Rastacouere (6137) - 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.

Bouteille de 341 ml achetée chez La Barik (Trois-Rivières, QC). Arôme: Odeur d’agrumes et de pins. Apparence: La couleur est blonde-dorée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Légère odeur d’agrume et de pins avec une pointe de céréales. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. (Rating #4108)

Hazy golden blond with a large white creamy head. Aroma is resin, citrus and grass. Light body with a fizzy carbonation. In mouth it very bitter bitter for the first few sips, then you are able to taste some citrus and resin from the hops. Malt and esters are not perceptible. I prefer my IPAs more balanced, but still enjoyed that one.

The second in a series of IPAs from A La Fut all made with different hop varieties. This is made with American hop varieties Falconers Flight and Zythos and is a light coloured beer with a light zesty malt and grapefruity hop bitterness. An excellent IPA. The worst thing I can say about it is it is not as good as the even better Cuvee Houblonnee I which I tried at the same time.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2012 Le parfum est principalement ananas, pamplemousse, sapin libérant une nuée d’astringence. Au goût c’est un agencement de houblons assez inusité mais qui livre très bien. La carambole, les conifères, les agrumes et autres notes difficile à saisir s’entrechoquent. Enfin une ipa Québécoise qui se tient debout, belle surprise.
