[5464-20130601] Cask. Buttery citrus tangerine aroma. Slightly hazy, orange body with a quick foamy off-white head. More sweaty buttery orange in the flavour with a pleasant bitter aftertaste. Medium body is quite bitter. Lovely. (8/3/8/4/16) 3.9

Pours golden with thick, dense, white head. Strong aroma of pine and citrus. Tastes of the same, perhaps with a slight lemoniness. Oily mouthfeel with peppery aftertaste that ends up tasting throughout. A bit too peppery.

Thanks chad! This is so good. Pours light yellow with big marshmallow head. Aromas are great tropical fruit and citrus. Flavors are similar with a nice hoppy bite at the end. Beautiful.

Rating 2200. Thanks Tommy for this one! Glad I finally got a chance to try this. In some ways it reminds me a bit of the Toppling Goliath pseudoSue, but without the melon element. Body is beautiful golden yellow with lasting white foamy head and nice lacing - more or less perfect appearance-wise. Vibrant citrus aroma, a touch of resin and vanilla. Taste is initially quite a nice grapefruit with a strong aftertaste of bitterness, though it comes and goes. Very nice IPA from Quebec.

Bottle shared with northropfrye. It’s the colour of sunshine with a light meringue-y head. It has the most intense bitter grapefruit taste I’ve yet experienced in an IPA. It’s bracing and would be great for a hut sunny patio.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Jaune doré, reflets verts. Mousse fine. Arôme puissant de sapinage, de sève et d’aiguilles de pins. Superbes odeurs herbacées. Citron, zeste de citron, orange amère er pamplemousse se rajoute au tout. Attaque franche et corsé, finale sèche et croquante. Une pure IPA comme on s’ y attend. Une autre SVP!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from La Fromagerie Atwater. A big glowing copper pour with a thick off-white head of foam. Quite a huge aroma, pine, nutty, pine needles, fresh, peach, apricots - juicy. It is medium-full bodied with a roundish carbonation that is just a bit rough. A well balanced flavor profile bitter, biscuit, pine then mellowing into fruitiness that matches the aroma. A really pleasant finish + aftertaste. A wonderfully satisfying IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle courtesy of Chris, served in a stem glass. Pours hazy golden-straw with a large off-white head that remains and laces well. The nose has big citrus, pine and grapefruit, along with pale malts and a touch of tropical fruit. The flavour is fairly sweet with huge lemon, grapefruit peel and tropical fruit. There is a slightly spicy, herbal hop quality that builds through the middle and lingers into the finish, which is medium long and moderately bitter. On the palate it is light-medium in body with a slightly dry texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a nice light IPA with a refreshing citrus character. 2014-08-16

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a brighter hazy yellow with quite a bit of head, creamy like and medium retention. Aroma is exotic fruits, some sweetness, but mainly citrus and hops. Taste is a bit dryer with some bitterness attached, and quite a bit of citrus and hops. Aftertaste is soft and grassy finish. A well balanced, unobtrusive, drinkable IPA.
