Tap at Wvrst. Golden-amber pour with a thick white head. The aroma is quite citrusy - orange/lemon and a bit of soft hoppy spice. Clean malt profile and an assertive bitterness. Clean and tasty.

In short: An intense fruity blond IPA for the bitterness lover.
How: Tap at brewpub, when it was very fresh, the first week of its initial release (late rating).
The look: Cloudy blond-orange body topped by a medium white head leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is juicy citrusy and tropical fruits. The aroma is very fruity but not to the point of feeling like it is made with a fruit (which it is), I know many "normal" IPAs that smeIl as fruity as this one. Taste is something else. A medium-sweet fruity attack followed by a monster bitterness of high intensity. I never had a Kumquat before (the fruit used in this IPA) but I didn’t think the beer smelled or tasted unusual, in the aroma and taste I noted plenty of orange flesh, mangos, peaches, grapefruits and such. All I know is this IPA was bitter as hell, not sure if the bitterness comes from the Kumquat, the hop bill or both. You’ve got to love bitterness to love this beer, I love bitter IPAs and I loved this over-the-top original creation. I had long conversations with the people at the bar while drinking six pints of this beer because if there is one thing I like to do when I go to the pub for a pint is to drink six of them (and I hate when people talk to me).

jredmond (5025) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 25, 2013
Draft at blind tiger with streets and the RB gang. Pours a bright orange body with light haze and thick white lacing. Aroma is super floral, bitter fruit, lemon and spice. Mouthfeel is medium, nice carbonation with notes of flowers, spice, bitter grapefruit and some additional bitter citrus fruit flavors. I don’t get any kumquat out of this, but still a good IPA.

czar (3776) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013
tap at mondial de la bière, mtl. hazy pale yellow with a decent white head and retention. subtle fruitiness - strong macro lager-ish notes, yellow plums, some citrus but quite shy for an ipa, herbs, pepper. average carbonation, light body, relatively short bittering citrus finish. not a success but a good drinkability. meh.
