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.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2012
On tap at Apex, pours an opaque orange with a small beige head. Aroma of floral hops, citrus and doughy / biscuity malt. Flavour of leafy, grassy hops, orange peel, with a very pleasant grassy finish. Medium-to-full bodied with a very well-crafted flavour profile. Very nice.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2011
Dégustée en fût au Vices & Versa à Montréal. De couleur ambrée foncée et voilée. Nez de houblon résineux aux notes citriques, florales et terreuses, moyennement malté de caramel sucré et léger de fruits (agrumes, traces de pêches). Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture très légèrement résineuse. Goût moyen-amer de houblon résineux et aux notes florales (une amertume présente toute la gorgée) accompagné d’un moyen goût fruité (agrumes) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel doux avec de faibles traces de biscuits puis en finale l’amertume de houblon revient en force en affichant un caractère légèrement terreux avec des notes citriques asséchantes. Post-goût moyen-long, moyen-amer de houblon résineux, légèrement terreux, aux notes florales et citriques avec un léger goût fruité (zest d’agrumes). (hiver 2006-07)

neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2011
On cask at Cask Days 2011 at Hart House, served in an English pint glass. Pours hazy caramel-brown with a minimal, coarse head. The head fades and leaves trace lace. The nose is piney with fruity notes of apple and peach. The flavour is balanced between moderate sweetness and moderate bitterness throughout with a peachy fruitiness and a slight earthiness. A gentle spiciness builds towards the end. On the palate, it is medium in body with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice fruity IPA that is very well balanced. Well worth another try. 2011-10-30

legrosjf (45) - CANADA - OCT 23, 2011
Version "Harvest": Couleur rouse cuivrée avec un liquide embrouillé. Forme un petit collet discret sur le verre. Des effluves de jus d’orange fraîchement pressé sont perceptibles. En bouche l’aspect "fraicheur" d’un houblonnage avec une matière fraichement cueillie rend l’amertume à 75 IBU moins corsée. Une version délectable de la toujours très bonne Postcolonial !

callmemickey (3005) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Pale amber-gold body. Moderate head. Not the greatest retention. Good lacing left on the glass. S: A bit of noble hops. Herbal and floral bitterness. Tea like notes. T: More of the same herbal character from the nose. Limited malt presence. Slightly bitter overall. M: Slightly thin bodied. Bitter finish. Not crisp, nor refreshing, however. Lingering finish. O: Uninspired. Not particularly bad... simply bland.

TheEpeeist (3399) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2011
750 ml bottle, no label. Thanks to Phil for these cool Canadian IPAs. Misty brown with a huge, craggy off-white head leaving chunks of lace. Nose is custard, meadow and lemon cookies. Juicy medium light with a tang and delightful effervescence. Taste is lemon, limeade, candi and grass. Finishes a bit earthy adding a nice rustic quality. Loved it.

mrfart (3) - BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2011 does not count
Drank this in Montréal at vice versa. (pub were they have more than 30 beers on tap). Of all the beers I tried there (12 tasters in 2 days) this was hands down the best. Unlike most of the beers from micro breweries in quebec, this beer doesn’t go overboard with a heavy hoppy taste. Taste is complex. Earthy. Very pleasing and well balanced.

Stine (1627) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2011
Burnt orange beer with a lovely, expressive aroma of peaches, honey, perfume and malt. It’s a bit minty with a stark or flat bittersweetness that always seems more prevalent than its generally pleasant, if basic, hop flavor. Sharp but not abrasive palate; lingering bitterness and biscuit flavor. Only quite average.

Thorpe429 (5011) - , Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2011
Bottle courtesy of SFLpunk. Served in a tulip. Pours a clear light amber color with a thin off-white head. Good spotty lacing and a few bubbles on top. The nose carries a bit of light malt and some very faint citrus. The flavor is bready with a bit of caramel and some citrus and floral hops. Light fruit and a bit of cherry. Medium body with moderate carbonation and a light bitterness in the finish. Tastes slightly oxidized with a bit of cardboard. Okay beer, though not up to par with good versions of this style. Serving type: bottle

georgebrassin (176) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2011
Cloudy amber with a large white creamy head. Aroma is resin and flowery hops with caramel malts. Full body with medium carbonation. Flavours are caramel, bitter with a nice citrus taste and warming alcohol. Residual sugar brings a nice balanced with the hops.
