MXD (304) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, - NOV 19, 2011
Hummm... 500 ml bottle, from Peluso. Pours copper, slightly hazy, really small whitehead. Aroma is a bit of everything that comes from hops with a some honey and caramel, taste is surprisingly smooth and subtile, with lots of tropical fruits (mango and pineapple, big time) , and is extremely well balanced. Well done.

Excellente ipa! Pas trop intense comme 1ère, mais tres goûteuse néanmoins !

Whatup14 (888) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 22, 2015
En fût au Saint-Bock. Couleur orangée voilée, faible mousse beige. Arôme de houblon floral, agrumes, orange amère. Goût de malt, houblon résineux, amertume moyenne-faible. Carbonatation moyenne-faible, corps moyen.

Spab (2677) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2015
On tap at Volo. Pours a lightly cloudy golden orange colour with large whiteish head with solid retention. Aroma has some bright fruitiness, white pepper sort of spice, yeast and wheat. Taste is cracker, apple/pear, citrus and peppery spice. Dry finish. Unusual IPA but nice.

fiulijn (15750) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 15, 2015
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy golden color with creamy head. Nice aroma, fruity, some sweet oranges, mango, tropical fruit, candies. Surprisingly, there is almost no malt flavor, bit there are traces of chemicals. Strong bitterness, but dubious hop qualities; some gasoline in the final.
Weird; maybe the keg is off.

mcberko (8040) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2015
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out piney hops, some citrus zest, and crackery malt. Flavour brings out tangy citrus hops upfront, with some piney, and a crispy biscuity malt backbone. Well-balanced, with a lovely tanginess that shines. Very good.

Ferris (6562) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2015
Draft - Light toast and malts and some peppery sweetness. Clear copper with a decent beige head. Perfume, malts and some spice. Very perfumy, lightly herbal and sweet. Odd for sure.

Franckg (249) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2015 En growler, fraiche de 48h. Effectivement très amère. Surtout orienté vers le pamplemousse et le citron. Un peu herbacée. Très sèche sur le palais et amertume tenace. Correcte mais ne réinvente pas le style.

Stoned99 (321) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
Half growler (946ml) filled less than 48h ago and bought at the TDD shop. Aroma: Citrus, exotic fruits, floral, spices, tobacco. App: hazy peaches color with small white head. Taste and palate: Medium body, average + carbonation, lots of spices in mouth, bitter finish. Overall: Didn’t like that much the spices/tobacco aroma. I did enjoy the bitter finish though. Much more complex than traditional IPA’s.

dandeman (598) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2014
En fût à la brasserie Etoh. Du houblon résineux au nez. Dorée, orangée, légèrement floue, belle mousse dense. L’attaque est houblonnée avec beaucoup de fruit de la passion et des agrumes. Des notes d’alcool accompagnées de houblons herbacés et résineux. Un peu trop présent l’alcool. Il vient débalancer l’équilibre fruit et amertume. Bonne IPA sans plus.

rederic (3188) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2014
On tap at E+OH, amber-orange color, with a fluffy beige head, with a nice mild floral piney, leafy, citrus hoppy nose, with a hint of bubblegum yeast, and a faint pale, toasted, caramel note, with a subtle peppery, lemon marmalade accent in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate, with a good flowery citrus, leafy, grassy, piney hoppy character, with some zesty, spritzy, lemon, grapefruit rind, faint peppery, pine bark, cedar, tobacco leaf flavours, leading towards a faint toasted, pale, biscuity maltiness, à good lingering leafy, grassy, piney, citrus hop bitterness finish.
