COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

jgb9348 (5677) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2009
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.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2009
500ml bottle. Sweet hop tang on the nose when first opened. Poured a very effervescent yellow gold with quite a bit of carbonation. 3 inches of foam took about five minutes to subside. Very burnt straw in the first sip subsiding to an earthy grassiness that is offputting in the finish. Overly carbonated for the style. Strange mixture of flavours that ends a tad too funky for me.

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - SEP 30, 2008
(Bottle). Hoppy aroma, without much fruitiness. Orange amber color with gigantic fluffy white head. Flavor is tart, musty, bitter, and distinctly unpleasant, with little of the usual IPA citrus appealing character.
