Si je léchais la map de la côte Ouest des États-Unis, je suis sûr que ça goûterait le gros houblon sale, la résine herbeuse, le foin des langues capricieuses! Un peu comme la nouvelle IPA Américaine de Pit Caribou, distribuée dans une bouteille typiquement «made in USA», qui rappelle un peu les contenants de la brasserie californienne Stone. C’est bon, c’est frais et ça goûte la tondeuse juste comme on aime ça!

Bière très oublonnee, arôme intense de fruit de la passion. Sucrée à prime abord, puis entre la forter amertume (77 ibu) un délice, quelle odeur! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

silvorgold (26) - Brandon, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 11, 2014
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.

czar (4496) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2012
on tap at bateau de nuit, qc. hazy bright golden, orange tint, with a creamy white head, good retention and lacing. crisp, breadied malts, very hint of toastiness - complex. loads of citrus, tropical fruits, flowers, floral herbalness, hint of pine needles. warming alcohol - very well hidden, dangerously quaffable. average carbonation, prickly fun, medium body - definitely oily, very nice and balanced citrusy medium long finish. big league ipa.

Bottle guyon farm bought at a pricey 7.77 A: grapefruit, citrusy with some piny note. App: clear copper small white head. T/p: thin body with long bitter finish. Medium carbonation. O: superb bottle. Amazing the best ipa I had to date from Quebec. The price tag is the only negative part.

WOW. What a great surprise! Pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head and good lacing. Aroma is big citrus and grapefruit hops. Taste is a very pleasant citrus and grapefruit hop flavouring and bitterness with a fantastic balance with the honey and grassy malts. This better be a regular offering because I’ll be a regular buyer.

gildnerk (132) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 24, 2014
Hazy dark orange, almost a red, with a thin white head. Predominantly citrus and yeast aromas with some spice notes. Taste is dominated by fine grapefruit hops and a remarkable bitter aftertaste. Medium to high carbonation, very refreshing. Delicious.

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.

mathieuc (1391) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2012
Hazy golden with a small creamy head, pretty sure it is from all the hop oils. Smell is heavenly with piney/floral/herbal hops dominating. Taste is medium bitterness with malt taking a supportive role only. Hop bitterness lingers for a long while after each sip, in fact I believe it is just continuous right now. Pretty much the best IPA from Quebec I had this year and close to best overall IPA too... Not Pliny good, but goddamn close!
