On tap at brewpub. A cloudy amber with a nice white head. Aroma is lemon, caramel. Flavor is caramel, fruits, cereals. Finish is loads of lemon, orange, grapefruit. Medium body, average carbonation. Pretty solid.

My Bottom Line:
Polished citrus fruit hint at lemongrass spiciness in this lean and juicy IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the misty pale amber.
-The soft carbonation and svelte mouthfeel make for supreme drinkability.
-Malts are a little toasty underneath.
-Bitterness is a bit resinous and mostly not oppressive.

On tap at the brewpub.

In short: A nourishing, sweet, bitter and fruity IPA of superior quality.
How: Tap at brewpub.
The look: Clear shining golden body topped by a persistent small
In long: The moderately aromatic nose is mostly hoppy and proposes all kind of fruits (tropical and others). Medium body with a medium carbonation, typical clean mouthfeel I expect from a medium size thirst beer. In mouth the beer gains in intensity. Starts with semi-sweet honeyed and caramelized cereals. Then a truckload of hops, tropical fruits, exotic fruits, grass juice. A commanding bitterness. Hops resin in the comeback. Overall sensation of hops essence. Listed as a Citra IPA at the pub but somehow I didn’t find it to be typical Citra IPA compared to the slew of Citra IPAs I’ve been drinking in the past few years. A superior IPA nonetheless, my new favorite beer brewed in the beer wasteland that is Eastern Quebec. La Fabrique is truly a nice brewpub but I would hate to live in a small town like Matane because there’s nothing to do in small towns, whenever I’m in Matane I can’t wait to come back to Montreal to spend every night on my couch watching tv and drinking beer.

En fût. Verre de dégustation directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeur d’agrumes avec une pointe de caramel. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’garumes avec une pointe d’houblons résineux. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût houblonné. (Rating #4547)
