MXD (303) - 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.

Draft at Max’s. hazy amber color, fluffy white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of peach, apricot. Taste is very bitter peach and tropical fruit.

BeerandBlues2 (9358) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Tap at Max’s. Pours lightly hazy orange with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is citrus and pine hops, biscuit malt, pear and apple esters. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, pithy, supporting malt, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

blankboy (5948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2013
Draught at TdD Tap Takeover, Wvrst, May 26. Pours a murky copper-peach with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma is yeasty, fruity and hoppy along with some herbs. Fruity and yeasty flavour along with a good amount of hops and a big bitter finish. Medium bodied. Great stuff, I loved it.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2013
Tap at Wvrst. Hazy/muddy pour. Sticky white head. The aroma is quite fruity and a little bit herbal. Lightly citrusy and a touch spicy. Yeast is expressing with both fruity and spicy notes. Fairly hoppy but also fresh. A nice hoppy brew.

solidfunk (3586) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Decent. Clear orange pour with no head or lacing. Some citrus, malt and resin, but nothing in particular stands out here. Soft carbonation. Tap at volos.

Sammy (8354) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2013
On tap at Volo. Initially was getting significant yeast, and then the hops kicked in and it was OK for an IPA. Quaffable.

GuillaumeCL (343) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2013
Pours a pale yellow with a bit of white head. Smell is citrus and grass hops. Palate is on the lighter side of medium bodied with average carbonation. Taste is a bitter kick, then a slight bitter and sweet aftertaste. It’s ok, but missing some spice and lacking in bitterness.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2012
November 19, 2011 -500ml bottle at Volo. Pours hazy amber with a huge and lasting plug of off-white creamy/foamy head (4+). Smells funky (bretty?) - like a "wild" extremely dry tripel - floral, some alcohol, sweet fruity malt, and a hint of grassy/zesty "C" hop pungency. Taste follows, maybe a bit of brandy, intensely floral; a real hybrid, but more Belgian than west coast IPA (7+). Average body, sharply carbonated, a longish slightly sour funky/floral dry bitter finish. Really really good stuff.

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2012
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.

Bottle.
