En ft la source en compagnie de Marc-Andr. On mapporte cette pinte qui ressemble vritablement une coupe de crme glace qui se stabilise peu peu en une bire tout de mme ple. Armes et saveurs de litire chat, de houblon Citra simple en feuille et de gaz fumigne aux notes trs ariennes. Plutt mince au palais malgr son ct fort crmeux et azot. Une amertume moyenne douce sinstalle alors que des saveurs vertes dominent sans rellement occuper tout lespace. Bien mince, sans arrire-got mais sans rel avant-got non plus, une IPA qui je crois, me plat surtout pour son gaz.

On tap (16 oz) at the brewpub. Hazy yellow with a thick creamt white head, good retention, leaving heavy lacing. Aroma features plenty of juicy tropical fruits (mostly mangoes and grapefruits) along wheat, mild spiciness as well as resinous and grassy notes. Taste is juicy and tropical with wheat, mild floral notes and spiciness, resinous notes and moderate bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Thick and creamy mouthfeel. Juicy finish. Like MartinT wrote, it really has a smoothie mouthfeel. Extremely easy to drink and to enjoy.

MartinT (9617) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Tropical fruit galore spread their juices all over this IPAs smoothie-like softly nitrogenated mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam sits on the misty yellow gleam.
-Drinkability is very high.
-Nitrogen doesnt hinder the hop aroma at all and even smoothens the bitter finish.
-Tropical fruit character spans from mango to pineapple, from starfruit to citrus of all kinds.

On tap at IBU festival, Montral.

Plusieurs verres au Cheval. Superbe bire orange un peu trouble avec une mousse blanche. Un nez poustouflant dagrumes, de pamplemousse. La bouche bien constitue par des malts qui supportent cette dose faramineuse de houblons aromatiques aux agrumes. Le seigle apporte une fraicheur dconcertante. Une bire boire grande lampe.

Blonde voile de bonheur. Nez puissant de houblons fruits. La bouche est tropicale, un peu mince, mais foutrement satisfaisante en saveurs. Le bonheur? Oui!

Cette bire ple et presque laiteuse est bien ravissante avec sa mousse paisse et sa dentelle bien travaille. Au nez, les houblons sont aromatiques et sen donnent coeur joie. Des parfums dananas partagent un espace considrable avec un bouquet de pamplemousses. Les crales blanches et jaunes offrent un positionnement loigne de la douceur. Au got, les houblons transpirent des saveurs fruites assez intenses. Un cocktail tropical bien impressionnant. Lamertume reste bien modeste tandis que la base malte reste blanche, craquante et bien sche. Je ne sais pas o se cache le 6.3% dalcool. Cette bire se boit toute seule. En bouche, le corps est visiblement lger. Son ptillement est vivant et sa texture indniablement douce. La finale est peu intense en amertume, sche et explosive en fracheur et en fruits tropicaux. Une superbe bire de soif. la hauteur de quelques bires bues chez Hill Farmstead.
