Tap at brewpub. Pours light orange lots of head and miles of thick lacing. These guys know how to make their beer look good. Nose is quiet. Notes are pretty heavy on the fruity side, lots of Peach and some light give-alive. Light citrus bitterness. Taste is light/medium Sweet and light bitter. Somewhat creamy body with medium carbonation.

lefossoyeur (609) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2011
Sorachi Ace batch at Soire des Brasseurs 2011 in Shawinigan. Deep orange blonde topped by a whitish head. Nice aromas of bitter orange and pepper. Low to medium body, medium bitterness, a little thin for an IPA, but the finale is very refreshing. More an APA in my opinion with its low bitterness in the mouthfeel, but still a very satisfying ale.

Appearance : Slightly hazy with a small creamy head. Nice lacing.
Aroma : Great floral and citrusy hops. Nice tropical fruits. Fresh and fruity.
Taste : Light caramel with nice malt and floral hops. Nice fruity notes. Resinous and bitter. A bit sticky on finish.
Overall : Intensely hoppy but rather drinkable. Nice tropical fruits coming from the cirta. Not too much caramel. Very well made.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2013 Verre de 10 oz, au Siboire, version Citra. Trs beau nez de houblon rappelant les fruits tropicaux et les fleurs. Robe ambre et lgrement trouble, petite dentelle et effervescence assez faible. Assez mince en bouche, de douces crales caramlises supportent le houblon fruit, moyennement aromatique. Texture lgrement aqueuse. Finale assez sche, prsentant une amertume rsineuse dintensit moyenne. Une bire intressante et facile boire.

MartinT (9653) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2011
My Bottom Line:
Pears and citrus fruit aplenty garnish this IPAs plump cereals, taking you to a potent resinous bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the amber-y mist.
-This was very drinkable, but the flavor profile didnt feel as polished as most Siboire brews.
-The resinous bitterness felt a little too coarse for my liking. The same aroma and flavor profile could have lead to a friendlier finish for more drinkability.
-The aromatic potential of this hop variety is truly wonderful.

On tap at the brewpub, as Inspiration 11 (100% Citra).

On tap at the brewpub. Copper colored pour with thin white head heavy lacing. Aroma is piney with pink grapefruit, a bit of earth too. Taste is very bitter, lots of piney hops, very hop forward, deliciously unbalanced. Palate is very dry, some alcohol presence. Good IPA.

Sammy (11772) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2010
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Sheets of lace, a white head on an orange tintedbody with lots of lace left. Hoppy aromas from Williametic. Carbonation right there. Decent IPA but would like a more agreeable mouthfeel. ome orange taste.
