Interesting idea. But wasn’t as flavorful and hoppy as had hoped for the IPA component. Cream ale seemed to dominate. But my palate may have been skewed, because I’d tried some stronger tasting beers first.

AlainG (1740) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2016
Un beau liquide pressé par l’azote qui est garnit d’une mousse aérienne et veloutée. Un nez tirant sur le caramel, le malt, le citron et son zeste. Une amertume acidulée et persistantes en bouche où on reste avec un arrière-goût d’agrumes imprécis. Le houblon fait un bon travail. On est pas impressionné, ni déçu. (1729-290116)

Draft @ ML Fontainas. Orangé, col épais crémeux blanc-cassé. Arôme offre un bouquet centré sur les houblons avec un côté vert mais un rétro malté assez prenant. L’un de ce caractère des houblons me laisse à penser à du thé vert, agrumes plus en rétro. Avec, possible, un effet de cette version nitro. Palais est centré sur un malté plus prononcée, impression d’épaisseur, surement dû au nitro. Amertume fine, herbacé se prolongeant sur une sécheresse houblonnée, refermé niveau houblon US - noble. Ceci étant, le malté perdure offrant un côté pâle et cara. Ok mais semble que les houblons soient un peu trop atténué.

harrisoni (16056) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2016
On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Cloudy dark amber light brown thick beige head it took two glasses to pour my serving. Its an odd ipa. Malty. May have lost some hops on the way over. Bitter finish. Some toffee in the mouth. No doubt better fresh but on this pouring its ok the finish is good.

ARH (1049) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2015
On nitro, poured into a nonic pint. Mellow and muted aromas of warm nuts and toffee waif through with a hint of citrus zest. The hazy brown amber beer sits beneath a thick, dense tan blanket of creamy head that retains most of it by the end, and leaves a coating of lace on the glass. The taste starts with a smooth medium sweet but is overtaken by a medium bitter before the glass is empty. It’s oily and smooth with a creamy carbonation and a medium body with smooth caramel, mild bread toast, and a light spiced, bitter marmalade. The waxy finish has a crisp touch to it followed by a spiced, pumpernickel bread character that leans towards mellow, bitter marmalade and nuts in the aftertaste.

RickTheRick (791) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2015
Lorsque le nuage de mousse disparaît, on entrevoit une bière cuivrée assez claire et une dentelle collante sur les parois du verre. Des houblons herbacés et légèrement terreux rejoignent des arômes de caramel brûlé pour former un bouquet plus typique d’une IPA à l’anglaise. En bouche, les clins d’oeil à la version anglaise d’une IPA se confirment : amertume soutenue mais pas agressive, caramel brûlé, céréales rôties, un peu fruitée. Tout ça dans une texture super soyeuse et crémeuse. Agréable.

Westchesterco (1612) - mclean, Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2015
On draft at the brewery it is cloudy amber color with a frothy ecru head. The aroma is indistinguishable and the taste is bitter with hints of citrus and burnt toast finishes with the same bitterness.

Draught in St Jerome. Elegant dark body with large creamy head. Silky mouthfeel dominated by roasted malt and rich piney hops, minty dry finish. Not really my style but very well done.and interesting slow drink.
