Bottle: Poured a clear medium amber color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of green hoppy notes with nice floral hops aroma. Taste is also dominated by nice green floral hops with a medium sweet caramelized malt backbone. Body is about average with good carbonation. I was expecting a lot worse based on previous ratings and comments but it is actually quite well balanced with an enjoyable level of hops.

Bottle from Peluso in Montreal. From notes.

A - Poured bright with an orangey golden colour and mild carbonation. For what they claim is an unfiletered beer, this is lookin' pretty damn filtered. Two finger fluffy white head, minimal spotty lace and a film of retention.

S - Honey and grapefruit. Quite mild. Alcohol came out more as it warmed. Not overly impressive.

T - Much nicer than the aroma with a good hop burst in the flavour profile and lot's of honey, sweet syrupy fruits, sweet fruits, grapefruit, and pineapple. Much sweeter as it warmed with some alcohol present.

M - Decent bitterness for the style, good carbonation, fuller end of medium body.

O/D - Definitely not a great DIPA, but not a terrible one. Not exactly easy drinking though. Nothing stood out as overly positive and the alcohol was too noticeable for the ABV without a great hop character and too much sweetness. Wouldn't seek it out.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

picked up at a dep on parc a few days ago, the clerk said they got their first shipment that very day.

Look: Hazy straw, pour gives me three fingers of foamy off-white head that falls slowly, very nice lacing.

Smell: grapefruit, glorious hops, citrus, pine

Taste: is it the perfect DIPA? naw, overall well balanced but a bit piney for me

Mouthfeel: a tad under-carbonated

Overall: a good addition by one of my favourite canadian breweries
