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.

Sampled on draft at Capone’s on 12/03/2009. Pours a dark amber/chestnut brown color with golden ruby orange hues when held to a light source and a one finger off-white head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Not much in the way of lacing. Strong caramel malt aroma that isn’t very hoppy. Slight earthiness with minimal pine presence and very subtle citrus in the nose. Chewy resinous medium body with much more of a hop presence than the aroma leads you to believe. Strong caramel malt backbone with some slight toasted biscuit character. Dry pine and sweet citrus notes, mostly grapefruit and orange peel. There is some slight alcohol warmth but overall this is pretty quaffable. Sweet yet sharp, dry finish.

On Tap at Capone’s, Pours a nice burnt orange color with some lacing. Nose has moderate hop presence. First sip is strong with malt, some grassy over tones. Hops take over quickly. Finishes clean. Not bad.

Tap at Capones. Pours a hazy orange amber with a medium creamy off white head. Aroma of floral, piney and earthy hops and some caramel. Flavor of the same. More of an English style IPA

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.

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 (5365) - 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 (2251) - 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.
