One of the best IPAs I’ve found. Tried many, from various microbreweries in my region, this one I wouldn’t give the time of day because it’s available in most supermarkets around here. But I eventually came to realize I liked this one best after all. It’s not too bitter nor too "watery", the flavour profile seems dead on and it’s crisp and refreshing. Recommend with veal burger, beer battered shrimp, pretzels or cashes. Their best beer.

Ma nouvelle bière "de tous les jours"! La Boréale IPA est une bière facile à trouver et pas dispendieuse. C’est ma Boréale favorite, très certainement à cause de son penchant évident vers le houblon. Une 6.2% facile à boire, bonne au goût et avec un beau corps. Un 6 pack de cette bière accompagnée de quelques autres bières pour déguster/découvrir et c’est une fin de semaine agréable assurée!

solidfunk (3586) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Malt forward IPA that’s actually fairly decent. A surprise for these guys. Pours translucent orange without much head or lacing. Strong barley smell with light hops - more along the English IPA tradition than otherwise. Average carbonation. On tap.

À l’oeil : Elle se présente, jaune dorée et légèrement trouble, avec une fine couche de mousse. Au nez : Le nez met en valeur les houblons américains. Agrumes, fleurs et fruits se marient en arômes. Au goût : Le goût plus terreux du Cascade vient balancer le tout. On perd un peu le goût fruité, malheureusement. L’amertume est contrôlée mais bien présente ! Un bang for the buck, c’est certain !

Deu (679) - Nantes, FRANCE - AUG 26, 2013
341 ml bottle. light body, soft carbonation. It lacks some aromatic typical to the style. A little bit watery, not very hoppy nor bitter. Decent but not impressed. Y

Pours light brown, aroma of citrus and slight pine, not way overpowering. Taste is citrus, pine, pineapple. Enjoyed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at some little place on st Laurent in Montreal. Good solid ipa. Not very hoppy

I actually found this to be a bit too sweet, and not as bitter as I like an IPA to be. It seems almost like an ESB or something. Tasty, but not what I was expecting.

Surement la meilleur IPA que j’ai bu de toute ma vie. Belle senteur floral et legere senteur d’agrumes. Elle se boit tres bien et a un gout amer et d’agrumes!
