Bottle shared by "hannont". Colour...cloudy golden amber with a thick head. Nose...fruity, funky and yeasty with stone fruits and citrus zest. Palate...dry, tight, focuses and brimming with orange seeds and white grape pips. The mid palate is tart and gripping and the finish offers the same but with tangerine skins and quince.

My Bottom Line:
Grapefruit, rye, flowers, lemongrass and conifers whirl about in this highly intoxicating IPA-like brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the hazy pale amber.
-All flavors are beautifully harmonious.
-Drinkability is very high.
-Bitterness is herbal, spicy and resinous.
-This is mighty impressive from a brewery I had never heard of. Shame on me,

Hazy orange, huge, frothy, sticky, white head. Tropical fruit, lots of yeast, subtle spice, and citrus zest. Sticky, highly hopped, slightly oily mouth feel, with a solid carb. The finish has a medium bitterness, soft spice and some lightly soapy, zesty, fruity esters in the end. Quite nice.

Bouteille sans date. Robe orangée foncée trouble sans col de mousse. Arômes de fruits tropicaux ( tangerine, melon, litchi, ananas) sous un malt intense poivré et dégageant des effluves de cocktail à l’orange. En bouche, saveurs d’orange, tangerine, litchi et une autre saveur âcre et sucré très agréable que je ne peux trouver. Malt de seigle très bien intégré pour procurer au liquide un goût unique en son genre. Finale plus amère de pamplemousse sucré, citron et zeste d’orange.

Bottle from Spring 2016 CANBIF labelled as "Belgian"- thanks Derek. Opaque coppery amber with an off white creamy head that fades to a nice film. Once things warm up a bit and things open up its a nice floral snouff with some light rye, white pepper, light resin with some orange and yeast, bit of coriander. Moderate body and full carbonation, smooth, nice bitterness that grows as things dry out on the finish. Nice touch of booze and dried citrus on the finish too.

650 ml bottle from Canada Craft club. Aroma: that usual citra aroma of well... You know what but also citrus, pineapples well mixed with spices from fresh rye so we don’t smell that much of cat pee. Oops I said it. App: hazy orange copperish, small white head leaving some little lacing and great retention. Taste and palate: medium body, great mouthfeel with this usual rye texture rye that gives to a beer, a tad velvety, clean bitter finish. Overall: honestly I had Sip of Sunshine before this one and I thought this one would feel like a disaster after such masterpiece. It’s way different, don’t get me wrong but it got my full attention really fast. It’s really well made. Rye has a great presence but not too much. Yes I wished it would have been more fruity but I this is the goal behind this one. It’s too make a rye ipa the Belgian style and I think they succeeded. So I can’t compare this well-made beer with a fruity bomb like SOS. Do I like it? Yes. Do I love it? No. But it’s really well made and deserves this rating. Just the fact that it wasn’t ousted that much by SOS is a pretty great sign it’s good.

L’appelation "IPA" est étrangement choisie. J’aurais opté pour une "american ale" au seigle, au mieux. C’est très peu amère et les houblons sont assez discrets. C’est le seigle qui donne une saveur particulière à l’ensemble mais, même là, le tout me semble un peu trop retenu. J’ai aussi l’impresion de notes quelque peu déplacées, d’alcool collatéral non désiré. Remarquez, peut-être que très fraiche elle est excellente, mais la bouteille que j’ai l’occasion de boire est quelconque.
