La Côte Ouest est une IPA Blonde qui s’inspire des IPA Californienne. Le Brassage débute avec une bonne dose de houblons Américains à l’ébullition. Ensuite on utilise le Hop Back remplit à pleine capacité pour en extraire le maximum d’arômes. Et pour terminer en beauté on dry-hop 3 fois avec un mélange de Amarillo, Citra et Centennial ce qui en résulte une bière aromatique avec une texture résineuse et balancée avec une bonne amertume.

Bottle (500 ml) at home. Split 2-ways. Clear bright golden with a medium fully lasting white head leaving good lacing. Aroma is nicely hoppy (leafy and melony) but like mathieuc noticed the alcohol is surprisingly present for a 7% abv IPA. Taste is also melon and leafy hops forward with a good malt backbone that is solid but doesn’t take the front role but here again the alcohol is a tad too present for my liking. There’s also a mild spiciness as well as mangoes and tropical fruits. Medium body. Medium carbonation. A bit oily mouthfeel. Finish is a tad hot but also dry. It’s good, but with the alcohol toned down a bit it would be really good. Nice hop mix.

Pours a hazy golden with a medium white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of melon, leafy hops, slight alcohol and quite fragrant. Taste is lightly sweet and moderately bitter with fruity hops and melon again. Slight bubblegum/perfume. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is vaguely sticky. Alcohol shows a bit too much for a 7% brew. Not bad at all but maybe a bit too big for its own good. Can we get a session IPA next?

Bouteille de 500ml (oui, bouteille...enfin!!!) au Marché des Brasseurs. Blonde pâle et trouble surmontée d’un mince col de mousse blanche qui laisse une fine dentelle. Arômes de fruits tropicaux (pêches, mangues) sur des notes de houblon légèrement sapiné et frais. L’amertume est beaucoups plus présente en bouche qu’au nez. Liquide moyen de corps, il attaque les gencives avec une amertume sapinée plus importante que le 45 d’IBU ne laissait présager. Les fruits tropicaux remontent à la surface à mesure que la bouche s’assèche et laissent une longue finale de pêches/mangues qui remontent aussi en rétro olfaction. Pas essayé la version pression au pub, mais cette version bouteille fera sûrement des adeptes...

Pour is burnt orange with a fluffy white cap that leaves some great lace. Nose is.....very orange-y. Orange and orange rind and orange blossom and orange juice. I know exactly what reviews below mean by old/overripe tangerines. There's also grapefruit, fresh flowers, and some biscuity malt. Floral hops come through even more on the taste. This stuff is really weird because I feel like it's baby steps away from being great, and also baby steps away from being undrinkable. I like these guys, but this stuff might need a little tweaking. Still weirdly drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Big fluffy white head. Hazy straw colour. Green apple / Acetaldehyde. Very disappointing flavour and aroma, especially for something that has been dry hopped three times. Very weak / non existent hop presence besides the bitterness. Can’t believe this is the same beer I’ve had on tap, normally fantastic. This batch is either off or they are having issues with bottling.

On tap on the premise. Pours very hazy blond with low white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of alcohol, turpentine, fusels, weird tangerines (hops?). Taste is of alcohol, melt plastics, turpentine, iodine, rotten clementines. Fruits, bitterness. Palate: Light-medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Hard to drink. Not for me, something seems wrong.

czar (6211) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2015
on tap on the premises. cloudy if not milky light golden with a small white cap, not quite reviving nor lacing. danky clementines, almost rotten mandarines, grapefruit, melons, doughy and chewy pale cereals. light carbonation, light to medium body - oily and smooth; balanced melon-citrusy finish. needless to say, it is unique. or something happened in the process.

Eructoblaster (3476) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2015
En fût au Pub Chelsea (Chelsea, QC). Robe dorée, subtilement voilée et coiffée d’un col blanc, crémeux et dûrable. Arôme houblonné frais et agrémenté de notes maltées, d’agrumes et de grain. Son goût houblonné et bien équilibré s’accompagne de nuances herbacées et d’agrumes. Longue finale amère. Très bien.

Sample @Bières et Saveurs. Aroma: tropical fruits, piney on a nice orange background. App: huge white head with ok retention, great lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, light sweetness, resinous, even velvety, medium bitter finish. Overall: great balance between the piney and fruity taste. Enjoyed every sip of this sample.
