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.

Sammy (8725) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2007
West Coast style IPA from this up and coming brewpub eventually brewery. Samped at Mondiale 2007. Fresh, orange with a little head. Grapefruit nose. Orange citrus taste. Medium mouthfeel and very refreshing finish. Top 15% IPA.

Separatix (16) - CANADA - MAY 19, 2007
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.

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2007
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.

LadySusan (720) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2007
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.

Comments: That’s a marvel and frankly, nothing less than what I expected from these guys, pure unadulterated citrus hops glory combined with delicate complex yeastiness, all supported by genuine, pure, crunchy cerealic malts, both chewy and crisp. Two thumbs up!

Goldorak (439) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2007
Sampled at Vices & Versa during their 3rd anniversary party.

A darker shade of caramel/copper, with a thin, but sturdy and clingy lace.
Started subdued and flowery sweet, the citrusy c-hops became more and more present, and showed some resinous tones too.
Clean and quaffable, with an excellent balance of crunchy malts and crisp, bitter hops and a dry finish. From a brewery that just opened, I’m impressed. This isn’t a tongue twister, but it has about all of the elements I look for in an IPA.
