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.

Draught at Volo. Pours a medium brown with little to no head, light body. There is citrus in the aroma, melon, cantaloupe. Floral aroma also with wonderful yeast. Invitingly complex. Flavour is earthy with grapefruit, citrus, lemon zest, grass. Very pleasing and balanced. A most excellent IPA and one of the better ones out of Quebec that I have tried so far.

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

Bov (10454) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 26, 2010
@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

Eructoblaster (3358) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2010
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!

phaleslu (7536) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2010
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.

Ibrew2or3 (7461) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 28, 2010
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.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Light hoppy aroma with floral notes and a light sweetness. The flavor has floral hops, a hint of citrus and lightly sweet malts. Well balanced.
