jredmond (5025) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Draft at DdC with Streets, Ricky, Andrew, PJ and Brendan. Pours a deep red body with thick, frothy white head. Aroma is light hop upfront with some malt character in the back. Mouthfeel is super bitter with notes of pine, resin, generic hop, soapy floral character and spice.

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2013
On tap at brewpub. A veiled, orange-copper ale with a white head. Light malt smell, fruity, zesty orange flavor, with lime, grapefruit and lemon bitterness in the finish. Soft mouthfeel. Good!

Marheb (1743) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2013
(Version cask): belle robe cuivrée, belle mousse pour une cask. Arome d’abricots, pommes, sapin sous une brise florale vraiment distincte. En bouche la pomme et la verdure prennent la pole mais le reste suis pas très loin. Belle surprise de simplicité dans la complexité.

On draft at the brewery. Orangish color with a thick white head. Light hops. Slightly bitter. Solid and very drinkable.

radiomgb (2143) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
Hazy golden orange in colour with a long lasting mid-sized head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of citrus hops, caramel, some pine and grains. The flavour is lightly hoppy, some caramel sweetness, citrus and light pine. Lightly hoppy mouthfeel, medium/light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, moderately hoppy, some bitterness.

Not the usual DDC standards but I would drink this all day if I could.

341ml bottle from Marché Omni in Gatineau, Quebec.
Opened on May 23, 2011.
Bottled in November 2010.

Very sweet matly aroma wine some light piney soapy hops. Thick lacing, loads of retention. Almost no bitterness, caramel malts and soapy hops end it off. Meh.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
February 15, 2011. Shared by blankboy with garthicus and me. 341ml bottle. Slightly hazy amber with a decent off-white creamy head. Aroma is floral, with citrus zest, alcohol and a bit of light background generic fruitiness. Taste follows, seems to have a bit of the Belgian golden character (spicy, sweet, yeasty), definitely dry and floral, some alcohol, not too sweet - seemed more Belgian than APA -ish to me. Thick body, decent carbonation, a wee bit astringent, a medium-bitter finish, quite dry, no residual sweetness.

Une odeur mielleuse, Une robe brune pâle brumeuse assez attirante; seule faibless; la mousse part vite. L’amertume domine mais ce n’est pas très fort, pas une IPA. Le sucre mielleux arrive en arrière goût. Ça fait un contraste mais pas trop violent. Il y aussi un petit peu d’agrume dans le mix. Probablement houblon cascade. Très bon au final. Un bel équilibre et le genre de bière que tu peux boire toute la soirée dans un party.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, crisp hoppy and light malty presence. Bitter, crisp hoppy and light citrusy. Medium dry and bitter into a mild malty finish.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Toasted, nutty malt accents construct a compelling flavor profile where fruity, citrusy hops yield wooden bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam tops the pale amber.
-The toasted, caramelized malt flavors are beautifully sustained into the finish.
-The mouthfeel is a tad rounder than your average Pale Ale, but then again this is DDC...
-Soft effervescence makes this quite drinkable.
-I love a Pale Ale which is as memorable on the grain bill side of things as it is in the hop signature.
