Tap at The Festival in Portland, there it was called Disco Soleil.

Faint hazy golden orange color, light whispy head.

Nose brings light floral and fruity hops, a generic stone fruit like aroma, fruity all around.

Taste is also floral light tropical fruit and fruity hops, nice stone fruit flavor and a bit citrusy, light sweet syrupy with hint of possible funk, bready, quite bitter.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb.

On tap at the brewpub, billed as an IPA with cumquats. Poured light for the style and the nose and flavor both belied the alcohol content--very crisp, very American, lacking the heavy back-end bitterness of most of the Quebecois pales that I've sampled. Cumquattiness was present but I probably wouldn't have recognized it for cumquats without being prompted by the chalkboard; it's more of a general fruit spriteliness that gives the beer an air of an American west coast IPA, only with nicer malt start and more balanced than your usual west coast IPA.

Had at Dieu du Ciel brewpub in montreal on tap.

L- Nice orange color and head, a pretty classic, but great looking IPA
S- West coast hops, citrus peel bitterness, very fresh, light and balanced malt smell
T- Strong hop bitterness along with citrus notes, but also citrus peel bittnerness. Strong but smooth and refreshing.
M- Good mouthfeel with a nice level of carbonation.
O- Another great beer from DDC and pretty different and interesting.
