Lubiere (10094) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2013
A blonde IPA with a thin white head. In aroma, nice piney floral hops with citrus notes and faint sulfur. In mouth, a nice caramel malt with floral resinous hops, lingering, nicely made. Bottle at Hivern’ale, Jan 25 2012.

Bottle at Dany’s place after the Mondial. Pours a clear golden amber with a medium sized white head. Sweet caramel and citrus hops. Medium bodied, sweet caramel. Long bitterness, smooth. Decent.

Rastacouere (6131) - 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.

HogTownHarry (6108) - 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.

blankboy (6081) - 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.

Glouglouburp (6022) - 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.

Boutip (4738) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2013
Bottle: Poured a clear deep orangey color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma consists of fruity hops with tropical notes. Taste is also dominated by tropical fruit notes with some fruity ester and light bitter notes. Malt backbone is quite discreet with a small amount of residual sugar. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Decent but not really a type of hops that procure me with enough enjoyment.

SlovakSniper (3203) - Out Of This World, 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.
