COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspirée des Pale Ales de la côte ouest américaine, notre APA est une véritable célébration du houblon. Légère, sèche et amère, elle présente des arômes d’agrumes typiques des houblons américains Centennial, Cascade & Amarillo. Si vous vous êtes déjà demandé ce que le ciel pouvait goûter, la réponse se trouve dans cette bouteille.

Bottle at home, from my Minneapolis Town Hall glass. Thanks Dany!!! Pours hazy gold, thick white head, lacing is above-average. Nose is clean grain, with light sour cream notes, along with tropical fruit, persimmon, grapefruit, pineapple, spice, and lemon, really pretty nose! Flavours of soapy hops, persimmon, pineapple, grapefruit, and lemon rind. Spice and cream in the finish. Really nice, but a touch overly bitter for an APA.

Bottle 341ml. Thx JSP. Pours hazy blond with nice creamy white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of citrus, fruits, pine. Taste is of citrus, pine, fruits. Very bitter. Overall: refreshing, very nice array of citrus and fruits. Heavy on hops. Balance not too shabby.

Bottle 341 ml. Pours hazy pale yellow with a frothy white head. Fair lacing. Impressive aroma of pine and crispy citrus with peppery notes. Also some peachy notes? Flavor of pine and citrus with herbal notes. Dry and bitter finish, maybe even a tad too much. Great surprise by Dunham! High drinkability and quite enjoyable. The best bottled american pale ale from Quebec that i’ve tasted so far.

Verse une blonde relativement brouillée avec un col blanc mousseux. Arômes de pins, d’agrumes et de houblons. En bouche, un mélange de conifères, agrumes (citrons) sur fond d’amertume. Très agréable, bel équilibre.

Pours a cloudy light golden yellow with a medium frothy top and good lacing. Aroma is pineapple and grapefruit hops and light grain. Taste is moderately bitter, grapefruit hop flavouring. Slightly sweet malt, some honey.

VT (1666) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2012
341 ml bottle. Pours a somewhat sediment-filled straw with a resilient white head. Smells like grains and citrus. Tastes like cereals, grains and yeast. Very dry. Sharp sandy, herbal, hoppy, lemon bitterness in the finish. VERY lemony bitterness. Light-to-medium-bodied, creamy. Excellent pale ale.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 Bouteille 341 ml. 6.5%. Une vrai.....Couleur jaune or foncé, mousse blanche crémeuse. Arôme de houblon, citrus et malt...beaucoup de houblon frais.

AlainG (1349) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2014 Des particules en suspension flottent dans un liquide blond qui lui donnent une apparence trouble, sous une mousse franche. Des arômes d’agrumes et d’épices en émanent. Quelque chose qui me rappelle la meringue. Sucré et acidulé Du sapinage traverse la barrière d’écume. Un goût amer, laissant peu de place à autre chose, courtise sans subtilités, les papilles gustatives. Son arrière-goût est tout en amertume et semble vouloir y rester. J’aime bien le résultat. Comme une promenade dans un sous-bois où le sol est plein d’aiguilles de pin. C’est terreux. (170-210212/080314)

After getting a box of good stuff from SlovakSniper, I didnt know where to start, this was the first one i grabbed in the dark. Cloudy golden with a fizzy white head. Bigtime citrus on the nose, a bit of pine too. Huge pine flavour. Citrus and flower as well. Tastes like the time i filled a grapefruit with grass and ate it as a salad. I never did that. Good beer.

Very dry and hoppy. I am a hophead but something about the combination of hops in this does not do it for me. There is something lacking in the malt too, the beer is a bit too thin and unbalanced. There is also a grassy hay like taste. A bit of a hybrid between an APA and IPA but lacking in malt body to be a really good APA but while bitter there is some oomph lacking in the hop flavouring to make it a really good IPA. I am still searching for this breweries replacement to Hoppy their fine even if unbalanced bitter IPA that the previous incarnation of the brewery produced.
