lesifflebiere (1493) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2015
Bière blonde et peu carbonatée à l’apparence toute innocente, limpide et mince, aux houblons fruités intenses en nez. La bouche est savoureuse mais peu amère, surtout fruitée avec un peu de conifères, et sa buvabilité est agréablement haute. Notes de caramel, peut-être de diacétyl, du côté des malts. Une IPA anglaise classique, savoureuse et agréable mais dont la réputation semble un peu surfaite.

Milton LCBO Outlet #1 (Milton, Ontario, Canada)

The beer pours a translucent metallic gold colour with a thin creamy white head that lingers. The aroma is caramel, tropical fruit, grass, and yeast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is citrus, topical fruit, caramel, and fresh bread. Quite good.

mcberko (9752) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2015
500mL bottle, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Nose brings out biscuity malt, some citrus hops, and a little pine -- but not really that dank, cat piss quality one usually gets from citra. Flavour is more characteristic of the hop, with dank citrus hops upfront, with a little pine and resin, and biscuity malt to back. Dry, crisp and really well-balanced, with a little citrus tang on the finish. Excellent IPA.
