Pour is a pale golden peach with deep colored center and a white head. Nose has a mix of light grain and stale malt up front with a moderate amount of fruits, pineapple, grapefruit, and a bit of acidic citrus. Taste is a bit cleaner, grains a bit more integrated with a very tropical fruit back end. Body is lighter, a touch syrupy, with assertive carbonation and a fairly dry and bitter finish.

Boutip (4699) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle: Poured a hazy orangey color ale with a nice huge white head with excellent retention and some very good lacing as well. Aroma of citrus hoppy notes with light Brett presence is very interesting. Taste is also dominated citrus notes with light piney notes with some Brett presence that is noticeable and a lightly sweet finish. Body is about average with excellent carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Interesting take on the style but Brett presence is not as dominant as I would have expected.

reebtogi (4151) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 27, 2014
650ml bomber pours a pale amber color with a massive white head that leaves some nice thick lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus with some yeasty notes. Taste is a grapefruit and herbal bitterness with a light fruity and grainy malt sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation which tickles the palate nicely. Quite bitter, meaning it should satisfy many of the hopheads out there, but has other complexities to it, that make it a very good brew. Recommended.

tom10101 (2723) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle (650 ml). From Damon, thanks! Cloudy bright orange with a medium white head and good lacing. Aroma is a burst of tropical fruits along perfume hops, caramel and light brettanomyces. Taste is also of tropical fruits/mango along caramel/malt, light sweetness and light bitterness. Medium body (a tad heavy for the style). Moderate/medium carbonation. Dry finish. Good IPA even if the brettanomyces are light and the body is a tad too heavy. Really good job with the hops here. Tasty.

First of my 808s n FartRates reviews.
Pours a hazy yellow with a decent enough head.

The aroma is peach and fruity with a bunch of tart fruit and mild funkiness.

The flavor is citrus with some tart fruit. It’s fairly dry & nicely hoppy. I caught a bit of solvent in this one which cuts the pleasantry down just a notch for me...
But it is an enjoyable beer.
