UPDATED: AUG 10, 2017 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. some orange taste.
had again 7 years later and similar. Quevillon (3217) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2012 Sample at "La Soirée des Brasseur" beer fest in Shawinigan on August 12, 2012. 100% Zythos hops (#23). Creamy blonde, medium head. Creamy aroma of raw grain, well hopped. Taste of green hops a little sweet and a little spicy, very good bitterness. A very solid and well-hopped IPA, that’s good! GonZoBeeR (3060) - ste-catherine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2010

Hazy amber ale covered by a tight and proud off-white foam. Good looks. Biscuity, toasty (and quite cerealic with a certain depth in that department) malt base supports the hop show going on above it all. While not the most perfumey IPA, this boasts a confident sprucey carnival, adorned with orangey notions aplenty. In mouth, their importance is magnified. The hops grow by the sip, entangling the back of the tongue with a rich bitterness, resinous, citrusy, insisting at length. Fresh, tasty and balanced by a full, engagingly carbonated palate. Exemplary IPA, possibly better than any bottled Québec IPA. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2010
In short: A full body nourishing IPA with intense resinous coniferous hopping. Great brew.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy dark golden topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is intense with a lot of coniferous tree, you can smell that beer from a few feet away. Body is full with a lot of toasted cunchy/crisp caramelized cereals. A truckload of assertive confinerous hops with a strong resinous character. A light orange peel sensation. Strong bitterness. Light dryness. This is not a refreshing hop juice beer, this is a nourishing tasty IPA. Wow! This was a kick-ass IPA. Too bad this brewpub is 2 hour drive from my place. Because now I feel like a poor has-been rock star desperately trying to make a comeback, I’m depressed because I don’t have any Inspiration anymore.
