COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pours with dark amber, burnt orange, copper colour and off-white, ecru-coloured foam. The aromatics are primarily citrus (grapefruit) with a subtle pine note. After the first scent, the malt aromatics come through – slight hint of toffee with some mild aromas of hay and straw. The body of the beer is roasted malts, dark toffee, a gentle molasses flavour and a touch of black licorice. The mouth feel is rounded and very dry. The finish is moderate-to-bold bitterness that lingers longer but is very pleasant. The finish is enveloping and builds with each sip.

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, - NOV 10, 2012
Bouteille 750ml. De couleur ambrée foncée et claire. Nez malté de caramel aux notes rôties, fruité (agrumes), de houblon herbeux aux notes citriques, résineuses et florales ainsi que des notes de noix. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement huileuse. Léger goût fruité (agrumes, faibles traces de mangues) accompagné d’une moyenne amertume de houblon légèrement floral et citrique (une amertume présente en arrière-goût toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel aux notes rôties, un léger goût de biscuits et des notes de toffee puis en finale l’amertume reprend légèrement de l’ampleur en se montrant plus herbeuse et très légèrement résineuse et des notes de noix asséchantes viennent fermer la marche. Post-goût moyen-long et aux notes sèches, moyennement amer de houblon herbeux aux notes citriques et très faiblement résineuses.

jamestulloch (3430) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 22, 2016
Can from Loblaws. Clear amber body with a thin white head. Low carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of dried orange peel and caramel. Flavour of light hops, metal and tonic water. Thin body with a watery mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Weak and inoffensive.

ChadPoole (284) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
Pours amber with a decent head that leaves some lacing. Nose is grapefruit and pine. Flavour is malts and a bit of citrus, but watered down. Had potential but didn’t deliver.

Kauge (1591) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 11, 2016
Can from LCBO. Dark amber. Caramelly and toffee-y overall character with resiny bitterness. A bit rough, not too well rounded. Not very keen on this.

UM02 (354) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 8, 2016
Fairly standard IPA. Good but not exceptional. Amber colour, decent amount of hoppy bitterness and traces of smoke in the malt. Highly drinkable but not unique.

UXO (1498) - CANADA - APR 4, 2016
Appearance: clear pale to medium amber with one fat finger of fluffy white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (3/5) Aroma: resiny pine, pithy grapefruit, pale malt, tropical fruit. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter finish. (3/5) Much better than their Crosswind Pale Ale. Actually a halfway decent example of an American IPA, with piney and citrusy hops leading the way over just enough pale malt to balance. Ends with a lingering resiny bitter finish. A little rough around the edges, perhaps, but a solid performer. (14/20)

steven_a (18) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2016 Amertume soutenue sur du caramel, du sucre d?orge, et des fruits mûrs. Même si je ne rachèterais pas nécessairement ce produit, c?est correct.
