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.

This is a great beer! Pours light orange with a huge foamy head and big clumps of lacing. This beer is possible 5-6 months old, maybe even a bit more which may explain the floaty chunks and the foamyness. Nose is piney and fruity. Aromas are pine up front, some light fruit through the middle with a more flowery hop finish. Tastes are light bitter to start, then some light fruit and finally a nice medium bitter finish. Mouth is medium body with lively carbonation. Really nice beer that I’ll re-rate again someday with a fresher example.

DerWeg (1548) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2012 Creamy puffy head over a pale gold body. FOGGY LOOK Aromas of light citrus zing countering sweetness. Taste replays aroma with deeper fruit and slight acidity and some peach. Very smooth and warm feel from alcohol. One of the few times I got samples, this would be well worth a 12oz. A 750 BOTTLE PURCHASED WAS INCREDIBLE ALSO. - friday, october 22, 2010 - 341 ml bottle is really tasty, beautiful hops - DEC 2012.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2014 Courtesy of Jaghana Couleur orangée trouble, mousse qui disparait. Nez leger houblonné, bien fruité. Gout houblonné fruité pamplemousse, note menthe, corps moyen, mais fin très longue forte amère, beaucoup d’ibu!

gramity (1530) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 29, 2013
The color is a hazy honey with a thick off white head. The aroma is of hops and more hops plus citrus fruits. The taste also of great hops and citrus fruits mostly grapefruit.The after taste was great, everything about this beer was just fantastic. Great Pale Ale.

AlainG (1430) - 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)

Blonde très légèrement voilée, faible effervescence, petit col de mousse, semble mince ; au nez, houblons végétaux et fruités puissants. Ceux-ci se transmettent en bouche, se rapprochant assez d’une IPA, mais avec une belle présence de malts. C’est plus ou moins ce que devrait goûter une american pale ale : elle est racée, ronde, complexe et goûteuse, un excellent exemple du genre.

Pint at Bateau de Nuit. Hazy yellow gold. Meringue-like cap. Huge floral and citrus burst of taste. A mix of grapefruit bitterness and sweet citrus. Maybe pomegranate bitter? Aroma is more floral and citrus forward. Lemon lime. Muted pine. Some fresh cut grass in there too. Perfect dry finish.
