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 (2240) - 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.

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.

HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2010
On draught at Vices et Versa April 23, 2010. Slightly hazy pale gold with a solid white creamy/foamy white head; very thick sticky white lace remnants too. Acidic/leafy bitter aroma with a touch of lemon zest, dry, not sweet or even all that malty - you can definitely detect that 7%. Taste is dry, floral, not as strong alcohol - it’s also maltier than the aroma - I got a nice bit of sweet fresh peach from this - I really liked it, it definitely pushed my buttons. Average body, well-carbonated, lightly acidic/astringent/dry on the tongue with a really long dry bitter (and slightly leafy) finish (4-). I liked it quite a bit indeed - will have this again my next trip to V&V.

blankboy (6018) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2010
Draught at Vices et Versa. Pours a very slightly hazy yellow-gold, quite bubbly, and with an average size lasting off-white head. Nice hoppy and fruity aroma. Flavour’s nice and hoppy, fruity, refreshing even. Long, dry bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Great stuff.

DerWeg (1493) - 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.

Quevillon (2465) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2011
Drank on tap (20 oz) at Vices et Versa (under the place’s name), on April 21, 2011. Misty blonde, medium head. Light hop aroma of citrus, a little dry. Hoppy bitter taste of grapefruit, hints of sweet citrus, good bitterness. A good APA with bite!

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2011
Bouteille 341ml. De couleur dorée-foncée et légèrement voilée. Nez fruité (agrumes, notes de mangues, traces d’abricots), de houblon citrique (pamplemousse), légèrement herbeux (herbes fraîches) et légèrement résineuse (branche de sapin), malté de caramel doux avec des notes de biscuits. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture moyennement crémeuse et aux petites notes résineuses. Moyen goût fruité (agrumes, notes d’abricots, faibles traces de mangue) accompagné de notes épicées (poivre doux) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel légèrement sucré avec un léger goût de biscuits. Parallèlement l’on retrouve une moyenne amertume assez asséchante de houblon citrique et très légèrement floral qui progresse durant la gorgée pour devenir léger-moyen résineux et légèrement herbeux (herbes fraîches) en finale. Post-goût long et sec, moyennement amer de houblon citrique, légèrement résineux et herbeux avec des notes florales et fruitées (zest d’agrumes).

rederic (2908) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2011
On tap at Vices & Versa, slight honey gold hue, with a white head, nice zesty citrusy, orange, limon, soapy floral tropical fruit hoppy notes in the nose, with some faint piney, leafy accents in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a good, yeasty, flowery tropical, zesty, citrus, leafy, grassy hop character, with some lemon, grapefruit rind, lychee, pear, mango hoppines flavours, leading towards a zesty, tropical fruity, citrusy hoppy bittering finish.

RogertheKid (90) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2013
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.
