UPDATED: AUG 7, 2010 On tap at the brewpub. Taps a nice dark mahogany with a small beige head. The aroma is awesome, very American reminiscent in character, good piney cascade presence with some toffee malt backing it up. Flavour is much the same with some amazing balance. Delicious caramalt flavour with loads of bitter hop backing. Mouth-feel is perfectly prickly yet still slides down way too easily. I could drink boatloads of this stuff. Respectable rendition of an American IPA. If only this kind of IPA could be made readily available in Ontario... Quevillon (3159) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2009
At the brewpub on tap (12 oz), the first of November 2009. Honey red, good head. Resinous and bitter hop aroma, notes of spicy berries. Delicious taste of hops, notes of peaches, good bitterness caressing that is my palate. An IPA of high class! czar (9338) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2011

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2011 Aroma is very hop, and floral. Taste is hops with a good amount of bitterness. Caramel hints with fruit. Very enjoyable. Eructoblaster (4330) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Dark amber body with a thin off-white creamy head. Nice, complex malty/hoppy aroma with spruce, grapefruit, and pineapple hints. Sharp hoppy taste that carries fruity and subtle woody notes. Ends with a long, robust bitter finish. Very good IPA.

In short: A tasty and highly drinkable resinous and caramelized IPA.AleRider78 (1412) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2014
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Partly cloudy dark golden body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is strong and very hoppy with a hop signature that feels resinous, leafy and fruity. Body is full and nourishing but the remains highly sessionnable. Taste has a good rich caramel and a whole lot of bittering hops that are very resinous, slightly citrusy and tiny bit pine-tree. Straightforward and very effective example of the style. Hull Quebec is now another good place to get your North-American hop fix. Isn’t it annoying when people act like USA is not the only country in the world eh?
"Tried on tap at the BDT brewpub/restaurant. Nice deep amber colour with a fine sheet of head. Some lacing. Heavy on the hops, which I like. Citrus aromas and flavours. Has a sweet and peppery aftertaste. Not too bitter, really good mouthfeel. Like this one very much!" dandeman (1042) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
En cask - À la brasserie - le 31 mars 2016. Au nez on y perçoit de notes d’agrumes (pamplemousse, orange) Le liquide se présente ambré, ce qui est très foncé pour une IPA. La mousse est épaisse et dense. En bouche, le caramel ressort beaucoup et présente des notes de sucre d’orge. Les houblons sont représentés par les agrumes et une touche de résine de sapin. Servie en cask elle présente un corps puissant et rond, une texture crémeuse et une effervescence douce. Une bonne IPA avec une complexité dans la moyenne, une légère exagération des notes caramélisées, mais rehaussée par le service en cask MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2009
A few samples at the brewpub- A deep copper, pours a frothy eggshell cap. A hoppy nose consists of fresh leafy greens and floral notes. Pine and citrus meet caramel and rye. Tastes ultra hoppy, with good bitterness. Bublegum and caramel, orange and grapefruit, a bit of pine, Very good overall with good lengthy finish. Merci Larry, Merci Dom!

Draught at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep golden-orange with a small diminishing creamy white head. Nice aroma, it’s hoppy but also unique, along with lots of leafy hops there’s some sweet fruit, pepper, caramel malt and a hint of alcohol. Delicious flavour: Dry, slightly spicy hops along with some fruit, caramel malt and with a big bitter finish. Average bodied. Very good!
