From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Orange amber pour with a tremendous head that is just ridiculous. Lacing. The aroma has this overripe fruit sensation, stale yeast, and buttery malt. It may have been an older bottle. The body is medium. The taste also had a cooked malt, cantaloupe, and mild hop bitterness.

The aroma is a nice mix of pine, citrus, earth. The flavor is more earth, less pine and citrus, a bit of vegetable. The appearance is absolutely murky, which then settles on the bottom (is that supposed to happen?). The finish is earthy, pine. Medium in body. Not bad.

@ The Ginger Man à Manhattan. En fût. Une bière bien malté avec des notes de miel. Des drôles odeurs de pipi de chat se dégage. La bouche est tout de même agréable avec des notes de houblons frais et de miel.

dmac (4632) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 16, 2014
12oz bottle from Xroads. Poured a hazed orange body with an average wized dense frothy off white head. Aroma of rotting citrus, old hops, honey, wax, some dough. Flavor makes this seem like its an older bottle, old citrus fruit, bad honey, wax, dough some seltzer water. Blah not a fan

Mep3222 (842) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Nice hop aroma, some floral citrus and some piney. Taste is malty, almost a caramelized malty, with a bitter piney hop finish. A slight bit of almost a syrupy falseness to the malt?? Not sure where that is coming from. Ok ipa, but a bit too malty and not quite balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

robinvboyer (3495) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle at the mondiale 2014. Copper pour, medium off white head. Light citrus, light pine, caramel malt aroma. Soft mouth feel, soft carb. Finish is medium bitter, earthy and malty. Again, light pine and citrus. Boring.

czar (5581) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2014
from bottle at mondial 2014, mtl. unclear dark golden with a small creamy off-white cap, some retention and lacing. doughy lightly toasted malts, caramel touch, fruitiness - mostly oranges, pine and resin, very spicy and peppery, bit of dirt and bitter herbs. moderate carbonation, light body, sweetish piney-citrusy-spicy-peppery finish.

Boutip (5133) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle: Poured a light amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention. Aroma of grainy cereal notes with dank hops is not very good. Taste is also dominated by weird grainy cereal notes with dank hoppy notes. Body is average with OK carbonation. Something is wrong with the malt bill, the hops profile or some of the other ingredients that were added but in any cases this is not something I would want to drink again.
