Bière légèrement plus alcoolisée aux reflets roux orangés à l'amertume prononcée et au nez floral. Ce classique anglais fut jadis concocté ainsi dans le but de faciliter l'exportation dans les colonies britanniques, entre autres aux Indes, d'où son appellation.

Johnsense (794) - - MAY 7, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2011 Fairly fresh bomber from the brewery. Pours copper/amber colour with a 2 finger head that disappeared quickly but laced as the glass emptied. Aroma of Piney Hops nicely balanced with Sweet malts. Taste of Pine Hops and enough Biscuit Malts, Caramel and a bit of spice to ensure this is not a hop bomb, but an IPA for fans of balance. Bitter, but not to the point of destroying your tongue, Medium Bodied, creamy with low carbonation. HoST is one of Quebec’s better brewers and this IPA is well balanced, though on tap the citrus is more prominent.

Bouteille 750 ml. 6.5%. Couleur ambrée-orange, mousse beige aux teintes orange pâle abondante. Arôme de houblon frais, malt torréfié et caramel. En bouche, une beauté...houblon frais, un peu de citrus, malt, un peu de caramel. Finale amère mais pas trop...quel équilibre !

Pours copper with an off white head. Smells of wildflowers, some citrus, some peppery hints, spicy, some funky elements. Tastes citrussy and slightly bitter with some nice dry elements I can’t come up with a god descriptor for and an earthy finish. I’m REALLY liking this brewery’s beers.

Le liquide a une robe cuivrée rougeâtre. La tête mousseuse est splendide avec une belle rétention. Au nez, des parfums de conifère et de résine s’élèvent pour rencontrer dans leur tourbillon des vapeurs florales et subtilement fruitées. En arrière-plan, prêt à éclore dans sa belle discrétion, un malt sucré somme tout assez propre. Le goût est dominé par de bonnes saveurs de houblons, toujours aussi près des arômes, avec du pin, de la résine, des fleurs et une légère embrassade d’agrumes. Une amertume très plaisante se manifeste, assez longue, tout de même intense mais jamais dérangeante ni belliqueuse. Le corps malté est davantage plus apparent que dans les parfums avec ses saveurs de céréales légèrement sucrées qui touchent promptement les saveurs amérisantes et parfumées des houblons. En bouche, le liquide a un corps moyen avec une effervescence modérée et une texture à la limite crémeuse. En finale, les quelques notes maltées qui s’élèvent sont rapidement rattrapées par de belles et assez longues morsures opérées par les houblons.

manuchampions (1236) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2011
Draught at Volo. Pours a medium brown with little to no head, light body. There is citrus in the aroma, melon, cantaloupe. Floral aroma also with wonderful yeast. Invitingly complex. Flavour is earthy with grapefruit, citrus, lemon zest, grass. Very pleasing and balanced. A most excellent IPA and one of the better ones out of Quebec that I have tried so far.

Growler. I found this beer to be very plain and devoid of that great citrusy/piney/resiny hop characteristic usually associated with IPAs.

Bov (9467) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 26, 2010
@Mondial de la Bière 2010, Strasbourg - hazy blond colour with a solid pale beige foam left; fairly hoppy with notes of caramel and citrus, almond and honey; medium to full-bodied; fairly bitter but not in an aggressive way; long flowery and fruity notes in a lingering hoppy finish - balanced

On tap at Vices et Versa (Montréal, QC). Hazy amber body with low carbonation and a lasting off-white creamy head. Its hoppy aroma carries malty and melon hints. Sharp hoppy taste with fruity and oaky notes. Ends with a decent bitter finish. Well done!
