bedainedebiere (500) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 16, 2009
On tap at brewpub. Not exactly what you expect from an IPA, this one being quite golden and with a very creamy foam head. Texture is also quite creamy, the aroma and the taste are of citrus hops, slightly peppery with resinous notes. Dry aftertaste, quite lasting. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 8, 2009
On a nitro tap at Dieu du Ciel. Pours an orange almost hazy amber with a thick white head that leaves ample lacing on the glass. Hop aromas start off subdued but slowly develop into a big sticky pile of citrus full of pineapple. Smooth, medium bodied and creamy due to the nitro tap. More pineapple hop notes. Soft grapefruit bitter finish. Quite unique due to the nitro tap on here, with the creamy body providing an excellent counterpoint to all of the hops. One of the favorites of the day.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - APR 5, 2009
On tap, DDC. Pours orange-amber with a nice white head. Aroma is softly floral. Palate is strikingly smooth and creamy, and interesting contrast with the hoppiness of the body. Basically, this beer is a nice smooth IPA with richness in the mouthfeel. An interesting offering.

grandgenie (259) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2009
Dégusté à la brasserie en format de dégustation. Apparence orangé ambré moyennement trouble avec un collet de mousse moyenne. Très houblonné, poivré et résineux. Bonne amertume, menthe poivré et résine. Une bière soyeuse, sec, un peu crémeuse avec une légère paralysie de la langue dû au houblon.

ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2009
On tap. Pours copper with a thin off white head. Aroma is floral, light caramel, grapefruit. Flavor is the same. Palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, finished bitter. Good stuff.

MJGG (924) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2009
Verre de 12 oz, à la brasserie de Montréal. Arômes de houblon citronné et floral, légère touche de céréales. Robe orangée, très belle mousse crémeuse qui tient longtemps. L’azote donne à la bière la texture crémeuse classique des cream ales, avec une effervescence faible. On note un malt légèrement sucré qui mène à une amertume moyenne de houblon (agrumes et floral).

On tap at Dieu du Ciel. Out of the 18 beers I tried there, this is the only one I ordered twice. White and creamy head, great citrus smell and taste. There are some other fruit there but I’m not sure what fruit they are. This is my first beer review so I hope I’m doing this right :)

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2008
En fût chez Dieu du ciel. La bière est de couleur cuivrée avec un beau col de mousse imposant qui ne nous quittes pas. Au nez on respire des arômes de houblon fruité (abricot, citorn, pêche). En bouche le corps est rond avec une effervescence faible. On goûte des saveurs de houblon fruité et amère avec un léger goût de caramel.

mabel (5371) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2008
[1411-20080530] Tap. Creamy orange citrus aroma is mild. Slightly hazy, medium orange brown with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Medium bitter orange hops flavour has a hint of grass. Smooth medium body body is a bit flat. Interesting to try.
