COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cette bière rend hommage aux arômes puissants du houblon de la côte Ouest, cultivé à l’est de la chaîne de montagnes des Cascades. Nous en ajoutons plusieurs variétés à différentes étapes du brassage. Leurs arômes d’agrumes, accentués par le houblonnage à cru, viennent joyeusement égayer la rondeur des malts utilisés (pâle et Munich). //// This beer is a celebration of the mighty West Coast hop, grown east of the Cascade mountains. Multiple varieties are used in this ale, at several different points in the brewing process. With emphasis on late hop & dry hop additions, we serve up tropical fruit and citrus flavours & aromas on a bed of pale and Munich malt.

Sammy (8571) - Toronto, Ontario, - JUN 26, 2013
Bottle from Veux-Tu freshly picked and drank. A good tasting IPA, with lots of malt backbone holding back the 75 IBU impact until the last half of the bottle. Very good drinkability. Lots of head. Recommended.

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.

dreamflower (575) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
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.

Alexd8 (27) - Notre-Dame-de-la-Salette, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2014
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!

KansaiBeerLvrs (1951) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2014
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.

neuromatt (1140) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2014
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

mjakopa (217) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - AUG 11, 2014
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.

frankrafale (3) - - AUG 6, 2014 does not count
Apparence jaune tirant sur le doré. Odeur de résine, de fruits tropicaux et d'agrumes. Goût prononce de houblons, franchement rafraîchissant. Finale de gazon vert et d'agrumes. Wow, j'adore a toute les fois ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maximet (53) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 6, 2014
Hazy light orange with fading white head. Strong citrus smell, mainly grapefruit with resin/herbs hops and some cereal to balance it. Taste is very bitter, not much of sweetness. Medium body with a lively carbonation, long dry, bitter finish. A great one from this brewery.

flip_soeperman (588) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2014
Really well made IPA. Pale golden colour with nice white head. Medium bodied, good pleasant carbonation, lasting bitterness. Something to really keep enjoying one after another. Only thing is that the aroma fades away quickly, starts out tropical, but quickly turns into a good clean yeast character with some honey in the back.

660 mL bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a substantial head that lasts. Aroma of grapefruit. Bitterness on the tongue with fruit and a bit of pepper. Lots of flavour on the tongue. Long bitter and pleasant finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
