3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[5298-20130428] Tap. Fresh orange citrus pips aroma. Clear, dark orange amber body with a quick foamy off-white head and some lacing. Lots of orange citrus flesh hops flavour is super bitter and super bold. Full body packs a bit of a sneaky boozy punch. Delicious, lovely orange hops profile. (8/3/8/4/16) 3.9

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the source.
Pours a cloudy murky reddish amber color with a creamy off white head that provides maximum stickage to the glass. It doesn’t look great. Smells of citrus pine and resin with bits of apricot and tropical fruit. There might be some bready malt in there but its hard to tell. Taste is fruity hop goodness with citrus and pine flavors and little bits of bread every now and then. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. Really nice double IPA that looks like shit but tastes like buttah.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: A very tasty full bodied, very hoppy, very bitter fruity golden IPA. A hophead delight
How: Tap at Benelux, Montreal, special Vermont night
The look: Cloudy amber body topped by a small off-white head
In long: Strong nose of fruity hops, fruity hops and then more fruity hops. Taste has a lot of semi-tasted honeyed and caramelized cereals, dried fruits, a lot of citrus fruits and tropical fruits, some hops resin. Bitterness level is in the medium-high range. There is sweetness in the attack but the hoppy finish washes it all away and the beer doesn’t feel sweet at all. A very good example of the style. That post-Mondial special Vermont event at Benelux was one of the busiest pub night I have ever seen in Montreal. If the art squeezing oneself in a crowded pub to get to the bar was considered a workout, I could teach classes.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber pour with an off white head. The lots of citrus and evergreen pine notes lead to lemon and grapefruit with a decent bready malt background. Medium palate with average carbonation.
