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.

Bottle from Veux-Tu freshly picked and drank. A good tasting IPA, with lots of malt backbone holding back the 75 IBU impact until the last half of the bottle. Very good drinkability. Lots of head. Recommended.

660 ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with lots of white head. Nose is pine and citrus rind galore with some sweet honey-malty notes. Taste follows the nose, assertive bitterness and lots of flavour that lingers. Mouthfeel is just right. Great IPA.

Bought this one a while back and was getting worried that it would be off. Not so, it was dead on! Hops, hops and more hops! Aromas of citrus, grapefruit and lemon lime. Huge, everlasting, off white head with excellent lacing over a moderate amber body. Bitter sweet through and through. Long sweet yet bitter finish. Medium body, dry texture and lively carbonation. This one is definitely in my top I.P.A’s

Arômes et goût d’agrumes bien présent. Amerturme présente mais juste assez. Bière rafraichissante. Excellente IPA.

Nez de conifères et de pamplemousse. Robe jaune-orangée un peu trouble surmontée d’un petit col mi-onctueux. Amertume longue en bouche. Goût frais pamplemoussé. Soupçon d’abricot, d’orge, de pain. Une bien bonne IPA.

Pour rendre hommage aux arômes puissants du houblon de la côte ouest elle rend hommage !!! Car c’est certainement la ou une des meilleur I.P.A de style Américain qu’on a sur les tablettes au Québec ! Comme les autres bonne I.P.A, elle possède un nez fort d’agrumes(pamplemousse), des fruits tropicaux(mangue,ananas) et une amertume tranchante du côté herbeux(gazon coupé). En bouche, les mêmes saveurs se présentent avec un bon goût de malt pale et de céréales, bien balancé, très amère, sèche et complexe à souhait ! Bref, il faut bien que j’aille me tremper les papilles en Californie !!! Ca doit être le paradis sur Terre ! Sur ce , PROOST Le Castor vous avez l’houblon dans le sang !

Slightly hazy warm golden colour, white head. Fruity aroma, quite hoppy, grapefruit, tropical fruits. Bitter flavour, hops, quite fruity. Fruity finish, lingering bitter. Decent IPA.

Bottle courtesy of Paul. Pours a hazy golden orange with thick white head. Aroma is fresh tropical fruits, melon, pineapple, pine and light dank character. Mouthfeel is medium with soft bitterness, pine, melon, tropical dankness and wheat. Really nice clean malt balances the tropical hop profile.

App: Golden orange, frothy 2 fingers head dissipating into a thin coat leaving tons of lacing around the inside of the glass. Nice carbonation. Very lovely presentation. Nose: Grapefruit, citrus rind, tangerine, pine, a bit of dankness, tropical fruits maybe a bit of pineaple and mango. Hops up front, the malts are very suddle, acting more like a canvas for the hops. Taste: Grapefruit juice, tangerine, lime zest, a bit piney and earthy in the finish. Solid West Coast Style IPA - Basicly everything you would expect. Nice balance between the fresh fruit and the green notes. Clean, crisp finish. This is right on the money. Truly one of the best IPA in Quebec at the moment. This brew met my expectation. Well done, Le Castor ! 94/100 (Overall) 95/100 (IPA) Picture: Yakima IPA - Microbrasserie Le Castor http://instagram.com/p/yGQks4Jov3 Follow Me On Instagram @simonsays2k9
