COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Au commencement, tout nous semble paisible : se présente à nous une rousse au col blanc tenace, à l’apparence plutôt commune. Mais déjà, à l’approche du nez nous vient le pressentiment que la chute sera violente. En bouche, on se laisse d’abord berner par un léger sucre caramélisé rapidement envahi par une contre-attaque vive et rapide de houblon. Une amertume verte et intense nous envahit de toute part tandis que le petit goût de sucre caramélisé soutient un équilibre avec une délicieuse finale prenant l’allure de noisettes.

Bouteille 600ml au Marché des Brasseur. Blonde aux reflets cuivrés et trouble avec un bon col blanc persistant. Nez agrumeux avec un soupcon de houblon. Au goût, une amertume rappelant un peu le pamplemousse et la gomme d’épinette. mais courte en bouche avec une amertume peu aggressive. Elle laisse un souvenir de caramel sucré qui colle aux dents. Une APA très correcte et très buvable.

600ml bottle. Slightly hazy golden body, huge white fluffy head. Aroma of peaches and caramel, floral hops, grapes, honey, pineapple. Taste is equally smooth: honey, peaches, orange zest, pineapple, appropriate amount of herbal hops. Lovely.

Le Trou du Diable has to be one of my new favourite breweries as all the brews I have had have been solid ones. Everything they do seems to be very unique including this IPA. It pours a hazy amber colour with a small head. Aroma is awesome, as it smells of honey,floral hops, and a grand amount of tropical fruits. Taste is of citrus, light pine, mangos, and honey. The body was quite a surprise with low carbonation and very little bitterness, but a nice sweet tropical aftertaste. Great job.

Trou Du Diable is quickly winning my heart after a bro’s trip to N.B. scored us a slew of them for sampling. This was one of the upper echelon that we had, an unfiltered and hazy orange tipple with a light white head. Cool label that implies the beer may be more aggressive that it actually is. The scent of tropical hops, wheat and honey wafted nostrilwards leading to a mildly sweet grassy and floral taste interlaced swimmingly with mango, papaya and the like. Very smooth and low carbonation.

HippyHop (161) - CANADA - JUL 27, 2014
Labelled as a compulsive strong beer, it’s basically a badass IPA. Nose is big tropical fruit, notably pineapple, and citrus. Taste is a nice , sweet caramel malt with pineapple, orange, and a nice dry, piney finish. Really, really nice balance. This beer has the malt character that the Spearhead Hawaiian Pale Ale lacks, and it’s like an amplified version of TDD’s MacTavish IPA. Awesome beer.

stantheman (669) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014
On tap at St Augustine’s in Vancouver. A medium amber beer with a bit of whitish head. A nice balance of citrus and resinous hops with plenty of malts. 3.5.

Pours a cloudy straw with an enthusiastic persistent fluffy head and moderate sticky head. Nose is complex - citrus, pineapple, pine, biscuity malt, earthy herbal tones. Taste is similar, with grapefruit bitterness and pine resin, crackers, a slight herbal pepperiness, and an off-dry finish. Medium- to light-bodied, with low residual carbonation and a lingering bitterness. "Compulsive Strong Ale" indeed. It’s only 6.5%, so it’s hardly heavy-duty, but _la morsure_ ("the bite") comes from hops, not ABV - which is just the way I like it. Interestingly enough, the quote on the back of the bottle reads «Le bonheur est dans l’amertume» ("Happiness is in bitterness") which I think sums it up nicely. Got fairly thick with sediment towards the end of the bottle, but that’s hardly a negative for a bottle-conditioned ale. Pleasant and worth trying.

guil0000 (268) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 25, 2014
Pours a hazy golden color with a large white head. Citrus (grapefruit mainly) and tropical fruit aroma (mango) some pine and you get some hops in there also. Sweet malt on the taste. Medium bitterness, light bodied. Not bad.

fiulijn (14990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Deep blond color with compact head. Very strong aroma, hoppy, fruity (tropical fruits and muscatel grape). Lean body, the mouthfeel is rather dry; the malt profile is quite crispy, some toffee and water crackers; expectedly strong bitterness with nice citrusy edge; light residual sweetness in the final. Overall, just the perfect balance for its kind, and highly drinkable, and fresh.
You don’t need to search another IPA.
