Sous un timide col beige, une belle bière acajou limpide. Col frêle. Des arômes d’herbe, de caoutchouc, mais aussi de grenier poussiéreux. Onctueuse à effervescence moyenne avec une fin relativement amère.

Very nice american pale ale, hoppy enough to be an IPA but very well balanced. Maybe not a beer for hopheads but still more satisfying than a lot of IPAs. A decent bodied malt with a very pleasant hop bitterness that maintains a nice balance between malt and hops.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Has a very nice big bright beige head and clear amber-gold body. Aroma is a soft hint of hops and little more. Flavour is a nice half-half mix of malt and hops; mouthfeel is a little weak though. Still, it’s all right, but not spectacular.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Vice et Versa in Montreal. Pours a good medium gold with sticky white head. Aroma is hoppy, bready malts with mild sweetness. Taste has an aggressive almost English style hopping but not lacking in bite. It is like a hybrid of an Brit IPA and an American Pale. Decent but not stunning.

... A "got deleted" rating...
In a few words... Nose is hops paradise with some roast and leather, taste is c-hops-free but hoppy otherwise with a hint of caramel and nuts, that beer is overcarbonated. This sounds like the "miss" of Les Trois Mousquetaires. Which means it’s still a pretty good brew.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
TAP - nice coppery coat, fine off white head. Fine fresh lightly sweet aromas, taste nice blend of Amer style hops. Pretty fat palate but not syrupy, loads of apricot and orange and pale malt taste.
