Une bouteille de 650 ml dégustée avec Anna P entre deux chasses. Une belle robe cuivrée. Une tête large et rocailleuse. De gros morceaux blanchâtres qui restent collés sur la paroi de nos verres. Un nez piqué par des aiguilles de conifères. Une formation citronnée qui semble aussi apparaître à travers des éléments houblonnés floraux et terreux. Peu ou prou de malts caramélisés pour en faire un quelconque éloge. Un goût de houblons frais et humides, de pin et d’épinette avec, pour agrémenter le tout, la présence de bonnes morsures florales. Une bouche pétillante et légère, un peu mince mais parfaitement compatible avec mon palais qui cherche toujours, dans ce type de bière, la picolabilité. Une finale très longue avec des houblons vifs et puissants qui laisse l’intérieur de ma bouche sèche et piquée comme peut le faire les milliers de cactus du désert de Sonora.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2014 On cask at Beaus Oktoberfest. Tropical and citrus hops aroma. Simcoe? Some faint melanoidiny notes. Hazy copper under some w white bubbles. Pleasant tropical and grapefruit pith flavour that finishes. Some chocolate undertones in the finish. Lingering bitterness, medium light body. On Cask at Winterbrewed 2014. Dry hopped with a ton of Mosaic hops. Tropical and cat pee hops dominates with blueberry and some faint malt in the distant background. /8 Very cloudy gold under a very thin white sheet and lace. /2 Bitter hops up front with a good amount of base malt sweetness to balance. Mouthful of hops flavour (including some hops leaves) that is fruity with blueberry, strawberry, pine, and cat pee. /8 Medium body, low to moderate carbonation, slightly bitter finish. /4 Overall. /17; 3.9

Really nice flavour, not overly hoppy, good colour and nice aroma, definitely worth a try.

rejtable (1267) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2013
Man this is nice! Pours mostly clear orange with minimal head and some clumpy lacing. Nose is very citrusy. Notes of juicy citrus, pine comes, maybe a slight peach back there. Taste is very slight sweet fruit and lots of bitterness that lasts a long time. Full juicy body with lively carbonation and an aggressive dry finish. Really great!

On tap at National Capital Beer Festival. Amber with an off white head. First whiff makes me think of wet hops with a mellow resiny bitterness, quite smooth, some fruitiness and a nice bready malt backbone without too much sweetness. Moderate carbonation, moderate yet mild body, initial hint of sweetness that becomes bitter, quite balanced and a nice long finish that keeps on giving.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2013 Update: 650 ml bottle. Pours a nearly clear golden orange with a one finger white head that leaves nice lacing. Bubbles rising to the surface. Aroma has notes of citrus, and pine. Taste is bitter with a dry bitter aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Simcoe cask at Session Muskoka. Pours a translucent orange with a bubbly white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy. Taste is bitter with notes of hops and a slightly dry finish. Low carbonation. Medium body. Slightly watery texture. Nice stuff.Update: Regular Lone Pine on tap at Session Muskoka. Pours a transparent Orange with a one finger white head that thins to a film. Nice lacing.Similar taste to the simcoe cask but with more fruits and pine. Nice stuff. Not my fav but good. Worth a try.

On cask @PubMilos. A very solid representation of the West Coast IPA. Chewy citrus and pine over a good caramel and biscuit background. Big hop aroma; long, lasting bitterness. Nice.
