Bière cuivrée aux arômes floraux de houblon frais. En bouche, le palais est envahi par une franche amertume puis est soutenu par le malt et le houblon. La finale est très longue et toute en houblons.

500 mL bottle, bottled 21 March, 2012. Fruity citrus hop aroma and a thick, stable ice cream head. Yellow-amber colour and pretty fizzy. The aroma was the best part, though... Can’t say much about the flavour beyond its bitterness and a weird sour tang. It’s really mostly bitter; I can’t detect maltiness or much body or anything besides this sour water flavour. Disappointing. Hoping this was a bad batch or something... The reviews I see on here are quite mixed.

500 ml bottle. Pours an orange amber with a nice white head. Smells hoppy. Taste is herbal, somewhat floral. Cereals are perceptible. Nice bitterness in the finish, although could be more pronounced. Body is watery, carbonation is weak. Somewhat light for an IPA, but it was quite easy-drinking and may be a nice, inoffensive introduction to the style.

cask at the brewpub - This hazy light orange beer smells of grapefruit accented hops. That’s the good part. The flavor is weird. There’s some hop bitterness, very weak malt, and a dirty sock funk that’s just not right. Is it just badly unbalanced? No, I think this beer is infected. What a shame to be serving it on cask at the brewpub. Simply unacceptable.

Bouteille 500 ml. 5%. Couleur jaune cuivrée, mousse blanche abondante. Goût de houblon, céréale et malt. Finale avec un eamertume correct. Bonne.

Bière trouble et floconeuse de couleur de miel coiffée d’un ample col crème. Des arômes lactés et herbacés où on peine à trouver les parfums de céréales. Belle amertume, unidimentionnelle, toutefois. Belle texture lisse, de corps moyen, elle laisse une fin amère et aromatique en bouche.

I would describe this as a bit of a light IPA in that the malt is fairly light and the bitterness is mild. Nevertheless well balanced, very drinkable and enough hop bitterness that it does not disappoint. Not a desert island IPA but a decent one nontheless.

Nice hop flavor. Bright, crisp. Hops predominate, malt is in 2nd place, crisp, bright beer. A fresh beer for fresh drinkers. Nice beer!

Tap at the brewery, 2010 version in cask. Good beer, with exceptional aroma. It smells of caramel, grass, apricot, and oak. Taste is sweet, with balancing bitterness. Palate is oily, with a thin-to-medium body. Amber, with a frothy head.

Le liquide est orange. Belle tête mousseuse avec une assez bonne rétention. Quelques traces sont collées sur les parois du verre. Au nez, présence modérée à forte de parfums floraux et résineux. Quelques pointes herbeuses, peut-être le résultat d’un houblonnage à sec. Les arômes de grains maltés sont aussi présents mais beaucoup moins expressifs que les houblons. Au goût, pas très différent de ce qu’on a pu découvrir dans les arômes : les saveurs des houblons sont modérément fortes et le malt se fait plutôt timide. En bouche, malgré une trop forte explosion des bulles, le liquide possède une structure convenable et une texture qui me semble être huileuse. La finale se fait sur une amertume convenable, voire juste assez longue et quelque peu astringente.
