English IPA, but with 62 IBUs.
Corpulente et maltée à souhait. Son riche bouquet fruité et floral est le produit de généreuses portions de cinq houblons reconnus pour leur finesse.

Dark copper color with a light beige quite foamy head. Great fruity, floral and nutty smells with hints of pine hops and grapefruits. Nice soft malty taste with aftertaste of earthy malt combine with a fair bitterness and a lack of acidity. Well done.

Bierdimpfe (179) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
Veiled dark amber, almost copper color, with subtle activity. Creamy light brown 2 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with good legs. Stout like aromas of biscuity caramel and roasted nuts. Flavors of toffee, molasses, nuts, apple, black pepper, herbal spices. Smoky woody feel with a strange stale bread taste having some sweetness but overwhelming bitterness. Medium body with prickly carbonation. Strong and long finish, ending with an highly bitter roasted and smoky nuts feel coating the tongue. Overall I don’t like this craft being highly bitter in a harsh bad way with unpleasant unbalanced flavors and bad freshness. Doesn’t really taste like an IPA, more like a mix of cream ale and red ale.

mathieuc (3030) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2015
Cask at Griendel, dryhopped with Glacier. Pours a clear copper with a medium high eggshell head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of slight earthy hops, husk or maybe roasted malt, pine. Taste is moderately bitter, not too sweet and offets clean cereals, light caramel and earthy angles. Body is light to medium, carbonation moderate. Overall an OK IPA, I might need to try the bottle-conditioned some day since I get the feeling that it is somewhat changed by being served from a cask and dryhopped.

Gluepot (352) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2015
An East Coast IPA that overdoes the malt. Big roasted malt, nuttiness and some astringent hops with a slightly metallic finish. Pretty heavy slogging.

Lubiere (12363) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2015
A clear reddish copper ipa with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with light grassy hops, light off fruity esters, strange. In mouth, a grainy caramel malt with grassy hops, light mineral notes, rather German on style, OK but not to style.

bunget (769) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
341ml bottle. Hazy copper body, small beige head with good retention. Floating sediments. Aroma of a classic British IPA: tons of caramel malt, herbs, flowers, leather, syrup. Taste pretty much the same: tons of caramel, moderate herbal bitterness, a touch of citrus zest. Slightly oily. I liked it.

After trying the Dunham Anglaise, I see that IPA’s can really vary in style, but this was even further out there. The aroma is more malty than hoppy. Moderate burnt dark bread and molasses. Light perfumey hops. Average mostly diminishing head over a dark clear amber body. Fair lacing. Moderately sweet, lightly bitter taste followed by a moderately bitter slightly sour, long lasting finish. Medium, oily palate with soft carbonation. Eh bien!

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2015
341ml bottle purchased at La Trappe a Fromage in Gatineau, Quebec. Clear amber in colour with a thin lasting off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is of light citrus, some syrup, moderate sweetness of white sugar. Flavour is lightly bitter with just a small amount of citrus hops coming through, very light sweetness and a bit thin. Bitter mouthfeel, medium/light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes mid length with a hoppy bitterness. I liked the Cascade much better then this, just not overly flavourful.

IPA de base qui ne propose rien de particulier en bouche mais a le mérite de commencer la soiree efficacement, mais sans histoire.

HippyHop (583) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 18, 2014
Pour is hazy amber with a bit of light tan head. Nose is all caramel and bread and fruit. Virtually nothing in the way of hops, though I suspect this bottle isn’t particularly fresh. Taste is caramel, roasted grain and nuts, with a bitter, slightly metallic finish. Definitely not my favourite offering from these guys.

Stoned99 (1012) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle from Épicerie des halles. Aroma: grapefruit, caramel, bread, earthy grain. App: Clear amber orange with thin head and some lacing. Taste: syrup, grapefruit, medium sweet, medium bitter. More earthy than fruity. Palate: medium body, thick feel, lively carbonation with bitter finish. Overall: Not bad but too sweet for an IPA even if it’s a British IPA (Classic). Would like to have more bitterness and maybe more fruitiness.
