Bottle, at home, before the hockey game. Orange-reddish color, hazy with lots of carbonation. Aroma almost exclusively of citrus. A heavy bitterness that last, but not over powering, no sweet what so ever. Lively carbonation, in glass and in mouth. A good IPA. And have to add, since I am drinking it as I am writing, bitterness in mouth is tenacious. barncatmatt (2287) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2012

341ml bottle, hazy amber hue, with a bubbly beige head, mild toasted, caramel malt, with a kind of funky yeastiness nose, with some leathery, wet leafy, grassy, soapy, citrus, resiny hoppy accents in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, wet dry tobacco, leafy, grassy hop character, with some raw resiny, cedary, coniferous flavours, with a faint toasted, caramel, pale malty undertone, leading towards a faint fruity, juicy leafy, grassy, minty, piney, citrus hop bitterness finish.

Pours dark copper with low beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is of malt, sweetness, caramel, citrus. Taste is of malt, bitterness, earthy, overdone english hops. Palate: good body. Overall: Ill balanced, Not my kind of IPA, cloying earthy english bitterness. Still decent. BeerGolem (829) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle 341 ml. Pours burgundy with tiny beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is strangely malty for an IPA. Taste, on the contrary is way too much on earthy hops. No balance at all. Drinkability is low. Not very interesting.

Aroma: Citrus and grapefruit mainly with toasted cereal notes.
Appearance: Clear copper, average size frothy head, between light brown, and off-white, mostly lasting, no lacing.
Taste: Attack is all bitterness. Grapefruit is all over with orange zest notes. Hops are very cutting with ash and smoke accents. Not a lot of malted flavors.Finish is dry, ashy and very long lasting.
Very dry and bitter IPA. Couldn’t find any malt accents. If you look for strong bitterness without any sugar this your beer. dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - AUG 31, 2012
Thanks Pat! Dark brown orange with a decent white head. Aroma is very malt heavy, not really much for fruity hops i expected. Really malty, some grapefruit hops, some herbal notes and quite bitter. Sticky and chewy. Not a bad IPA, but not my favorite kind of one. tom10101 (6228) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle (341 ml). Amber with a medium diminishing brown head and some lacing. Aroma is malty with citrus and hops. Taste is of grapefruit with a good malty body. There’s also some earthy/minerals notes. Medium but sticky bitterness. Mouthfeel is dry. Good IPA. VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2012
341 ml bottle. Pours an almost completely opaque, orange-brown amber with a long-lasting beige head. Smells of cereals and hops. Tastes like light caramel, cereals, unsweetened dough. Strong, sharp bitterness. Very dry. Herbal, earthy, sandy. Maybe a hint of sweet citrus, in there? It’s so strong and overwhelming! Medium-bodied, thick, resinous mouthfeel. Very solidly bitter, that’s what I’m looking for when I grab an IPA. Bean (79) - Saint-Eustache, Québec, - JUL 4, 2012
Very nice hop aroma that let you think of a hard malt backbone. A different story happens in your mouth. Hard bitterness slaps your tastebuds. Malts are there, but almost in a salty-final note. This one is made clean bitter hop. A good hard IPA that doesn’t wait too long to bite you. Not my kind of IPA, not the school of hops I studied at, but sure, a nice beer to drink once in a while...
