Draught at Mondial de la Bière 2012, June 9. First beer of my 3rd day at Mondial. Pours a deep copper with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma smells great, lots of fruity hops, resiny as well, along with malt, fruit and some herbal notes. Fruity and resiny flavour, nice and bitter, almost DIPA-level bitterness. Average to medium bodied. Great stuff!

In short: A rich fruity and lightly piney amber IPA. Straighforward and tasty. Enjoyable
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy blond-orange body topped by a small off-white head
In long: The hoppy nose is very citrusy, a bit resinous, a bit piney and some caramel. Taste has a solid malt structure, moderately caramelized. The beer has a rich heavy fruity flavor like condensed peaches, condensed apricots and even some bananas. Some piney notes. The bitterness is of medium intensity and it is rather sticky/resinous. Also something reminiscent of pine sap. I’m not familiar with the Falconer hops but nothing stroke me as out of the ordinary with this IPA. This is a well-made solid and nourishing IPA. Is that me or does everybody who works at leftist artsy Cheval Blanc look like they were just kicked out of the Smashing Pumpkins?

mabel (8537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2012
[4495-20120609] Tap. Light mango fruity pineapple grains aroma. Hazy, brown amber body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head and some lacing. Grainy bitter citrus-base hops flavour has a bit of a tangy pineapple finish. Medium-full body is quite bitter. Would not have been surprised if this was a DIPA because it packs such a nice bitter punch. (7/3/7+/4/15) 3.6

Comment: Une pinte au Cheval Blanc.
Description: Cette IPA est orangé avec une mousse off-white compacte et crémeuse. Le nez est agréable avec un heureux mélange d’agrumes et d’herbe. La bouche est herbeuse avec une bonne base maltée. Il y a une forte amertume en fin de bouche. Les 75 IBU font effets.

Golden amber with a creamy thick beige head lasting. Intense piney-citrus nose with a suggestion of alcohol. Bitter bite at first, quite straightforward, developing into a grapefruity palate, medium carbonation, very smooth, with a lingering piney and citrus finish. Delicious IPA.
