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.

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 (304) - 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.

Cette bière a une couleur rousse-cuivrée, garnie d’un léger col de mousse, qui, néanmoins, persiste. Le houblon se fait sentir en premier lieu, suivi d’odeurs fruitées; de pamplemousse rose, de conifères et de résine. Le goût ne déçoit pas, étant très apparenté aux senteurs. Le houblon et le pamplemousse y sont présents, ce qui laisse un long arrière-goût sec et amer très agréable. (embouteillée en sept. 11) (104-241011)

Odeur de houblon cascade; florale, agrume. Belle robe brun orange un peu brumeuse. Sur la langue c’est très légèrement sucré mais l’amertume est costaude en arrière goût. En fait, si tu avale rapidement ta grogé, tu ne percevra aucun surce. Un peu boisé. Solide et satisfaisante.

jgb9348 (4853) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 1, 2011
Deep chunky copper and amber coloured body with a thick, soapy, antiquey tan colour - looks like a lot of Quebecois-based IPAs. Aroma of bright cascade hops, caramel, toffee, nuts, earth and a bit english-y. Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence with a nice bright hop bite, some earthy malt behind with a little bit of grapefruit on the tail end. Aftertaste shows a lot of character and complexity with the nuts, earth, metal and bright hops all making a statement. Overall, a very nice IPA - perhaps one of the best I’ve had from the whole of Canada! I sampled this 341 mL bottle purchased from Marche Des Sauvers in Montreal, Quebec, Canada for CA$3.79 on 27-June-2011 sampled at home in Washington on 01-December-2011.

341ml bottle. Mahogany with sediment and a fluffy off white head. Pine, fresh but muted citrus hops, grapefruit being the most prevalent aroma, malt is there but does not seem well balanced. Quite nice and fresh, bitter that becomes astringent on the palate as the bitterness grows, average body and carbonation, alcohol is there in the middle, becomes dry and a very hoppy bitterness at the end, almost like you can feel the hops just sitting there. Its an interesting beer - not necessarily well balanced but some interesting flavours throughout.
