Not really sure why it’s called an IPA... bread, hay, citrus, floral, Golden Amber color, clear, nice white head.medium bitterness, light sweetness, light body, creamy, soft carbonation, light bitter finish. The kind of beer you keep in the fridge as an everyday refreshing beer. Not bad, but not a real IPA in my mind.

Whatup14 (1073) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2015
En fût à l’aéroport. Couleur jaune-orangée pâle translucide, mousse blanc cassé ayant une bonne tenue. Arôme de houblon floral, malt. Goût de houblon floral, diacétyle, bonne amertume, pamplemousse en arrière-goût. Carbonatation moyenne, corps moyen.

Franckg (461) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2015
En fût. Arômes de houblons terreux, herbes, pamplemousse passé date. En bouche, pas vraiment mieux. Un goût de malt tranchant et sec vient agresser les papilles suivi d’un goût de gazon et de foin. On dirait une Labatt 50 houblonnée. Correcte pour boire à leur pub avec une assiette de nachos mais sans plus.

marcusketchup (6) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2015 does not count
The bitterness is soft for an IPA, but the hop taste is present. Over-carbonated can and some sediments, not like usual lees. It’s a good beer at a fair price which is easy to find in many stores.

fiulijn (16426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
Draught at Archibald - Aéroport de Montréal; 6% ABV
Golden color. It has the malt and hop profile of an APA, not an IPA, with a grainy, cereally accent; the hoppy is lightly grassy.
Oh, well, of course, this is not the West Coast…

Pronounced honey scent. Bitterness is present in mouth. Floral aftertaste. Okay beer but not one of my favorite.

HippyHop (443) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2015
I’m not quite sure what the point of this stuff is. I tried it years ago, and remembered not being impressed. In this case, memory served. It pours awful nice, but the nose is mostly caramel, stale hops and diacetyl. Taste seems less buttery, and there’s some bland bitterness to the finish, but overall this stuff is pretty blah.

Stoned99 (502) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2015
Can @the Keg Steakhouse drank on Jan 27th. Aroma: Metallic, somehow fruity and some caramel, earthy.App: semi hazy copper with minimal white head. Taste and Palate: Doesn’t taste much, tastes metallic, light-medium body, light bitter finish. Overall: Where to start... Probably the best beer you can get at the Keg Steakhouse but probably one of the worst IPA I’ve had. Lacks bitterness, aroma is unpleasant, taste is bland.

Beardbeerman (256) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 21, 2015
Pours a hazy copper with two fingers of frothy off-white head. Carbonation is subtle. The nose is grassy and floral but I wouldn’t go as far as to say it was resinous. Some caramel malts come through nicely. The taste is representative of the aroma with an off-set from the hops. The brew feels moderately dense and offers an enjoyable finish.

ametras (777) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 27, 2014
473ml can. Hazy golden yellow with a frothy white head. Flavors are bread, butter, honey and citrus with grassy and floral notes. Light to medium body, high carbonation, thin texture.

BiereLuc (1137) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
Une bière cuivrée, caramélisée avec des notes de houblon effacées qui offrent une amertume old school sans finesse. C’est probablement la bière d’Archibald que j’aime le moins. Non pas parce qu’elle est mauvaise ou ratée. Non! Du tout. Mais bien parce qu’elle ne s’illustre pas aussi bien que ses sœurs au sein de son style. Le Québec brasse enfin de TRÈS bonnes IPA et celle-ci n’est pas de taille au coeur du marché actuel. Même en canette, elle fait piètre figure parmi les autres choix.
