Boutip (5588) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2013
Bottle: Poured a hazy bright amber color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of citrus and resinous hops with pretty dominant with some dry caramel malt notes also perceptible. Taste is a mix between some citrus hops with nice floral touch and some resinous and slightly earthy hops with some dry caramel malt wand light residuals sugar notes. Body is slightly fuller then average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed and a beer I would seek again.

Pours a hazy copper with a white head. Aroma is malty and hoppy with a fruity smell I do not recognize. Seems close to grapefruit. The taste is similar with sour, bitter and sweet notes.

Frothmeister (695) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy rosy/amber with a light beige head, and some visible sediment floating. Nose is big resinous hops, caramel, alcohol, and some nice tropical fruit notes. Mmm. Taste is a pretty good balance of resinous notes, and tropical fruit notes adding some bitterness to a beer that might be a little too sweet. It’s tasty stuff, if maybe a little too sweet, but it’s a minor complaint. This is one damn good brewery.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - MAR 2, 2013
0.5L bottle. Orange pour, thick creamy off-white head. Aroma of hops. Floral aroma covers up the heavy scent of biscuit malt. Herbal hop essence coats the tongue. Flavors carry a tropical fruit character; pineapple, grapefruit, orange zest. Perfect balance, hearty body but not heavy, smooth flavors. Loads of citrus rind bitterness carries through the end of the palate. Soft and easy to drink. (3627)
