Tricker (260) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2011
Bière de 8.5 % d’alcool. Double IPA. Amère soit, mais très bonne froide. Léger goût d’épices en arrière plan, et un goût de lime et/ou d’agrumes, mais rafraîchissante.

GarnotingPete (740) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2011
Bière trouble de couleur acajou sous un fin col beige laissant une timide dentelle au verre. Des arômes lactés intéressants de caramel et de cuir. Relativement amère. Bière onctueuse à l’effervescence tranquile laissant une longue fin amère en bouche.

First sniff is unwelcoming, for an IPA. Bland, uncharacteristic, malty. One sip and BAM! Malty sweetness and nice mouthfeel. Hops keep their place but they’re not overwhelming. Keeps on going.... Great beer.

DerWeg (1431) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2011
Pours a reddy coat with an ample loose head that settles to a frothy white ring. Smells of citrus and just a souçon of cat pee and some hay. Taste is spicy hop - peppery actually, reminding me slightly of chile pepper or even a faint hint of habañero... really odd, but there is also the citrus to the hop, which nicely complements the caramel-but-not-unctuous malt base. Some mouth-smacking mineral and hints of pine forest. OK the peppery thing subsides, it is pretty good. Bottle thanks to Au Coin Duluth.

egajdzis (5196) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of heavy oxidation, citrus, grass, cardboard, toffee, and light pine. Taste of citrus, grass, stale malts, light caramel. Probably a bit old.

Purchased at JA Moisan in Quebec City. Cost me $5.59 for 500mL, worth it to try the beer but wouldn’t buy it again at that price. AROMA: caramel, spruce APPEARANCE: hazy dark red with frothy white head TASTE: relatively sweet for an IPA, lightly bitter finish PALATE: medium body, creamy, average carbonation OVERALL : Good

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle courtesy of JoeMcPhee: Thanks Joe! Pours a hazy amber with a strong tan head. Odd sour dough and mildly solventy aroma. Some caramel and mild diacetyl. Slick body. Some nice toasted caramel and crystal malt flavors. The hops are dank and mildly hempy. Could be cleaner. Nothing great.

RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2010
Doesn’t taste particularly refined, but for a beer that’s twice as hoppy and twice as alcoholic as the norm that’s acceptable. Strong and powerful, very floral and hoppy. Complex, though not particularly smooth about it. I enjoyed this one, and it’s a shame it’s so hard to get - I’d like to have it again to further figure it out.

Bottle. Aroma is pine, grass, and light malt. Not bitter at all in my opinion, just a rather bland sweetness with a drying effect on the tongue and roof of the mouth.

MXD (303) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 16, 2010
Pours copper, somewhat murky. Aroma is somewhat citrus hops and somewhat floral hops, with hints of wood and caramel. Taste is somewhat fruity, caramelish, malty, and obviously hoppy. STicky mouthfeel. Mild-bodied beer, with is somewhat unexpected from a DIPA. Overall, pretty good, but a bit too watery for a DIPA, and feels a bit like somebody wanted to make a DIPA but changed their mind in-between.
