3.66/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a teku, This beer pours a light orangy amber color, It is slightly cloudy but light can get through the head is a foamy 2 fingers and just off white. The head looks nice but the coloring is not the most appealing to me.

Aroma - There is a wheat kick on the nose almost immediately and it is followed by a sweet caramel malt. there is an apricot and passion fruit aroma but I found the grapefruit is quite subdued. This nose reminds me of a strong English IPA and I would say this is a very borderine American as far as aromas are concerned.

Taste - Ok this is where it becomes more american, There is a strong grapefruit bitterness up front. as well as some leafy earthy characters. I'm not getting the sweeter juices in the flavor profile but I am getting a caramel sweetness and as it reaches the back of your mouth a wheat zest complimenting the bitterness. This is not my personal preference for an American IPA's flavor profile but I know there are those who like a malty floraly borderline American. This just may be for you.

Feel - Medium bodied and creamy on the tongue but at the same time you can feel slight zaps from the carbonation all around. This beer feels much better than it does anything else in my opinion. This is a top of the line feeling IPA.

Overall - While I do find this a decent IPA I don't think its one of the best I've had or even top 20. It is fine but I feel the price was a little steep at 6$ for a 500 ml of a mediocre IPA. If you get the chance to try a fresh bottle cheap go for it, or if you like floral IPA's more than juicy this one may be your calling. Otherwise stick to Moralite or Yakima or vox pop. you'll be better served.

Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a nice large white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops notes with some grapefruit and fruit ester is quite enticing. Taste is a nice mix of citrusy hops notes with some grapefruit notes and some fruity ester with light residual sugar notes and some subtle bitterness. Body is pretty full with good carbonation. Well brewed IPA but maybe lacking some floral undertones.

I bought a 473ml can. Pours out a nice golden yellow. From the first smell, you get citrus and grapefruit. Nice foam that is pretty thick and leave some lacing on the glass. I like the bitterness for a 57 IBU beer. Good carbonation.

Very good overall! Brasserie des Mille Îles always makes good products!
