Bière légèrement plus alcoolisée aux reflets roux orangés à l'amertume prononcée et au nez floral. Ce classique anglais fut jadis concocté ainsi dans le but de faciliter l'exportation dans les colonies britanniques, entre autres aux Indes, d'où son appellation.

On tap at Mondial de la bière Montréal 2015. An unclear, dark golden to amber colored beer topped by a small, off-white head. Citrusy, piney aroma with a wort-like, bready maltyness. Citrus, pine cones and a nice bitterness dominates the flavor, but there’s too much bready, caramel-ish malts in the back. Lacks a bit on bitterness too I think. Full body and a smooth and nice carbonation. Bitter, piney finish with a malty backdrop. Too much on the malty side this one, and I wouldn’t mind more bitterness either. 150611

draft, a big flowery IPA here, moderate malts (on the wheat and light color aide), then some light belgian style yeast flavors (belgian ale), going to a grassy and floral hop finish. Dry throughout.

Draught @ Mondial de la bière Montréal 2015, Montréal, QC
Pours hazy deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel and citrus. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long malty, citrus and grape finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Tap at vices&versa. Amber with small head. Medium body with dry, earthy hops. Medium bitterness. Not my favorite hops, but well made.

Belle couleur ambree avec un col assez resistant. Aromes d’agrumes, d’herbe, de caramel. Moyennement bien balancer. Pas tres impressionnant pour ma part...

On cask at cask days event in toronto. Great ipa. But more on the malt heavy side with caramel , bread, and earthy tones in taste. Hops are subdued a bit here b ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ambro206 (350) - ITALY - AUG 31, 2014
All’olfatto la birra si presenta giustamente erbacea ma in bocca è un disastro. Carbonazione e luppolatura esagerata ne fanno una birra ai limiti della bevibilità.

On tap at Ho.st. Strangely this tap pours a ridiculously clear gold for an IPA. Big bready citrusy hop aroma. Very soft bodied with a med-full mouthfeel gives it a luscious mouthfeel.

Has the English and malty characteristic I don’t like. Light amber. Blah. Had this on draft at the Hopfenstark brewpub. It’s good but not what I like hence the better rating than I want to give it
