dandeman (505) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2012
Aroma: We can easily smell the grapefruit of these American hops with other citrus like lemon zest. The presence of little meat notes are making that nose a bit less pleasant. Appearance: Average creamy head, long lasting and lacing acceptable. Color gold blond very clear. Taste: Very hoppy and lemon attack. Long lasting bitterness. Lemon and grapefruit are dominant flavors with grassy notes. A lot of bitterness. For real amateurs. To my opinion though, flavors are too basic and missing complexity. Texture is good and round but this beer is only hop and bitterness although you can can find tiny malty accents like biscuit and caramel when warmer.

tom10101 (2700) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2012
Bottle (341 ml). Crystal clear golden with a medium diminishing creamy off-white and good lacing. Aroma is floral with interesting notes of grapefruit and tropical fruits that quickly fades and hints of sweetness. Taste is heavily bitter with grapefruits, pine and slight floral notes. Taste is oily. Bitter finish who last forever. Thin to medium body. Aroma is promising, but taste a slightly too bitter for my liking and mouthfeel is weird (I’m hesitating between a score of 2 or 3 for the mouthfeel). With some little improvements, this could be a really nice IPA!

SlovakSniper (3092) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2012
Un liquide embouteillé en novembre 2012. Une robe dorée scintillante. Une tête mousseuse qui ne réussit jamais à s’élever. Quelques élans fruités qui sont à la remorque de parfums floraux et d’herbes vertes qui s’étendent sur des malts toastés et même mielleux. Sur les papilles, une invasion amère, florale à souhait et sans aucun doute herbeuse, d’un pamplemousse encore bien vert et très menaçant. En bouche, un liquide de moyenne densité avec un apport normal des bulles et une texture légèrement huileuse. En finale, une amertume très puissante, râpeuse, une charge florale intense et longue qui finit par écorcher les tissus de ma langue.

Cuvée Houblonnée II : Sous nos yeux, une robe dorée qui se laisse coiffer par une mousse blanche, crémeuse et tenace. Une dentelle qui la rend attrayante. Un nez qui capte des parfums de pin et d’herbes qui dansent sur une base maltée aux accents mielleux. Des papilles prisent par des saveurs bien houblonnées, un aspect résineux et un profil floral qui poussent les malts dans les derniers retranchements de ma langue. Un corps solide, plutôt lourd, avec une effervescence bien présente et une texture huileuse. Une finale assez puissante de notes amères qui cherchent à s’accrocher pour un long moment.

Minderbinder (1740) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2012
Bottle 341ml. Pours clear blond with medium white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of flowers, honey, citrus, tropical fruits, malt. Taste is of flowers, citrus, fruits, bitterness, malt. Palate: ligth body. Overall: Very nice aroma. Taste is a tad too bitter in the finish (balance?). Pretty drinkable. Nice beer.

Eructoblaster (2985) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle - 341ml. Limpid golden body with a good white foamy/creamy head. Strong hoppy aroma with melon and grapefruit hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries grainy, oaky, and citrusy notes. Ends with a long, robust bitter finish. Very good example of American IPA.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 17, 2012
Belle bière couleur de miel, parfaitement limpide où flotte un fin col blanc marquant le verre d’une légère dentelle. Des arômes de céréales caramélisées, légèrement lactés et un houblonnage résineux / floral. Amertume affirmée avec peu de sucres résiduels. De corps honnête, crémeuse, moyennement effervescente, elle se termine sur une longue fin aromatique et doucement amère.

mathieuc (1227) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 13, 2012
Remake of this Cuvée under the name "Cuvée Houblonnée" (getting a regular status from the brewery?). Smell is timid earthy hops with a fresh wort (unfermented) component. Quite bitter, a small sip can still be felt on the tongue after a few minutes. Hop heads paradise. Flavors of caramel and resin abound. A nice bitter IPA that would benefit from a more aromatic hop schedule, if that is even possible with these two varietals.

blankboy (6018) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2012
My bottle [330ml] shared with garthicus & HogTownHarry. Pours a hazy golden-orange with a large rocky off-white head. Decent lacing. Aroma is sweet, herbal and grassy along with some slight perfume notes and caramel malt. Flavour is quite hoppy, backed by caramel malt, and with a big bitter finish. Medium bodied. Quite enjoyable.
