Bottle (355 ml) at home. Thanks to mathieuc for this bottle! Hazy orangey-gold with a medium rather easy to revive off-white head and pretty good lacing. Aroma is of oranges, caramel, mild spiciness, grassy notes and mild melon. Taste is grassier with a sticky herbal - moderate - bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Sticky herbal and a bit resinous finish. Oily. Not bad, but no way this is is even close to top-50 APA. Too sticky.

You can imagine my surprise when I saw that the SAQ started carrying that... I do hope it will be fresh since it is just from the next province! Pours a lightly hazy golden with a medium-high white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of oranges, melon, pine and resin. Nice hop mix! Taste is moderately bitter and not too sweet. Pine needles, light sweet cereals. Body is medium, carbonation moderately high and expressive. Bitterness lingers for quite a while but is never bothersome. Really nice, I’m impressed! Keep it up, SAQ!

punkska101 (1452) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2015
Bottle from local Saq A: citrusy, light mango, light caramel app: clear copper with thick lasting white head and excellent lacing t/p: med body with moderate long bitter finish and moderate carbonation. O: I couldn’t find any date on the bottle I’m suspicious that even tough it’s brand new on saq’s shelves, that the beer isn’t super fresh. More fruitiness in aroma wise would benefit the beer. An updated rating of a draft version could be welcome.

KoNrRiI (959) - Århus, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2015
0.341 bottle. Hazy, yellow color and a small, white head. Aroma of fruits, mango, flowers, hops - quite nice. Taste is bitter, hoppy, somewhat fruity, citric to an extent. Medium body, slick texture, and average carbonation. Finish is long and bitter, grapefruit-like. Overall not a bad beer, quite usual though.
