Les amateurs de houblons en quête d’amertume seront servis par la Ruine Papilles. Cette bière est de couleur ambrée et regorge de houblons américains. Empruntant le style India Pale Ale (IPA) des anglais, les nord-américains ont adaptés le style avec les variétés de houblons qui poussent sur leurs terres. Les IPAs américaines sont plus fortes en alcool, plus amères et plus aromatiques que leurs homologues anglaises. La Ruine Papilles offre des saveurs citronnées et de pamplemousse tout en se mariant bien aux malts caramélisés. Bien amère, ce style de bière n’est pas approprié pour une première expérience chez les microbrasseurs. Récalcitrante aux premiers abords, ceux qui aiment essayer de nouvelles saveurs se feront sans doute prendre au piège puisqu’il est de plus en plus connu et accepté de dire que le houblon est addictif.

341 ml bottle. Pours an almost completely opaque, orange-brown amber with a long-lasting beige head. Smells of cereals and hops. Tastes like light caramel, cereals, unsweetened dough. Strong, sharp bitterness. Very dry. Herbal, earthy, sandy. Maybe a hint of sweet citrus, in there? It’s so strong and overwhelming! Medium-bodied, thick, resinous mouthfeel. Very solidly bitter, that’s what I’m looking for when I grab an IPA.

Very nice hop aroma that let you think of a hard malt backbone. A different story happens in your mouth. Hard bitterness slaps your tastebuds. Malts are there, but almost in a salty-final note. This one is made clean bitter hop. A good hard IPA that doesn’t wait too long to bite you. Not my kind of IPA, not the school of hops I studied at, but sure, a nice beer to drink once in a while...

Solid IPA with a nice aroma. Palate is invaded with awesome bitterness and hops is citrus and floral. Impressed.

Draught, Bateau de Nuit. Reddish-amber with a thin, bubbly head. Lots of chewiness on the nose. Very rich with too much crystal malt and the hops seem a bit old.

Draft at bateau nuit. Rich amber color with nice lace. Aroma frightfully chewy with caramel malts overpowering all else. Toffee and oatmeal cookie. But the flavors are different, with a super lovely bitter hop finish that lasts forever. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle received as a generous extra. Pour has a dark garnet red color with a thick two finger head that fell slowly back to the surface. Aroma has caramel, fruity sweetness, perfume, and damp hops. Mouth feel is light and there is medium low carbonation. Flavor has a malted base, increasing bitterness, perfume, caramel, and a lingering finish. The hops really center around the bitter side and have almost a soapy flavoring at times.

Une de mes bières favorites que je bois régulièrement. Cette bière vient dans un format 1.9 litre très pratique pour consommer en une journée ou deux. Agréable odeur de houblon et caramel, robe ambrée avec un léger col blanc qui persiste. En bouche, une excellente saveur de caramel, de houblon, de pin avec une finale tout en amertume. Cette bière se bonifie lorsqu’elle se réchauffe légèrement. En conclusion, une bière de qualité tout en amertume.

MXD (303) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2012
Pours copper orange. Off-white head, quite thick actually. Aroma is mainly about resin and fruits. Taste is, again, predominantly resin, secondarily grapefruits and thirdly, malts. BItterness is really heavy -- undermalted? Possibly. Good stuff, inspite of a rather simple hop profile.. which ends up being somewhat confusing nonetheless. Like an English IPA that tries to be an American IPA. Not bad, but won’t have this one again, unless somebody’s selling it on tap somewhere. 4$ a bottle is... somewhat expansive.

Belle couleur ambrée. Très amère et peu effervescente. Tout de même satisfaisante.
