pumpkinhead2 (907) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2016
Bire jaune tirant un peu vers lorange, parfaitement trouble avec fines particules visibles, effervescence moyenne-bonne, et surmonte dun col blanc pas tellement large, mais trs dense, trs mousseux, cotonneux mme, et trs rsistant. Armes de ptisserie, sucre dorge et malt mielleux, accompagn dun houblon principalement fruit (orange, mangue, cantaloup, pche). Les effluves sont trangement lourds et ils manquent de fracheur, odeur cartonn (oxydation?), sirop de fruits tropicaux Je remarque linstant un code sur le bas de la bouteille qui semble indiquer un embouteillage le 27 juin 2015. Jai peur que cette bire achet il y a quelques jours la SAQ soit un peu vieille Les armes me semble galement un peu pic, mais davantage dans les phnols que le houblon Nez ordinaire qui annonce peut-tre un produit problmatique, complexit et intensit adquates. En bouche, ptillement moyen-lev sur la langue, onctuosit intressante au palais, cest soyeux et velout. Au got, ptisserie et sucre ple (sucre brut tendance mielleux), houblon principalement fruit (orange et fruits tropicaux) mais galement un peu rsineux. On retrouve cette impression de manque de fracheur en bouche, difficile de dire si cest un effet voulu par le brasseur, ce nest pas particulirement dsagrable, seulement un peu trange. Got moyen, complexit moyenne en bouche, bonne intensit. Tout juste une bonne bire, sans plus [Je ne lai pas note trop svrement, tant donn la date prsume dembouteillage, plus de 11 mois]

ChadPoole (443) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2016
Pours hazy amber/orange with a white head that laces the glass. Has a citrus and pine aroma. Taste is the same as aroma with some sweet fruits, caramel malts and a decent bitterness. Bought a six pack at the lcbo, really liked how each bottle had different art work.

Oldschool_Mike (366) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 11, 2016
Bottle into pint glass. Pours a hazy golden colour with white head. Aroma is slightly catty with pine resin. Taste is about the same.

Tessic (1131) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2016
This IPA poured a nice amber colour with a big, soapy, off white head. Scents include grassy hops and root vegetables. First swig was quite hoppy with flavors of hay and grass. Finish was quite hoppy and bitter with grass finishing off the palate.

fhoublon (461) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2016
Bouteille de 355ml achete dans une SAQ. Dguste le 4 mars 2016 (lager glass). Bire blonde dore voile. Mousse beaucoup, il faut tre prudent en la versant sinon elle dborde facilement. Col blanc crme trs pais et persistant. Trs effervescente, grosses bulles. Odeur de pamplemousse, de sucre drable. Assez forte en amorce, assez sucre, trs amre. Saveur sche un peu herbace. Bien mais aurait pu tre mieux quilibre.

UXO (1803) - CANADA - APR 5, 2016
Appearance: clear pale amber with one fat finger of fluffy ivory head, excellent retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: resiny pine, catty, citrus, pale malt. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter finish. (4/5) Can I just say, their decision to integrate their labels with the Blippar app is just fucking genius? Crack a beer, scan the label, and rock out (in this bottles case, to a choral rendition of Totos Africa) - whats not to like? Oh, and the beers quite decent, too. Resiny pine leads, with a mild and inoffensive catty edge, and just the right pale malt supporting. The bitterness in the finish is fairly lingering and aggressive, and I can see it being a deal breaker for some - but not me. Yeah, its got some rough edges, but ultimately its a solid APA. (15/20)

Pours a hazy gold colour with one finger of lasting head. Aroma of apples, pears, mangos and citrus. Taste matches the aroma and finishes dry and hoppy. Medium carbonation.
