Wow, what a IPA! Worth the try for anyone, and if you really like IPAís, it is one of the best in Quebec. Another reason why Dunham is in my top 5 brewer in Quebec. Pour, and enjoy!

(341mL bottle from Depanneur Peluso) Pours really murky deep brownish gold, fine white head, little lace. Aroma sweet, caramel malt with guava, muddled tropical fruit and orange, a floral and slightly spicy impression that must be the earl grey, with just a hint of bergamot (hard to pick out without looking!). On the palate the caramel is much lighter, less sweet. Brusque citrus oils at first (hops, bergamot, both?) giving way to more guava flesh in the middle and then back to a tannic, astringent finish. It is interesting how much the finish, in particular, is tea-like in character and flavor. I think the hop profile is well-matched to the guava and tea additions, though it may also be somewhat muted compared to freshly bottled. The finish is extremely dry but the bitterness restrained. Mouthfeel medium-full, carb soft, slightly oily. Clings to the roof of the mouth. The additions certainly donít beat you over the head, but do a decent job complementing whatís a good IPA to begin with. I feel like it might have been a bit punchier fresh/on draught but definitely would get again.

Arcanor (58) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
From J. Walter 341ml bottle, golden and hazy with small to no head. Hop and floral smell disappear pretty fast once poor. Medium bitterness and salty. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation and long bitter finish. At first it look and smell as a solid product, but the more I drink my glass less Iím exited, still a good beer.

Bottle.
Pours hazy orange with a fluffy white head. Tropical aroma consists of guava and oranges. Itís not super bitter by any means. Well balanced and actually on the sweet side. Very enjoyable.

Pours a hazy light orange. Aromas of citrus and plenty of grapefruit. Tastes of grapefruit and orange peel. Lovely bittersweet swallow. Overall this is my second Kissmeyer collaboration and consider me impressed.

piscator34 (1946) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Bottled sample. Dark gold in colour with floaties and medium carbonation. Very floral on the nose. I get notes of Fruit Loops breakfast cereal, along with Bergamot orange, tropical fruit, and pale malt. Citrus, tropical stone fruit, and flowers in the mouth, with an odd fruit sweetness. Moderate bitterness. A strange animal. Just ok for me.

BreWedge (296) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
341 ml bottle sample. Pours a brownish/gold with plenty of sediment and a small off-white head. Aromas are a leafy spice, I get the early grey (bergamot) as itís one of my go to teas at breakfast. Taste is bitter and dry, like a tea thatís been over-steeped. Medium body and carbonation, long dry finish.

Bottle. Pours golden orange with a white head. Fruity hops, moderate bitterness, light flowery notes and a light bitter hoppy finish. A bit more hoppy on the nose than in the flavor.

Jesterdeal (1789) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle at the 11K/7K/5K. A pleasant surprise. Aroma of grapefruit, guava, passionfruit and stinky resin. Pours dull amber with a nice frothy head. Taste is grapefruit, guava, green tea and pine. Great sweet mouthfeel but just enough bitterness to keep it in check. I wasnít aware there was anything in here, it just tasted like a great IPA. Nice beer.
