COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For the hop lover in you, this 100 IBU beer uses Columbus and Amarillo hops which exude explosive aromas of citrus, cherry, oak and rose water. Sweetness mingles with alcohol and hops in a lenghty aftertaste.

probstblueribbon (3323) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2012
750 mil bottle from brewery, bottled 11/08/31#1038, cool, tulip, shared with brother. Hazy orange amber with a so so off white head. Lots of citrus and resin, berry notes, slightly woodsy, bitter green herbs, Saison funkiness (odd), a little sweet maltiness, not as expected. Medium+ body, vivicious effervescence. Strong Saison funk with bitter green herbs, sweet, fruity malts, big citrus peel, not at all what I expected; sweet with good bitterness, booze, and a long fruity, funky finish. Devilish indeed.

HogTownHarry (6267) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2012
December 6, 2012 - on draught at Les Brasseurs du Temps. Reasonably hazy amber-gold with an average but lasting thick creamy off-white head. Aroma - a bit boozy, lemon and tangerine zest, quite sharp (8-). Taste is quite strong - a nice solid fruit-sweet malty backbone to frame strong citrus light pine bitterness and quite a bit of alcohol - very ear-warming. A bit boozy, strongly bitter, solid carbonation, some astrinency, dry grapefruit pith finish, a little sweet in the aftertaste.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Glass, poured at La Saint-Bock - Montreal, QC. Strong, grassy lupulin and pot aroma. It really puts forth a grassy essence, as does the flavor. Dry, tropical hops are paired with grating, broken chlorophyll tones. This is a little coarse and brusk, focusing on the bitterness and less on the dankness of hop flavors. T’wasn’t unpalatable though and made for a nice, hoppy introduction to a warm Montreal evening.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2012
Superbe bière trouble, couleur de miel et coiffée d’un épais col crème marquant le verre d’une opulente dentelle. Des arômes fruités de caramel, puis la chaleur de l’alcool avec un agréable passage floral. Solidement amère, sans trop de sucre résiduel. De corps solide, crémeuse elle est moyennement effervescente. Elle se termine sur une longue fin amère et doucement aromatique.

Minderbinder (2612) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle 750ml. Pours hazy/murky golden. Minimal head. Aroma is of citrus, acidity. Taste is of citrus, weird malt, alcohol. Overall: Maybe I have to re-rate in the future, but for now I would say this beer tastes weird, which is no compliment.

GuillaumeCL (344) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2012
750mL bottle from the brewery. Pours a hazy reddish copper colour with some thick white head that dissipates slowly. Smell is sweet, but clearly balanced with some hoppy goodness, lots of citrus and something a little floral. Palate is fairly thick and a bit oily, slightly lighter than average carbonation. Taste is initially a bit sweet, but then the bitter hops roll in and just lingers for a long while. A bit of a warming alcohol sensation in the throat. Excellent for summer, but I’d drink it year-round.

Bottle thanks to Craig. Pours a mostly clear dark copper color with a medium white head. A rich caramel and green hop nose. A nice flavor of very sweet hops, candy, light caramel, lingering bitterness. Perfume.

750ml bottle thanks to Craig. The aroma shows signs of alcohol and oxidization. Great hop aromas. The flavor is fantastic, citrusy, floral, resin, caramel. A solid imperial IPA.
