Bottle. Pours golden, smallish head. Never saw so much yeast strains in the chalice for a good pour. Aroma is citrus/grapefruit and piney hops in a somewhat "rough" way. Taste is sweet malts and lots of hops taste -- pineable and grapefruits. Would’ve like more complexity. Good body, oily mouthfeel. Bitter finish. All around... decent but a wee bit expansive.

Draft at Vices et Versa with Andrew, Ricky, PJ, Brendan and Street. Pours a light amber orange body with no head, light white lacing. Aroma is faint hop, fresh citrus fruit and spice. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with nice bitterness upfront, grapefruit, pine, citrus, lemon, light malt character and spice.

Whatup14 (1616) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2013
Bouteille 500ml, aucune date. Couleur orangée, mousse blanc cassé abodante laissant un ilôt et une belle dentelle, particules en suspension. Arôme d’agrumes, houblon, malt, mais le tout un peu faible. Goût de miel, agrumes, sucré, zeste d’orange, alcool, amertume moyenne en fin de bouche, le malt supplante le houblon est-ce dû à l’âge? Carbonation moyenne-élevée, corps moyen.

Not anything marvelous but I think it deserves a better rating. Tons of pine and candied orange.

[bottle at DwEEBs meeting] Potent cat piss hops with some phenolic pepper accents and spicy hops. Cloudy orange-yellow under a yellowy foam. Salty cat piss hops flavour with some peppery phenolics and a ton of bitterness. Medium body, high carbonation, astringent finish.

Theydon_Bois (16885) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2012
Tap at Vices et Versa, Montreal - 03/03/12. Cloudy blonde with a small white head. Pine, grapefruit, mango, hops and a sweet malt nose. Taste similar to aroma but not overly hoppy, more malt coming through. Medium body, low carbonation. More akin to an IPA than a DIPA IMHO.

Sam_Sicotte (33) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2012
Verse une bière orangée presque opaque. Col couleur crème et mousseux. Nez d’aiguilles de pins et de résine. En bouche: sucre, pamplemousse et alcool. Pas une vilaine bière pour l’amateur d’amertume mais un bémol au niveau du sucre et de l’alcool. Manque d’équilibre.

cfrancis (3139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2012
Pours a cloudy deep gold with almost no carbonation whatsoever. Aroma is pine hop bite and sweet caramel malt. Taste has the initial pine hop bitterness and dryness, then it sweetens out with the malt but it’s lacking in the complexity you will find with the top tier DIPA’s. Still one of the better ones coming out of Quebec though.

Bean (78) - Saint-Eustache, Québec, - MAR 4, 2012
No foam, hazy, lots of yeast floating in a golden-orange liquid. Not impress with the look of that brew. Little malty nose with slight resin notes. Nice bitterness, but I find the body a bit too light. Small tea after-taste that surprised me in a good way. 1,99$ for a 341ml bottled would be a good deal but at 8,99$ for 500ml, I have absolutly no intention to buy it again.

Bouteille 500ml. De couleur dorée-orange et voilée, Nez de houblon citrique, herbeux (herbes fraîches) et légèrement résineux, de grains de céréales, moyen de fruits (agrumes) avec des notes de caramel et des traces de biscuits. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture moyennement huileuse, légèrement résineuse et aux petites notes crémeuses. Goût amer de houblon citrique (pamplemousse, une amertume présente toute la gorgée) accompagné d’un moyen goût fruité (agrumes, traces de fruits tropicaux) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un moyen goût de caramel et de grains de céréales frais, avec des notes de pain et de biscuits puis en finale l’amertume de houblon reprend sa dominance en affichant un caractère plus herbeux (herbes fraîches, notes de thé), asséchant et légèrement résineux en plus d’être accompagné de notes de noix. Post-goût long et sec, assez amer de houblon citrique, herbeux et légèrement résineux avec un goût fruité (zeste d’agrumes).
