mathieuc (4000) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear red with a small white rim that leaves no lacing. Nose is of fruits, resin and light caramel. Taste is of caramel, cereals and fruits and not too bitter. Body is medium and carbonation light. Mouthfeel is a little sticky. Overall this was OK but not much more, a run-of-the-mill IPA. tom10101 (6278) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2015
On tap @ Cambridge Brewing Co. Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
Appearance: Slightly hazy mahogany with a small white head and little lacing.
Aroma: Spices and caramel are dominating along toasted malts, resinous notes, citrus and berries notes.
Taste: Caramel forward with toasted malt, spices, a bit of resin and moderate bitterness.
Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. A bit oily mouthfeel. Lingering spicy finish with caramel notes.
Overall: A Christmas IPA? Not sure I like this take on the style at all.
On tap on the premise. czar (9477) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2015
Pours mahogany with very low off-white head. No lacing. Aroma is of citrus, citronella, some malt, caramel, resin, pine. Taste is of very nice citronella, pine, malt (slightly roasted), sugar. Palate: Medium body. Very soft carbonation. Slightly sticky on the lips. Somewhat heavy. Overall: Not bad, nice hop features. Maybe just slightly too heavy on malt.

On tap at the brewpub. Clear copper pour with thin ring of white foam. Aroma is malty, lots of sweet caramel malty notes, old school amber/red IPA, light pine. Taste is resinous, hoppy, pretty solid toasty malt backbone, some spice. Decent, not really my style.
