3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky light brown with a thick bubbly head. Aroma is all grassy hops. Somehow I taste chocolate, with a fair bit of pepper. Nice flavour. A bit of sweetness, not as completely balanced by the hops as I might expect in an Imperial IPA. Nice medium-to-full body, rich-tasting and round on the palate. Nice, but not quite worth the price I paid.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Liquide ambré d’apparence trouble, couronné d’une mousse beige persistante, dessinant de beaux motifs de dentelle aux parois du verre. Des arômes assez forts d’agrumes, d’ananas, de cerise et de houblon valsent jusqu’au nez. En bouche, l’amertume, bien collante, tient le haut du pavé. Une texture huileuse et des vapeurs d’alcool tapent au palais. Cette bière nous réchauffe bien. (167-280112)

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Red amber with a large creamy white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, resin, and caramel. Medium body with soft carbonation. Taste fruit cake with a soft but lasting bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fut @ Broue Pub Brouhaha. Blonde ambree. Nez de resine et une pointe savonneuse. En bouche: malt, conifere et encore un cote savonneux... L’alcool ne se ressent pas. J’aurais voulu plus d’amertume.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased at my local Métro store (among others from this brewery available - all at once). Pours a cloudy golden-amber colour with a soapy off-white head that has great retention and lacing. The nose is really nice with fresh hop, that is not overpowering, with hints of caramel hidden behind. Real smooth mouthfeel with no burning at all, and almost no warming. Not as bitter as one would think (judging from the scent) but a nice little dry mouth with hop and some mild sugars appear in the aftertaste to balance everything. Almost like mild maple syrup lingering. Quite a nice Imperial IPA that is really too easy to drink.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. Cloudy orange pour with a thin light tan head. Aroma is grassy, citrus, lots of pine resin. Some caramel sneaking in there too. Flavor is bitter, slightly sweet, pine resin, a bit hot on the back end. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bonne arôme de pin et d’agrumes mais rien d’assez aiguisé. S’améliore en se réchauffant mais manque de punch. Trop onctueuse, pas assez croustillante. Ce n’est pas la fameuse DIPA Québécoise qu’on m’avait promis.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany!), pours a murky dark orange with a small off-white head. The nose is moderately hoppy, with some tangy fruits and feint caramel malts. Flavour is sweet and tangy - honey coated tangy fruits on top, with low-to-medium hoppy notes to follow balanced by some caramel malts - tangy, honey-like finish. Not so assertively hoppy for a IIPA, but a medium bitter finish. Solid.

Alcohol, full body, sugar, fruity that all mix up pretty well. Bubblegum, the fruity aroma of that beer could be refined. A little soapy. I like that one cause she’s dirty! F*** yeah!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to hoppypocket for this extra.
Poured from a 750ml. bottle, bottled Aug. 31 2011.
Appearance: A very creamy head, 3-4 fingers strong with long lasting power. Body is a gorgeous hazy orange.
Smell: Reserved at first but really opens up as it warms. Hops, grapefruit, orange pulp, a bit of oak and a mix of sweet & bitter.
Taste: Spicy, citrus, burnt sugar. A bit sweet actually which overpowers the bitterness. Mellows as it warms. Aftertaste of grapefruit rind is nice.
Mouthfeel: Low on the bitterness, surprisingly smooth and very well balanced.
Overall: The alcohol is not felt at all. A nice mesh of sweetness and spices. Would have liked more lasting bitterness but i was still pleased with this one.
