COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A pale malt bill with a healthy addition of oats, this beer received a massive dry hop of Galaxy and Enigma. A perfectly hazy, incredibly flavourful IPA with bold notes of stone fruit, basil, pineapple, and black tea. Subtle dank hop character within a well-balanced, lightly bitter body.

mathieuc (4000) - Québec, Quebec, - JUN 26, 2017
Pours a sunny and very hazy golden with a thin white head that still manages to leave what I would consider good lacing. Nose is of onions/diesel in the front and tropical fruits in the back. Taste is pretty fruity and not too bitter. À la mode. Body is a bit light for my liking and carbonation moderate. A light astringency. A green bitterness kick in the finish that lingers for a good duration. Still a pretty nice NEIPA, could be splendid with slightly more body!

Cloudy, beige beer, smells and tastes better than the first iteration, quite a bit of hop flavour without too much bitterness. Lots of pineapple, a tropical aroma and flavour. Decent.

[9418-20170711] Bottle. Fruity orange grapefruit peel hops aroma. Murky, pale orange tan body with a long-lasting foamy white head. Fruity orange peel hops and grapefruit flavour. Medium body is quite bitter. Good, nice strong bitter bite. (8/3-/8/4/15) 3.8

Grapefruit jumps out of the glass along with a little caramel and whole wheat bread. Taste is dry and a little underwhelming.

Boutip (6567) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2017
Bottle: Poured a cloudy bright yellow color ale with a medium foamy head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of orange juice with light citrus hoppy notes and some residual sugar notes is quite pleasant. Taste is a great mix of citrusy notes with orange juice notes with some bitterness and some oat malt presence to ensure a smooth palate. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Solid NEIPA with maybe tad more bitterness then I was expecting.

2017-05-27. Hazy pastel yellow body, modest white head. 3+ Aroma is modestly pleasantly hoppy, light fruit. Light hop veg in the background. Flavour is moderately bitter, moderate hop character, light fruit and good amount green hops in the finish. Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Enjoyable but a bit more green than my preference. 7/3-4/7/3/14-15 Bottle shared with Lubiere at Brothers Beer Bistro, Ottawa.

500ml. Pours hazy pale yellow with small white head. Nose resinous and piny. Floral and citrusy. Taste floral and resinous. Finish oily and resinous. Quite bitter. Nice stuff but quite bitter and rough. Still great IPA.

mcberko (19193) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 5, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2017 500mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a murky cloudy peachy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of bitter piney and citrus hops, with pithy notes and biscuity malt. Flavour is pithy and bitter, with lots of pithy, citrus hops, dry hopping and crisp biscuity malt. Bitter and pithy, and rather yeasty, too much so. It’s okay.

Bottle (500 ml) bought at Bellwoods yesterday. Hazy pale yellow with a medium white head, moderate retention, leaving little lacing. Aroma is of pineapples, herbal hops, dank hops, light resinous presence and mild cereals spiciness. Taste is of pineapples/tropical fruits, herbal presence, a lean malt backbone, floral notes and light bitterness. Light body for a nearly 7% abv beer (which is well hidden). Moderate-medium carbonation. Floral and herbal finish with dank aftertaste. The fruitiness doesn’t come out as much as I expected considering the beer description but the lean malt backbone makes it really easy drinking.

Lubiere (14192) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2017
A hazed blonde ipa with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light sulfur notes, resinous floral hops, grapefruit pulp, nice and smooth. In mouth, a nice dry biscuit malt with resinous floral hops, light catty notes, nice and smooth. Bottle at Brother’s Beer Bistro.
