Single bottle obtained from Zyn wine merchants here in Calgary. Poured into a standard shaker pint glass. Color is a light orange-yellow amber with a subdued but very lacy off-white head. Aroma is sweet toffee malt along with fragrant medicinal hops and a Belgian-like fruitiness. Tastes rather unique, with some parallels to other DIPAs but also its own character ... I can see why the term "India" is omitted from the label description. Initial effect on the palate recalls a herbal cough drop, with a decent dose of floral alcohol and molasses. Evolves into something rather piney with a co-occurring bitter tangerine peel note and then finally moves into a fermented apple, woodland berry, and withered apricot fruitiness that lingers on the palate along with some earthy dry leaf. Moderately carbonated but still somehow zippier and lighter bodied than many uber-malty DIPAs. Crisp and dry, really, but manages to convey some big malt, herb, and fruit flavors. Stands out from the crowd and another interesting and enjoyable beer from this Quebec brewery.

Pours amber with a fading head.
Nose shows rich sweet malt with a little piny and resinous hops too. Some bready malt and golden syrup.
Similarly sweet flavours, loads of malt. Some booze and mild hops attempt to balance it out. A bit one-dimensional.
Could use more carbonation.

341ml bottle served in a snifter glass.

A: Pours clear orange color forming a medium bubbled and creamy white head. Medium to low retention forming lots of lingering lacings left in the glass

S: Caramel malts. Flowery hops. Lots of pine, grassy and bit citrus hops. A bit fruity and spicy. A bit of alcohol in the very end

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Caramel malts. Lots of flowery, pine and citrus hops. Good bitterness

M: Heavy body. A bit molasses too. Medium carbonation. Hoppy bitter aftertaste which is mainly pine

O: Good drinkability. Nice Canadian IIPA. It's pretty much what I would expect from an IIPA produced in Belgium, for instance ;)

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: It has a nice deep golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves very nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of floral hops, grass, some pine, light citrus, some spiciness and sweet caramelly malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some definite floral hops, some grassiness with piney resins, some citrus and sweet caramelly malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.
