3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber, slightly hazy ale. Normal white-ish head that look more creamy than fizzy. Awesome aroma of citrus and flowers with what appears to be a solid caramel-ish malt backbone. Taste is ... well, totally memorable : The piney aspects of the hops is much more evident here, and the malts take the form of some pretty strong bready and spicy notes. Finish is just abrupt enough being totally unbalanced --- that one is extremely balanced, inspite of being, well, what it is : a doped-up IPA. Terrific, really.

Dissipating white foamy head atop an orange body. While most IPAs have a citrus nose this is more a fruit bowl. Flavour is nicely tart with a mellow orange rind and soapy flowers. Lingering bitter hop finish. Very tasty. 355ml bottle purchased for $2.80 from Spinnakers Spirit Merchants in James Bay.

Dark gold pour. Aroma is hop forward, citrus, pine and grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit, pine, citrus, lemon and a hint of lime at end. Very well balanced and good IPA. Will try again.

Excellente IPA. En vente régulière et en 6 pack un peu partout en Ontario. Superbe amertume, goût fruits tropicaux dû au houblon utilisé ( Citra ). J’ai acheté un 6pack directement à la brasserie à Barrie, bel endroit et on peut gouter tous leurs produits gratuitement en dégustation. Pamplemousse, amertume tranchante. Excellent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
An orange beer with a medium and blond head. The nose has strong and tropical fruityness, papaiyas, mangos, some lychee, quite strong fructose. Taste has peaches, medium bitterness, the fruits are staying in the mouth. Unfortunately, the hoppyness is suffered with this bottle and the bitterness is changed to slightly wooden. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. This should be enjoyed fresher but good beer anyway.

Bottle poured to pint glass. Hazy amber. Very bitter and surprisingly smooth. How did they do that? I had to try this beer just for the name, butt I would drink it again for the taste.

Reddish pour with big white head. Big hops but the malt flavour is there. Not as hoppy as I remember from the first tasting last year. Still decent.

Bottle from Saveur-Biere.com - Color: clear amber beer with no carbonation and small white foam. Smell: nice hoppy nose with grassy and floral notes and well balanced of malt as caramel. Taste: nice sensation on mouth, fresh hoppy taste with fruity notes. Really fresh and well balanced. Aftertaste: wet bitterness. And nice grassy taste.
