La IPA Américaine de Pit Caribou est orange, un peu trouble et à la mousse fine qui colle bien au verre. Le nez me rappelle la Double IPL de Jack Abby’s, ohh doux souvenirs.. De la salade de fruits, ananas, papaye, bref c’est tropical ! Le goût ne suit pas tout à fait le nez. L’amertume frappe le fond de la langue en entrée. C’est très, très, très floral, avec un peu de sucre qui adoucit le tout. Elle devient plus fruitée à 9-10’C, c’est tout à notre avantage de la laisser patienter un peu !

Bottle from Halles St-Jean. Thanks Julie. Aroma: citrus, grapefruits, touch of pines. App: hazy pale with small white head. Taste and palate: creamy, resin, dry medium bitter finish. Overall: pretty awesome IPA. Drank a few times before and will sure drink again.

gramity (1456) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2014
Cloudy golden body with a thin white creamy head. Sharp hoppy aroma with citrusy, grapefruit, and flowery hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its sharp hoppy taste carries piney, citrusy, and some woody notes. Ends with a long, robust bitter finish.

Alexd8 (38) - Notre-Dame-de-la-Salette, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2014
Ambre profond. Mousse fine, éphémère. Surprise, le caramel et le toffee attaque les narines en premier. Ensuite l’épinette, la brioche, l’orange et l’abricot. Attaque franche et riche, texture ample se déposant rondement sur la langue avec des amers frais et tranchants. Bel équilibre entre le houblon et le malt qui est plutôt présent pour une IPA. Les noix fraîches et l’abricots reviennent en force en rétro. Bien!

Spab (2573) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
660 ml bottle from St. Nicholas Metro. Pours a cloudy orange colour with lots of tiny floaties and moderate-sized cream-coloured head. Aroma is resiny and citrusy hops as well as a big caramel maltiness. Flavour is big pine resin, solid citrus, good caramel malt backbone and a little graininess. Plus body. Nice.

Pours deep amber with medium tan head. No is citrusy hops. Aromas are resinous pine, citrus and some toasty notes. Medium body, medium carbonation. Long bitter and citrusy finish. Complex and aromatic IPA, love this one! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

swoopjones (6214) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2014
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

HippyHop (267) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
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.

Tessic (906) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
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.
