Tap at brewpub. Pours light orange lots of head and miles of thick lacing. These guys know how to make their beer look good. Nose is quiet. Notes are pretty heavy on the fruity side, lots of Peach and some light give-alive. Light citrus bitterness. Taste is light/medium Sweet and light bitter. Somewhat creamy body with medium carbonation.

Version #26 (Houblon Colombus et Cascade). Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur ambrée-dorée et légèrement voilée. Nez de houblon herbeux (herbes fraîches, traces de menthe et de thé), résineux et aux notes citriques, fruité (agrumes, notes de pêches et de fruits tropicaux), moyen de grains de malt sucrés avec des petites notes de pain. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture aux notes huileuses. Goût moyennement amer de houblon herbeux (herbes fraîches, traces de menthe) aux petites notes citriques et accompagné d’un goût fruité (agrumes, moyen-léger de fruits tropicaux) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de céréales avec des notes de pain puis en finale l’amertume de houblon se fait légèrement résineuse, plus herbeuse (incluant des notes de thé) et légèrement asséchante. Post-goût moyen-long et un peu sec, moyennement amer de houblon herbeux, légèrement résineux et aux notes citriques avec un goût fruité (agrumes, traces de fruits tropicaux). (23 janvier 2013)

Sorachi Ace batch at Soirée des Brasseurs 2011 in Shawinigan. Deep orange blonde topped by a whitish head. Nice aromas of bitter orange and pepper. Low to medium body, medium bitterness, a little thin for an IPA, but the finale is very refreshing. More an APA in my opinion with its low bitterness in the mouthfeel, but still a very satisfying ale.

On tap at brewpub. Inspiration 11 5.5% abv Citra.
Appearance : Slightly hazy with a small creamy head. Nice lacing.
Aroma : Great floral and citrusy hops. Nice tropical fruits. Fresh and fruity.
Taste : Light caramel with nice malt and floral hops. Nice fruity notes. Resinous and bitter. A bit sticky on finish.
Overall : Intensely hoppy but rather drinkable. Nice tropical fruits coming from the cirta. Not too much caramel. Very well made.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2013 Verre de 10 oz, au Siboire, version Citra. Très beau nez de houblon rappelant les fruits tropicaux et les fleurs. Robe ambrée et légèrement trouble, petite dentelle et effervescence assez faible. Assez mince en bouche, de douces céréales caramélisées supportent le houblon fruité, moyennement aromatique. Texture légèrement aqueuse. Finale assez sèche, présentant une amertume résineuse d’intensité moyenne. Une bière intéressante et facile à boire.

MartinT (9499) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2011
My Bottom Line:
Pears and citrus fruit aplenty garnish this IPA’s plump cereals, taking you to a potent resinous bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the amber-y mist.
-This was very drinkable, but the flavor profile didn’t feel as polished as most Siboire brews.
-The resinous bitterness felt a little too coarse for my liking. The same aroma and flavor profile could have lead to a friendlier finish for more drinkability.
-The aromatic potential of this hop variety is truly wonderful.

On tap at the brewpub, as Inspiration 11 (100% Citra).

JulienHuxley (5659) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Copper colored pour with thin white head heavy lacing. Aroma is piney with pink grapefruit, a bit of earth too. Taste is very bitter, lots of piney hops, very hop forward, deliciously unbalanced. Palate is very dry, some alcohol presence. Good IPA.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Sheets of lace, a white head on an orange tintedbody with lots of lace left. Hoppy aromas from Williametic. Carbonation right there. Decent IPA but would like a more agreeable mouthfeel. ome orange taste.
