Atheist_Peace (967) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2013
**I’m pretty sure the bottle I bought was incredibly old. Clear amber/honey pour with an eggshell head. Yeasty nose with a big stale caramel note, something papery and a light hop character. Hoppier on the palate but not in a good way—there’s a chalky aspirin flavour that destroys the finish. Ick.

mcberko (6702) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 1, 2013
650mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a hazy dark golden orange with a small off-white head. Nose brings out lots of orange fruits, candied sugar, and toffee -- seems over-malted for an IPA. Flavour is thankfully more hoppy and dry, and less sweet, bringing out notes of piney hops, a touch of candied oranges, and grapefruit. Quite bitter, dry and juicy on the finish. High drinkability - very refreshing on this hot day.

rejtable (1378) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2013
Nice ipa. Pours straw some cloudyness. Some head some lacing. Notes of citrus and rubber. Also some light malt backing. Medium body with lively carbonation. Tastes medium/hight bitter with very light sweet.

VincentL (278) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 28, 2013
Belle couleur dorée, une odeur franche d’agrume et fleur de houblon, une amertume tranchante et vive, sucre peu présent, enveloppe bien la bouche, arrière goût légèrement cuirée. Très bonne dans la gamme de l’amertume résolu.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2013
Bière dorée et claire surmontée d’une épaisse mousse blanche affichant une bonne tenue. Elle dévoile de puissants arômes de houblons américains, d’agrumes et de pin. En bouche, les arômes s’expriment avec puissance et le malt pâle est en arrière plan pour lui laisser la place. Elle ne sombre pas dans des excès d’amertume. Une des bonnes IPA au Québec.

Reimer96 (1278) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 12, 2013
Pours a clear golden copper with a frothy white head. Aroma of citrus piney hops, sweet pale malts and some floral notes. Taste is citrus hops, sweet pale malts and a big hop bitterness. Bitterness is very astringent and harsh. Decent ipa but the bitterness kills this one. Weakens a bit as it warms but I’m not a fan.

andrewturba (999) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 12, 2013
Pours a very cloudy orange with a lot of sediment and suspended solids with A small creamy white head that leaves some lace. Aroma is sweet citrus, grass, pine, and some malty sweetness. Flavour is a mild resin, medium bitterness that lingers, and a medium sweetness.

BreWedge (325) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2013
660 ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a huge pillowy beige head. Aromas are hay, citrus, and pine. Taste is citrus dominant with a hint of pine and some biscuity malt. Super smooth, nice round mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation, and a gentle bitter finish. Great IPA.

dresden (883) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 7, 2013
Bomber from Phil. I had the other Pit Caribou IPA and I thought this was going to be the same one..I was very wrong. Orange pour with a foamy sticky head that laces all the way. Aroma is fresh citrus and some pine. Finally a Quebec ipa with a nice malt body balance. Some nice resinous hops, citrusy and sticky. Excellent
