A great IPA by a Quebec brewer. Finally found one. Aroma is hop, not intense but smooth and tapered. Taste is again a smooth hop bitterness that plays with the mouth not abuses. I kind of thought 66IBU might be more abrasive but it wasn’t anywhere I thought it would be.

godofsky (264) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2010
341ml bottle from Peluso, into pint glass. pours a deep clear copper and leaves a thick creamy head with good retention. aroma is a bit sweet, and grassy with lots of hops. taste is dominated by the cascade hops, very nice. great mouthfeel, a solid IPA and yet another excellent brew from Simple Malt.

blankboy (5798) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2010
Bottle [341ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a clear deep orange with a small off-white head. Decent hoppy aroma, piney and floral, along with caramel malt and fruit. Nice hoppy flavour backed by biscuity malt, simple but pleasant. Decent bitter finish. Average bodied. Pretty good, one of the better Simple Malts so far.

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2010
In short: A well malted and very bitter floral/citrusy/resinous IPA. Nice brew.
How: Bottle 341ml. Consumed fresh a month or two after the beer release
The look: Clear dark golden body topped by a medium off-white with medium retention
In long: Nose is rather floral with some fruity notes. The beer is well malted with a nourishing body filled with biscuity malts. Toasted honey cookies and nice caramel. Lots of bitter hops with a floral, citric and citrusy flavour and a strong resinous character. The beer is relatively intense (considering this is just an IPA, not a IIPA) yet I could (and will) down many six-packs of this stuff with pleasure. Ha, Cascade hops, one of the most wonderful flower available to man. That didn’t work out to well on Valentine’s Day but I still stand by my beliefs.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 3, 2010
Bottle, from trade with Glouglouburp. Thanks Dany! Pours dark reddish-amber, with a thin but persistent white head, poor lacing. Nose is sweet, with a nice hoppiness about it, simple, but with the expected pine/citrus punch. Palate is better than the nose, perfect bitterness, nice grapefruit and resin character, bitter biscuity finish, reasonably chewy for an IPA. Decent. If this was local, I could see buying it regularly.

TheJester (1727) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2010
341 mL bottle. Very informative label even tell you what sort of glass to use. Hazy copper with a thick film of head. Lots of cascade in the aroma, along with some pretty strong malty notes and possibly even a touch of alcohol. Citrussy malt and caramel hit the tongue simultaneously, although the hops are the dominant flavour throughout. There is some spice in there as well, seemingly from the malt. You can taste lemon along with the bitterness in the lingering finish. Excellent body. This IPA is more interesting than most, since the brewers have paid attention to the malts, as well as the hops.

piscator34 (1888) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 9, 2010
Bottled sample via lubiere. Bunt orange in colour with medium carbonation. Loads of cascade hops on the nose with notes of pine resin, fresh cut wood, a bit of white grapefruit backed by some slightly buttery caramel malts. The hops are very assertive in the mouth as well, but more within the pine, black pepper, and leaffy end of the spectrum. Some grapefuit and caramel elements are present as well, along with a grain husk, earth, and papery bitter finish. Satisfying overall, but a bit crude, especially on the back end.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2010
Bouteille 341ml. De couleur cuivrée et claire. Nez de houblon citrique (pamplemousse), légèrement floral aux notes résineuses et herbeuses, malté de caramel doux et légèrement fruité (agrumes). Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement résineuse. Goût moyen-amer de houblon citrique (pamplemousse) et aux notes florales (une amertume présente toute la gorgée) avec un moyen-léger goût fruité (agrumes) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût malté de caramel sucré avec des traces de biscuits terreux puis en finale l’on retrouve un regain d’amertume de houblon citrique moyennement asséchant, légèrement résineux et aux notes herbeuses. Post-goût moyen-long et un peu sec, moyen-amer de houblon citrique, légèrement résineux et aux notes herbeuses ainsi qu’avec un léger goût fruité (zest d’agrumes).

Bottle. Moderately flowery aroma with good backing malt. Nice malt, then spice and hops throughout particularly in the finish. Nice moderate IPA. Well balanced. Tasty hops, sweetness and nice biscuity malt.
