An East Coast-style India Pale Ale that weaves intense hop bitterness and aroma throughout a blanket of malt background. This beer may change slightly from batch to batch as we explore the various interpretations of the style.

DomD (224) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2016
Bottle. Weak aroma of hops and citrus. Pours a clear amber with white head. Taste is light to medium bitter. Medium bodied with a sticky texture. Seems to have a strange cough drop texture and falvour in the the background.

Bierdimpfe (179) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Clear golden amber color. Creamy beige 1 finger head lasting around 4 minutes. Strong legs and some nice activity. Strong aromas and flavors of herbal and floral hops, clove, citrus and caramel . Super sharp and crisp bitter taste but very flavorful and pleasant. Medium slick body with perfect carbonation. Strong and long bitter finish, slightly mouthcoating and chalky, ending with a powerful smoky clove like feel on the tongue. Overall : Well crafted with some nice freshness and packed with flavors, but slightly too sour and spicy for my taste.

Luvystypotables (1467) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2015
A subdued aroma of malt and hops. Pours a clear dark amber color with a lasting thin well laced head. Bitter taste without a distinctive flavor. Dry feel with a light body and a bitter chalky finish.

jksipa (708) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2015
Clear dark amber with a tiny white head that doesn’t last. Prominent toffee and honey nose with faint grass and pine notes. Light sweet toffee with a muddled medium- bitterness. Medium slick mouth with soft carbonation and a short bitter finish. No date on this bottle, but I’m hoping it is just off. Will update if the next one is any better.

500ml into pint glass. Slightly hazy golden pour. Very forward grassy hop nose, with slight citrus note. A bit of a citrus flavour with light spruce notes. One of their more palatable brews.

vadie (1184) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2015
Un IPA qui profile le malt. Ça fait une bière bien équilibré avec une bonne amertume et un profile d’houblon floral. L’arôme et le goût sont tout les deux dominé (mais pas trop) par le malt.

yourilevesque (1112) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2015
Dégustée sur la terrasse en compagnie de Ju-Lo après notre merveilleux picnic de la rentrée! Bière cuivrée aux allures plutôt attirantes: mousse blanche formée de bulles de grosseur moyenne et moyennement adhésives au verre. Le liquide est trouble et paraît un peu boueux. Cette bière donne beaucoup dans le malts avec des arômes ainsi qu’une attaque à dominance maltées. Ça sent le mash de brassage. Les houblons employés sont résineux, mais ceux-ci ne surgissent qu’en finale - une fois le malt passé. Une drôle de IPA dont Ju-Lo souligne le côté miéleux du miel.

exeter (490) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 22, 2015
Pours a darker copper colour with a nice head and lacing. Taste is of caramel, herbal, citrus and spruce. Coats the the mouth with the spruce too heavily. Almost like I am eating flower stems. Not to my liking.

500ml bottle. Slightly hazy orange, copper pour, with a big white head. Aroma is very grassy, and herbaceous. Notes of dried tea leaves, hay, and dr s cut grass with some light pine. The body and carb are just perfect. The finish is quite bitter, with alot of pine resin and grasses,but still retains its slight spice and herbaciousness.
