Six packs of this have recently re-appeared in Alberta and I snagged a couple ASAP. For the foreseeable future this is probably as close to anything from the Alchemist as we are likely to see here, a collaboration with the typically excellent Dieu Du Ciel that one can maybe imagine captures at least a little of the magic of the vaunted Heady Topper. A hazy bright yellow hue with a decent amount of creamy whitish head, the aroma meets one's expectations handily, a whole ton of mixed citrus (grapefruit, orange, lemon, lime), pineapple, passion fruit, and something sweeter like gummy candy or dried mango perhaps, although this sweetness really does not carry over much onto the palate. Smells super fruity but notable in its almost woody tannic dryness, although one certainly gets a decent dose of citrus flavor, particularly blood orange, tangerine, and lime. The aggressive hopping regime also offers up some toasted onion notes although these only add to the experience. Initially it was difficult to taste the malts but over time a little toast and light molasses emerge. Still remarkably dry from start to finish, which lets the hop flavors truly shine. Brilliant. A little pear emerging late. Medium bodied and well-carbonated. Glad I got 11 more of these to savor. Obviously one to consume in a timely fashion. A top three Canadian IPA choice for me, and the best bet for dry but vibrant citrus and tropical flavors.

A:
Pours a marigold yellow with a nice haze and a big beige head that settles rockily to a healthy, patchy film that is a half a finger or so at its biggest. Great retention; thin stringy lacing. Very nice.

S:
Amazing. Orange, lemon, pineapple, grapefruit, weed, passion fruit, some caramel.

T:
Nice dry west coast-tasting beer. Dry hop bitterness up front with some lemon rind, pine, earth, caramel.

M:
Medium bodied and dry with good carbonation and a medium finish.

O:
Damn fine American IPA.
If it wasn't for the fact that I logged Le Castor's Yakima IPA before this one this would have been the first time I had reviewed a Quebec IPA in which I hadn't thought it misleading to label the beer as an "American" IPA.
Looks lovely, smells heavenly. It tastes a lot less flagrantly citric than it smells but the über-dryness is actually a nice contrast I'd say. Palate-wise and in general this is a very, very good IPA.
Worthy of being a staple; worth seeking out.

look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottle poured into a pint glass

A-Hazy yellow pour with a good 2 inches of off-white foam. Glass wasn't the cleanest so I didn't notice a lot of lacing.

S- This has to be the most aromatic IPA I've ever had the pleasure to experience. The citrusy notes pop with huge grapefruit and tropical fruit tones. I'm not normally a hop-head but the nose on this beer really is fantastic.

T- A bit less citrusy than the nose would suggest, but still extremely pleasant and fruity on the tongue. There is a slight resinous and dry finish, but overall it doesn't have an extreme bitter taste. The hop profile really is more citrusy than straight up enamel destroyingly bitter which I can very much get behind.

M-A bit dry with medium carbonation.

O-Fantastic beer that I was pleasantly surprised by. Probably the best smelling beer I've ever had, and the tongue on it ain't bad either. If you have access to this beer you should definitely try it out.
