Top American style IPA in Quebec! Aroma of citrus, spruce, grass. Orange color, very small light head, almost no sweet, but a heavy bitterness. Creamy texture, and a bitter finish. A very well made IPA. f you like west coast IPA, you will surely enjoy this beer. Bravo Pit Caribou!

sample at Festbiere du Quebec, Quebec City, orangish pour, fuller bodied. citrusy & piney hops, solid bitterness, substantial malty backbone but it still let hops shine. Nice IPA

This stuff is the bee’s knees. Pours orange with a nice foamy cap I’m gonna call ecru. Nose is pine, citrus, tropical fruit, caramel. Taste is bread, caramel, sweet tropical fruit, a bit of spice with a pine/grapefruit finish. The mouthfeel on this beer is so deliciously chewy - a sweet, heavy caramel malt that’s hopped to all hell with a variety of hops. It’s so close to being an IIPA, but whatever you call it this is about as good as it gets.

Poured a definitely ununfiltered cloudy orange with a massive billowing white head. Condiderable lacing being left in its wake. Aromas are of strong citrus, and orange peel. Tastes of bitter orange and a caramel malt backbone.Overall I’d chalk this one up as yet another quality brew from Pit Caribou, which is quickly becoming one of my favourite Quebec breweries.

This IPA poured a cloudy orange colour with a nice, big, frothy white head. Scents include pineapple orange citrus and a little spice. First sip was ripping with citrus hops. Orange, pineapple most pro dominant. Finish is very bitter with orange citrus lingering.

One of the best American-style IPAs I’ve had, a liberally hopped West Coast style IPA that has notes of pine, alfalfa and a hint of caramel. A very gritty IPA seeing that it’s unfiltered, you see a lot of sediment, which gives it an extra bite. It’s a bit heavier on my stomach than most IPAs out there, but this is proof that a microbrasserie from the Gaspé region can produce IPAs comparable to the West Coast. Hop forward, very bitter yet delicious. This and Le Castor’s Yakima IPA are easily on my top 5 Eastern Canadian IPA list.

blankboy (6051) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2014
[Bottle (660ml)] Pours a hazy golden-orange with a small lasting fizzy/frothy tan head. Aroma is nice and fruity along with a good amount of hops, a hint of spices and a touch of yeast. Lovely flavour, so fruity and hoppy -- there’s some alcohol there but it’s reasonably well hidden. Nice bitter finish. Medium bodied. I loved it.

dandeman (505) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
Olfactif: De beaux fruits tropicaux, du zeste d,orange, des agrumes, de légères notes de conifère, du gazon frais. Olfactif typique et complexe d’une bonne IPA. Visuel: Dorée / ambrée, légèrement floue. Mousse de bonne épaisseur, très dense, à longue persistance. les traces sur le verre sont évidentes. Gustatif: L’attaque est faite de houblons amers aux notes de conifères et de gazon. Le maintient reste dans l’amertume et la finale est intense et éternelle. Beaucoup d’amertume. Les fruits tropicaux et les notes orangées sont toujours présentes mais sensiblement diminuées par la puissance du gazon et des conifères. De consistance et d’effervescence moyenne, cette bière ravira les amateurs de grosse amertume mais décevra ceux qui recherchent une complexité de saveurs.

660 bottle. Bright hazy orange, like unpasteurized honey with a soapy white head. Deep and resinous with juicy candied orange, dank herb, dried mango, guava, peach and light caramel maltiness. A nice balance between sweet and bitter, and richly fruity. Moderate plus body with below average carbonation and a sticky mouth coating palate. Painfully good.
