mathieuc (1280) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
Pours a clear a,ber with a medium offwhite head that leaves some lacing. Nose is a bit rough with hop oils and pine over a bed of sweet malt but it gets the job done. Some citrusy notes as well. Taste is moderately bitter, offers some caramel as well as some alcohol (strange for such a light brew) and citrusy hops. Body is pretty light but not too light, carbonation moderately high and bitterness lingers for a long while. Overall a fair IPA, the label is new to me so maybe they tweaked the recipe?

Johnsense (799) - - AUG 25, 2014
A step up from leiths. Hazy fold pour, good sized head. Only faint hopping in the aroma and taste, fairly sweet, not overly bitter. Easy drinking but uninteresting.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2045) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2014
Drunk from the bottle, sweet caramel & biscuity aroma with lots of pine. Med-full bodied with tons of biscuit, bitter pine and a clean crisp taste. One dimensional but nice.

ruigo (1091) - PORTUGAL - JUL 4, 2014
33cl bottle kindly from Beer City. Pours a pale brown colour with a thin white head. Aroma is pine, resin, caramel, grassy and slightly wood. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is more bitter than sweet but with strange notes of metallic and hoppy notes. Overall, a drinkable beer but a bit unbalanced and with odd flavours.

kaser (2689) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle in Montreal from store at condo red pour. White head. Eating spicy salsa with it so this could be off. Like a red ale. Bitter and malty. Not bad and expected better

RickTheRick (375) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
Une IPA qui n’est pas digne ce nom, cette interprétation présente un visuel ambré avec une mousse assez imposante qui dure. Un nez très sucré et caramélisé ne laisse aucune place ou presque au houblon. Pourtant, une amertume assez soutenue en bouche détonne au travers de tout ce malt caramélisé et ce sucre. Pour faire une histoire courte, c’est horrible.

wolffish (187) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Rien d’exceptionnel mais c’est une IPA très respectable. Ça fait quelques années qu’elle est là et elle est encore bonne ;-)

erickok (3533) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 1, 2014
Brown body, thin head. Vegetable, resin, woody hops, biscuit body, not so nice. Taste is odd, with a sharp yet not big bitterness and cheap malt feel. Not awesome. Don’t like the mouth feel at all. (33cl bottle from Beer City)
