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.

Oakes (12234) - 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.

Lubiere (9789) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2009
A lightly hazed dark copper amber IPA with a thin creamy off white head. In aroma, a very pungeant and smooth IPA, citrussy hops, nice and floral. In mouth, a crisp malt with good c-hops, grapefruits, pungeant and smooth. Medium bodied. On tap at Brouhaha Nov. 23 2009.

Fresh can from Peluso. Mild hop aroma. Too bitter as these IPAs tend to go, and not cheaply at that. Lasting head on golden, some lace lines.

Tap at Saint Bock. Amber pour with a tight white head. The aroma is awesome. Lots of juicy fruit and tropical mango character. A little bit of fairly bright hoppiness. Grapefruit and orange in addition to some very heavy hoppiness. Bitter and resinous on the finish with a lot of bright fruity character up front. A pretty damn nice IPA.

My Bottom Line:
Crunchy cereals succeed in nearly balancing out this India Pale Ale’s assertive leafy, citrusy and resinous hoppiness, creating a flavorful and quenching example of the style.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the clear dark golden.
-The aroma is quite pleasant (floral, citrusy), but could be more expressive to announce the hoppiness to come (and to be as alluring as top-tier IPAs of this continent).
-The hop bitterness is gripping, but it is not overwhelming. Apparently the first batch was too intense so they toned it down somewhat. The pint I had was not aggressive at all, so great move on their part, imho.
-The Frontenac malt character is almost drowned out by the loud hops, but its fruity idiosyncracies still appear here and there. Personally, I would have preferred a softer malt to let the hops express themselves.

On tap at Brouhaha.

DuffMan (6552) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle, not sure of the age, but I’m guessing not too fresh. Nice orange body, thick off white head. Very malty profile, which I generally enjoy, but the hops just aren’t here at all-- a bit of plastic phenols, but tats it really. Bitter finish, but not assertively so. Disappointing.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2010
Draught - at Vices et Versa April 23, 2010. Very cloudy reddish amber with a straw-coloured creamy head. Aroma of juicy malt with a LOT of pungent dry floral bitterness; some alcohol (simple, but appealing). The taste - a huge hit of floral bitterness, like marigolds in full bloom - dry and spicy, with noticeable alcohol - as it warms it gets even more bitter, with grapefruit skin notes coming in. Average body, solid carbonation - not stinging, quite drying on the palate with all that floral/grapefruit bitterness, the linger is quite long on this one. Very good, if one-dimensional beer - I would buy a pint of this any day of the week.

blankboy (5979) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2010
Draught at Vices & Versa. Pours a cloudy copper-amber with an average size diminishing creamy off-white head. Lovely hoppy aroma, lots of floral and citrus hops. Flavour’s quite hoppy and fruity -- lovely and oh so easy to drink! Average to medium bodied. A fantastic IPA.

In short: A nourishing citrusy and resinous IPA. Good beer.
How: Tap at Montreal Mondial de la Bière 2010
The look: Cloudy dark orange topped by a persistent small beige head
In long: Nose citrusy hops with oranges and pine-needles. A nice malt backbone with tasty rich caramel well balanced by resinous and citrusy hops with a bit of pine needles. Also an orange peels and dry wood sensation. The bitterness is in the medium range. This is a very competent IPA. Its rich caramelized malt backbone makes it more nourishing than refreshing. I was hoping for a more assertive bitterness from a beer called “Palette Destroyer”. And I also expected a lot more dirty S&M action from the move Slave Of Love Forever, a romantic comedy!?!?
