An evolving recipe with every batch. Past examples have been using amarillo, citra and simcoe hops, sometimes in single varietal.

Sorachi Ace batch at Soirée des Brasseurs 2011 in Shawinigan. Deep orange blonde topped by a whitish head. Nice aromas of bitter orange and pepper. Low to medium body, medium bitterness, a little thin for an IPA, but the finale is very refreshing. More an APA in my opinion with its low bitterness in the mouthfeel, but still a very satisfying ale.

On tap at brewpub. Inspiration 11 5.5% abv Citra.
Appearance : Slightly hazy with a small creamy head. Nice lacing.
Aroma : Great floral and citrusy hops. Nice tropical fruits. Fresh and fruity.
Taste : Light caramel with nice malt and floral hops. Nice fruity notes. Resinous and bitter. A bit sticky on finish.
Overall : Intensely hoppy but rather drinkable. Nice tropical fruits coming from the cirta. Not too much caramel. Very well made.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2013 Verre de 10 oz, au Siboire, version Citra. Très beau nez de houblon rappelant les fruits tropicaux et les fleurs. Robe ambrée et légèrement trouble, petite dentelle et effervescence assez faible. Assez mince en bouche, de douces céréales caramélisées supportent le houblon fruité, moyennement aromatique. Texture légèrement aqueuse. Finale assez sèche, présentant une amertume résineuse d’intensité moyenne. Une bière intéressante et facile à boire.

My Bottom Line:
Pears and citrus fruit aplenty garnish this IPA’s plump cereals, taking you to a potent resinous bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the amber-y mist.
-This was very drinkable, but the flavor profile didn’t feel as polished as most Siboire brews.
-The resinous bitterness felt a little too coarse for my liking. The same aroma and flavor profile could have lead to a friendlier finish for more drinkability.
-The aromatic potential of this hop variety is truly wonderful.

On tap at the brewpub, as Inspiration 11 (100% Citra).

On tap at the brewpub. Copper colored pour with thin white head heavy lacing. Aroma is piney with pink grapefruit, a bit of earth too. Taste is very bitter, lots of piney hops, very hop forward, deliciously unbalanced. Palate is very dry, some alcohol presence. Good IPA.

Sammy (10664) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2010
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Sheets of lace, a white head on an orange tintedbody with lots of lace left. Hoppy aromas from Williametic. Carbonation right there. Decent IPA but would like a more agreeable mouthfeel. ome orange taste.

Quevillon (2811) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2012 Sample at "La Soirée des Brasseur" beer fest in Shawinigan on August 12, 2012. 100% Zythos hops (#23). Creamy blonde, medium head. Creamy aroma of raw grain, well hopped. Taste of green hops a little sweet and a little spicy, very good bitterness. A very solid and well-hopped IPA, that’s good!

Rastacouere (6166) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2010
Hazy amber ale covered by a tight and proud off-white foam. Good looks. Biscuity, toasty (and quite cerealic with a certain depth in that department) malt base supports the hop show going on above it all. While not the most perfumey IPA, this boasts a confident sprucey carnival, adorned with orangey notions aplenty. In mouth, their importance is magnified. The hops grow by the sip, entangling the back of the tongue with a rich bitterness, resinous, citrusy, insisting at length. Fresh, tasty and balanced by a full, engagingly carbonated palate. Exemplary IPA, possibly better than any bottled Québec IPA.
