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.

glennmastrange (2445) - 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.

A fantastic drink. Great lacing on this. Aromas are fairly dank. Flavors are smooth and hoppy. Notes of tropical fruit. Awesome stuff.

mathieuc (2285) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 22, 2015
Pours a hazy golden with a thin white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of citrus and grass. Taste is bitter to a medium-high level and pretty dry. Flavors are of light caramel and cereals with fruits and a spicy finish. Bitterness lingers for quite a while. Body is medium and carbonation on the lower side, making for a oily mouthfeel. Overall a good beer but I just wish it had more hoppy aromas and flavors.

VertBaconStrips (2200) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 10, 2011
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.

TheJester (2199) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2011
341 mL bottle. A rather unappealing hazy brown-yellow. Aroma is nice - C hops. Sweet orange, mostly. The flavour is pretty good as well. Nice bitterness from start to finish. The hops add grapefruit and some resin. Just a touch of caramel. Pretty good.

piscator34 (2152) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
Draft sample. Orange in colour with medium carbonation. Classic American Pale ale aromas of white grapefruit, flowers, and a touch of caramel malt. Florals, pine, and classic citrus notes continue on, but are somewhat blunted by some strong fat pale malt notes. Medium bodied, but with a smooth mouthfeel that seems somewhat inappropriate for the style. Moderate bitterness by today’s standards. Outclassed by the Nickel Brook Naughty Neighbor that my wife was drinking.

Fred82 (2118) - 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.

DeanF (1891) - Northwest Territories, CANADA - DEC 19, 2010
Aroma of hops and sour wheat. Body is a nice yellow, but there’s no head. Flavour is dry hops, with a slightly wheat detergent aftertaste, followed by a dry finish. It’s very drinkable.

Swaroga (1813) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2015
A bit hazy with quite a big and lasting head. The aroma is dominated by hops with strong pine and zest. The malt aroma is like sponge cake. There is a bit of sulfur and diacetyl but not over the limit. The flavor is also dominated by hops. Bitterness is long and citrus seeds like. Not really delicious. The beer is still easy to drink and refreshing. I like lasting bitterness so I kind of enjoy it.
