Snappy citrusy hops develop plenty of resinous bitterness, as pale cereals are cushiony enough to support the alpha explosion until the very end. Intense for an American Pale Ale, but I can’t complain when such beautiful flavors are put together. What’s in a name?
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the hazy yellow gold.
-The body is crisp enough to make this an easy drinker and the sustained hop bitterness enhances the refreshment factor.
-The nose is very citrusy, and perhaps a tad milky. Couldn’t quite get my nose around that part of the beer too well...
-There are so few hop bombs in the province of Quebec; and this one is quenching too! APA or IPA? I don’t care. I want another pint.
Bottles, and on tap at V&V.
341mL thanks to JulienHuxley. Pours clear golden with a bunch of yeast chunkies after sediment is accidently dumped in. Probably should force carbonate these hoppy styles. Large, rockier, off-white head. Impressive retention. Soapy, webby lace. Nose is sugary kumquat, sharp walnuts, cinnamon, sharp apple pie. Taste is very nutty, dry, Brasil nut skins. Too bad. mabel (9787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014

Draught at Vices et Versa. Pours a very slightly hazy yellow-gold, quite bubbly, and with an average size lasting off-white head. Nice hoppy and fruity aroma. Flavour’s nice and hoppy, fruity, refreshing even. Long, dry bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Great stuff.
