COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bière légèrement plus alcoolisée aux reflets roux orangés à l'amertume prononcée et au nez floral. Ce classique anglais fut jadis concocté ainsi dans le but de faciliter l'exportation dans les colonies britanniques, entre autres aux Indes, d'où son appellation.

mcberko (17815) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2012
On tap at Apex, pours an opaque orange with a small beige head. Aroma of floral hops, citrus and doughy / biscuity malt. Flavour of leafy, grassy hops, orange peel, with a very pleasant grassy finish. Medium-to-full bodied with a very well-crafted flavour profile. Very nice.

Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2008
Amber-red colour. Cloudy, with a thick head. Hop aroma is rich with tropical fruit (mango, kiwi, cantaloupe). Rich, deep bitterness and stacks of fruit on the palate, plus a sweet underpinning that is mainly pale malt but with a firm, light crystal malt stickiness. A fat dose of yeast, long and pithy and Orvallish, adds complexity yet somehow avoids impeding the exceptional brightness of this beer. So rich, complex, bright and rewarding, this beer f’n rocks. Simply one of the best IPAs I’ve ever had.

yngwie (17049) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2016
On tap at Mondial de la bière Montréal 2015. An unclear, dark golden to amber colored beer topped by a small, off-white head. Citrusy, piney aroma with a wort-like, bready maltyness. Citrus, pine cones and a nice bitterness dominates the flavor, but there’s too much bready, caramel-ish malts in the back. Lacks a bit on bitterness too I think. Full body and a smooth and nice carbonation. Bitter, piney finish with a malty backdrop. Too much on the malty side this one, and I wouldn’t mind more bitterness either. 150611

argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Draft. Small beige head atop clear copper body. Aroma is medium sweet, orange/grapefruit, some bread. Taste is moderately sweet, orange, some pine/grapefruit, light bread/caramel. Soft medium body, light acidity.

3.2
Lubiere (13900) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2007
A reddish dark amber ale with a thin off white head. A nice hoppey aroma, with berries, and oragne notes. In mouth, a sweetish lactic malt, with caramel and floral hops, but a bit thin and short in mouth. On tap at Vices versa, Jan. 2007.

3.7
Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 26, 2010
@Mondial de la Bière 2010, Strasbourg - hazy blond colour with a solid pale beige foam left; fairly hoppy with notes of caramel and citrus, almond and honey; medium to full-bodied; fairly bitter but not in an aggressive way; long flowery and fruity notes in a lingering hoppy finish - balanced

3.5
hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2009
On tap at Capones. Poured a deeper and hazy amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of floral hops, citrus, and some earthiness. Tastes of the same.

4.1
Sammy (12197) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2007
West Coast style IPA from this up and coming brewpub eventually brewery. Samped at Mondiale 2007. Fresh, orange with a little head. Grapefruit nose. Orange citrus taste. Medium mouthfeel and very refreshing finish. Top 15% IPA.

3.7
j12601 (11706) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2012
On tap at the Hopfenstark Anniversary Party. Pours a clear gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Big bright and bold citrus hops all over the nose. Gorgeous and clean. There’s a faint background of thick malt hiding in there, sweet and biscuity. Medium bodied, the sweetness starts to pick up right away. Clean citrus hops, malt and a nice earthiness. Long pithy grapefruit with a bit of sweet malt. Nicely balanced overall, but a touch sweeter than I like for an IPA. Very tasty though.

3.2
rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2011
Draught at Vices & Versa, Montréal, QC.
Clear deep amber colour with small off-white head. Very mild soda like fruitiness and citrusness in aroma. Dark fruity hops, some bitterness and soda like sweetness in flavour. Bitterness in aftertaste.
