3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled draught at the Mondial, Montreal (May 2007). Fairly typical appearance, dark amber to copper, clear, with smallish head and just a bit of lacing....ordinary but very pleasant fruity-hoppy aroma, citrus and a bit of apricot, lightly caramelized malts but the hops dominate.....body is just a bit too sticky, but the fullness isn’t a bad thing overall; just needs a bit more carbonation....on the sweet side at first it seems, but the resinous, acidic hops take over quickly....this is nice enough but it didn’t bowl me over as it did many others.

[on tap at Dieu du Ciel!] Very hazy copper color, with a very nice white head. Poured with some major yeast sediment in the bottom of the pint. Grassy, fruity hop aroma-- very herbal, with plenty of juicy citrus. Piney hop flavors, with plenty of lemon citrus and grapefruit. Subtle, smooth malt balance. Nicely balanced overall.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught. Dark orange with vibrant carbonation and a medium-sized white creamy head. The aroma has some grapefruity hops, oranges, toasted bread, and melding alcohol. Very nice, soft palate. Plenty of oily, resinous hop flavour with agressive piney-ness in the middle. Finishes long and sharp with a decent amount of balanced sweetness. Awesome!
Sampled at Mondial on June 1, 2007.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Mondial.
Light haze, bright amber ale. Tanned creamy head.
Rich malty aroma, a bit spicy in character hop accent.
Earthy, grainy. Neat wide spectrum of bitter flavours. Earthy hops are main attraction. Neat, properly balanced bitter. Slightly different in its style from typical IPA but in good way. Very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tout est dans le nez. Excellents parfums de houblons.
En bouche le malt ne supporte malheureusement pas l’amertume.
Pas mauvais. Mais comme les plaisirs en bouche ne sont pas du tout à la hauteur de ce qu’on aurait pu s’attendre après avoir profiter de son excellent bouquet, ça donne l’impression de déception.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A reddish dark amber ale with a thin off white head. A nice hoppey aroma, with berries, and oragne notes. In mouth, a sweetish lactic malt, with caramel and floral hops, but a bit thin and short in mouth. On tap at Vices versa, Jan. 2007.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Vices et Versa. The color is amber with a beige head. The aroma and aste is of citrus fruits and hops with a bit of sweet caramel. What I liked about this one is the go feeling the bitter taste left in my mouth.
