WOW. My new Spring favourite (or is would be if Spring came to Alberta). Tap at Three Boars. Light amber with a thin white head. Hoppy nose has some fruity notes. Light body with a delicate touch and great fruity hop flavour. Delicious.

Reimer96 (1273) - 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.

Had this on tap at Dieu du Ciel. Fortunella has a nice, fruity, citrus aroma. The beer has a clear, light golden colour to it. It has a sweet head, while the rest of it has a citrus (Kumquat) flavour, but the flavouring is not sour like some other fruit beers tend to be. The hops gives it some bitterness, which helps balance out the fruit flavour. Great beer! I will definitely purchase some if it comes out in bottle form!

De couleur soleil comme sa jolie étiquette d’été, cette bière assez puissante (6.5%) possède une belle mousse blanche et nous offre un nez prononcé de houblons frais, de pamplemousse et de fruits tropicaux. En bouche, c’est fort rafraichissant et explosif : les notes d’ananas et de pamplemousse sont en évidence, et l’attaque des houblons plaira à tout amateur de IPA. Le petit côté sucré est bien balancé avec l’amertume, ce qui donne une bière des plus désaltérantes et goûteuses. Une IPA à mettre sur ma liste des "à racheter", sans l’ombre d’un doute. Cheers!

MunBro (401) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 6, 2014
Aroma is citrusy and hoppy. Very nice, unique flavor profile. A great IPA with the unique flavors of kumquats which are kind of funky in a good way.

glennmastrange (2287) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Tap. Moderate roasted grain for the malts, moderate pine and perfume for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with fresh fruits like orange and peach. Head is average size, frothy, white with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color light hazy amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and slightly bitter. Palate is medium, slick with a carbonation between soft and lively. Kumquats are a nice addition to this tasty IPA. I guess any kind of citrus would make sense.

ippopotamo36 (254) - Rome, ITALY - OCT 4, 2014
At Eurhop festival in Rome-Italy. Pours bright golden, just a bit hazy with a medium off white head which leaves lacing. Nose of fresh orange juice, tropical fruit and hint of Amber malts (caramel). Mouth: GREAT! Important body with distinctive character. Peculiar IPA. Juicy citrus feel, pineapple, tropical fruits. Perfect bitterness. A great IPA, different and good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
