Sampled from a growler. Nice aroma of fruity hops and malt. Pours a cloudy golden color with a thin white head. Good flavor of fruity hops with malt and a bitter finish. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and gentle carbonation.

Post-Mondial Tasting. Nice hoppy aroma, good malts also, opaque yellow/orange, a small custard head. Tastes kicks off with orange hops,malt does a fine job underpinning. Medium bodied, fabulously bitter, chewy, almost chunky. A fine example!

Growler. Pours a translucent gold body with a small white head. Smells of grapefruit sweetness, orange resin, and bread. Leafy orange hop flavour, soft biscuit malts...finishing with assertive lingering bitterness. Very drinkable.

Got to try this out of town brewpub beer thanks to goldorak who for once instead of being a big growler brought one home. Intensely citrusy aroma. Body is pleasantly light, well-malted but light. The malts are only slightly caramelized. The hopping is very nice. Lots of aromatic citrusy hops leading to a very flavourful bitterness of medium intensity. Everything about that beer screams high-drinkability. Refreshing thirst quencher session beer at its best.

On tap at the brewpub. I brought home a growler that wasn’t as good, but still held up very well

Dark blonde going on bronze with a great meringue that had little thick islands of head kind of like "iles flottantes". Nice cling too!
Very C-hop oriented aroma, pine and grapefruit mostly, but with a bit of roasted coffee in there to give it an interesting twist.
A solid IPA just the way I like them, with enough of a malty foundation to withstand the hop attack - I’d be curious to know the IBUs on this one. Finish is strangely both dry and sweet, sort of like when you eat cotton candy.
And to think Qc had no IPAs only a few years ago, we seem to be catching up really well!

Radek Kliber (6368) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 12, 2007
Appearance :Amber haze , golden light with good bright head.3+
Aroma:Rich, sticky sweet , malty base , fresh citric character a la sweet Alphonso Mangos
Flavour/Palate:- Bitter, raw green character shows up fast here , palate is self is chewy . Composition felt a bit rough, hops to aggressive with out efficient malt support. Easy , quick fix could make this ale quiet nice. One dimensional hop craze is spreading.

Quevillon (2448) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2007
Bu au Post-Mondial 07. Jaune dorée, moyen collet. Arome d’houblon agrume caramelisé. Goût d’houblon légé, peu amère avec quelque sensations de petits fruits.

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2007 Any first impressions?
-Discreet foam floats atop the clear copper-tinged blond.
-The floral, fruity hop nose is wisely rooted in biscuity cereals; a delightfully complex aroma which shows evocative restraint.
-Crunchy, biscuity malt is in love with the very floral hops, which almost recall rose water.
-Soft effervescence and healthy maltiness produce a highly drinkable, yet nourishing mouthfeel.

What if you dig deeper?
-Caramel sweetness increases the complexity of the biscuity malty character.
-Resinous hop bitterness and the malt return make a fine finish.
-Hops appear catty and orangey at times.
-That flavorful balance is something else!
-This is a beautifully delicate English IPA, made for long, tasty sessions.

On tap at the brewpub and from a growler.
