Arch (11) - Gatineau, Quebec, - AUG 10, 2010
Aroma : Lots of pine and citrus from the Cascade hops. Maybe a little caramel thrown in. Somehow, it smells a little metallic but not to the point of being unpleasant. Appearance : Beer is clear, orange amber. About an inch of brownish foam that slowly dissipates and leaves little lacing. Taste : A little fruity. Well balanced. The piney and citrusy hops shine throught but it’s still not too bitter. I can still taste the metallic taste but it disappears as the beer warms. Mouthfeel : Carbonation is good and the beer is thick enough. Overall : A great effort from Simple Malt. Not the best IPA around but a decent and fairly refreshing one that I quite enjoy drinking.

Appearance: Pours an orange, amber body with a thick head. Looks just a tad tan. Honestly looks like a lot of IPAs but still looks good. Smell: Sticky & resin-like hops though a little on the down low. Floral & some citrus action. Taste: Big citrus fruit that paves the way for a very nice hop presence that doesn’t overdo it. Has a certain dryness to it. A bit of malt or even caramel if that’s possible? As it warms, shows a little sweetness to it. Astringent yet yummy all at the same time. Develops a sugary, candy-like aspect in the finish as it nears room temp. Mouthfeel: Quite full-bodied with a nice edge. Smooth and bitter all at the same time. Incredible balance and nearly perfect in the palate IMO.

341ml bottle. Clear copper body, medium beige head with decent retention, some lacing. Aroma is a bit dusty: caramel, orange candies, bread, dried apricot. Taste of caramel, grapefruit zest, candies, a hint of resins. Ok.

500ml bottle. Clear amber with a foamy white head. Flavors are toasted cereals, grapefruit, pine resin and earth with grassy and floral notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation, slick texture.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2016 Nouvelle mouture de cette bière en format 500ml où le brasseur à soi-disant coupé sur le malt caramélisé pour y ajouter plus de saveurs de houblons. À 4$ la bouteille, vérifier cette affirmation valait la peine. Robe ambrée foncée claire surmonté d’un col de mousse blanc et collant. Arômes de pamplemousse, citron, zeste d’orange, malt légèrement caramélisé et un côté vieux gazon sec. Traces de sucres résiduels. En bouche, le Cascade s’offre effectivement à nous. C’est très amer, pamplemousse et zeste d’orange, résine et autres agrumes qui manquent de pep. Le malt goûte moins que le laissait présager le nez. C’est à se demander si délaisser le malt pour permettre au houblon de se démarquer est réellement une bonne chose. Le Cascade est bien mais un peu "old school" donc personnellement, boire une bière qui me ramène aux ipa d’il y a 10 ans est discutable. Finale herbacée et amère avec une arrière-goût de feuilles mortes. Texture huileuse et corps mince-moyen. Une ipa accessible et facile à boire mais qui ne passera pas l’histoire.

Un peu d’agrumes, mais surtout beaucoup trop de caramel. L’arrière-goût n’est pas très agréable

Arriere gout pas des plus agréables; biere sympathique qui ne se distingue toutefois pas particulièrement...

341 ml bottle. I’ve had the DH version before thet ’’regular’’ one. Clear copper color. nice head. Smell is less hoppy than the DH. pine notes and bready. iron odor too. taste is hops, bread, crisper than expected. not sticky. overall good american IPA but the DH version is way better in my books

341ml bottle purchased at La Trappe a Fromage in Gatineau, Quebec. Golden amber in colour with a thin quickly dissipating white head, light lacing. Aroma is of pine, citrus, lightly sweet. Flavour is sticky, sweet, light pine, orange citrus, moderate bitterness. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, sticky with a hoppy bitterness. I found this to be refreshing but not overly interesting.

Metalchopz (3683) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Pours a very slight hazy amber colour with a creamy-frothy warm cap that stays long and gives out some foamy lace. Aromas of oranges with woody hints of the hops and a light caramel malt base. Mildly creamy mouthfeel with a light dry finish. The hop is more present in the taste covering the whole way with the fruity notes. The very light caramel appears way later in the aftertaste. Not bad, but not an IPA I would have again.

HippyHop (720) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
Pour is clear light copper with a finger of white cap with great retention but minimal lacing. I get the impression this isn’t the freshest bottle, as I don’t get the intense Cascade aromas described below. Surprisingly I get a lot of light grain and bread, some caramel, and a bit of citrusy hops. Taste follows, with a subtly bitter finish. To steal from another ratings: this seems more like an EPA, but the malt bill is quite nice. Drinkable but not very memorable.
