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.

pumpkinhead2 (559) - Longueuil, Quebec, - JUL 19, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 Bière jaune foncée, presque orangée, remplie de particules, effervescence moyenne, surmontée d’une abondante mousse blanche qui s’étiole lentement sur les parois du verre. Arômes intenses de divers houblons (floral et citronné, avec des herbes et de l’épinette), derrière lesquels semble se dissimuler un léger malt grillé et certains effluves de caramel salé. En bouche, c’est plutôt mince au palais, surtout considérant le style. Au goût, c’est tout en houblon! Houblon floral, citron, pamplemousse, ananas et résine. Mais où est donc le malt? L’amertume est intense et colle longtemps sur le derrière de la langue. Selon moi, cette bière manque clairement d’équilibre, beaucoup trop de houblon pour le malt, mais je reconnais qu’il s’agit néanmoins d’une bonne bière.

Very good brew. Pours a bright golden orange with a heavy off white head, tons of lacing. The aroma is very fruity with a pinch of pine and a decent caramel and toasted malt base. Well balanced hops to malt. Nice tart grapefruit, pineapple and tropical fruits are light. Pine is light but quite resinous on the finish. Bitterness is moderate and lingers for a little bit. Nice brew.

mkel07 (4299) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle from Wine Emporium, Newstead, 260615. Super carbonated and lively in the glass. Piney aromas fill the nose. Takes a while for the head to settle. Golden colour appears beneath the foam. Slightly resinous but not overly hoppy. Just the way I like it.

Gluepot (130) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2015
The nose features grapefruit and citrus accents on a light orange/brown body with a soft off-white head. This is a refreshing and fresh tasting IPA. Taste elements include floral and citrus hops, light, sweet malt and a softening hint of melon. The medium to high carbonation is appropriate and helps create a zesty and fresh taste profile. The body is a classic light to medium IPA texture and the balances extend to the end of the taste experience. Well done.

I think it’s trying to be an APA blended with Belgian influences. It certainly works well!

Wow, cette IPA du Trou du Diable est vraiment excellente, parfaitement équilibrée entre le coté sucré des fruits et l'amertume du houblon qui finalisse chaque gorgées, vraiment impeccable ! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beardbeerman (256) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
Pours a hazy golden topped by a huge frothy white head showing great retention and lacing properties. The nose is fruity, orange, grapefruit, muskmelon. Some honey sweetness. The taste is fruity and sweet and well balanced The brew is full-bodied but shows timid carbonation. The finish presents a lingering mellow grassy bitterness and faint tartness. Pretty good beer overall and a good partner for the BBQ. Cheers!
