Metalchopz (2501) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2015
Can from a Metro store in St-Jerome, QC. Pours a clear amber colour with a big frothy-foamy warm light-beige head that lasts long and offers soapy lacing. Malty nose with caramel notes. The hops seems like some of the chemical grassy ones found in macro brews. The taste is better, with some decent hops of grass over the caramel malts. Some fruitiness lingers. Then, grass and grain. Nothing real bad, but nothing too crazy. Would not have again with all the better average IPAs out there.

Franckg (251) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 26, 2015
Robe rouge-orangée translucide avec un mince filet de mousse. Le premier coup d’oeil laisse présager un corps mielleux et malté. Les arômes le confirment. Le malt caramélisé et épicé prend pratiquement toute la place. Léger côté citronné, d’orange et de diacétyle. En bouche, on est loin de la mention "IPA américaine" indiquée sur la canette. Encore une fois très malté, le houblon étant relégué au rôle de spectateur par sa présence faible mais qu’on percoit par son côté de pamplemousse. Sinon c’est âcre, amer, sans personnalité et l’amertume fade. Une bière d’après-midi respectable, sans plus.

I’ve had this several times before and I was never particular impressed. I’m still not, but this batch seems like a slight improvement. Pour is a beautiful amber with a big foamy tan cap. It just looks so inviting. Nose is too malt-forward, but there seems to be a lot more going on that I remember. Floral, piney hops mostly, but some unexpected citrus; caramel malt, some earthiness. Taste is sweet/earthy/nutty/spicy (I’m getting lazy with this shyte), medium-bodied, oily but weirdly creamy texture (it kind of works), with a decidedly, but boringly, bitter finish. There’s also that lingering metallic aftertaste that seems to be present in all of Farnham’s beers. Overall it tastes like more of an intensely-bitter EPA, lacking any real hop flavour to match the bitterness, but I feel like this stuff is improving., at least.

jgb9348 (4946) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Explodes upon opening, but fades fairly quickly. Deep copper and light brown coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of caramel, grain and very light hops - not much there. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and very herbal spicey hops showing with some noticeable alcohol, a touch of herbs and hop bitterness and even a bitter dark alcohol flavour as well. Aftertaste is fairly one-dimensional with the alcohol, spicey malt and deep pungent hop bitterness coming through - with no real respite. Overall, an interesting IPA with more of an English twist, but deep, pungent and strong means its not too enjoyable. I sampled this 473 mL can purchased from Marche Des Sauveurs in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on 20-September-2014 for US$2,99 sampled at home in Washington on 24-November-2014.

JoeMcPhee (8788) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2014
Pale amber gold pour with a thin white head. The nose is slightly sweet and a little bit fruity. Odd sort of sweetness and a bit of corny character. Astringent sort of bitterness. Meh.

Diolch JoeMcPhee. Clear copper with a frothy white head and clinging lace. Malty, metallic aroma. Smooth malty flavour with a metallic finish.

Canette. Une IPA de base, essentiellement sur le houblon. Rafraichissante. Ne laisse pas d’impression particulière.

rodenbach99 (3396) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
Cannette de 473ml. Bière cuivrée avec une mousse beige pâle rocailleuse. Un nez de caramel avec une touche de houblon et d’herbe. Une bouche légèrement caramélisée avec une amertume en fin de bouche. 6\10.

sseb69 (1607) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
En cannette. Couleur ambrée, claire, mousse blanche-beige. Arômes de malt, un peu d’herbe. En bouche, notes de pain grillé, houblons terreux et fruités. Très IPA anglaise, bien construite, elle se boit facilement. Finale maltée qui laisse entrevoir les houblons et une légère amertume. Bonne.
