Les amateurs de houblons en quête d’amertume seront servis par la Ruine Papilles. Cette bière est de couleur ambrée et regorge de houblons américains. Empruntant le style India Pale Ale (IPA) des anglais, les nord-américains ont adaptés le style avec les variétés de houblons qui poussent sur leurs terres. Les IPAs américaines sont plus fortes en alcool, plus amères et plus aromatiques que leurs homologues anglaises. La Ruine Papilles offre des saveurs citronnées et de pamplemousse tout en se mariant bien aux malts caramélisés. Bien amère, ce style de bière n’est pas approprié pour une première expérience chez les microbrasseurs. Récalcitrante aux premiers abords, ceux qui aiment essayer de nouvelles saveurs se feront sans doute prendre au piège puisqu’il est de plus en plus connu et accepté de dire que le houblon est addictif.

Canned. Hazy orange colour, mid sized head. Chalky grapefruit aroma. Dryish with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Fruity with some cookies and grapefruit peels. Really bitter finish.

Oakes (18199) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2012
Draught, Bateau de Nuit. Reddish-amber with a thin, bubbly head. Lots of chewiness on the nose. Very rich with too much crystal malt and the hops seem a bit old.

Lubiere (14110) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2009
A lightly hazed dark copper amber IPA with a thin creamy off white head. In aroma, a very pungeant and smooth IPA, citrussy hops, nice and floral. In mouth, a crisp malt with good c-hops, grapefruits, pungeant and smooth. Medium bodied. On tap at Brouhaha Nov. 23 2009.

Sammy (12491) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2014
Fresh can from Peluso. Mild hop aroma. Too bitter as these IPAs tend to go, and not cheaply at that. Lasting head on golden, some lace lines.

Bottle, not sure of the age, but I’m guessing not too fresh. Nice orange body, thick off white head. Very malty profile, which I generally enjoy, but the hops just aren’t here at all-- a bit of plastic phenols, but tats it really. Bitter finish, but not assertively so. Disappointing.

My Bottom Line:
Crunchy cereals succeed in nearly balancing out this India Pale Ale’s assertive leafy, citrusy and resinous hoppiness, creating a flavorful and quenching example of the style.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the clear dark golden.
-The aroma is quite pleasant (floral, citrusy), but could be more expressive to announce the hoppiness to come (and to be as alluring as top-tier IPAs of this continent).
-The hop bitterness is gripping, but it is not overwhelming. Apparently the first batch was too intense so they toned it down somewhat. The pint I had was not aggressive at all, so great move on their part, imho.
-The Frontenac malt character is almost drowned out by the loud hops, but its fruity idiosyncracies still appear here and there. Personally, I would have preferred a softer malt to let the hops express themselves.

On tap at Brouhaha.

Tap at Saint Bock. Amber pour with a tight white head. The aroma is awesome. Lots of juicy fruit and tropical mango character. A little bit of fairly bright hoppiness. Grapefruit and orange in addition to some very heavy hoppiness. Bitter and resinous on the finish with a lot of bright fruity character up front. A pretty damn nice IPA.

czar (9250) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 21, 2011
pours a clear copper, orange tint, with a decent white head. cereals, some caramel malts. grapefruit aroma and taste - medium hopping, medium to long finish. light body, strong carbonation.

solidfunk (9200) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Certainly a lot better than the so called pale ale I just had from these guys. An English streaky forward ipa. Pours orangish with some head and lacing great malt profile here with crisp barley notes. Hops are bitter with light more of citrus but not super fresh or poignant. Finishes bitter and lightly salty. Bottle.

TaktikMTL (7874) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2010
En fût. Verre de dégustation chez Le Saint-Bock (Montréal, QC). Arôme: Odeur d’agrumes avec une pointe sucrée. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée orangée voilée avec une moyenne densité de bulle. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de pamplemousse et de zestes d’oranges avec une pointe de caramel. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’amertume d’houblons en arrière goût. (Rating #3005)
