Bière cuivrée aux arômes floraux de houblon frais. En bouche, le palais est envahi par une franche amertume puis est soutenu par le malt et le houblon. La finale est très longue et toute en houblons.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2004 Original rating was in the bottle, re-rate on tap. Score as noted is for the tap version. Re-rate (6-Jun-04 - 7-4-5-2-12=3.0): Very nice fresh hop nose with fruity esters in the aroma. Orange coloured with white head that recedes to cover. Strong bitter diva with little chance for the maltiness or fruity ale character to appear in a supporting role. Mouthfeel is fairly simple. On tap at Vices et Versa. * * * * * Original rating (04/22/04 - 3-2-1-2-4=1.2): Overwhelming citrusy hop aroma. Golden coloured beer with full white pillowy head. Extremely bitter and not very pleasing flavour. No supporting malt balance. Grassy aftertaste. Comparing to other ratings, I wonder if there is a problem with this beer... Will try to re-rate at a later date. Bottle.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 15, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2004 Apr 2004: 500 ml bottle. Light, clear orange, smallish head. Bitter oranges in the nose, caramel malt. Very orangey/citrusy on the tongue also, to the exclusion of much other flavor; sour-milk quality also, not pleasant at all as it warms. Very bitter and dry at the finish; without much malt to back it up, this is pretty tough to drink and just not very good.6/3/3/2/8 2.2

Nov 2004, on tap at Vices at Versa in the company of tiggmtl. Similar, but much maltier and sweeter, the sour-milk is muted and the dryness not so apparent. Still not great IMHO, but at least drinkable.

piscator34 (2178) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 27, 2004
Orange in colour, with a hops and citrus aroma. Has a nice hit of hops upfront, followed by grapefruit, malt, and maybe a bit of pine. Lacks the complexity of the Bieropholie IPA, or the balance of Anchor's Liberty Ale, but this is still a very solid example of this style.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 16, 2003
Strong inviting hop aroma. Light copper-orange. Light foamy head. Overpowering initial tart sour flavour in first taste. After that it is drinkable but below average.

nickchalk (229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2003
Nice looking beer, hazy orange colour. Huge white foamy head. Typical hoppy aroma of pineapple with hint of coconut. Tastes of lemons, grapefruit, orange rinds, somewhat sweet; bitter finish. Not too heavy in the mouth. Interesting. Bottle.

jercraigs (8794) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2003
Pours orange amber, good sized off white or beige head. Very fruity citrusy aroma, nice citrusy hoppy bitterness in the flavour. Nice but needs more malt, and should be stronger.
