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.

On tap at the brewhouse. Sample size. Amber color with thin white head. Really hoppy aroma, spicy taste balanced by caramalised malt that combines for a great bitterness, and a really great IPA.

600ml bottle from Halles St-Jean. Aroma: citrus, tropical fruits and a tad of caramel and pines. app: slight hazy copper, medium frothy head. Taste and palate: smooth and resin moderate body, medium carbonation, light to medium bitterness but could be related to bottle not fresh. Overall: a great surprise, wasn’t expecting much and got way more. Lovely aroma and appearance, taste and palate could be a tad more bitter and less creamy but again might be the freshness of the beer, next time I’ll make sure to buy it fresh.

miquelcrush (1514) - Granollers, SPAIN - DEC 8, 2014
Cervesa amb un lleuger aroma afruitat, també ho té en gust, és lleugera i amb un toc amarg. Cerveza con un ligero aroma frutado, también lo tiene en sabor, es ligera y con un toque amargo.

Bov (9799) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 1, 2014
from la Mise en BIère - cloudy dark orange beer under a giant and long lasting white foam; nice lace; fruity hoppiness of grapes and star fruits; fizzy and lively palate; medium-bodied, some sour tartness and pretty bitter; long and dry hoppy finish of tropical fruits; fresh

VincentDamon (370) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2014
Bière d’un jaune paille opaque, exhaussé d’une mousse généreuse. Nez puissant d houblons avec des notes résineuses d’agrumes et de fruits tropicaux. En bouche, c’est punché et sec. Notes résineuses, avec de l’ananas. Notes de sapin également. Excellent produit, mais dans le style, je préfère personnellement les ipa moins sèches et résineuses. Cheers!

At Cask Days 2014. Rich caramel malt, tropical fruit, nuts, dry hoppy finish. Smooth and flavorful IPA with a nice hop/malt balance.

Speedy_Charly (74) - Plaisance, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2014
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.

bunget (573) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
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.
