UPDATED: DEC 3, 2012 05-10-2012: On tap at L’Amère à Boire. Unclear golden/amber with a small persistent creamy white head and good lacing. Aroma of mango, guava and tropical fruits at first and then floral hops. Taste of tropical fruits and malt with a floral/resinous hoppy finish. Medium carbonation. Mouthfeel is dry. Very good refreshing IPA. [8-4-8-3-15=3.8] Bottle (341 ml). Hazy peach color with a medium creamy off-white and and heavy lacing. Aroma of herbal tea, guava, tropical fruits and light malt notes. Soft and complex. Taste is also of herbal tea (more present than in aroma), guava, malt, slight caramel and a slight hoppy finish (less than what I remember from the draft version). Body is a bit thin (not watery), but I was expecting it because of the herbal tea. Very good balance and interesting creativity. There’s no doubt that Dunham are now among the best in Quebec for bottled APA, IPA, Black IPA and the list goes on... i’m extremely impressed by their products lately.

Une jolie bière m’est servie dans un verre droit. Le liquide est trouble et la tête mince. De magnifiques arômes florales de tisane et de houblons caressent délicatement mes narines envoûtées. Un champ de camomille sous le soleil du mois de mai. En bouche le thé n’arrive que tardivement. Ce sont d’abord les houblons qui attaquent d’une touche très florale et herbacée. Sans que rien ne s’estompe, tout en douceur, une rondeur de malts s’installe doucement puis vient une amertume de poche de thé longuement infusée et refroidie. Malgré qu’il s’agisse d’une bière bien particulière, je reconnais très clairement la Signature de la Maison.

tricksta_p (2423) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of tropical fruits, grass, grapefruit, earl grey, tea leaves, some guava notes, fresh hops. Flavour is rather bitter with a dry finish. Body is medium. I generally LOVE Earl Grey in my beer and this one just flatout rocks. Delicious beer.

Idiosynkrasie (5335) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2015
341ml bottle. Murky, orangey, deep golden colour, some tiny particles floating around, huge, firm, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Piney and herbal hoppy aroma with perfumed touch, notes of tea, cautious, concentrated hints of tropical fruit and glue. Taste is herbal and bitter hoppy, some tropical fruit with a touch of glue, flashes of Earl Grey. Slightly weird mixture.

UXO (1005) - CANADA - SEP 23, 2015
Appearance: muddy opaque deep gold with a short ivory head head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: black tea, bergamot, tropical fruit, citrus, light caramel, earthy. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-low carbonation, medium duration bitter finish. (4/5) The appearance is a bit misleading on this: during most of the pour, it was looking like a bright and clear deep gold / pale amber, but the last half-inch turned out to be chock full of particulate and what looks to be tea. I could’ve poured it a lot cleaner, but didn’t. (One might therefore argue it actually deserves a 4/5 instead a 3/5 for appearance, but that wouldn’t change the overall score.) Very nice other than that, with the name certainly giving you a hint of what’s to come: lots of black tea and tropical fruit (guava puree), playing well with the Nelson Sauvin hop (which I particularly like). The tea bitterness also works well with the hop bittering, making this taste more bitter than the 50IBU would suggest. It’s pretty rare for me to have beer with breakfast, but I could be convinced to have on of these! (16/20)

procraste (307) - FRANCE - SEP 10, 2015
Jolie amertume pas croisée souvent: très âpre et sèche ainsi que courte en bouche ( en même temps pas la peine de s’éterniser lorsque l’expression est la bonne ! ) ... une pointe fruitée réconfortante en fin de bouche.Pas mal du tout. une chouette brasserie que Dunham !

OOKPIKABLE (193) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2015
Aroma of guava and grapefruit:not much conifer. Tastes of same. Guava gets a little overwhelming / beer gets a little monochromatic as one drinks.

TheJester (2251) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2015
355 mL bottle. Hazy orange-gold with a decent white head. Laces nicely as well. There is mild citrus and tropical fruit in the nose, as well as a little tea. The flavour is much the same. Nice beer.
