A hazy amber beer with a nice off-white head. The aroma is hoppy - though not extremely hoppy, but also with notes of caramel and some citrus - probably from the hops. The flavor is sweet and quite hoppy, with some alfa acids being present, but also pretty strong notes of caramel, that makes the mouthfeel slightly sticky.

Bright amber colour. Toasty, woody aroma with a hint of toasty, toffeeish malts. A little spritziness takes away from the body and the expressiveness of the malt but otherwise it’s an evenly balanced, chewy, bitter, woody example. Lubiere (13954) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2005
Godlen ale with a good white head. Aroma of hops and clover field, resinous notes. Good malt base in mouth, with hops and grapefruits . Rich bodied. The other Brouemont classic. Sammy (12347) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2009
at Festival Bières et Saveurs 2009 with the brewer Patrick and Fred from Hopfenstark. Heard this was thought by many to be Quebec’s best IPA and I was not disapointed. 78 IBU makes it like a 1.5 IPA. Lacey, medium grapefruit colour. Cascade among four US hops used. Served too cold. Still malt in thre, its not too bitter. MartinT (9932) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2005 Oranges and peaches envelop muscular hops (Centennial?)...Earthy yeast mingles with round maltiness and squinting caramel warmly hugs the indigenous, strong hop bitterness of a typical West Coast IPA...The best of the regulars at this fun brewpub...

En fût. Arôme: Odeur de fleurs, d’orange et de conifère. Apparence: Petit col qui reste longtemps. Couleur dorée foncée. Saveur: Explosion de houblon. Palette: Amertume avec une saveur qui reste en bouche. (Rating #13) Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2005
Superb off-white head climbs the sides of the glass. Hazy orange. Piney and grapefruity nose doesn’t hide the origin of its inspirations. Light backing maltiness. Wet aspects come to enhance the drinkability in mouth. Earthy, piney crisp hops, a bit sweaty. Light-medium bodied, refreshing citrus character. Typical excellent brewpub IPA. tom10101 (6135) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2015
On tap @ Brouemont.

Appearance: Slightly hazy bright golden with a mdium white head and good lacing.
Aroma: Not a burst of hops, but a good mix of citrusy, herbal and piney hops. There’s some perfumy notes that I enjoy a bit less, but it’s still nothing too heavy or malty.
Taste: Grainy with a moderate malt presence, herbal not, mild citrus, pine and moderate bitterness.
Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Moderately dry finish. A bit sticky, but a lot less than their APA.
Overall: A good old style IPA without too much of a malty presence and a decent mix of hops. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

In short: A bland, oily and not-aromatic IPA. Drinkable, but way below average for the style
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear golden-orange topped by a persistent small off-white head leaving good lacing on the glass
In long: Timid nose of fruity hops and cereals, this is not an aromatic IPA. Taste has a basic semi-caramelized malt backbone, baguette, timid presence of citrusy and grassy hops. A big resinous. Sticky bitterness of medium intensity. Strong unpleasant oily sensation from start to finish. Not much better at the brewpub than the first time I had it at the Mascouche Oktoberfest, a beer event which magnitude is matched only by the camping Raymond mini-putt tournament
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2015 On tap, 12 oz. Good looking IPA with a very enjoyable aroma. There is a mix of mango puree, pine and citrus. Flavor is nicely balanced between bitter herbal hops and the acidity of citrus. Crisp and full mouthfeel with appropriate carbonation. Nice bitter, somewhat dry finish.
