COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Creamy, foamy, fresh hoppy aromas, citrus, pepper and evergreen notes. Velvety caramel smooth mouthful, straight as an arrow… Don’t count on its bitterness to behave; palate invasion is its modus operandi!

JesseM (1155) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2010 On tap at the brewpub. Taps a nice dark mahogany with a small beige head. The aroma is awesome, very American reminiscent in character, good piney cascade presence with some toffee malt backing it up. Flavour is much the same with some amazing balance. Delicious caramalt flavour with loads of bitter hop backing. Mouth-feel is perfectly prickly yet still slides down way too easily. I could drink boatloads of this stuff. Respectable rendition of an American IPA. If only this kind of IPA could be made readily available in Ontario...

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2010
In short: A tasty and highly drinkable resinous and caramelized IPA.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Partly cloudy dark golden body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is strong and very hoppy with a hop signature that feels resinous, leafy and fruity. Body is full and nourishing but the remains highly sessionnable. Taste has a good rich caramel and a whole lot of bittering hops that are very resinous, slightly citrusy and tiny bit pine-tree. Straightforward and very effective example of the style. Hull Quebec is now another good place to get your North-American hop fix. Isn’t it annoying when people act like USA is not the only country in the world eh?

Eructoblaster (3296) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Dark amber body with a thin off-white creamy head. Nice, complex malty/hoppy aroma with spruce, grapefruit, and pineapple hints. Sharp hoppy taste that carries fruity and subtle woody notes. Ends with a long, robust bitter finish. Very good IPA.

LadySusan (721) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2010
On tap at Brasseurs du Temps. First the color is amber with a thick beige head and lace. The aroma is very hoppy and bitter. The taste is what an I.P.A. should taste like, hops and more hops the bitterness of citrus fruits along with some sweetness.as for the aftertaste it is good and long lasting.

blankboy (6450) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep golden-orange with a small diminishing creamy white head. Nice aroma, it’s hoppy but also unique, along with lots of leafy hops there’s some sweet fruit, pepper, caramel malt and a hint of alcohol. Delicious flavour: Dry, slightly spicy hops along with some fruit, caramel malt and with a big bitter finish. Average bodied. Very good!

jercraigs (8334) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2009
2009-11-17. Crisp orange amber body with a modest foamy beige head. 3+ Aroma is interesting, leafy hops, notes of herbaceous vegetation. 6+ Flavour is similar with strong vegetation notes to the hops that vary between nice and a bit off putting Pleasant bitterness, odd fruity character. I have tasted something quite similar but can not recall where. Mild resin. Touch of pepper?? No citrus to speak of. Malts are supportive. 6+ Average palate suits it. Perplexing. (Edit - this does not seem much like the beer previous raters describe which is disappointing. Different batch? Old? Who knows) On tap at the brewpub

HogTownHarry (6200) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2009
Draught. At the brewpub. Clear amber-copper with a solid creamy lasting beige head (4-). Dry and leafy aroma, medium roast cereal grain and plenty of bitterness, mostly a slightly funky/floral variety - no alcohol presence at all. Incredibly dry flavour, slightly burnt oily grain, but mostly burnt-bitter leafiness, and man does it last a long time - long, long finish to this one. Average body, very astringent, quite intense on the palate - very solid, but the scorched character wears on the palate a bit after a while - still a solid brew.

Quevillon (2616) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2009
At the brewpub on tap (12 oz), the first of November 2009. Honey red, good head. Resinous and bitter hop aroma, notes of spicy berries. Delicious taste of hops, notes of peaches, good bitterness caressing that is my palate. An IPA of high class!
