbal hops. You wouldn’t expect it to be so light and easy to drink at 6%. Very nice.

Great hop/bitter/sweet balance! Lots of carbonation. Taste of hop is really present but not overwhelming. I would pick one more next time I’ll go to store.

GarnotingPete (774) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2011
Bière cuivrée, limpide et coiffée d’un col crème. Des arômes racés de résine, de caramel. Belle amertûme multidimentionnelle. Texture collante, belle fin amère et arômatique.

Gethinbeer (2119) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 28, 2012
Copper colour with a large frothy head and lace. Crisp malt aroma. Lovely fresh malt flavour. Very clean texture. Spicy bitter finish. Very enjoyable ale.

blackmetal (112) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 10, 2012
Hoppy initially and gets nice and bitter over time. Yet, there remains a hint of sweetness. Very well done!

lesifflebiere (1207) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2013
Belle couleur rouge feu, mousse blanche-crème qui forme bientôt un collier sur le pourtour du verre. Au nez, houblon, sucre et fraises ; en bouche, c’est encore le combo fruité-sucré qui domine (fraises, pommes, sucre cuit, boisé), mais le houblon est aussi dans le décor, quoique l’amertume est relativement faible. Une excellente IPA au seigle, merveilleusement ronde et savoureuse, parfaitement balancée et agréablement complexe.
