La Foublonne est une bière d’inspiration américaine aux reflets orangés quasi rougeoyants. Bien houblonnée, elle nous dévoile de riches arômes floraux et maltés, suivis d’une finale très poignante d’agrumes. Les amateurs de bières houblonnées seront comblés.

Arômes pamplemousse, robe cuivrée trouble, mousse blanche abondante, compacte, persistante et collante. Très bien balancé: amertume de moyenne à forte, herbal, notes d’agrumes (orange).

500ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha. Pours a relatively small frothy eggshell coloured head, very bubbly. Has a cloudy coppery apperance, with sediments clearly visible floating around. Aromas are mild citrus hops with a backing of sweet roasted malts, and some oranges. Flavours are citrus hops, mildly spiced, a bit of an earhty quality to it. Light nutty malt flavours as well, balances pretty good with hops. Some sweet notes such as caramel and toffee rear their heads in the finish. Very creamy full bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation. Slightly bitter on the palate. Really good but a bit lacking with the hoppy bitterness, which makes it an above average IPA.

Hazy amber and light copper coloured body with a thinnish tan head Aroma of light hops, earth, caramel and a bit of alcohol noticeable as well. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and earthy hoppy flavour with a nicely balanced malt showing right behind. Aftertaste is a bit on the English/Earthier side, but some hop notes show through, along with a bit of PNW hops and a touch of grain and alcohol. Overall, a decent beer that shows some nice hoppy notes, but not in the same caliber as the beers from America, of course. I sampled this stubby 500 mL ’montreal-styled’ bottle, purchased from Marche des Saveurs du Quebec in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on 18-September-2016 for CA$5,99 sampled in my hotel room later in the day on 18-September-2016 in Montreal.

Bottle at home. Pours Amber with a white head. Light butterscotch aroma with vanilla and milk. Medium body, medium carbonation. Butterscotch, lemon, orange, light pine, caramel. A bit messy, too much caramel/butterscotch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bouteille de 500ml (embouteillée le 10 avril 2014), achetée chez Peluso au coût de $4.99. Dégustée le 5 octobre 2014. Bière ambrée voilée. Très peu effervescente, bulles fines. Mousse assez, col blanc moyen, persistant. Odeur fruitée/florale style clémentines et de fruits confits. Douce, assez sucrée, très amère. Saveur houblonnée et de fruits à noyaux (pêches, mangues, etc.).

Nez faible, quelques notes d’agrumes. En bouche, une amertume sèche avec peu de saveur à l’horizon. Peu d’intérêt.

500ml bottle. Hazy orange-amber in colour with a thin but lasting off-white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of orange citrus, floral and rather earthy. The flavour is very malty for an IPA, good orange citrus bite, earthy. Oily bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long and malty. A very malty IPA, needs more hops for better balance.

Robe jaune foncée, bien voile, généreux col de mousse persistant. Arômes de pamplemousse bien amer, gros poivre, légère présence du malt. Goût de pamplemousse, gazon, très poivré. Finale maltée et un peu caramelisé. Texture très sèche. Se boit bien mais une autre ipa avec du gros houblon sans personnalité.

I’m sort of surprised by the low-ish scores on it. Also sort of surprised by the comments that it’s a "typical IPA". It’s nothing revolutionary, but I find this is a refreshing break from my usual citrus/tropical fruit-bomb West Coast IPAs. Pour is a light caramel colour with a two-finger ecru (that’s right) cap. Retention and lacing are both solid. Nose is faint, but still surprisingly punchy for a beer that was bottled February 25th. Fresh pine and flowers, slightly soapy, subtle lemon/orange citrus, caramel, almost rye-like peppery spice. Taste is medium-sweet/medium-bitter, chewy carame malt, tingly pepper, pine, orange, light soap (am I the only one who enjoys a bit of soap in my beer?). As others have noted there’s something missing here. To me the malt has a bit of a....watery patch? But it’s tasty, and close to being delicious. Body is medium, creamy/oily, carbonation is fizzy, finish is long and (a touch too) bitter, with lingering pine/citrus peel (or pith? The **** do I know?). At any rate, I think this stuff is a bit of a hidden gem.

Ipa d'entre deux: solide amertume, mais pas trop forte. Pas exceptionnelle mais se bois bien
