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.

tom10101 (3103) - 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.

probstblueribbon (3067) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2010
341 ml bottle from Depanneur Peluso, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Hazy deep golden with some floaties and a large slightly off-white foam. Aroma: Bright, fruity, piney, green and peppery, some nice spicy fruit cake-like malts, caramel, citrus notes, very nice. Palate: Medium+ body, fairly lively effervescence. Flav.: Tons of pine and grapefruit, nicely supported by crunchy caramel malts, sweet and bitter, spicy, a touch fruity, a wonderfully crafted ode to hops; dry with aggressive bitterness that lasts well into the peppery pine/resin finish with just enough malt.

A beautiful, Canadian-made example of the style. A bit less sweet and malty than some versions, which is a plus. Félicitations!

Holmen1 (2784) - 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!

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).

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.
