COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cette bière rend hommage aux arômes puissants du houblon de la côte Ouest, cultivé à l’est de la chaîne de montagnes des Cascades. Nous en ajoutons plusieurs variétés à différentes étapes du brassage. Leurs arômes d’agrumes, accentués par le houblonnage à cru, viennent joyeusement égayer la rondeur des malts utilisés (pâle et Munich). //// This beer is a celebration of the mighty West Coast hop, grown east of the Cascade mountains. Multiple varieties are used in this ale, at several different points in the brewing process. With emphasis on late hop & dry hop additions, we serve up tropical fruit and citrus flavours & aromas on a bed of pale and Munich malt.

Pours a cloudy light gold color, could pass for a Hefeweizen on appearance alone. Leaves intricate lacing as you progress. Aroma is an exquisite bouquet of American hops, and lots of them. Detecting some Chinook, Cascades, maybe some Simcoe and maybe some Citra? Difficult to detect any malt on the nose. Taste is a rush of hoppy goodness. Not too malty, not too dry and no overwhelming caramel flavors. Great balance. Nice long bitter finish. Even 30 minutes after having the last sip, I’m still tasting the bitterness. (Love that.) Mouthfeel and carbonation are dead on for the style. Many average examples of this style are over-carbonated, not this one. These boys have got the details down. Seriously well-crafted west coast IPA. Well-deserving of the current 100/100 rating. This could give many US brewers a run for their money.

Pours bright gold into a shaker. Bright white head with good retention recedes to coat surface. Bread, caramel and citrus aromas. Well balanced with sweet caramel and bread upfront turning to lemon and grapefruit in the lasting earthy finish.

Bottle. Brown pour with decent white head. Aroma is aromatic dank hops that reminds me Hill Farmstead’s IPA. There is also grassy and citrusy notes along with juniper berries. Taste is citrusy and grassy hops. Very crisp and enjoyable. Almost as good as the best examples of the style. My favourite Quebec IPA.

RickTheRick (467) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
Blonde dorée et assez trouble, une dentelle gommante gracieuseté de la mousse généreuse se colle aux parois du verre. Un véritable punch houblonné dégageant des notes résineuses, herbacées et fruitées explose au nez. Je ne dis pas souvent que quelque chose "goûte le ciel", mais ça, c’est pas mal le paradis des hopheads. Agrumes, herbe mouillée, résine de houblon ... un petit bijou pour les papilles, une bière très équilibrée au niveau de l’aromatique et de l’amer. Presque parfaite.

Arcanor (86) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
From Les Marchands de Bières, 660ml bottle, poor golden clear with small head, big hoppy nose but a bit less hoppy on the fist sip, nice finish.

Bouteille 660 ml. Achetée au Peluso. Depuis le temps qu’on m’en parlait, j’ai enfin eu l’occasion d’y gouter. Loin d’être déçu, posiblement la meilleure IPA au Québec. Belle robe ambré-orangée, surmontée d’un épais collet blanc mousseux qui laisse une belle dentelle. Arôme: tarte aux fruits rouges, houblon westcoast, résine, fleurs. On retrouve tous ces éléments dans le goût. Amertume bien dosée. Finale sèche.

shaynsawchuk (558) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2014
650 mL bottle. Pale golden in the glass with a touch of yeast haze. Hop forward notes of papaya, pineapple, peach, orange and pine resin all backed by a nice bready malt backbone that features some honey and cereal tones. Surprisingly well balanced. Bitter, but not aggressively. It’s all held well in check by the malty sweetness. Fairly dry. Light to moderate carbonation with medium body and a lingering bitter mouth feel. If only I could figure out how they get so much flavor into such a small package.
