COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A big bitter 77 IBU India Pale Ale, spiced with a blend of fragrant Magnum, Simcoe, and Cascade hops. An American IPA receipe designed by our late Brewmaster, Greg Noonan. He said that he wanted this to represent the American style IPAs being brewed by the creative brewers using todays malt and hop varieties.

BeerGolem (715) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 14, 2014
Sample on tap at brewpub. Pours clear orange with minimal head and some lacing. Not much aroma: distant floral and hoppy notes. Not much on taste neither. Strong bitterness. Maybe this would be better on pint, but seems to me there are plenty of better IPA out there.

Braudog (5902) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Draft at the brewpub. Light golden beer. Overall, a middle of the road brew without much to say about it. It’s a "house beer" with just the slightest of hop components. (#5809, 10/9/2014)

[5288-20130428] Tap. Mild orange evergreen aroma. Clear, bright orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white head with some lacing. Lightly bittered lemon drops and pine resin flavour. Medium body is fairly bitter. Delicious, very easy to drink. (8-/3/7/4/15) 3.7

Ed5388 (2236) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2013
On tap @ the brew pub. Pours a clear golden color with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus fruit and light tropical notes. Taste is citrus, caramel, oily, with a bitter grapefruit finish.

beerproject (129) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Aroma is quite light with grapefruit and floral notes. Taste is well balanced bitter up front, followed by more american hop citrus, grapefruit and a touch of dank. Pretty good beer, but on the light side of ipa.

jercraigs (8070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2013
2013-04-28. Crisp bright orange body small off-white head. Sort of pithy musty orange citrus in the aroma. 7+ Flavour is fairly bitter, sort of orange and tangerine, light leafy green hop undertones. 7+ Average bodied palate, carbonation suits it. Decent IPA. On tap at the brewpub

Metalchopz (2405) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
Sampled at the brewpub. Golden with an off-white head. The nose is hoppy with grapefruit, pine and grass. Also, some sweetness. The taste is as hoppy with the same notes and a grainy finish, and bitterness lingering. Dry mouthfeel. This is definitely the hoppiest beer here so far.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2013
Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur cuivrée-orangée et légèrement voilée. Nez de houblon herbeux (incluant des notes de menthe), légèrement citrique et fruité (agrumes, traces d’abricots) aux notes florales, moyen de malt avec des notes de pain. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement huileuse. Goût moyen-amer de houblon herbeux, légèrement fruité (agrumes, notes d’abricots) aux notes citriques (une amertume présente toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de malt sucrés avec des notes de pain et de biscuits puis en finale l’on retrouve une amertume de houblon plus herbeuse, moyennement asséchante et aux petites notes résineuses. Post-goût moyen-long et moyennement sec, moyen-amer de houblon herbeux, légèrement floral et fruité (zeste d’agrumes) aux notes citriques et résineuses avec des traces rôties. (17 avril 2013)

AirForceHops (3522) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Draft @ the Brew Pub. 6 oz. snifter. Citrus hop nose. Thick full head on a bright yellow color. Nice blend of citrus and pine hops, with a decent amount of malt to balance it. After sipping this I think of the classic traditional IPA feel. Does anybody else remember a time before the whole beer world went hop bomb crazy?? This IPA reminds me of the days before crazy Imperial IPA’s. Very effective classic American IPA. Very sessionable, light pine, light citrus, light lingering bitterness.
