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.

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.

Reynolds314 (2385) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 21, 2012
One of the better non american APAs that I have tried. Nice floral, grassy hops that have a slight citrus kick as well. Clean malts and yeast let the hops really shine.

glennmastrange (2311) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Tap. Moderate malt aromas of grain and caramel, heavy pine and perfume for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with a hint of peach in the background. Head is small, frothy, white with excellent lacing and good legs and mostly diminishing. Color is sparkling clear light amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation and a tart finish. Well balanced and well rounded IPA. I could drink lots of this.

radiomgb (2307) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
Slightly murky orange in colour with a thin white head, light lacing. The aroma is of pale malts, orange citrus, light sweetness. The flavour is quite bitter, lots of citrus hops, good malt balance. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, bitter, hoppy. This is very nice. Excellent hop bite in this one, verging on IPA territory. I want more.

341ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha in Gatineau, Quebec

northropfrye (2276) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 3, 2014
Pale orange cloudy body. Sweet malt and a touch of pine in the aroma. Taste is initially kind of bitter but fades to a buttery sweetness. Okay.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2254) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 14, 2014
Dunham Pale Ale Americaine 5.5% Served in a dimpled mug. It pours a copper orange pour with a big fluffy off-white head, soapy lacing and a great juicy tropical fruit hop bouquet that is right up my alley. Wonderful full body that is quite smooth with a crisp bitter hop finish. The taste is piney resin, dank, fruity goodness. It is a top knotch us-style pale ale.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2013 Orange, ananas bien enrobé dans un corps juste assez robuste pour une pale ale. Fini sec, amertume douce.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2011
341ml bottle from Grand Duc. Batch 2 most likely. 2-3 weeks after release.
Appearance : Clear pale yellow with big white fluffy head. Extensive lacing.
Aroma : Crisp citrusy and floral hops. Very sharp and fresh. Freat malt with lots of fruits. Light honey, light yeast.
Taste : Great malt with citrusy and floral hops. As sharp and fresh as the nose. Finish is rather bitter but very fresh and crisp. Floral and citrusy notes. Other fruits too. Light resinous notes. No alcohol.
Overall : Wow. This is a huge surprise. Easily the best APA bottled in Quebec. Hell it even kicks the ass of all the our bottled IPAs. Intense hops on nose, very fresh and refreshing. No alcohol. Awesome fresh taste with a nice bitter kick on the finish. Some fruits seems to be coming from the yeast. At 6.5% with that much hops, it’s probably on the line between APA/IPA (comments ?). Anyone wanting to try this needs to seek this ASAP because it doesn’t seem like a beer that can hold fresh very long. Perfect summer beer.

Courtesy of SlovakSniper. Poured out a bright yellow gold colour with ultra fine sediment hanging around, a bubbly white cap that lives on as a rim and leaves a smattering of lacing. Straight up bright citrus nose, lemon candy, sort of grapefruit, some pine, deep huffs get me potency, resin, very appealing without being overhopped. Tasty and refreshing - citrusy with good long bitter lingerings. Pine is bigger in the flavour than in the aroma, smooth grapefruit, perfect sweetness and malts that balance very well. It is now in my belly.
