Bouteille 341ml. Couleur orangée cuivrée, mousse blanche dense. Arôme de houblon, de conifère, résineux et de zeste d’orange. Goût de houblon, résineux, d’agrumes léger avec une amertume agréable. Carbonation moyenne, corps assez dense.

mansquito (3255) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Some bar: Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is that of tropical fruits, especially a hefty dose of mellow citrus. Some minor aromas in the floral direction. Taste is fruity and a little sweet. It is pretty lightly hopped for an IPA and is not very bitter at all. I was not all that impressed with it, even though it was quite drinkable.

On Draft at M: Big in Montreal. Hazy tawny orange with medium white head and considerable lacing. Aromas of orange and caramel. Tastes of orange peel with a nice caramel backbone. Overall a nice light, fruity, well balanced IPA.

blankboy (5948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2014
[Draught at Pub St-Alexandre, Quebec City] Pours a hazy copper-gold with an average size semi-lasting bubbly off-white head. Decent lacing. Nice fruity hoppy aroma, resiny and floral -- who knew? Floral C-hop flavour with a long-ish moderate bitter finish.Average to medium bodied. This was a pleasant surprise, I quite liked it.

[ Keg ][ 8oz ][ Patati Patata ][ $3.25][ Small Flute ][ 5/27/14 ]
>> Much smaller volume than expected, paired with poutine. Clear orange, nice cream mousse. Nose is slightly sticky, orange candies. Taste is dusty, salty, papery. Eh, should have gone for the blonde.

Ripe and bitter hoppiness. Super fruity and citrus. Draft at grand bayou. Pretty good. Had this a couple of times and it grew on me

Odeur intéressante mais peu forte,difficile d’identifier les agrumes mais un léger effluve de houblon,apparence cuivrée très réussit un peu trouble. En bouche par contre déçu de ne pas sentir l’agrume et pas très prononcé sur le houblon (peu être une mauvaise bouteille) ce qui donne un désaccord entre l’apparence et le goût, bien dommage parce-que l’idée y est. Une bière qui vaut son prix voir moins.

Grass and herbal, sweet citrus. Well balanced, high drinkability. Aftertaste is gone fast though.

sudomorph (490) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
On tap at Frite Alors! Pours a hazy golden orange with a white head. Aroma is slightly floral with notes of orange citrus. Taste is bitter with some citrus, pine, and a drawn out bitter aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Slightly resiny mouth feel. Overall not bad but the flavours aren’t doing it for me. Not enough tropical fruit for me I think. Worth trying though.

VincentDamon (300) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2014
La Boréale IPA a une couleur cuivrée, avec une mousse généreuse. Nez puissant de houblons herbeux, d’agrumes frais et de sel. En bouche maintenant, c’est puissant également : les houblons sont au rendez-vous : ils amènent des notes fruitées d’agrumes : pamplemousse, limette et notes salées. Cette IPA québécoise est aussi bonne que bien des IPA de microbrasseries que j’ai goûtées, et ce, pour la moitié du prix. Hautement recommandée, bref! Rapport qualité-prix inégalable. Sans aucun doute, vous ne réussierez pas à trouver une meilleure IPA à 10$ le 6-pack, et, c’est triste à dire, bien des bières à 5$ la bouteille de 500 ml vous feront regréter la Boréale IPA. Cheers!
