Bouteille achetee directement chez Beau’s. Couleur ambree trouble. Nez un peu en retrait de pamplemousse et zeste d’agrumes. En bouche: amertume tranchante, pamplemousse et notes tres legeres de malt. Je suis bien content d’avoir fait la route pour m’en procurer. Lubiere (14192) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2012
An orange amber DIPA with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, a nice smooth grassy hops profile, piney and resinous, with light cloves and honey malt. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with resinous bitter piney hops, sustained grassy bitterness, intense and challenging, very nice. On tap at Wellington Gastropub, Feb. 23 2012, 8$ a pint.

On draught at Burger Bar. Looks good deep coppery amber with a solid lasting fizzy/creamy off-white head, thick lacing too. Aroma is a bit mild but quite bitter - dry resin and dry pine duff, not sweet, some alcohol. Taste follows, solid malt body and backbone but no sweetness, it just frames the robust resin/conifer/citrus zest bitterness and strong but appropriate alcohol. Thick, chewy, nicely carbonated, with a long, powerful, dry resin finish and aftertaste. A hint of the "English" IPA but just a hint - I might not drink more than two pints of this in one go, but damned good! solidfunk (9444) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Strong hops, alcohol and a slightly fruity body. An ipa with a good, interesting body. Very interesting beer - I will definitely try this again. On tap at the burger bar. PatIrish (184) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2012
On tap at The Only, pours an amber to red in colour, frothy white head. The aroma is quite unique, floral & fruity. Taste is sweet and full on the palate with lot’s of hop bitterness on the finish. Quite nice.

On Tap at Volo. garthicus (2953) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 1, 2012
Upfront grassy hops, and some light citrus. Malts are also upfront, and are mainly toasty cereals. Good carbonation, mouth feel is good. Finish is a medium bitterness, with some nice citrus hops in the end. touches of pine in the aftertaste.
Appearance: Ruby Red, frothy snow white head. Aroma: Malty, a hint of fruit, quite perfume-y, a pgood amount of hops in the nose too. Flavour: Chewy sweet mouthfeel at first, quite a lot of sweetness making way for lots of floral hops, alcohol is certainly detectable, tangy on the palate, long bitter finish. Nice.

On tap at the Burger Bar. Pours a cloudy orange-brown with modest-sized off-white head and good lace. Aroma is fairly mild with caramel/grains and citric/piney hops. Taste has big, lightly toasty caramel, some grainy character and hops. Modest bitterness in finish. Good, not great.
