COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Au commencement, tout nous semble paisible : se présente à nous une rousse au col blanc tenace, à l’apparence plutôt commune. Mais déjà, à l’approche du nez nous vient le pressentiment que la chute sera violente. En bouche, on se laisse d’abord berner par un léger sucre caramélisé rapidement envahi par une contre-attaque vive et rapide de houblon. Une amertume verte et intense nous envahit de toute part tandis que le petit goût de sucre caramélisé soutient un équilibre avec une délicieuse finale prenant l’allure de noisettes.

Wow, cette IPA du Trou du Diable est vraiment excellente, parfaitement équilibrée entre le coté sucré des fruits et l'amertume du houblon qui finalisse chaque gorgées, vraiment impeccable ! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Exceptional beer. Aromas of caramel, grass, and spices. Taste starts sweet, with a long bitter finish. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

Golden, hazy, big lasting head. Powerful hop smell. Tastes of citrus, pine. Balanced. Full body. Feels lighter in alcool than 6.5%. IPA for sure. Highly enjoyed.

Belle rousseur cuivrée et col blanc qui colle assez. Bel équilibre, corps assez doux et qui soutient les houblons, belle palette aromatique, parfums floraux et épicés assez originaux.L’amertume est très modérée finalement, la rondeur/douceur prédomine. Chère en France mais vaut le coup d’être essayer.C’est un bon breuvage.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2011 On tap at Mascouche’s sympathetic Oktoberfest. In a blind test next to a Corne du Diable, I clearly could mix them up and since I rated it pretty high, I guess I must be coherent... Citrusy-grapefruit power-hop, with a good sweet and peppery maltiness. Good stuff. 8-3-8-3-15 Re-rated because I got flabbergasted: I really, really loved the ones I recently had in bottle. It really seems this beer has benefit from some improvement. Intense West-coast style hoppiness, very fruity, piny and resinous, both aggressive and harmonious, made this IPA one of my two Québec’s favorites ever. Cool label!

fiulijn (20604) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Deep blond color with compact head. Very strong aroma, hoppy, fruity (tropical fruits and muscatel grape). Lean body, the mouthfeel is rather dry; the malt profile is quite crispy, some toffee and water crackers; expectedly strong bitterness with nice citrusy edge; light residual sweetness in the final. Overall, just the perfect balance for its kind, and highly drinkable, and fresh.
You don’t need to search another IPA.
