Bottle from a Montreal beer store. Pours a clear amber color with a medium white head. A sweet citrus and biscuit nose. A smooth fruity hop flavor, not bitter, toasted malts, caramel. Enjoyable. pushkinwow (2962) - Ottawa, CANADA - MAR 10, 2011
341ml bottle. Pours a clear amber with no head or lacing to speak off. Very light floral and hops aroma. Not offensive or pleasing on the palate, thin bodied with nice carbonation, not much in terms of complexity but better then the macros. Butters (4062) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Sampled side by side with the golding pale ale. I love the teaching benefits of these types of beers, but on their own, there’s nothing too special. Sweet citrusy light piney. Semi bitter finish. A little thin on the palate. Definitely tastier than the golding though. Roli (406) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 12, 2011
341ml bottle. Amber body with a small beige head. You really feel the cascade hop in this one, and all the agrumes flavors misex with it. Sweet malt but with a decent bitterness. Fizzy and alcohol is noticeable. An enjoyable experience. Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2011
341ml bottle. highly carbonated brew with a super clean coppery colour to it. I found it had a real soapy character. very floral, some carbonation on the nose as well. there is a funky note. I think this bottle is off. hoppy greenish notes on the palate leaves alot to be desired. i think it is over carbonated which amplifies the leafy hoppy notes but does nothing for the malted aspect of this brew. it feels disjointed.

341ml bottle. Clearish copper pour with a frothy eggshell head that leaves a solid lace. The nose is dominated by a barnyard feel with some good floral hop notes underneath and a soapy quality. Odd. Fairly tame in the mouth with a high carbonation. The finish is lingering hop bitterness. A bit of a disappointment. Possibly an off bottle. richardtempura (16) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2011 Nice resin nose, a bit floral.
Some sugars and vanilla come out also. No yeast on the nose.
Opaque red with little carbonation.
Thick white head that rapidly dissipate, but lingers on top.
Nice bitterness, not to pronounced.
Nice maltiness to balance the hops.
Nice mouthfeel, thick and creamy.
Finish is medium, but the hops cling to your tongue; nice!
Nice beer, the best IPA/Pale Ale Simple malt has to offer! vtafro (7451) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Bottle, thanks rciesla for sharing. Brown pour with tan head. Hints of citrus and light fruit, some reminisce of citrus and tart fruit, oxidation and paper like malt tones. Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2010
Bottle thanks Colin and Kendra! Nice citrus and malt aroma. Looks great - glowing murky orange, small thick white head. Great citrus taste and huge bitterness up front. Really sharp bitterness throughout and long linger as well. A bit of burning alcohol. Yep, a very solid IPA with my favourite hop. DeanF (2647) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2010
Very nice foggy amber and a good light beige head on top. Decent IPA aroma, and a decent IPA taste. There’s little outstanding about this one, but it is an okay IPA.
