pumpkinhead2 (562) - Longueuil, Quebec, - NOV 8, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2014 Bière jaune dorée, voilée de multiples petites particules, effervescence moyenne, large col blanc mousseux qui forme une belle dentelle sur les parois du verre. Arômes dominants de houblon floral et fruité (agrumes, ananas, pêche…), avec un peu de malt légèrement grillé, caramel, miel, sucre d’orge. Un beau nez, à la fois houblonné et sucré, mais rien d’extraordinaire, et ça manque un peu de complexité. En bouche, pétillement moyen, onctuosité au palais intéressante, consistance liquoreuse, huileuse, typique des bières bien houblonnées. Au goût, on perçoit d’abord un petit malté style sucre d’orge en entrée de bouche, mais il est rapidement tassé par un intense houblon floral aux accents de pamplemousse, et une forte amertume qui prend toute la place. Selon moi, cette bière manque clairement de richesse et d’équilibre, ça manque de malt, le houblon est trop intense et l’amertume est à la limite du tolérable. Mais, au fil des gorgées la langue s’habitue… disons donc que c’est une bière correcte, sans plus.

Lubiere (11170) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2015
A golden DIPA with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with light grassy floral hops. In mouth, a sweet fruity caramel malt with light fruity esters, pink grapefruit, light butterscotch, floral resinous hops, OK. Can at La Cuvée d’été, 2015.

Hits the style, thick, very carbonated. Hops not so tasteful, as this needs balance. From Broue Ha Ha.

Ferris (7703) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle - Citrus and light pine with some nice caramel back bone. Clear gold with a rich off white head. Lots of sweet caramel with some Mandarin and orange notes. A little on the sweet side, but not bad.

fiulijn (16428) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Hazy golden color with small head. The aroma is mildly fruity, mellow; nice. The malt profile is poor, there are light colored caramel notes, but that’s not enough; decent level of bitterness, like a Pale Ale, a bit of hop resins, but not at all the hop qualities expected from a Double IPA.
Modest beer.

mcberko (9355) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 16, 2015
341mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out caramel biscuity malt and very mild resinous hops -- more malty than hoppy but not too sweet. Flavour is not overly hoppy, with toffee, biscuity malt and lightly astringency floral hops. Not a good hop blend. Weird stuff -- seems very confused. Finishes malty and sweet, but not cloying. A jumbled mess. Not bad, but it’s a bad recipe.

ametras (782) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2015
341ml bottle. Clear orange with a frothy off-white head. Flavors are caramel, sugar, apricot, citrus, pine resin, soap and alcohol with floral and spicy notes. Cloying sweetness, harsh and astringent finish, hardly drinkable. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, oily sticky texture.

bunget (681) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2015
341ml bottle. Clear golden body, medium fluffy white head with good retention. Some sediments at the bottom. Aroma is fruity and sweet: orange candies, caramel, butter, peaches and some pine. Taste is clean and crisp: good amount of malts, orange candies, grapefruit zest, a touch of pine. Overall a good and pleasant IPA.

mathieuc (2192) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2015
Pours a clear golden with a medium white head that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is fruity hops, garbage and butter. Overall cohesive but a bit awkward. Amateur-ish. Taste is of caramel, fruity hops and moderately bitter. Light alcohol. Body is medium and carbonation high while mouthfeel is sticky. Overall this wasn’t exciting or well-executed at all, just OK.

mkel07 (4312) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle from Cool Wine 050215. This is a beer that needs to be treated with respect or it will bite you hard. Big in the nose and in the mouth with an sunset orange colour and a layer of even white foam that stays for a while. A beer to be enjoyed over time.

Wow! Hoppy aroma,(heavey), pine resin, grapefruit,fade to lemon. Massive almost white head that lasts quite long. Lacing exstrordinaire. Clear, light amber body. Sweet, but with an explosion of grapefruit and kumquats that fades to rind and spices(long). Light to medium, dry texture with a lively carbonation. Pretty good! Cheers!
