COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Nice IPA. Some citrus grapefruit in nose. Pours cloudy orange with great head and lacing. Malt well-integrated and robust. Light bitter finish. Some booze as well. Finish is nice, even with some perfume. Tap at Vices et Versa.

Solid english style IPA for me. Pours light brown with some nutty notes and some earthy bitterness. Getting some caramel as well. Medium sweet and pretty light bitterness for the style.

Thanks a million to pat for hooking me up with this! Pours a dark brown amber red with two nice fingers of head almost looks like a sour brown. Lists of grapefruit and citrus notes in this one. The taste is mildly sweet at first followed by a heavy hit of hops and carbonation. A real nice IPA.

Opens up with only a small hiss, uh oh. Pours a nice copper with a moderate amount of head that stay for the whole time. Aroma is really restrained with a few floral notes here and there. Taste is medium sweet with a good but not overpowering bitterness. Mouthfeel is nice with just the right amount of carbonation for my personal tastes. Flavors impressed me, really. I got bubblegum, cotton candy and a little perfume. I usually prefer my IPAs to pack more hop flavors but the malt and hops interplay really made this one special for me. Great stuff!

Bouteille 750 ml. La couleur est cuivrée, légèrement voilée avec une mousse presque qu’inexistante. Nez de houblon et de clémentine. Elle goutte le houblon, la terre, la clémentine bien mure avec un peu de caramel. C’est plus résineux mais on peu percevoir des notes florales. La carbonisation est très légère, ça texture en bouche est moyennement sirupeuse. Je m’attendais à un de quoi d’un peu plus frappant mais ça reste une très bonne IPA.

750ml bottle shared with albatross. Pours a hazy orangeish amber with a nice white head. Aroma is malt, caramel, earth. Flavor is caramel, sweet candies, creme brulee, earth, light roast. Finish is bitter citrus (mainly orange and lemon), with a touch of earthy hops. Lingering citrus flavors. Light to medium body, soft mouthfeel. Average carbonation. Good stuff!

Whatup14 (600) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2013
Bouteille 750ml. Couleur ambrée foncée, mousse beige aérienne laissant une dentelle légère. Arôme de pamplemousse, houblon résineux, poussière. Goût de caramel brûlé, sucré, houblon terreux, légère amertume en fin de bouche. Carbonation faible, corps moyen.

On tap @ L’Hermite (Victoriaville). Clear amber with a small creamy off-white head and intense lacing. Aroma of intense citrus at first and then moderate citrus along with piney notes and slight caramel. Taste is of citrus (less intense than aroma), pine and malt/caramel. Moderate bitterness. Palate is clean and slightly dry. Medium body. Fresh, refreshing and drinkable. Good IPA, not too malty (which is good)!
