rosenbergh (6472) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2011
Draught at Vices & Versa, Montréal, QC. As L’Alchimiste India Extra Pale Ale.
Clear pale golden colour with small white head. Dry fruity aroma with some sweetness. Quite mild though. Mildish bitter hoppy flavour. Bitterness fades quickly. Easy for an IPA.

GarnotingPete (771) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2011
Bière limpide couleur d’acajou coiffée d’un fin col beige laissant une respectable dentelle au verre. Des arômes typiques de caramel et de résine. Une amerturme intense, certe, mais plutôt unidimentionnelle. Au palais, une texture lisse, une effervescence moyenne avec une très longue fin amère.

czar (4100) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2011
pours clear copper with a decent white head. caramel malts, floral, citrusy hops, decent malts. just not so complex but a fairly decent brew sticking to the style.

cfrancis (2247) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2010
Pours a reddish auburn with a limited white cap. Aroma is light grain and a nice earthy hop. Taste is earthy, smooth malt and a light hop. Easy drinking but a tad boring.

drougkolya (276) - Otterburn Park, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2010
Bière IPA de 5.5%, légère, bien malté et peu houblonné, mousseuse, belle couleur rousse cuivré.

Metalchopz (2197) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2010
Originally rated December 2005. Last of the four IPA’s I was testing tonight. Purchased at Dépanneur de la Rive in Cap-Rouge, Quebec. Pours a clean amber colour with a crazy big creamy fat head. Retention is extremely long and foamy, so is lacing. Close to the Bièropholie Cascade in appearance. The nose is pretty hoppy, with some notes of green apples. Some wax is felt in the mouth. Smooth bitterness, quite mild actually. Not a bad brew, but prefer the Bièropholie IPA’s much better.

JesseM (1145) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2010
341mL bottle from Trappe Fromage. Pours a dark amber, hazy with a tiny beige head. Aroma is really nice, very good piney hop character with mild toffee malts. Flavour doesn’t disappoint with the same mild mannered malt character outdone by some tasty, prickly hop presence. Can’t put my finger on the variety, but they seem to have made a legitimate IPA here, not something just labelled as one. Like Sgt. Major’s, with a richer malt profile and prominent hop presence. Seems to vanish quickly after being poured, I wish I’d got a sixer of this. This brewery has really impressed me so far.

MXD (303) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2010
From a grocery store in St-Jean. Pours amber, Quite a thick beige head. Fruity aroma (peaches (malt?), citrus (hops), with some bread. Really, really pronounced caramel taste. Hops are nothing special. Aftertase is interesting. Good, "simple" IPA - starter’s material?

sseb69 (1474) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 20, 2010
UPDATED: APR 9, 2012 Bouteille 341 ml. 5.5%. Couleur ORANGE, bonne effervescence, mousse blanche-beige mince. Assez mince, saveur de caramel brulé et houblon. Amertume présente mais pas accaparente. Bonne mais pas vraiment amère pour une IPA

DuffMan (6436) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2010
Bottle. Beautiful orange amber, robust golden head. Peachy toffee aroma. Sweet toffee malts, crisp hop bite, bitter finish. Solid.
