Bottle 341 ml. Bought at Grange du marché (Montréal). Pours beautiful golden with medium white head (nearly fully diminishing) and some lacing. Aroma is mostly about citrus (kumquat?), plus hops, herbal notes and malt. Taste is the same. Very fruity at first, but strong bitterness in the end. Refreshing and drinkable. A very good summer IPA.

Lukaduke (2070) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Pours a orange golden color with a finger of white gaseous foam. Lots of earthy fruit on the nose with light toasted malts and some complex citrusy notes. The palate follows with lots of strange fruit, citrus rind and clean malts playing the leading roll. Linger tannic tea like flavors linger with hints of tangerine and floral grass.

Fred82 (2114) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
341ml bottle from Monde des Bières.
Appearance : Slightly hazy pale yellow with small head. Minimal lacing. A bit unusual for such a hoppy beer.
Aroma : Herbal and floral hops. Slightly wet hops. Light notes of agave or a similar vegetal profile.
Taste : Fruity and floral with light passion fruits. Finish fairly resinous and piny with light oily notes. Fruity with floral notes. Some malt throughout. Fairly spicy finish.
Palate : Fairly fizzy carbonation with medium body. Finish slightly dry.
Overall : Interesting IPA. Nice hop aroma. Fairly different from the usual hops. Nicely fruity and citrusy. Good but nothing outstanding.

veronneaupy (111) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
IPA très rafraîchissante avec une amertume modérée et un franc goût de kumquats. Parfaite pour l'été. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reimer96 (1173) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 26, 2014
Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a big frothy lacey white head. Aroma of pine, hop resin, citrus and light tropical fruits with some pale malt sweetness for balance. Taste is pine, resin, grapefruit citrus with some balanced fruity hops flavors like guava and passionfruit and a good malt balance with a nice smooth slick bitterness on the finish. Finish is medium dry and delicately balanced. Easily drinkable by the boat load and that’s scary for its abv.

RickTheRick (336) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 26, 2014
Dorée penchant sur l’orangé, la Disco Soleil mousse abondamment, gracieuseté des bulles très actives qu’on peut voir à travers la robe tout de même voilée. Les houblons et les kumquats forment un bouquet hyper fruité et alléchant. L’aspect fruité est toujours prononcé en bouche et l’amertume est assez franche. Une bonne présence des céréales égalise le tout et les kumquats relâchent une certaine acidité très douce en finale. Rafraîchissante à souhait.

lesifflebiere (1212) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2014
Jaune doré, un peu trouble, mince avec une mousse rare ; nez en agrumes, citron et orange surtout. La bouche est sèche, presque astringente, avec une finale en dualité kumquats-houblons, un long et âcre combat qui dure et dure. Les malts blonds, assez discrets, sont tout de même détectés à la longue. Agréable, fougueuse mais dépourvue de subtilité, elle constitue la boisson estivale agressive par excellence.
