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.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2011
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).

Rastacouere (6174) - 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.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2010
In short: A full body nourishing IPA with intense resinous coniferous hopping. Great brew.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy dark golden topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is intense with a lot of coniferous tree, you can smell that beer from a few feet away. Body is full with a lot of toasted cunchy/crisp caramelized cereals. A truckload of assertive confinerous hops with a strong resinous character. A light orange peel sensation. Strong bitterness. Light dryness. This is not a refreshing hop juice beer, this is a nourishing tasty IPA. Wow! This was a kick-ass IPA. Too bad this brewpub is 2 hour drive from my place. Because now I feel like a poor has-been rock star desperately trying to make a comeback, I’m depressed because I don’t have any Inspiration anymore.

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.

On tap (taster) @ Siboire Jacques-Cartier.

Appearance: Clear golden with a medium mostly lasting white head and some lacing.

Aroma: Burst of mango, passionfruit and watermelon with a light cereals presence and hints of resin. Superb and original!

Taste: Less explosive than the aroma, but still a beautiful presence of mango and passionfruit along resinous notes and light bitterness.

Palate: Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Mild lingering (a tad too much) bitter finish which might be the only flaw of this one.

Overall: This is the real deal! Very good aromatic IPA with an original mix of fruity notes. With some minor tweaks to the mouthfeel, this could be a world-class beer.
