rosenbergh (6700) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2011
Draught at the DDC Brewpub, Montréal, QC.
Amber cloudy colour with small creamy off-white head. English style floral fruity hops in bitter aroma. Bitter fruity flavour with darker notes and heavy bitterness. Dry woody malty. Bitterness stays. Very creamy.

Cask at the DDC Brewpub, Montréal, QC.
Amber colour with no head. Creamy fruity peachy aroma. Woody nutty malty flavour with dry bitter hops and fruitiness. Dry. Liked the draft version just a little more.

Decent, not great. Nice, hoppy aroma but fairly understated when actually consumed. Good mouthfeel from the nitro tap; unusual for the style. It’s an interesting take on an IPA but not my favourite.

pushkinwow (1997) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2011
Tap sample at DDC. Amber with a nice cream tan head. Very smooth hops, some herbs and fruit. Mild bitterness, bit of sweetness, then grows progressively more bitter....mmmmmm....nice and dry finish. Great hoppy beer without overdoing it.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2011
Orange citrus, floral and caramel notes to the aroma. Hazy/opaque tan-brown body is topped by a decent and long lasting, large bubbled, off white head that leaves scant lace. Flavour follows aroma with some tea-lime tannins and a fairly pronounced bitterness. Medium body with smooth texture and fair carbonation. Sampled on cask at the brewpub.

vtafro (3256) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2011
Draft. orange amber pour with some light head. Herbal, fruit and light floral aroma. Body leaves something to wish for. Flavor is probably been through some oxidation, light herbal spice and fruit tones, are modest and seem compromised.

davidm (1928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Tap at the brewery. Great beer, very different. Aromas of caramel, and flowers. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and a long finish. Palate is creamy, and medium bodied. Amber, with a pillow head.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Draft. Pours an amber body with a hazy off white head. Sweet and fruity with a dry fruit toned finish. A big body creamy, not so much thick as it is full. Hints of apricots. Overall the hop tones are far from bright, rather dust y and taking on more of a floral note. I could understand feeling a bit of oxidation here as well.

DeanF (1709) - Nunavut, CANADA - DEC 12, 2010
Has a hoppy aroma, but nothing else. Decent head and a foggy orange body. Flavour is lots of hops - a simple flavour. It’s a slightly below average brew for this style, but overall a decent IPA.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2010
Tap at BT. Pours a light hazed bright amber and a medium thick sticky creamy white head. Aroma is earth, leather, toast, older citrusy hops, light grass and some slight vege notes. Flavor is creamy- almost a wheaty doughy hint, then light corn, bread, toasted malts, light paper and mineral with some decent hops- seems a bit old slight stale oxidation setting in just a bit which gives a very slight astringency in the end. Ok.

JulienHuxley (3019) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Thick creamy head slowly rises to the top of this amber colored ale, beautiful. Aroma is everything you expect from a darker IPA, a good selection of piney hops and caramel malts. Taste is much the same, well balanced sweetness and bitterness overall. Palate is delightfully creamy, an excellent pint.
