Overall: carbonation is over the top (it should not be that high). This is how I like my APAs though: not sweet and hop forward. The choice of hops could maybe make this product shine more as I believe that these hops are not meant to be showcased as aroma hops but more for their bittering properties. Bitterness level is just fine though, cleans the palate alright. Nice packaging too now, these 375ml bottle are made for homebrewers: labels peel easily and the bottles themselves are nice looking.

On tap at GCBF. Pours an orange/brown with light head. Aroma of malt and lemon furniture polish. Flavors of yeast, light malts, a bit of spice and vegetable notes. BeerGolem (828) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle 375 ml. Bought at Peluso (Montreal). Pours clear amber with medium creamy beige head. Some lacing. Lot of bobbles. Aroma: grapefruit, hops, slight caramel. Taste has a very strong earthy bitterness (too much for my taste). Spicy finish. Long aftertaste. Dry finish. More like an IPA than an APA it seems to me. Ok beer, not much more... mcberko (17840) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
On tap at Brouhaha, pours a hazy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma of light biscuity malt and lightly floral hops - very subtle. Flavour is pretty standard for an APA, with some biscuity malt and slight honied notes. Light-bodied and unobtrusive, but not overly refreshing or pleasant. OK.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2012 Les notes herbacés classique aux interprétations Québécoises de ce style de bière m’agace un peu mais bon...ça semble être la norme. Les agrumes et la mangue sont également présentes mais en support seulement. Une amertume générique vient couvrir le tout. Correct

750 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits (Halifax). Pours a clear orange/amber with large, slightly sticky, ivory-coloured head. Aroma is citrusy/floral hops, caramel and some graininess. Flavour is lemon and floral hoppy notes, caramel and graininess/breadiness. Modest bitterness in finish. Solid. CapFlu (5127) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2012
(750ml bottle) Purchased at Cook Street Liquor Store in Victoria for around $9. Pours a very large almond-coloured head atop an orange body. Nose is very testy amongst the strong hops. Nice take but far cry from the APA style; usually has higher ABV too. Very enjoyable.

Drank a small bottle of this while barbecuing up some pork and it was pretty good. There isn’t a hell of a lot going on, but no hop bomb either. Just subtle perfume essence at the aftertaste. Decent lacing, pours amber clear. Small bottle from Peluso. tom10101 (6084) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle (375 ml). Clear golden/orange with a medium off-white head and some lacing. Aroma of citrus, malt and herbal hops. Taste is earthy with citrus and malt. Sticky herbal bitterness. I don’t like these earthy/herbal APA... I prefer citrus bombs. Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
Pours clear golden with high creamy beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of citrus, malt, sweetness. Taste is of malt, citrus, sweet. Overall: Bitter finish, good body. Good, fair APA. Somewhat sweet, but not bad balance.
