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.

Bottle courtesy of SlovakSniper. Poured out an amazingly filthy amber full of ultra fine sediment and a crazy ass light tan foam up that has pretty much ruined my glass. The initial aroma was a bit different than I expected (that is after I discovered this was as IPA) but things have settled down now. The aroma is pretty strong and in my face. Huge sweet fruits - nectarine, orange candy, pineapple that reminds me of the ooooold Pop Shoppe pineapple pop we used to get at home on occasion when I was little. Caramel and floral with a light spice, peaches and rrgf and feet. Way way too much hard foamy carbonation going on here. Pretty good taste. Big ass bitterness. Peaches, caramel, bread crusts, perma-bitterness, peach, nectarine, light pine, more bitterness, bit of herb, pretty good and a bit something something. Long orange fruit related finish but just way to much carbonation. Pretty good IPA.

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!

Syboire (1) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2015 does not count
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 (241) - 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!
