Bottled on June 20, 2016. Drank on June 23, 2016. Were talking about an IPA inspired by a game-changing experience of tasting Stone IPA according to one of the brewers. This is what inspired this beer. Aroma is bergamot, grapefruit and pine. Taste brings bergamot, grapefruit, mango, pine, spicy greenness, which conflates with mango pepperiness. Light honey and some kind of sweetness from iconic West Coast IPA (Stone, AleSmith), a bit mineral and sandy la Sculpin IPA. Malt profile seems more mineral, more natural, less sugar-forward than Stone IPA. Overall: an impressive product acknowledging the sole use of organic ingredients and the IPA offering out there. Mad props.

Beardbeerman (341) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2016 Pours a cloudy gold, topped by a huge frothy bright white island, showing great retention and leaving big lacing. Very lively carbonation. The nose is very aromatic with grapefruit, pineapple, some piny notes, lemon zest and mango. Malts are there, but are pretty subtle. On the tongue, the brew explodes with tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, citrus and lots of grapefruit. Light sweetness, both in the nose and in the taste, in the form of light caramel. Piny bitterness that lingers through the long finish. Medium body, but notable piny oiliness. Very good IPA. Cheers!

La Yakima, pour moi, cest le standard, cest ce que je mattend une IPA. Le Castor nous livre avec cette bire ce qui devrait tre une bire dentre pour tout amateur de bire qui veut dcouvrir ce quest une IPA de qualit. Lquilibre entre le houblon et lamertume est rellement un chef doeuvre de la part de la brasserie de Rigaud. Cest un peu rsineux, un peu tropical, jamais dans les extrmes, toujours dans la subtilit. Buvabilit excellente. bravo au Castor pour nous livrer cette bire classique lanne, en tout temps et pour toujours je lespre!

Bierdimpfe (624) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2016
Hazy dark golden, almost amber color, with powerful activity. Thick foamy and creamy beige 3 finger island head, lasting more than 30 minutes, with super strong legs. Aromas of fresh piney citrus and straw. Flavors of fruits like pineapple, melon with some citrus like orange, lemon including floral and herbal spices. Pleasant fruity sweetness with a sharp crispy fresh grassy feel. Slick medium body with champagne like carbonation. Well intensified strong finish of medium length, ending with some sweet citrus and a nice spicy hoppy feel. Overall an awesome beer with incredible visuals and inviting smell. Delicious complex flavors and a well balanced finish with a super refreshing feel being not too excessive.

Couleur Or/Pale, mince mousse qui recouvre le liquide avec une bonne rtention. Odeur de lime, citron doux, orange et pin. En bouche, lorange, le pin, suivi dun petit up pics qui fini par un cot malt pour ressortir un cot sche et franc en finale! Excellente!

Diogne (1207) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2016
Robe lgrement orange et surmonte dune norme mousse blanche qui affiche une tenue exceptionnelle. Lorsquelle est frache, elle offre de merveilleuses notes dagrumes, en passant du pamplemousse, lorange sanguine, lananas, au cantaloup, de pche et une lgre touche de conifres. En bouche les mmes saveurs sont prsentes avec des armes de houblons fruits explosifs et une base de malt ple bien adquate et se terminant par une finale qui combine une amertume sans excs et une pointe dalcool. Sans doute la meilleure IPA au Qubec, elle maximise les armes de houblon sans sombrer dans une amertume excessive.
