wombat23 (1417) - Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2017
Draft at Hopfenstark Station Ho.st, Montreal. Aroma of citrus and caramel. Taste is citrus, caramel, tea and pine. More malty than the average APA, but decent.

Stoned99 (1552) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 2, 2016
Sampled at Bières et Saveurs. Aroma: strong grapefruits, caramel, light citrus. App: hazy copper, small off frothy white head, great lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, watery, light sweetness, light bitter finish. Overall: too malted and sweet for me. Way too sweet. Old school ipa. Would have been ok on 2004. Not so much in 2016.

yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2016
On tap at Mondial de la bière Montréal 2015. It’s an unclear, dark golden colored beer topped by a small, off-white head. Caramel-malty nose with some wort and bread, and some piney, citrusy hops. It’s medium bodied, soft and nicely carbonated, with a decent bitterness. Citrusy, lightly grassy hops on a backdrop of bready, caramel-ish malts. Soft bitter finish with citrus notes and too much malt flavors, just like in the aroma and the initial flavor. Else it’s a fine and flawless brew. 150611

HogTownHarry (6834) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2015
October 20, 2013 - gravity cask at Cask Days 2013. Orange pour, cloudy, with a small bubbly off-white head. Aroma and taste of pineapple, mango, citrus zest with emerging pine bitterness - very smooth, minimal alcohol presence; solid body, decent cask carbonation, borderline sweetness never emerges after the slow-building medium bitter finish kicks in - good beer.

Meilby (11495) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2015
Draught @ Mondial de la bière Montréal 2015, Montréal, QC
Pours hazy golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus and grape. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long malty, caramel, citrus and grape finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

kaser (6312) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Cloudy orange pour. Tangerine and apricot notes - full flavor. Had this on draft at the Hopfenstark brewpub. Enjoying a good pale ale.

3.3
cargo150 (1289) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2014
Liquide dorée-ambré avec un col mousseux respectable. Nez floral, d’agrumes et de caramel. En bouche c’est un peu a l’aspect métallique avec un beau mélange de pamplemousse de caramel et une belle touche floral. Corp moyen, carbonation moyenne, une finale assez amère. Une pale ale hors de l’ordinaire qui a quelques défauts mais sans plus!

3.4
fhoublon (461) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
Dégustée (en fût) le 30 mai 2013 au Mondial 2013 à Montréal (D3C3K424i). Bière limpide blonde dorée. Col mince peu durable. Peu effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur de pamplemousse marquée. Très douce, très peu sucrée, un peu amère. Saveur de pamplemousse bien présente, de résine (pin). Un peu acide mais pas trop. Bonne en son genre.

3.7
j12601 (11831) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 20, 2013
On tap at Station Ho.st. Pours a lightly hazed golden amber with a medium to large white head. A little bit of a dusty paper note on the nose, with some musky hops behind it all. Medium bodied, soft muskiness over some dusty malt. A bit of sage and lemon. Soft musk into the finish. Tasty.
