New product from Boreale.

Poured into my favorite pint, Chanvre rouge..

It got a clear apparence, amber color, small white head of foam with calm effervescence.

It smells like sweet citrus..shy smell..

It taste pretty much the same, some sweet citrus taste, hoppy, light body.

mouthfeel is right for the style, a bit dense,,with a after taste of bitterness,, small carbonation.

Overall its good, nothing extreme. It is a pretty smooth ipa,

nice hookup with my homemade-poutine,.heheh

Sampled at Le Mondial. Listed as 50 IBUs.

Appearance: A rather clear gold body but lots of off-white head that looks real nice with retention and all.

Smell: Nice hops aroma. A bit vegetal mixed with a touch of honey and nuts.

Taste: Has that nice brassy citrus hops taste with some delicate fruit, mangoes and peaches.

Mouthfeel: Bitterness is very low and i found the body a bit light for an IPA.

Overall: An ok IPA that has some good points but doesn't quite reach the standard.
