Quevillon (2481) - 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!

Gorbalev (2923) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle, thanks Colin. Hazy golden dark yellow, really frothy white head. Light fruity slightly spicy aroma - tropical, some pine as well. Taste - more tropical fruit, aggressive yet balanced bitterness, and a nice mix of malt sweetness as well. Alcohol is present and assertive. Warming and refreshing. A solid IPA.

neongolden (396) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
(On cask at the DDC tap takeover @ barVolo, Aug 23 2014) Pours orange gold, hazy with a big dense white cask head and wall of lace. Aroma has lots of fresh crushed mint, citrus zest notes that seem like kumquat, sweet pale malt and light caramel. On the palate, lots of orange/kumquat/grapefruit zest and orange juice, light herbal minty notes, sweetish pale malt. On the finish, moderately bitter, kumquat and lime zest, herbs, faintly tinny. Mouthfeel fairly light and smooth with soft cask carb. My notes say "delish" and that about sums it up. Just a lovely cask IPA, super super drinkable and flavourful (though slightly outclassed by the cask Moralite w/Centennial). Dunno what this beer is like on tap/bottle but would be happy to not find out and stick with this version!

rbrazell (1639) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Draft at Edmunds Oast. Cloudy golden pour with a bubbly white head. Slightly sweet, fleshy tropical fruit aroma with some lingering pale maltiness. Flavor is hinting at the same profile with a moderate bitter finish. Not too shabby.

nimbleprop (4847) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 24, 2014
4oz pour at Churchkey DC pours a clear gold with some soapy, white head. Nose is floral, herbal, honey, lemon tea. Flavor is quite tannic, lemony, herbs, mild lavender. Finishes thin and tannic. So so, a bit to "Euro" for me.

Bottle at Prohibition Montreal served in a DDC snifter 6.5% An aroma of pine,  tropical fruits & yes kumquats. Full bodied with a soft mouthfeel and a bit of an ascerbic finish. The flavor  is very well balanced, pine needles, biscuit, kumquats, tropical fruits very tasty.

Atheist_Peace (946) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 13, 2014
Light amber pour with an average, nearly white head that leaves a lot of lace. Lots of bright citrus on the nose with some light spruce notes and a little wheaty note. That big citrus punch continues through onto the palate with an even bitterness across the finish. Refreshing stuff.

neuromatt (1140) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2014
11.5 oz bottle courtesy of Raphael, served in a stem glass. Pours hazy orange-golden with a small white head that mostly remains and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has soft citrusy notes paired with caramel, pine and kumquat. The flavour is moderately bitter with big citrus peel, orange, kumquat and a hint of pine. This is paired with a mild pale malty sweetness with subtle honey. The finish is long and moderately bitter with citrus peel. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and average carbonation. Overall, a very nice citrusy bitter IPA. 2014-08-09

probstblueribbon (2900) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
341 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep golden with lots of very fine particles, and a full, creamy, off-white head. Aroma: Juicy citrus with a rather assertive brothy/savoury note, rich biscuity malt, sweet caramel in the background, a faint spicy note, smells...thick. Palate: Medium+ body with fairly full carbonation. Flav.: Similar to the nose with plenty of pungent, juicy, rich citrus and rich biscuity maltiness, still has this certain savoury/brothy note going on, a bit peppery, some alcohol comes through; dry with fairly full bitterness and a long, richly malty and also citrusy finish.

I’d like to try this beer without the kumquat to know what they contribute.
