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.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2009
Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of Earth and hops. I get none of the fruit or citrus that others find in the nose. Poured amber/brown in color with a medium-sized, off-white, dense head that lasted throughout . A great head. Cloudy. Excellent lacing. Flavor is medium bitter. Tastes of hops, Earth, and light malts. Medium body. Soft to average carbonation. Average texture. Light to medium bitter hop and Earth finish.

cfrancis (2657) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2009
bottle courtesy of Fred82. Aroma is all hop. Really nice aroma with a little floral as well. Pours a cloudy orange amber colour with a generous white head. Body is well carbonated and somewhat complex. Flavour is somewhat floral with a great hop bitterness in the aftertaste. I’m really liking this brewery. Need Fred to get me some more!

Boutip (5031) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 23, 2009
Bottle: Poured a hazy amber-orange color ale with a quite large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of cat pea and dry hops which is somewhat reminiscent of Orval. Taste is also a strange mix between some dry European style hops with some funky Orvalesque notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Bottle had kind of aged and developed an Orval like infection which was very interesting though necessarily voluntary.

TheJester (2063) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2009
From cask at Vices et Versa. Hazy amber-orange with a small but sticky white head. Beautiful citrus (grapefruit, orange) and pine hoppy aroma. Flavour maintains the hop presence, with the addition of caramel and biscuit from the malt. Carbonation is about what you’d expect from a cask. Very, very solid.

JulienHuxley (3936) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2013 Mmmm this is a good IPA. Hazy amber color with a tan head this beer has drink me all over it. The nose is nice and hoppy a little grassy hops with a solid malt aroma in the backround. The mouthfeel is full and almost oily. Taste is rich malt and good bitterness but not dry.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Very piney citrus aroma, almost feels sticky on the nose. Very hop foward, piney and citrusy with solid malts backing it up. great ipa!
