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

Poured from a 341ml bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.
** NOTE: The brewery lists this beer as an APA not an IPA (for what it’s worth) **

A: Golden copper color and a bit hazy. Pours to a massive light tan bubbly head. The head settles very slowly and thickens as it does leaving behind impressive amounts of lacing.

S: Very malt forward on the nose, a pleasant sweet caramel. The hops are still present though with a bit of tropical fruit (pineapple?), some nice spiciness and a touch of citrus.

T: As the nose predicted, it is malty from the start, sweet and bready and a touch earthy. There is very good balance from the hops though starting off spicy (pepper) but also lots of citrus. The bittering hops dry out the malt character for the finish which is long and dry.

M: Medium body and medium-hi carbonation; very smooth, round and creamy.

O: The great appearance and smell is delivered in the taste, definitely one of the best APA from Quebec! L'Intradite is not a palate-wrecker and some hopheads may find it not agressive enough, but this a great *balanced* beer, one that is underrated here.

Less than a month old bottle.

A: Pours hazy light amber color with a huge pure white frothy head with tons of volume and retention. Lacing is great too. Really good looking beer.

S: Smells of west coast hops, chalky, pine resins, orange peel and unsweetened grapefruit. Light malty sweetness. Well rounded.

T: The chalky character is predominant. Still you get the citruses and all the good stuff that you get from usual west coast style ipas.

M: Very light and fluffy. Super refreshing.

O: well, one of the very few american style IPAs that is made in Quebec. It has its faults, but it still a solid brew that is worth trying if you're looking for something refreshing.

An excellent homage to Dogfish Head and one of the nicest Quebecois APA's I've enjoyed thus far.

Pours a hazy amber with a decent off-white head and lacing; it's a good looking beer. The delightfully hop-forward aroma has a respectable caramelized malt backbone supporting the citrus and tropical fruit tones. Likewise the taste has enough malt body to balance the "american" hop cornucopia. Grapefruit and mango plus a nice pine spiciness to the finish, that lingers...

Fresh, this is an absolutely excellent APA!

Another treat courtesy of joemcgrath27...

A - Pours a hazy copper colour with a brown hue, finger of head with decent retention and some sporadic lacing.

S - Citrus hop notes are subdued by musty caramel malts and hints of

T - Sour citrus rind hop notes accompanied by some musty caramel, sour dough bread, and a surprising citrus bitterness that lingers.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and dry on the finish.

O - A tasty IPA, though heavier on the malts. If you like a more balanced IPA this one fits the bill, though the hop profile could be a bit more vibrant. Easily enjoyable and easily sessioned, and well worth a try.

341ml bottle. I like the Prohibition associations, especially for a Canadian brewery. Also where have I heard the term 'hopped for 90 minutes' before? Where o' where?

This beer pours a clear, medium copper amber hue, with three fingers of fizzy, foamy, and bubbly ecru head, which leaves a nice array of fuzzy cloud ceiling lace around the glass as it steadily sinks out of sight.

It smells of warm caramel, kind of biscuity malt, quite weighty in its bearing, some sour, fruity vinegar notes, and weirdly shrouded citrus and piney hops. The taste is more warm, simmering caramel/toffee maltiness, a sour, expired dark fruitiness, some musty, earthy yeast notes, and stunned leafy, citrusy, and piney hops.

The carbonation is pretty laid back, but not out of it altogether, the body a sturdy medium weight, and a bit too astringent, from stale fruit juice and suppressed hops alike, to be deemed all that smooth. It finishes off-dry, the warming, sour biscuity caramel blend now the norm, after a more than subtle reassessment of expectations, and the bitter hops still pungent, I suppose, but inwardly wondering who usurped all their latent powers.

Hmmm. A rather sideways, and weird IPA, especially one that touts a nicely rounded 100 IBUS. The standout attribute here, ironically, isn't the bitterness, but the tart, sour character that I can't quite come to associate with hops. Maybe those tipped-over barrels got some sort of infection from the dirty feds who did the deed all those years ago. Anyways, drinkable enough, but not the typical hop-bomb you might be anticipating.
