COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Minderbinder (1887) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2012
Bottle 341ml. Pours dark copper with low beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is of malt, sweetness, caramel, citrus. Taste is of malt, bitterness, earthy, overdone english hops. Palate: good body. Overall: Ill balanced, Not my kind of IPA, cloying earthy english bitterness. Still decent.

BeerGolem (683) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle 341 ml. Pours burgundy with tiny beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is strangely malty for an IPA. Taste, on the contrary is way too much on earthy hops. No balance at all. Drinkability is low. Not very interesting.

dandeman (527) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2012
Aroma: Citrus and grapefruit mainly with toasted cereal notes. Appearance: Clear copper, average size frothy head, between light brown, and off-white, mostly lasting, no lacing. Taste: Attack is all bitterness. Grapefruit is all over with orange zest notes. Hops are very cutting with ash and smoke accents. Not a lot of malted flavors.Finish is dry, ashy and very long lasting. Very dry and bitter IPA. Couldn’t find any malt accents. If you look for strong bitterness without any sugar this your beer.

dresden (882) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - AUG 31, 2012
Thanks Pat! Dark brown orange with a decent white head. Aroma is very malt heavy, not really much for fruity hops i expected. Really malty, some grapefruit hops, some herbal notes and quite bitter. Sticky and chewy. Not a bad IPA, but not my favorite kind of one.

tom10101 (2919) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle (341 ml). Amber with a medium diminishing brown head and some lacing. Aroma is malty with citrus and hops. Taste is of grapefruit with a good malty body. There’s also some earthy/minerals notes. Medium but sticky bitterness. Mouthfeel is dry. Good IPA.

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2012
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.

Bean (73) - Saint-Eustache, Québec, - JUL 4, 2012
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.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2012
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.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2012
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
