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.

Another of Dunham very good beer. Aroma is mostly bread for malt, citrus, herb hops (very well done with Centennial, Cascade & Amarillo), maybe a bit of banana. Pale yellow color, hazy, with a fast disappearing white head. Medium bitterness and light sweet. Texture is oily-creamy with soft carbonation with a light bitter finish (as a APA should be). At the top of my list for APAs made in Quebec.

341ml bottle. Hazy golden body, big white fluffy head with excellent retention. Fresh aroma of grapefruit, spices, lots of peppercorn, lemons, oranges and pineapple. Crisp taste of pink grapefruit, herbal hops, decent amount of yeast, coriander, a touch of pine resin, lemon and pineapple juice. Light, flavourful and an excellent example of the style.

This baby hits all the right notes for me. Nice colour, nice creamy head, good lacing. Huge grapefruit hop explosion at first whiff. Once that subsides a bit the orange and tropical fruit become more noticeable. Taste is like a jump in the river on a hot, muggy day. It’s pure refreshment. Malt profile is solid though subtle. There’s a nice bit of spice hiding in here somewhere. Finish is all dry pine. This is way too drinkable.

Bouteille 341ml chez Marché des Brasseurs. Robe ambre doré un peu brouillé, avec mousse moyennne peu durable. Arôme d’agrumes peu prononcé. Bière houblonnée au final un peu amère mais agréable. Goût un peu fruité, accompagné de touches sapinées...une bonne pale américaine.

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.

(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

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

pintbypint (2593) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
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.

HopsandBolts (70) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
Pours a hazy yellow with moderate white head. Aromas of hops and floral notes and flavours of hops, toasted biscuit, malt and cereal. This is an interesting IPA that is more on the malty side of things than the hoppy side.

radiomgb (2247) - 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

On tap at Barley Brothers in Winnipeg. Glass shared with northropfrye. Again, I get some sweet bubblegum in this in addition to the bitterness. Nice beer.
