Growler. I found this beer to be very plain and devoid of that great citrusy/piney/resiny hop characteristic usually associated with IPAs.

@Mondial de la Bière 2010, Strasbourg - hazy blond colour with a solid pale beige foam left; fairly hoppy with notes of caramel and citrus, almond and honey; medium to full-bodied; fairly bitter but not in an aggressive way; long flowery and fruity notes in a lingering hoppy finish - balanced

On tap at Vices et Versa (Montréal, QC). Hazy amber body with low carbonation and a lasting off-white creamy head. Its hoppy aroma carries malty and melon hints. Sharp hoppy taste with fruity and oaky notes. Ends with a decent bitter finish. Well done!

22 oz. bottle filled counter-pressure from a tap at Charleston Beer Exchange, courtesy of a trade bonus with Maltzilla- thanks, Diego! Filled one month to the day before I tried it. Aroma of floral hops, perfume, caramel malts, orange citrus, apples, and a bit of soap. The flavor largely follows suit, albeit not quite as nicely; the bitterness and soap both go up a notch but not overwhelmingly so. Light-medium bodied, with average carbonation and a bitter mouthfeel. Good IPA.

Courtesy someone at Fruit in the Room, thank you. Pours deep copper with modest off white head. The aroma is tart and spicy and a little bit of floral hops with some sweetness in the background. The taste is similar with spicy to tart hop notes leaning toward a sense of acidic like tartness with a smooth sweet sugary malty backbone.

Bière avec un beau collet de mousse formant une dentelle sur les parois du verre, plutôt malté et peu houblonné à première gorgé mais s’équilibre avec le temps, bonne saveur du houblon, 6.5% en alcool, dégusté dans un verre de 12 oz en fut à la brasserie.
