Bottle at home. Pours a hazy Amber with a slightly off white head. Light caramel, light veggie funk, lemon, grass, light herbiness aroma. Medium carbonation, medium body. Caramel, lemon, wood, orange, rye, toast... It's OK.

Bottle from Craig and Lisa last year at Christmas. Been in the cellar for more than a year. Lovely reddish brown with thin tan leather head with nice lacing. Strong biscuit and hop and caramel aromas, with similar flavours. Full, smooth mouth feel. Bitterness in the tail end, but not too much. This is really good. alex_leit (4107) - Minsk, BELARUS - APR 4, 2016
Bottle. Pale amber color. Pleasant hop aroma, floral, nectar, fruity and a little citrus. Taste: malty, sweet nectar, fruity, good hop bitterness. tillmac62 (734) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Notched 3 and 8. Pours a very cloudy brown with a high level of suspended matter. Below normal head volume, lacing and retention.
Nice nose of caramel, toasted malt (somewhat grainy), sweet ripe fruit esters (stone fruit, grape) and very little hop influence.
Heavy light body that is smooth. Normal carbonation with a bit of mid-palate effervescence and a fair burst in the finish.
The flavor profile is less than average for the style - not bad, but note quite good either. It has a slight caramel note throughout and bitterness is rather mild. An English Bitter hop flavor is present, but rather muted. The finish is a lingering English Bitter hop flavor that seems a bit off. I won’t buy this again.

Couleur cuivré, belle effervescence avec une mousse présente qui colle sur les paroi du verre.
Goût caramélisant côtoyé par le sucre brun! En bouche nous y détectons une présence plaisante de pin et d’agrume!

Red body with almost no head. Aroma of bitter hops, taste is smooth and light yet still full bodied.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2016 From a bottle. Dark red, sharp bite. Not overly flavorful but you can taste caramel flavors. Not too happy in a bad way. HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2016
341 ml bottle from a dépanneur in Gatineau.

Appearance: Pours an opaque dark brown with a bit of tanish head.
Pine, grapefruit, melon.
Pine, grapefruit, melon, lemon, biscuit.
Rich with average carbonation.
Overall: Really nice IPA with lots of the usual pine and grapefruit but it also has some malt biscuit coming through.
The malt in this smells and tastes not very good. It’s old and sweet and unpleasant. It’s too bitter and the red ale aspect just makes it less flavorful and less appealing. Beertobealive (576) - Courbevoie, FRANCE - DEC 6, 2015
Pours a very short beige head with deep hops and iron aromas. Clear Amber colored body. Balance is more achieved than with rescousse, with similar roasted grain flavors but compensated with high bitterness and hops.
