Quevillon (2674) - 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!

rosenbergh (8690) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2015
341 ml bottle. 6.5%. Bottled on 03/15. From saveur-biere.com.
Clear orange golden color with a mid-size foamy white head. Tropical fruits, fruity hops, moderate bitterness and dryness in the aroma. Tempting. The flavor is fruity hops, moderate bitterness and malt. A bit unfresh. I’d love to taste this fresh.

Servie d’une bouteille à une tulipe. À l’oeil, un beau orange avec un col légèrement persistant. Au nez, beaucoup de fruits tropicaux et d’agrumes. En bouche, on sent d’abord l’amertume du houblon, une amertume qui est bien persistante. Se mélangent ensuite les agrumes et le satinage du houblon. La carbonatation est légère. C’est quelque chose de très frais, excellent pour l’été!

Very much hazy, yellow/orange, beer with a white, fluffy, three finger high head that leaves lacing on the glass.

Nose: Orange, apricot, malt, honey, pine and grass.
Taste: Wow! Orange juice, apple, mango, pineapple, caramel malt, grapefruit and white bread.
Body: Medium body. Light carbonated. Great bitterness.

I really like this IPA! To bad I only bought on bottle :(

plaugher (272) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 13, 2015
341ml bottle into a chalice. Pours a copper-orange with a pillowy white head leaving quite a bit of lacing. Nose is of orange, sweet citrus, light floral; semi-sweet tropical flavour with a subtle bitterness, slightly resinous finish. A curious, tasty offering.

Tognetta (394) - Campinas, BRAZIL - AUG 12, 2015
Alaranjada, com alguns poucos sedimentos suspensos, espuma branca de boa formação e média persistência. Aroma discreto, logo de cara esperava mais de uma IPA, lembra laranja, manga, melão, apesar de não ser tão cítrica (só descobri o que era "kumquats" depois da avaliação). Amargor médio no paladar, quase nada de floral, leve dulçor. Corpo médio, baixa carbonatação, levemente alcoólica. Desde o primeiro gole até o aftertaste, ela apresenta uma amargor diferenciado, parecido com casca de laranja, nesse caso faz jus ao rótulo. Achei que ficou bem inserido, mas acabou "matando" muito das características do lúpulo floral do estilo, mas uma vantagem é que o malte fica mais aparente. Pretendo experimentar novamente, já que essa tem quase 8 meses de engarrafada.
