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.

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.

lesifflebiere (1271) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 8, 2013
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.

(bottle) clear slightly hazy orange amber colour with a medium tall white head; aroma of citrus, then some stewed fruit; balanced flavour with a very long medium bitter finish, nice

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)

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2011
Bottle. Slightly hazy golden with a medium off white foamy head with good retention and nice lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, clementine, apricot, very nice fresh hops smell, pale malt, moderate alcohol. Flavor is grapefruit, tangerine, oily citrusy and a bit of piny hops, pale malt, moderate residual sugar, bitter finish and aftertaste. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Very well done!

I tried this beer on July 20, 2012 at "Bar Volo" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a clouded golden yellow colour with a thick, long lasting rocky white head. The aroma was citrusy hops, grainy malt, and herbs and spices (I sear it was marijuana). The mouthfeel was medium bodied with mild carbonation. The flavour was citrusy with hints of crunchy vegetables.

Pours hazy yellow with a thick white head. Smells very nice very strong hops . The Amarillo really comes through in the aroma, as well as the cascade. Tastes nice very citrus and bitter. Lots of grapefruit. Very fresh and crisp. Great brew.

MrFecesious (960) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2012
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.

MJGG (950) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 3, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2011 Bouteille de 341 ml. Arômes invitants de houblon américain (pamplemousse, conifères, touche de menthol). Robe dorée et très légèrement trouble, peu de mousse et effervescence moyenne. En bouche, le houblon américain (pamplemousse et résine) se montre expressif (surtout par rapport à d’autres Pale Ales embouteillées au Québec), sans toutefois atteindre l’intensité aromatique des meilleures IPA américaines. Le malt est bien croustillant et la finale sèche pour le style, ce qui crée une bière très facile à boire. Finale plutôt amère de houblon résineux. Une belle surprise!
