Bottle: Poured a light golden orangey color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of citrus notes is quite intense with a little bit of piney notes and some tropical fruity notes in there as well. Taste is a great mix between some citrus, tropical fruit and some piney notes with a lightly sweet malt backbone and almost no bitterness. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation. Very enjoyable and something I will drink again.

341ml Bottle from Brouehaha QC for $3

Appearance - Slightly hazy dark gold colour with an average size fizzy off white coloured head. There is a below average amount of carbonation and there is some fair/good lacing. The head lasted for 5 minutes.

Smell - Malts, caramel, apricots, grapefruit, hops

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste hops, malts, and caramel. There is also apricots and grapefruit/oranges. The beer ends with a very hoppy bitterness.

Overall - Lots of hop bitterness. A fantastic addition to the growing number of west coast tasting IPAs from Quebec. A little along the lines of the Headstock IPA by nickelbrook.

The bottle caught my eye at Depanneur Peluso.

341ml bottle to tulip, hazy golden orange with tons of big yeast bits floating around! You can smell the yeast when you open the botte. 2 finger lumpy head, but less retention than i expected. Some decent lacing rings and spots though.

N: Lots of citrus and tropical fruits, orange peels, papaya, apricot. Funky yeast odors, and some malt in the background.

T: Delicious tropical fruit, melon, papaya, blood oranges. Very unique hope profile on this beer. Very yeasty as well.

M: Below average carbonation for an IPA, but allows for better tasting capabiities. The yeast bits are a bit excessive though, im not talking about lees, i mean big white chunks and you can kind of feel them going down. It doesn't bother me, but if you're new to craft beer it might take you by surprise.

O: Brasseurs de Montreal aren't my favorite from Quebec, however they outdid themsevles with this, I'll have to try the rest of their jukebox collection now!
