3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2008 A swiftly departing white head leaves the orange hue. Expressive juicy hops come out with a strong herbal character (oregano? mint?), stripping out the malt’s evidence. Rather sprucey profile yet with all the citrus one could ask for and more. Crisp and clean palate offers a moderately high carbonation. Woompah, Benoît outdid his homeworks here. Spot on.
I’ve tried the February 2008 batch 2008 under the name Cuda. It was a far fruitier example with excellent tangerine flavours. Score stays the same.

Cask at cask days, Toronto 2015. Hazy, small white head. The aroma is hoppy, the taste not as much but the finish is really opt. It’s not as balanced as I expect from a good IPA.

Draught at brewpub. Plenty of pine/citrus hop action, decent honey malt backbone, dry bitter finish. These guys really don’t mess around with ipa, always with a generous hop bite.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Benelux. Sort of an amber, orange pour with white foam. Really just a lot of caramel malt and bread. Sorta earthy and floral...maybe some grass. There’s a woodiness to the flavor that I don’t care for. Sweet stone fruit and caramel malts dominate. Burnt/smokey finish. Slight citrus rind.
