La Foublonne est une bière d’inspiration américaine aux reflets orangés quasi rougeoyants. Bien houblonnée, elle nous dévoile de riches arômes floraux et maltés, suivis d’une finale très poignante d’agrumes. Les amateurs de bières houblonnées seront comblés.

I’m sort of surprised by the low-ish scores on it. Also sort of surprised by the comments that it’s a "typical IPA". It’s nothing revolutionary, but I find this is a refreshing break from my usual citrus/tropical fruit-bomb West Coast IPAs. Pour is a light caramel colour with a two-finger ecru (that’s right) cap. Retention and lacing are both solid. Nose is faint, but still surprisingly punchy for a beer that was bottled February 25th. Fresh pine and flowers, slightly soapy, subtle lemon/orange citrus, caramel, almost rye-like peppery spice. Taste is medium-sweet/medium-bitter, chewy carame malt, tingly pepper, pine, orange, light soap (am I the only one who enjoys a bit of soap in my beer?). As others have noted there’s something missing here. To me the malt has a bit of a....watery patch? But it’s tasty, and close to being delicious. Body is medium, creamy/oily, carbonation is fizzy, finish is long and (a touch too) bitter, with lingering pine/citrus peel (or pith? The **** do I know?). At any rate, I think this stuff is a bit of a hidden gem.

Ipa d'entre deux: solide amertume, mais pas trop forte. Pas exceptionnelle mais se bois bien

Dark copper pour, big off white head. Aroma of caramel malts, slightly sweet, candied orange peel, and orange zest. Carb, and mouth feel as very soft. Finish is medium bitter, and it lingers quite long. Lots of sweet candied citrus notes, juicy, and sweet. Not over tye top, but still very pleasant.

HonkeyBra (3707) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a dark reddish amber with a medium off white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, orange peel, mild pine and resinous hops. Flavor is malt forward, balanced, with mild citrus bitterness. Lively carbonation makes the mouthfeel more crisp. Finishes with a small amount of bitterness. Overall, a drinkable IPA.

blankboy (6521) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a hazy dark copper with a large lasting frothy beige head. Some lacing. Aroma of hops, citrusy, floral and spicy (quite peppery), along with bready malt and some fruit. Flavour of floral and peppery hops, citrus fruit, bready malt and a long moderate bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Simple but enjoyable enough.

Décevante IPA. Nez presque absent, arôme léger de grains pales. Elle m'a laissé sur mon appétit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cargo150 (1003) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 17, 2013
Bière de couleur ambrée foncée avec un col moyennement mousseux et résistant blanc. Nez moyennement complexes de fruits tropicaux de caramel et de houblons. En bouche le début est très fin fruité mangue,pêche,agrumes et caramélisé. Une finale beaucoup trop amère. Une bonne bière mais mal balancée.
