4.2/5 rDev -1.2%
Purchased at the LCBO for around $12.00 for a 750ml bottle. Served at 4deg C in a tulip
A- Opens well and pours a high white head that lasts and lasts. Unfiltered. Good gold color
S- This is the only place that I find lacking an excellent beer. Very light. Yeast is really good. No hops at all.
T- Very yeasty. Tart. Hidden alcohol. A bit sour. Don't know why you call this an IPA when there are next to no hops.
M- Creamy. Low alcohol in the mouth
O- Very good. Will not buy again due to price point but it is a good beer. Well rounded and good balance. Overall a nice beer
This wonderful little beer went well with... Pepper encrusted pork loin with asparagus and carrots.

Pours a lovely straw that is almost gold with an enormous, prefect pristine white head that pours at three or four fingers and very slowly and clumpily settles to two.
Excellent retention; lots of sticky lacing.
Doughy with quite a bit of citrus. Lots of sweet, spicy yeast aromas, orange, herbs, nutmeg. Very nice.
Sweet, spicy, and hoppy. Lime rind, soap, pine, dirt, candi sugar, fresh grass, herbs.
Lovely. Creamy, velvety, coating feel with a medium body and a lingering herbal hoppy tingle.
Fabulous Belgian IPA.
This is a fine beer in general and would rank up with Houblon Chouffe in my book as far as this style goes. Pours gorgeous and is about as close to perfect as you can get in every way visually, it is very Belgian smelling and only hints at being hoppy. The taste is far more bitter than the nose but it still isn't super dry. It has a very herbal, medicinal European hop profile to it, though since the bottle lists American varieties maybe this is partially due to its being past its prime. Either way, I have never gotten to try a really fresh one but hope to someday.
Will have again; worth making an effort to try.

From a 750 ml bottle into a tulip. Bottle dated 2012-10-14 consumed 2013-09-28.
A: pours a slightly hazy golden with a high three finger head that slowly breaks down leaving fantastic lacing.
S:: has that Charlevoix nose, sweet breast yeast, fruits and there is hops present as well.
T: follows the nose, but the hops come forward more. The combination of hops and spice and sweetness is nice.
M: medium carbonation good mouth feel...creamy.
O: a nice beer, different than any Belgian IPA I've had. It is sweeter and fruitier. This is a second chance review for this beer, the first time I had it it was right after enjoying a Hibernus and it didn't stack up. Now, I have enjoyed it quite a bit and it was a pleasure to enjoy this with friends.
