garthicus (2651) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 14, 2012
Thanks to Blankboy. Appearance: Vibrant hazy yellow, crazy thick snow white head. Aroma: Sharp hops, citrus, quite sweet, grassy. Flavour: Sweet, semi sticky mouth feel, very hoppy. A gin like quality to the flavour that I can’t quite pinpoint. Long bitter hop finish.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2012
341ml bottle shared by blankboy with me and garthicus. Hazy amber with a huge fluffy off-white lasting head. Aroma is dry - floral and a bit minty - simple. Taste is floral, bitter, a bit of oak and oiliness. Slick, mildly carbonated, a little acidic and sneakily quite bitter in the finish. A bit odd.

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2012
341 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden with a persistent white head. Smells herbal, grainy and hoppy. Taste is dry, cereals, earthy, somewhat woody. Sharp, herbal bitterness in the finish. Body is average, mouthfeel is sticky. Good IPA.

Glouglouburp (5936) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2012
In short: A very bitter blonde IPA. Nice beer for hopheads
How: Bottle 341ml. Consumed fresh about two weeks after the beer release
The look: Clear blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose of medium intensity is bright and sharp and showcases lemony/citric hops with a resinous undertones and some tropical fruits. Taste has pleasant bready malts reminiscent of a fresh baguette. But mostly this beer is about the bitter hops with flavors of citrus fruits, tropical fruits, lemon and grass. Lemony acidity from start to finish with some resinous notes. I’m not all that familiar with the Falconer hops and even less with the Zythos so all I can say is that this beer smells and taste razor sharp with a higher-than-usual acidity level. There was a little alcohol bite which is surprising considering it is only a 6.3% beer. Just like the Cuvée Houblonnée I, this is a beer for hopheads only, a group to which I belong. I’m not gonna complain about a beer being so hop-forward because there too few hop-bombs in Quebec, I don’t know the exact number but I can probably count on one hand half of the total number of fingers I have.

Bouteille 341ml. De couleur dorée et claire. Nez floral, moyen de houblon herbeux aux petites notes citriques et résineuses, moyennement fruité (agrumes, traces de fruits tropicaux) ainsi que léger de malt pâle sucré et de miel. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture moyennement huileuse aux notes résineuses. Goût moyennement amer de houblon légèrement floral et citrique (une amertume présente toute la gorgée) accompagné d’un moyen goût fruité (agrumes, faibles traces d’abricots et de mangues) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de malt sucrés avec des notes de céréales fraîches puis à mesure qu’on approche la finale, une amertume asséchante, herbeuse (herbes sèches, traces de thé) et moyennement résineuse vient prendre toute la place. Post-goût très long et sec, amer de houblon herbeux, moyennement résineux, floral et légèrement citrique avec un goût fruité (zeste d’agrumes).

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2012
A beautiful lasting white tower settles atop the relatively pale golden clearish haziness. A rather rough nose where bursting resins and raw albeit not perfumey tropical fruits are greeted by a phenolic compound that could be more than disagreeable in a beer that focused less intenseively on hops. The first sip feels kinda round for what it tastes like, but the smashing bitterness that ramps along the closure is certainly the only memory you can preserve for a while, leaving a long, coating aftertaste of sticky resins. Underneath, the malt base is not overloaded with crystal malts, but still feels fairly grainy and a bit rough, especially with the alcohol also being so forward for a 6.3% ale. I appreciate the effort to showcase unusual hop varietals and focus on hops rather than malts, something that many IPA from Quebec do not accept, but the balance here is not too terrible. Those rare hop varietals just don’t smell as good as more common examples and the gearing is, to my tastes, leaning overly towards bitterness as opposed to aromas. Looking forward to the rest of the series nevertheless, in cse hops I appreciate more are used, but at this price tag of almost 5$ per 12oz, I’m not holding my breath.
