Pours like apple cider with a frothy head. Nose is caramel and orange (or, sorry, clementines) with a weird sour, metal background taste. Taste is surprisingly sweet with caramel, orange, a weird overripe apple taste, strange bits of toastiness, and a slightly dry finish (no idea where those 55 IBU are). This beer is weird, to say the least. Definitely not an IPA, it tastes almost like a weird beer/cider hybrid. As one reviewer aptly noted it seems like an experiment gone wrong. Also I have never seen a beer with such consistently mediocre ratings, but such varied tasting notes. Every review reads like a different beer. Really disappointed that I spent $5 for a 341ml of this shyte.

Bière cuivrée, exhaussée d’une mousse généreuse mais fugace, dont le nez évoque le caramel doux, un peu de houblons floraux et peut-être du poivre blanc (subtil). En bouche, maintenant, c’est assez singulier pour une IPA. Notes vineuses et acidulées qui surprennent d’emblée. Si on analyse un peu, on perçoit ensuite des notes de fruits sûrs et et sucre d’orge. C’est tout de même bien, mais pas ce à quoi je m’attendais. Très peu d’amertume. Cheers!

Bière rousse, trouble et couverte d’un large col laissant une mince dentelle au verre. Au nez, du caramel, des arômes herbacés aux accents de poivre vert. Elle est bien amère, sans trop de sucre résiduel. Elle est de corps moyen, très effervescente, de texture lisse et se termine sur d’agréables arômes et une légère astringence.

cargo150 (649) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 18, 2014
Bière de couleur ambrée avec un peu de mousse. Nez de houblons herbeux et de caramel. En bouche houblons herbeux caramel, gout un peu métallique un peu comme les bières commercial on dirait mais c’est vraiment subtil sur une moyenne amertume. Ce n’est pas une mauvaise bière mais elle est mal balancé et beaucoup trop cher pour ce que c’est... Ce boit bien mais je ne la conseille pas a personne...

Boutip (4779) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle: Poured a deep red amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention with some light lacing. Aroma of light earthy hops notes with some caramelized malt notes. Taste is also dominated by caramelized malt with some medium notes of earth hops with light bitter finish. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation. Fell a bit short on the hops sides of things.

czar (4546) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2014
pours unclear medium dark golden orange with a small off-white cap, little retention and lacing. citrus - oranges, clementines indeed, melons, toasted sugary malts, wildflower honey, pine, grass, chalky and bitter herbs. low carbonation - clearly lacking, light body - oily, a bit sticky, offensive and harsh citrusy-piney-sulfury finish. like an experiment gone wrong. DP.

Eructoblaster (3064) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle - 341ml. Hazy amber body with a fading off-white foamy/bubbly head. Fair malty aroma with hoppy, bubble gum, and flowery hints. Unlike the aroma, taste is dominated by hoppy flavors. It also carries malty, herbal, and sweet notes. Ends with a short bitter finish. Ordinary.

Bean (73) - Saint-Eustache, Québec, - DEC 15, 2013
Nice malty touch. No foam at all. Slight hop aroma. Not a bad beer. Not a good deal either.

Minderbinder (1900) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle 341ml. Pours clear blond with low beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of rotten citrus, weird stuff. Taste is of weird malt, mild bitterness, rotten citrus, fruits. The malt here seems straight up problematic. Palate: Medium body. Overall: Well this is not good at all. Repulsive. Something is wrong with this beer. A no brainer DP.

electrotype (240) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2013
Arôme d’alcool et de malt. Très petite mousse. Belle couleur cuivré foncé. Goûte simlaire à l’arôme mais avec un arrière-goût de carton. Les houblons apportent de l’amertume mais aucune saveur très intéressante.
