Dorée et légèrement cuivrée, cette version de la InsPirAtion est assez voilée et présente un collet de mousse peu abondant, mais qui refuse de partir. Un nez très équilibré de houblons résineux et de malt, cette bière fut mon coup de coeur de La Cuvée 2014. Très facile à boire, des houblons fruités et épicés prennent position dans la bouche, laissant toutefois une place de choix à la céréales et à un soupçon de sucres résiduels. Profil aromatique très similaire à la Yakima du Castor. Merveilleuse!

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.

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.

Quevillon (2927) - 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!

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.

lesifflebiere (1692) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2014
Couleur ambre, fruitée tropicale en nez, belle mousse blanche à la surface. Plus herbacée que prévu en nez, elle démontre une certaine minceur lorsque les malts finissent par apparaître, mais l’amertume houblonnée est exquise. Une IPA assez neutre côté originalité, mais savoureuse et addictive sur tous les autres points.

Houblon très présent. Belle complexité et rondeur. Un peu acide en fin de bouche, mais tellement désaltérante! Très bonne upa ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
