Quevillon (2802) - Boisbriand, Quebec, - MAY 31, 2013
Drank on tap (8 oz) at ther Montreal brewpub on May 29, 2013. Honey amber, medium head. Kumquats and sweet aroma of hops, very mild. Taste of dried kumquats, slightly hoppy, very dry bitterness. Too intense and I’m not a fan of disco!

Drank on tap (12 oz) at the brewpub on February 10, 2013. Honey blonde little head. Hoppy aroma kumquats (note: I do not know this fruit so I assume), a little juicy. Dry citrus taste with hints of green hops, fresh bitter herbs. I want to taste some kumquats!

Niall73 (2414) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy orange gold with a white head. Looks good. Aroma is lightly bready with lemon, grass and a light heroines. Medium body, medium carbonation. Juicy, with lots of tangerine, clementine, zesty, pithy bitterness, light honey sweetness too. Tasty.

yourilevesque (1078) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2016
En fût à la brasserie. Des arômes bien entendu très fruités de fruits oranges et jaunes à pelure épaisse. Une base céréalière non négligeable, Signature de la Maison, s’agence bien aux fruits et leur apporte profondeur et tonus. Je suspecte cependant un liquide au corps important, limite lourd. Je ne me trompe qu’à moitié sur ce point. En bouche le liquide est soyeux, voire satiné. Peu effervescent et au mouthfeel ample, les saveurs occupent toute la place. Le fruit est amer et même capiteux, me laissant la bouche pâteuse et engourdie. Longue durée de l’arrière-goût, cette bière aurait pu être délicieuse si elle avait été plus légère et effervescente.

ctipping (958) - Florida, USA - APR 6, 2016
On tap at the Farmhouse. Hazy orange body. Smell is fruity, citrusy, and tropical. Some sugary aromas too. Taste has a lot of kumquat. Sweet and citrusy. Pale malt sweetness. Then some bitterness in the finish. Creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Really nice.

Lightly hazy dark orange colored body, thin off-white head, spotty lacing. Muted citrus, biscuit, cookie, and some florals. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, mild bitterness, muddled finish.

L’association de l’amertume du houblon et de celle du kumkuat est une belle réussite, agréable surprise!

slowrunner77 (9010) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 17, 2016
I very nice unique IPA. Hearty earthy citrus forward IPA. Fairly bitter. Fruit (similar to orange peel) is seemlessly integrated with a bitter finish.

thornecb (5283) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Pours hazy gold into an English pint. Bright white soapy head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Fig, date and kumquat aromas. Medium bodied with kumquat and caramel upfront turning dry in the lasting bitter earth finish.

krumbum (860) - truckee, California, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Big sour citrus hop aromas. Slightly hazy copper with a light lasting head. A smooth sharp hop grows to a citrus bitter tartness. Refreshing and so good.

Bottle at home. Golden with a white head, average lacing, doesn’t last long. Tangerine, mango, orange, melon, peach on the nose. Even though it’s quite bitter the initial sweetness is very noticeable and different from standard IPAs. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. It’s not bad but I didn’t enjoy it too much.
