UPDATED: DEC 27, 2012 The aroma is hops, underlying malts and some citrus and earthiness. The flavor is relatively balanced between the hops and malts, although it does lean towards the hops. Among the easiest drinking IPAs out there, a very solid IPA overall.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 27, 2011
Bouteilles de 355 ml. Armes de houblon citronn et floral, prsence de malt caramlis. Robe cuivre et limpide, peu de mousse et effervescence moyenne. En bouche, un houblon fruit et floral est accompagn par une prsence malte assez forte, montrant les notes caramlises typiques du malt crystal. Finale relativement sucre montrant une amertume dintensit moyenne. Lalcool est relativement apparent pour une bire qui nest pourtant pas si forte. Pas vraiment mon style dIPA.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2012 Re-rate 4/9/12: Bottle sample at a tasting at Rotems place. Thanks beerandbeyond. Hazy amber. Aroma of stale, slightly fruity hops and a bit of malt. Sweetish flavor with some malt and a mildly bitter hoppy finish. Medium-bodied. I know that this bottle as the same batch I rated before, its just older now, so new score isnt calculated in total. 5/3/6/3/12=2.9

Bottle. Hazy amber color with a medium off-white head. Aroma of piney and grapefruity hops, resinous notes and some cookie-ish malt. Flavor has some sweet maltiness, somewhat caramelly, but pretty quick turns very bitter, piney and somewhat grapefruity. Lingering bitterness. Medium-bodied. Nice. 7/3/7/3/14=3.4

White/off-white head, color of the body was light orange/red. Average/heavy hop aroma that produced citrus and slight lemon. Medium body palate that with smooth finish. Overall, there was nice hints of citrus and lemon hoppy flavor and aroma, with underlying coffee maltness. Excellent IPA, would definitely buy again.

This is a very good solid IPA from the brewery quickly closing in on my favorite brewery pick. This is well balanced with a good malt presence of an American IPA. I can compare it to Sierra Nevadas Torpedo with a better aroma. Good citrus fruits in the taste would pair extremely well at a backyard grilling party. I will be seeking this out again this summer.

Pine, fruit, malt in the nose. Taste follows, but with a mild sweetness. Nice bitter finish. Nothing really big here, just a solid brew.

A solid hoppy beer, at a reasonable price that my wife enjoys. The hops are present and fresh, yet not to bitter or overwhelming.
