I really enjoyed this IPA. Pours a golden yellow with a healthy white head that foamed over. Aroma is hop and some citrus. Taste is a nice smooth hop bitterness, dry and well balanced. Very enjoyable. Would definitely have again.

Couleur ambrée avec une bonne mousse. Odeur fruitée et un goût de pamplemousse avec une légère amertume (en bouteille).

Part of a sampler tray at the brewery. Nicely hopped. Low carbonation. Would have preferred more bubbles. Probably my favourite of the tray

Bottle@Quebec City. Cloudy bronze beer with a very strong head. The aroma is very well hopped and dry, and the flavour is hopped and bitter. Overall a nice hopped beer.

New Label, bottled in march 2009. Quite bland IPA although the bitterness was still interesting for this low ABV IPA. Thin, malt is discreet, almost tasteless as the leafy hopping bitterness takes a lot of place without being very convincing. Maybe gets a "good" if one’s feeling friendly, but certainly not a "very good"...

This brewery gets some nasty ratings for their beers often, and to be honest, they are most of the time well deserved. This time though............I don’t agree. This is a decent IPA. There are some really nice hoppy aromas of citrus, and there is a big note of soapiness you get from high alpha hops. There malt backbone is a little lacking so the balance isnt 100% there. Butt the hops are floral, and juicy. The bitterness is a little on the low end, but overall, this is a decent IPA.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very hazy copper coloured body with a huge tan head that lasts and lasts - with even more head coming out of bottle! Aroma of fresh hops, coriander seed, curacao and a light floral bit. Medium-bodied; Strong assertive hops up front with floral and grassy notes more prevalent and a bit of malt and caramel behind. Aftertaste shows good complexity and a good character too. Overall, a nice beer - not super hoppy, but not bad at all...definitely nice to try! I sampled this 500 mL bottle purchased at Bonisoir (Depanneur Peluso) in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on 09-April-2009, sampled on 02-July-2009 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Bottle thanks to GF parents. Clear orange, small white head. Light citrus aroma with herbal and dryness. Herbal flavor, light citrus, lemon, old hops. Medium to thin that was fizzy and watery. I would like to try this fresh.
