Bottle from Marche Omni recently. Lots of hop oil and IBU, light orange juice but rather a mess to drink.

blankboy (6030) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2014
[Bottle (750ml)] Pours a deep, slightly hazy orange-amber with a large lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity first followed by hops of course, bready malt and some alcohol. Flavour is also sweet, bready and fruity along with citrus hops, some alcohol and a moderate but long bitter finish. Medium bodied. 111 IBUs and Cascade hops, I should love this more, but it’s just pretty good.

TaktikMTL (5711) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2013
Bouteille de 1 l, avec bouchon de céramique, achetée chez La Barik (Trois-Rivières, QC). Arôme: Odeur d’agrumes avec une pointe de caramel. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée voilée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de pamplemousse et de citron avec une pointe de caramel. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement houblonné. (Rating #7461)

Boutip (4703) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle: Poured a lightly hazy beige color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of medium citrus notes with some dry malt notes. Taste is also dominated by medium citrus notes originating from the Cascade hops with a solid malt backbone with a medium sweet finish. Body is full with great carbonation with alcohol not that apparent. Not bad overall but I was expecting a bit more of a hops punch form that one.

rodenbach99 (3146) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2012
Bouteille de 1 litre swing-top. Bière cuivrée avec une mousse beige durable. Le nez est composé de malt caramel avec des notes de houblons herbeux. La bouche est piquante, ronde et mordante. Il y a une forte amertume en fin de bouche.

SlovakSniper (3130) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2013
Une trop grosse bouteille heureusement partagée avec quelques membres de ma belle-famille. Ils sont complètement fous ces Belges! Bon, une grosse IPA bien foncée avec une représentation mousseuse qui cherche la ténacité. Un bon gros nez de caramel et, en extra, des parfums floraux et légèrement fruités. Un goût bien gras avec un sucre d’orge et d’intéressantes palpitations fruitées et florales. Une bouche pesante et huileuse qui est soumise à un pétillement moribond. Une finale sur des notes amères modérées par le comportement céréalier. Je partage l’opinion de mon beau-père: er is te veel suiker in dit bier.

Eructoblaster (2999) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle - 1 liter. Hazy copper body with average carbonation and a thin off-white creamy head. Robust hoppy aroma with malty, grapefruit, and woody hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its sharp hoppy taste is well balanced, not too agressive. It carries woody, brown sugar and some fruity notes. Ends with a long, sharp, moderately warming bitter finish. Nice!

probstblueribbon (2904) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
750 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep amber with a full light tan foam. Aroma: Lots of citrus – lemon peel, blood oranges, grapefruit, marmalade, rich, sweet caramel malts, apple juice (odd)...definitely some acetaldehyde, a little booze, meh. Palate: Medium+ body, full, fine, rich effervescence. Flav.: Lots of citrus, acetaldehyde, rich caramel malts, quite sweet, fairly boozy, not excellent; sweet with pretty good bitterness and a long, lightly boozy citrus and caramel finish.

Alright, somewhat flawed.
