3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
In short: A crisp, dry and grapefruity blonde IPA. Superb session beer.
How: Tap at Vices & Versa, Montreal
The look: cloudy golden yellow body topped by a persistent small off-white head
In long: Nose is citrusy hops (mostly white grapefruit) with some grassy notes. Taste packs just enough of crisp cereals, low sweetness sensation, a tiny bit of honey, a whole lot of citrusy hops (still mostly grapefruity), lemony citric notes. Finish is medium bitter and medium dry. This is exactly my type of drink-by-the-gallons summer IPA. Such a superb session beer and yet there was that dude at the pub who was sitting there not drinking anything. Oh my God!!! Only one explanation!!! It has started!!! Humanoid cyborgs are walking among us and are taking over.

Bottle: Poured a bright yellow color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma of citrus and hoppy notes is quite refreshing and enjoyable. Taste is a nice mix between some floral notes with nice fresh citrus notes and a light hoppy bitter finish. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed with nice used of citrus hops.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2011 Cloudy golden pour with a thick white head. Solid aroma of citrusy and slightly resinous hops, there’s a mild malt presence too. In the mouth, the hops provide a sturdy citrusy/resinous one-two punch, there’s a shy malt presence and bitterness in the end. The body is medium and oily while the carbonation is medium. At 6.5% abv, this is a bit strong for a pale ale, but it provides a very satisfying hop fix and it’s definitely easy to drink. Great work indeed.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at V&V. Pours a clear light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, banana, citrus hops, flowery hops, light fruits. Flavor of light fruits, tropical fruits, bready malt with a very bitter finish. Aroma is a little better than the flavor, which is a bit more bitter, but overall it is very good.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
341 ml. bottle @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Bottled on 05/2013. Pours hazy golden with a rocky white head. Nose reveals lots of fruity (incl. citrus & orange) USA hops, very nice. Taste is citrus and grapefruits + orange hops, very fruity and juicy, citrus, some malts and touch sweetness upfront, finish is lightly floral with some pine balancing the rest. Really easy to drink could pass a nicely sessionable IPA for me. Really good stuff.
