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.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2011
Bouteille 341ml. De couleur dorée-foncée et légèrement voilée. Nez fruité (agrumes, notes de mangues, traces d’abricots), de houblon citrique (pamplemousse), légèrement herbeux (herbes fraîches) et légèrement résineuse (branche de sapin), malté de caramel doux avec des notes de biscuits. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture moyennement crémeuse et aux petites notes résineuses. Moyen goût fruité (agrumes, notes d’abricots, faibles traces de mangue) accompagné de notes épicées (poivre doux) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel légèrement sucré avec un léger goût de biscuits. Parallèlement l’on retrouve une moyenne amertume assez asséchante de houblon citrique et très légèrement floral qui progresse durant la gorgée pour devenir léger-moyen résineux et légèrement herbeux (herbes fraîches) en finale. Post-goût long et sec, moyennement amer de houblon citrique, légèrement résineux et herbeux avec des notes florales et fruitées (zest d’agrumes).

tom10101 (2747) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2012
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.

Hazy golden-orange body, large white head, spotty lacing. Floral and grassy hops up front, increasing citrus (particularly grapefruit) with each sip. Medium to light bodied, appropriate carbonation, moderate bitterness, clean finish.

garthicus (2664) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 23, 2010
On tap at Vices et Versa. Appearance: hazy yellow with tons of visible carbonation & a good thick white head. Aroma: Sour milk, hops, a little malt and bran. Flavour: pretty hoppy up front, lots of carbonation on the tongue with bitter hops and a long sweet-dry finish. Nice.

pintbypint (2593) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
341ml brown bottle. Unfiltered golden appearance - some floaties, topped with a long lasting creamy white foam. Tons of lacing. Nose has caramel, earth and floral and citrus hops. Taste has bitter citrus hops, floral notes, caramel malt base. Grapefruity finish, good bitterness, long aftertaste. Medium bodied and well carbonated. An awesome aggressive APA, would be easy to drink 6 of these at a party or BBQ.

Holmen1 (2397) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2013
Flaske på Cafe Delirium i Brussel: en supergod apa med flott skum, herlig innbydende aroma, nydelig og kompleks smak, og heldigvis en ettersmak som sitter lenge. Og det fra et defekt kjølelager!
