(Bottle). Hoppy aroma, without much fruitiness. Orange amber color with gigantic fluffy white head. Flavor is tart, musty, bitter, and distinctly unpleasant, with little of the usual IPA citrus appealing character. Spab (4002) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2008
Draught at brewpub. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of floral hops and some grass. Same things come through in the taste. Slightly bitter finish. EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2008
En fût à la Barberie. La bière se présente avec une robe cuivrée et une mousse modeste qui reste . Au nez on découvre des arômes d’huile de houblon et de caramel. En bouche le corps est mince-moyen et les flaveurs sont le houblon floral et le caramel. Dorwart (2607) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2008
Great big light and fluffy head of varying sized bubbles. Light orange aroma with some floral hops, dry grassy malts and a bit of spice. Color is a dark golden orange. Very fizzy in the mouth. Light and fruity flavor with a clean palate. Some bitter hops presence but not overwelming. Dry and bitter finish with some grapefruit rind and some herbal notes. An ok IPA but way too carbonated.

This is the best India pale ale on the market. Bonne amertume. Couleut legerement orangé.

.5 liter bottle- started gushing a bit after opening. Pours a very light gold- relatively clear with a slight haze- massive infectious head -cobwebby looking. Aroma is phenolic, wierrd dirty infection, but not typical brett, with some hay and grass- almsot no hop character. Flavor is pretty lifeless and bland- light stale cracker and dough, with earth, dirt, cobwebs, and a vegetal character- has a lemony tangy bitterness in the end. goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 22, 2008
The bottle foamed out a little. Lightly hazed with small chunks. Gold with a large off-white head. The aroma is light with a mild citrus and touch of malt. Citrusy flavor with a long dry bitterness. The body is light and the mouthfeel is too lively and carbonated. VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2007
500 ml bottle - pours an opaque amber colour with a masssssssive fizzy off-white head. Weird aroma of hops, sure, but there’s almost as much brown sugar, maple syrup(!?) and alcohol. Flavour odd too, not much hoppiness, bland, mainly a malt-bomb. Kind of thin and one-dimensional. Astringent bitter finish. Like no other IPA I’ve had, thankfully. Much like Shakira, the only thing this has going for it is looks. guil0000 (433) - New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 6, 2007
Poors a golden amber color.. bottle of 500ml... Smell was pretty dull in my opinnion, but flavour was suprising pretty good. light caramel flavour.A bit of a bitter finish OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2007
Sample from 500 ml bottle. Golden amber colour with a fizzy off-white head. Light caramel and citrus aroma. No malt backbone to speak of, just a grassy, lightly metallic bitter finish. Light bodied, dry mouthfeel. More malt please - of course if it had more malt then it would need more hops too because I’m sure what hoppiness it does have would disappear with the least bit of maltiness. So all in all just a poor attempt at an IPA.
