VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
750 ml bottle. Had with a homemade spicy pizza. Pours a foggy orange-golden amber with a persistent white head. Smells of lemon and lime. Tastes of sweet citrus, oranges, lemon and lime. Very strong, persistent and sharo citrus bitterness. Medium to full bodied, frothy mouthfeel. Excellent bitter pale ale, went along great with my pizza.

Bottle, shared with my brother-in-law. Deep burnt-orange colour, hazy, with a lively tan finely bubbled head. Aroma is, broadly speaking, floral and spicy. More specifically, there are notes suggestive of rosehips, strawberry, ginger, and burnt sugar. Flavour is sweet, with fruity caramel driving the palate, and soft floral and spicy elements adding complexity. Some fruit in here too, but definitely not citrus in my mind.... really tough for me to pin this one down. Fairly low bitterness. Amazingly complex, but not something I would categorize as an APA-- I don’t care what you call it, I loved it.

Out of a 750ml corked bottle - similar stuff but the taste has a Belgian yeasty flavour to it - this is excellent and stands above many other good apa’s

Draft at Brasseurs du temps back in May.
Good pour, super fresh, ample solid off white cap, slippery ropy lacing, crystal clear deep amber beer. Good floral bouquet, lots of deep citrus aroma, orange, sweet ruby red grapefruit, cherry, good blended malt (what malts, I’m not sure), aromatic and quite potent. Interesting sourness, seems to be linked strongly with the fresh unsweetened grapefruit. Lacks flavour, overall disappointing after the impressive aroma. Weak candy, dulling hops, pine. Drying, slightly tart, good soft carbonation, long dry mild bitter finish.

Golden/orange/copper body. Nice thick head with good lace. Tastes very true to the style with a firm bitter hop profile to it and a crisp malt backing. I was afraid it would taste too sour and Belgian-like but instead I was very pleasantly surprised by this brew.

Metalchopz (2208) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2013
Bottle from Marché Omni with a production date of 01/2013. Pours a hazy amber colour with a creamy-foamy light beige cap, great retention and lots of soapy spotted lace. Also written on front label "amber ale", under "Pale Ale Américaine". Beautiful fruity nose with some plums, raisins, and nuts. Quite malty with good quality malts. Slick and smooth, nice mouthfeel. The taste is good balance between the hoppy dryness and some roasted and caramel malts. This is quite a well-blended amber beer, à-la-American Pale Ale.

cfrancis (2259) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2009
I got really into this beer. Aroma is glorious hop and caramel. Taste is well balanced with good hop bitterness and caramel and malt. Amber brown in colour. I really enjoyed this beer. I’ll definitely pick it up at the dep again.

UM02 (302) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2011
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.

Gethinbeer (2118) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 16, 2012
Clear copper colour with a decent frothy white head and lace. Hop, malt flavour with hints of fruit and grapefruit. Tangy hop citrus finish. Herb and spice notes lingering afterwards.

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2012
Pours deep orange, slightly hazed with a generous white foamy cap. The nose is simple, but enjoyable. Fresh floral hops and bready malts with apple and cookie dough. The taste is decidedly fresh green hops, nice caramel and bready malts balance the floral bitterness. Finishes bitter, with a long lived lingering aftertaste of hops and bread crust. Simple, but well made and enjoyable.
