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.

Cette bière à 10% d’alcool vaut vraiment l’essai, même si son prix est plus élevé que la moyenne à Québec. Chapeau à cette microbrasserie qui est maintenant dans mes top 3 des microbrasseries du Québec : j’ai goûté quatre produits fort différents qu’ils proposent et aucune fois je n’ai été déçu. Couleur blond ambré, mousse épaisse et persistante ; j’adore. Parfum d’eau de rose, de cerises, de pamplemousses, de mandarines. Goût complexe, fruité, finale houblonnée très intéressante. D’ordinaire, j’aime plus ou moins les bières trop houblonnées et j’ai hésité à acheter cette IPA impériale. J’ai toutefois adoré la finale et elle est forte mais très bien balancée. J’ai savouré ce nectar dans un verre tulipe. Excellent produit! Cheers!

This is a stunning IPA from a great little brew pub in Gatineau. Most of the brewpubs in and around the Ottawa area offer up embarrassingly bad beers, but these guys have a few very good offerings that are now available in bottles at stores around the area. The beer itself has a wonderfully bright nose, with plenty or aromatic hops, citrus, some pine needle and a touch of sweetness. The colour is pretty typical of any IPA, with a nice deep golden hue and a beige head that dissipates slowly as you drink it. The taste is truly among some of the best IPAs I’ve ever had. At 10% it’s a very hefty beer even for an imperial, splitting the line somewhere between a DFH 90 minute and a DFH 120 minute. In that regard, the balance is almost perfect. The alcohol is very well integrated, and not really noticeable due to the crisp finish provided by the intense hops, and the excellent balance of sweetness. Mouthfeel is a little on the thick side, but it suits this beer perfectly. Anything with this much alcohol and hops needs a heavier feel to it, and this delivers without feeling overly sweet or sugary. Overall, this is one of my new favorites, and comes strongly recommended is you happen to be in the area. Strangely, I feel it tastes better from the bottle than it does served at the actual pub.

Lorsque l?on sent la biere nous avons une belle odeur de houblon. D?apparence ambre et opaque, cette biere a un excellent gout. Il faut vraiment l?essayer

Great beer. I had it at lunch. Pours a cloudy/opaque golden yellow with a big frothy head and great lacing. Aroma is citrus/grapfruit coming from a boatload of hops. Taste is a punch in the mouth of citrus/floral hop bitterness with a smoothness of wheat and hop. Reminded me of Pliny although it’s been awhile. I’ll be back.

This is a good IPA, probably one of the best. It’s a strong beer with great aroma.

750ml bottle shared by jsprime. pours hazed orange with a tan head. huge tropical fruit nose. great big hop flavour, not much malt backbone, highly drinkable. great IIPA from QC? who knew?

Liquide légèrement orangé, surmonté d’une mousse blanche à la belle dentelle. Au nez, agrumes (surtout les ananas en fait), pommes et sucre. Très fruitée en bouche, les sucres résiduels sont présents mais bien incorporés au mélange, au demeurant lui-même étonnamment bien balancé. C’est une double IPA surprenante, qui ne tombe pas dans le piège de la surenchère du sucre, qui emploie merveilleusement bien les houblons qui la composent.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy yellow-gold with an average size semi-lasting creamy white head. Awesome aroma, quite citrusy and resiny -- that’s about it but I love it! Flavour is also super resiny and citrusy along with some alcohol and a long bitter finish. Medium+ bodied. A fantastic IIPA!

draught at the brewery. copper with slight haze, nice head. hint of caramel malts, floral and citrusy, medium bodied, long finish. very nice hoppy profile. good hop-malt balance, hint of sweetness and warming (not overwhelming) alcohol. great brew!
