My Bottom Line :
This quenching India Pale Ale presents plenty of citrus fruit and peaches in a dry and stylish mouthfeel.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam mounts the misty blond-amber.
-Malts offer light honey and crisp cereals.
-Hop bitterness is resinous and peppery.
-Carbonation appears higher than usual because residual sugars are lower than average for the style.

2012-06-02. Crisp amber body with a nice foamy beige head. 3+ Interesting flavour, modest hops and bitterness, odd flavour from the hops, sort of citrusy and sort of a floral character, very light resin and leafy touches, the melange of all of these makes for an interesting combination. Bitterness grows pleasantly throughout the glass. 7+ Smooth average plus bodied palate. Modest hop aroma, light leafy touches, floral whispers. 7+ Not entirely sure what to make of it, the hop profile is different from what I expected but I am glad we opted for a full bottle as it finished off our session at Wvrst rather nicely. Bottle at Wvrst, Toronto

hazy amber/orange colour. hoppy aroma :pinecones and citrus but i do get some nutmeg or something else in this brew as well. Hoppy flavour with a bitter leafy note. Although this is a good beer they are better with their belgian styled beers.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium, thick cream-coloured head over slightly hazed foxy-orange to red-amber beer. Strangely enough, the caramel comes out first, the citrussy hops coming behind rather hesitantly. Somehow, bit gassy smell. Very bitter, rather indifferent bitterness with some citrussy compontents. Finish, however, with harsh, metallic to medicinal flavours. Caramel is overwhelmed in the taste. Hopresin content gives a wry, dry-out effect. Warming up, rosewater enters as the only sweeter flavour. Medium bodied, quite slick. Aftertaste, certainly after some warming, yields (running) cheesy hopflavours. Despite the above, somewhat negative comments, the beer remains fairly drinkable and certainly far from unpleasant. J’aime le nom - bien trouvé!

500ml bottle. Copper pour with red highlights and an off-white head. Pineapple on the nose with some yeast and oranges. Lots of hops on the palate with pineapple, pine tips. The only beer from these guys where the yeast isn’t obvious. Quite bitter.

Bouteil de 500 Ml brassé en Février 2012. Les aromes dégagent un nez d’agrume très prononcé. En bouche, le malt apparaît et laisse place à une explosion d’agrume; le pamplemousse prend rapidement le dessu. La Final longue et amère rappelant le zest et le pamplemousse qui persiste et s’estompe lentement jusqu’à la prochaine gorgé. Une bière idéale pour les amateurs de vraie IPA.
