When I can get my hands on this beer I try to buy it all excellent rendition of an IPA picked it up at Bières du Monde in Aylmer

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amber-red colour. Cloudy, with a thick head. Hop aroma is rich with tropical fruit (mango, kiwi, cantaloupe). Rich, deep bitterness and stacks of fruit on the palate, plus a sweet underpinning that is mainly pale malt but with a firm, light crystal malt stickiness. A fat dose of yeast, long and pithy and Orvallish, adds complexity yet somehow avoids impeding the exceptional brightness of this beer. So rich, complex, bright and rewarding, this beer f’n rocks. Simply one of the best IPAs I’ve ever had.

Bottle, Volo. Warm red, hazy with gigantic rocky head. Dry, floral, funk-friendly and aromatic. Soft gentle mouthfeel. Killer Orval and JP-like finish. OMFG this beer is great. DRY with green olive-like bitterness, lemon zest. Complex. Superlative. Memorable.

Pours copper with an off white head. Smells of wildflowers, some citrus, some peppery hints, spicy, some funky elements. Tastes citrussy and slightly bitter with some nice dry elements I can’t come up with a god deScriptor for and an earthy finish. I’m REALLY liking this brewery’s beers.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught at Volo. Pours a rich, cloudy orange-copper with a moderate white-ish head. Strong, complex hoppy nose with more subtle malts. Hops and malts are beautifully balanced in the flavour. Slightly bitter, lasting finish. Simply a superb beer.

Arômes florales au nez, robe légèrement voilée. Plutôt céréaleux, final sèche. Houblon persistant sans être déplacé, qui ressort surtout en arrière goût.

Bu à Vices et Versa en fut (10 oz). Couleur terre cuite un peu ombragée, petit collet crème. Arome d’houblon très fruité, comme du thé au pêche. Goût un peu fruit, style vergé, petit ameretume plaisant. Solide!

On tap at Vices et Versa. Beautiful dark orange, thick creamy white head. Really resiny hops in aroma - same again in taste. Medium to full bodied yet perfectly carbonated and incredibly drinkable. Lots of hops, but lots of malt to balance things out. The best pint I had on my Montreal trip, congrats to the brewer on a very fine effort.

Appears to be a 500ml brown bottle. Guessing on the size as there is no label per se, just a white sticker with "Postcolonial IPA 6.5%" handwritten on it. (Hand?)Bottle from Goldorak. Head started to creep out the bottleneck immediately after uncapping. Very heady pour, 2 fingers plus worth of whitish cream, gernerous lacing on the glass. The beer itself is a hazy amber-orange. It absolutely glows when held up to the light. Hoppy aroma, a mix of oranges with grapefruit and lemon peel notes. Flavour was a bit unexpected - sweet orange hop flavours, lemon acidity, drier malts, some spiciness, earthiness, leather, finishes grapefruity. Some other raters noticed it as well (I thought I may have been imagining it), but theres some resemblance to Orval or De Ranke XX in this brew, which is a good thing in my opinion. Excellent beer. It’s beer like this that make trading so rewarding. Thanks again Goldorak.
