COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this one because we just can’t get enough of those hops. IPA’s seem to be a great choice any time of the year. They have a great malt flavor and hop profile, just what a beer connoisseur is looking for. We decided to give this one a bit more hops. Try this with a strong cheese like a very sharp cheddar, cloth bound, aged if you can find one.

pours a clear orange color with little head. lot’s of citrus hops in the nose. taste is hop punch of citrus flavors and bitter. almost a bit spicy even. not a bad double IPA but certainly not the best.

FROMTHEBOTTLE (31) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2015
650ml bottle Pour is orange/amber in color. Head is small but lingers. Aromas of caramel and roasted malt combined with nice pine scents. Sharp bitterness is offset by the underlying fruitiness of oranges and sweet caramel. Not an overly complex beer, but if hops and bitterness are your thing, this is for you. Expect IBU count to be higher than listed 80. ABV of 8 also offset nicely. Drink anytime, no need to save for special occasion.

Franckg (523) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2015
Robe brune orangée légèrement trouble. Col de mousse blanchâtre dense et épais. Même chose pour la dentelle. Arômes de pin, citron, orange sucrées, malt légèrement terreux. Effluves de poivre et zeste de pamplemousse. En bouche, malt, orange, léger caramel. Touche de fruits exotiques amers. Un peu poivré, Arrière-goût de pin et baies sucrées. Finale longue et amère sans être trop sèche. Taux d’alcool élevé plutôt subtil. Ne réinvente pas le produit mais intéressante.

puboflyons (2594) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 26, 2015
From the 650 ml. bottle. A cloudy copper-amber pour under a moderate cream colored head. The aroma is of roasted malts but more so the resin, and floral hops. The body is medium to better. The alcohol sneaks up on me. Or maybe it is because I had a light lunch. Roasted malts and modest bitterness to finish. Smooth.

veronneaupy (241) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 22, 2015
Au nez, houblons épicés, herbacés et un cote sucré est présent. En bouche, c'est amer, beau grain et sucré aussi. La finale est moyennement longue, amère et assez sucrée. L'alcool est bien dissimulée. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slipstream (2236) - USA - NOV 23, 2014
Dark tan pour with a modest head. The label is leafy and attractive. An excellent aroma cheers the nostrils - full and sweet, with flowers and pine. The taste is mostly dry, with a grapefruit peel taste standing out the most. Very good.

Ron (3057) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle. Poured a orange amber with a small off white creamy head. Aroma of caramel, fruit, earth, citrus and some sweetness. A pretty well balanced and tasty version of the style. Good caramel base with some grapefruit, earth, other citrus and sugar. Alcohol is pretty well hidden. Better than the other IPAs of last night.
