At Bier Market Montreal. Winning me over as #2 in a flight. 7 Oz. Must visit.
A) Light golden yellow with a white head that lasts and laces tidal rings.
S) Aroma is citric, dank with fruit & mystery. (Which is good)
T) Unusual profile, the malt comes in force with caramel wood shop/ pine shellac finish. ‘
F) Medium carb and weight, but pleasant tickly peppery feel and finish. Unusual.
O) Quebecoise IPAs win by being different and more northern european.

Straw and slightly hazy with a little carbonation and 4 fingers of rocky, off white head.

Smells very fruity of pineapple, jackfruit, soursop and other tropical fruits.

The taste follows the nose and is even more complex, including more tropical fruits, and apples, pears, and oranges.

Medium body, with light carbonation.

I got this at Brou HaHa in Gatineau, Quebec and am drinking it in Muskoka, Ontario, Feb 18th, 2018. Excellent taste and great nose on this one.

750 cl bottle from Depanneur - pours slightly misty golden yellow - with lightcreamy head that dissipates quickly to leave a thinish film and light lacing. Aroma: honey, citrus, some pine. Flavour: piney resiney, citrusy grapefruit hops - honeyish tropical fruit - distinct carbonic bite.

Hazy pale yellow. Fluffy cloud that leaves nice lacing. Tropical nose, mango shines through. Tropical up front with a nice pine bitterness coming through in the end. Clean finish with a smooth all be it a touch soapy mouth feel.

It's a nice take on an IPA but not necessarily a memorable one.

8oz glass at Beer Revolution YEG Oliver Square - once upon a time, we would get the big bottles from this brewery out here first, but no longer is that the case.

This beer appears a hazy, pale golden yellow colour, with a very thin cap of wispy and faintly bubbly bone-white head, which leaves a few instances of ocean plume lace around the glass as things slowly recede.

It smells of juicy tropical fruit (pineapple, guava, kiwi, and passion fruit), grainy and crackery pale malt, and some understated leafy, weedy, and floral green hop bitters. The taste is slightly dank pine resin, muddled exotic fruit, further domestic citrus rind, bready and grainy pale malt, a lesser biscuity caramel sweetness, and more burgeoning leafy, herbal, and gently perfumed verdant hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly meek in its hard to discern frothiness, the body a solid medium weight, and mostly smooth, with the various hoppy esters making a small dent in the proceedings here. It finishes trending dry, even with the lingering tropical hops and malt persisting.

Overall, this comes across as a pleasantly earnest attempt at one of the current New World IPA incarnations - antipodean hops the vector chosen, apparently. Fruity and quite easy to drink, it's always nice to re-establish my connection with this Quebecois operation.

750ml cork and cage bottle poured into a wine glass

A- pours a murky golden color with a one-finger head that has geed retention after the pour

S- smells of juicy tropical hops; pineapple, mango, guava, grapefruit, with light undertones of toasted malt, very nice

T- hops aren't as strong in taste, big notes of toasted malt up front. Mid-palate does bring out some tropical juiciness; mango, passionfruit & pineapple. The finish is dry with a linger of toasted cracker malt and tropical hops

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a murky finish

O- was pleasantly surprised by this one, every Canadian IPA i've had up to this point drank like a mundane pale ale, this one is bordering on American east coast style

Appearance - Poured from a 750 into a teku, This beer poured the color of peach juice, it is extremely hazy with 2 fingers of white bubbly head that fade into a thick lacing over the top. Carbonation is moderate and is replenishing the lacing. This one is good looking IPA.

Aroma - A mix of citra chinook, simcoe and centennial hops are giving this a beautiful fruit juice aroma up front. Mango and Pineapple are up front some orange peel Grapefruit rind, a very light earthy dankness behind that but this is a juice bomb on the nose. behind that I am also getting some light grain and caramel from the caramelised wheat in the mash. This is the second time I'm saying this in a review today but this is a beatiful NE style nose. I'm getting lucky lol.

Taste - Up front you are getting the more bitter citruses but being only a 40 IBU IPA they are light. I'm getting grapefruit lemon and some orange peel up front. The wheat and caramel then pop in with a sweet zest kick and the sweeter citruses hit the back of the tongue for a smooth finish I'm getting mango and pineapple predominately,

Feel - This one seems to be on the lighter side of medium and you get a very light creamy feel with extremely light prickling. I just drank a beer I think had a slightly better feel and it may be affecting my rating but just know this is a really great feel still. I am genuinely enjoying this one.

Overall - I just tried this back to back with Microbrasserie vox populi's vox pop (citra) IPA. Truth is I like elements of each beer better but overall I think vox pop is better. others may disagree because the margin is so close. This is a really great example as a New England IPA none the less. Its color to cloudiness were spot on, the head could have been a little better but that's a small complaint. The Aroma is a beautiful array of citrus fruits and so is the flavor, I love the way they incorporated the caramel and wheat using carawheat. The feel is a little on the light side but when I say a little i mean a little. this is where I'm saying the other beer might be throwing me off. its still a little creamy and still very smooth. Try it if you see it you wont be disappointed!

Cloudy and veiled golden color with moderate activity, gets murky with the yeast. Thick creamy, frothy and rocky, white 3-4 finger sparkling head, lasting around 20 minutes, with generous legs. Flavors of pineapples, passion fruits, mangos, lemon, caramel, sweet grains, wheat, floral spices. Slick and smooth medium body that gets to full with the yeast drop, a bit silky, with extra crispy carbonation. Medium to strong strength finish, sharp and clean, light pine and leaves, delicate tropical fruits and sugary caramel malts, soft clove and butter, peppercorn, sharp yeast and flowery spices. Nice intensity and very accessible. Inviting fruity feel, no harsh tongue coat. Perfect representation of a well balanced single IPA, delicate and complex while highly flavorful. With the yeast drop it gets sharper and zestier, more dry and piney. Delicious with a satisfying body. Super refreshing. Highly recommended IPA, up there with Auval. Overall exquisite quality craft.
