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 is the best India pale ale on the market. Bonne amertume. Couleut legerement orangé.

.5 liter bottle- started gushing a bit after opening. Pours a very light gold- relatively clear with a slight haze- massive infectious head -cobwebby looking. Aroma is phenolic, wierrd dirty infection, but not typical brett, with some hay and grass- almsot no hop character. Flavor is pretty lifeless and bland- light stale cracker and dough, with earth, dirt, cobwebs, and a vegetal character- has a lemony tangy bitterness in the end.

The bottle foamed out a little. Lightly hazed with small chunks. Gold with a large off-white head. The aroma is light with a mild citrus and touch of malt. Citrusy flavor with a long dry bitterness. The body is light and the mouthfeel is too lively and carbonated.

500 ml bottle - pours an opaque amber colour with a masssssssive fizzy off-white head. Weird aroma of hops, sure, but there’s almost as much brown sugar, maple syrup(!?) and alcohol. Flavour odd too, not much hoppiness, bland, mainly a malt-bomb. Kind of thin and one-dimensional. Astringent bitter finish. Like no other IPA I’ve had, thankfully. Much like Shakira, the only thing this has going for it is looks.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2007
Sample from 500 ml bottle. Golden amber colour with a fizzy off-white head. Light caramel and citrus aroma. No malt backbone to speak of, just a grassy, lightly metallic bitter finish. Light bodied, dry mouthfeel. More malt please - of course if it had more malt then it would need more hops too because I’m sure what hoppiness it does have would disappear with the least bit of maltiness. So all in all just a poor attempt at an IPA.

Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 15, 2007
Bouteille. Arome floral houblonné, caramel. Couleur or-orangée, mousse qui reste sans laisser de traces sur le verre. Gout légèrement torréfié, floral amertume franche, un peu agrumé, arrière-gout de houblons. Effervescence correcte, corps moyen. Bonne.

Robe blonde dorée très claire surmontée d’une mousse blanche épaisse qui persiste. Arômes de houblon floral. Saveurs de malt, de métal et de houblon floral et amérisant.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 18, 2007
[bottle] Hazy golden appearance with a tall, fluffy white head. Spicy aroma, kind of odd for an IPA. Malty flavors with a good dose of earthy hops. Finishes dry and somewhat sweet.

Quite drinkable. But nothing memorable. Aromas of oranges, grapegruits. Bottled.
