pumpkinhead2 (930) - Longueuil, Quebec, - NOV 8, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2014 Bière jaune dorée, voilée de multiples petites particules, effervescence moyenne, large col blanc mousseux qui forme une belle dentelle sur les parois du verre. Arômes dominants de houblon floral et fruité (agrumes, ananas, pêche…), avec un peu de malt légèrement grillé, caramel, miel, sucre d’orge. Un beau nez, à la fois houblonné et sucré, mais rien d’extraordinaire, et ça manque un peu de complexité. En bouche, pétillement moyen, onctuosité au palais intéressante, consistance liquoreuse, huileuse, typique des bières bien houblonnées. Au goût, on perçoit d’abord un petit malté style sucre d’orge en entrée de bouche, mais il est rapidement tassé par un intense houblon floral aux accents de pamplemousse, et une forte amertume qui prend toute la place. Selon moi, cette bière manque clairement de richesse et d’équilibre, ça manque de malt, le houblon est trop intense et l’amertume est à la limite du tolérable. Mais, au fil des gorgées la langue s’habitue… disons donc que c’est une bière correcte, sans plus.

[Can (473ml)] Pours a slightly hazy gold with a large lasting frothy white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is papery, sweet and floral and finally, fruity. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, bread and light floral hops -- too sweet and not hoppy enough. Some alcohol present but not too bad. Medium bodied. Disappointing.

I enjoyed this bottle of Double IPA. It had a good kick and was flavourful. Got it in the mixture pack.

Can from LCBO. Pours in the glass. That’s all I know. Lights are off & I’m playing a video game & honestly who cares: ratebeer is turning into a ghost town. No ones rated this beer in 5 weeks. No one reads my reviews. There’s no here here. It’s an old school, malty bomb & stale hop double ipa. Slightly boozy, lots of sugar, some spiciness, a herbal tea finish. Do I recommend this? Hell no. But what does it matter. No one reads this stuff.

Canned. Hazy yellow-orange body, big white head. The aroma is very hoppy, the taste subdued but punchy.

punkska101 (2032) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2016 Can from local IGA grocery A: grapefruit, caramel, citrusy, a touch of biscuit, light buttery App: clear copper lasting white head and great lacing. T/p: med body with moderate long bitter finish. Soft to moderate carbonation. O: last time I’ve had it was a buttery mess, they almost cleared that. It’s more malt focused than what I like. A super cheap can, bought it 2.50 that said, I won’t be tempted to buy it again.

Smells sweet and sweet malts dominate the taste, along with pine, some dark fruit and floral notes. Looks great in the glass.

Arcanor (421) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 26, 2016
341ml bottle, best before 2016-11-10. Pour golden with a small foam of big bubbles that leave my sight pretty fast, like the other IPA from the same brewer. Aroma of butter (diacetyl), notes of malt and alcool. This beer is probably 20 days old and I don’t smell nether taste hops. Medium body, oily and average carbonation. Bitterness is there but metallic.

Cartoonkhaki (1285) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
Orangy hue with off white head. Strong hop nose with sweet malts. I found the flavour just overly sweet and a little syrupy. I didn’t notice the alcohol in any of it. Decent but not really a fan.
