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!

HogTownHarry (6042) - 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.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 10, 2013
Dégustée en fût au Brouhaha. De couleur cuivrée-dorée foncée et voilée. Nez de houblon herbeux (herbes fraîches, notes de thé), légèrement citrique aux notes florales et résineuses , fruitées (agrumes, notes de pêches), de grains de malt sucrés avec des traces de pain et de caramel. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture aux notes huileuses et résineuses. Goût moyen-amer de houblon herbeux et légèrement citrique (une amertune présente toute la gorgée) avec un goût fruité (agrumes, notes de pêches et d’abricots) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un moyen goût de grains de malt sucrés, léger de caramel avec des notes de pain puis en finale l’amertume de houblon prend un tournant plus herbeux, légèrement résineux et asséchant. Post-goût moyen-long et légèrement asséchant, moyennement amer de houblon herbeux aux notes citriques et résineuses avec un goût fruité (zeste d’agrumes). (7 janvier 2013)

Une ipa croustillante habitée par des houblons coniféreux principalement, franche amertume, facile à boire.

This was a solid IPA. It had a good citrus hop aroma as well as an intriguing peachiness. This persisted in the taste and was very pleasant. Bitterness was average for an IPA but the peachiness really complemented it. Dry bitter finish. above average

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2009
My Bottom Line:
Coniferous and leafy hops grace this personable India Pale Ale, as caramelized and toasted grain balance everything out. This is very flavorful and accessible, straddling English and American stylings.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam protects the amber-tinged copper.
-The hops are also citrusy at times, ending up in a levelled resinous bitterness.
-Malts are superbly extracted here, as they are in all of their beers.
-The mouthfeel is nourishing yet quaffable, and moreover superbly polished. This reminds me of Siboire brews (to name another highly professional Québécois brewpub).

On tap at the brewpub.

Some tangerine citrus on head. Pours clear reddish orange with good head and lacing. Finishes with good bitterness. Soft carbonation. Nice palate. Tap at brewpub.
