pumpkinhead2 (373) - Longueuil, Quebec, - JUL 18, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2014 Bière orangée mais pas tout à cuivrée, remplie de particules, bonne effervescence, large col beige mousseux et résistant. Arômes dominants de houblons divers (floral, herbes, épinette, pamplemousse, fruits tropicaux), et un léger malt grillé semble se cacher derrière ce houblon. En bouche, c’est pétillant, et l’onctuosité est intéressante, le corps est moyen. Au goût, on perçoit d’abord un malt caramélisé, qui laisse rapidement la place à un houblon intense aux saveurs surtout herbacées et résineuses. La finale est très amère. Selon moi, cette bière manque clairement de raffinement. On dirait une bonne pale ale dans laquelle on aurait «garoché» toute sorte de houblon un peu n’importe comment afin d’essayer de choquer les papilles du dégustateur. Le résultat en est plutôt ordinaire…

On tap at the brewery. Houblonniere is A nice slightly cloudy copper gold with a thick beige head. It had hoppy green c-hops, hop pellet and pine aroma. Very bitter but clean, some dankness lots of pine and a bit of caramel malts. A solid hop forward APA that is almost an IPA.

If you like hoppy beers, you should try this one. Its aroma just makes you want to take another sip!

Pours very dark gold. Steady carbonation. Frothy white head that leaves behind considerable lacing. Aromas of citrus, pine, and a smidgen of marmalade. Tastes more bitter than the aromas. Grapefruit, malts and grains. Dry finish. Overall, a bit different than the standard hoppy beers out there right now, and while not my favourite of beers brewed in this fashion, it is a solid, enjoyable pour.

glennmastrange (2288) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle. Moderate grain for the malt, moderate to heavy herbs and grapefruit peel, light dough for the yeast, with a hint of pepper. Head is average size, between frothy and creamy, slightly off-white with good thick lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is slightly hazy light amber. Flavor starts faintly sweet and moderately acidic, then the long finish is moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a carbonation between lively and fizzy. Nothing complex about this American Pale Ale, but it’s IPA attributes are bold and dominant.

solidfunk (4173) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 7, 2014
A little hoppy. Pours a little red and orange. Soft carbonation. Some citrus - not sure how fresh this is but not as hoppy as the name suggests. Bottle from Bieres du Monde.

sudomorph (658) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2014
Sample from 500ml bottle. Pours a nearly clean light copper with a film of a off-white head. Aroma has bright notes of bread, citrus, and yeast. Taste is a balanced bitter with a slight sweetness. A touch of fruity notes on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty clean and refreshing. Overall tasty.
