COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cette IPA noire est une démonstration de la fraternité entre brasseurs & de notre passion commune pour les houblons. 1 castor + 1 caribou = 30¢. Québec, d’un bout à l’autre. L’objectif de ce projet était de créer une interprétation unique, hop-centrique, avec un caractère rôti assez léger. Beaucoup de variétés de houblon différents ont été utilisés, la plupart en dry-hop - au niveau d’une double IPA. Avec un pied dans l’hiver, et un qui pointe vers l’été, nous espérons que vous apprécierez cette bière printanière, qui a été créé avec un esprit de camaraderie s’étendant à travers la largeur de la province de Québec!

Premièr brassin, du Castor. Arômes de gros houblons côte ouest. C’est intense et fruité. En bouche, pas de changement, du houblon puissant, un côté black pratiquement absent. On pourrait presque dire que c’est une Yakima noire. Excellente si on ne se fie qu’au goût. Pour le "black", on repassera. Version Pit Caribou: Houblon moins goûteux que le Castor. Torréfaction plus présente et la bière semble plus ronde. Moins bonne que la version Castor mais quand même excellente. Se rapproche plus d’une black ipa par contre.

7.11.2014. Like cola. Fresh aroma with pineapple, passion, slight pine. Pine in taste, slight roast, slightly stuffy hops. Balance between roast and hops is not that pleasant.

Bouteille de 660ml. Arôme quelque peu timide mais frais et agréable. Col mince. Belle couleur noire intense. En bouche c’est un parfait équilibre. Enveloppante, juste assez amère. Un délice!

Gluepot (149) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2015
Sampled the 2015 Nelson Sauvin version of this collaborative beer. Thick off-white head on a black body. Some grass, fruit and malt on the nose. Taste features a nice blend of fruity, grassy and floral hops, roasted malt, a hint of alcohol warmth, a touch of chocolate and a little rich caramel. Well crafted and integrated. A really tasty, but not cheap, black IPA.

medium body, creamy, soft carbonation, bitter, black, cloudy, frothy, overall an excellent production coming from two of the best microbreweries in Quebec. With it’s aroma of coffee and chocolate, the bitterness of the IPA gives it a nice finish that reminds a bit of grapefruit and pinetree. Excellent quality product and it’s nice to know that Pit Caribou might make it accessible again. Good job, boys, you made my day !

manuelMTL (238) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2015
Pours a deep black with a thin brown head. Nose is citrus hops with a hint of roasted malts. Some breadiness too. Grassy hops with tropical fruits in the mouth. Not much roasted flavors. Tasty black IPA with only light roasted notes.
