4.19/5 rDev -1.9%
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.
Bottle Date: 2013/08/23; Poured: 2013/09/25
Many thanks to Seblp for the bottle!!!
A: A hazy straw color pouring to 2-3 fingers of bubbly head falling quickly to a sudsy collar leaving a bit of lacing.
S: A nice fat hop nose, spicy and peppery with a touch of citrus (oranges and tangerines). I think the hops have fallen off a bit in the bottle with age, but that happens to all beers.
T: Just as the nose suggests, the flavor is a big wack of hops, mostly spicy and peppery, but with some nice pine resin and sweet citrus (oranges and tangerines). The hops are backed nicely by a sweet, but clean, malt profile.
M: Medium high body and medium carbonation; very round and velvety.
O: There is a great hop flavor, but it’s a little light in the nose. Still very smooth and round with great balance. I will look out for this one next year!

4.26/5 rDev -0.2%
A new brewery only release by L3M. Dry-hopped 4 times, with 8 different hops (Columbus, chinnok, centennial, summit, mandarina bavaria, amarillo, simcoe and mosaic). 130 IBUs. Mostly basic malts. OG 18P, FG 2,8P
Nice golden/orange color, quite opaque
The nose is quite seductive, totally hop forward and really exotic/fruity.
Mouthfeel is quite nice, without having the lush texture of HT. It's bitter, quite bitter, but at the same time really drinkable, and alcool is quite subtle.
Overall, probably the best bottled IPA ever brewed in QC imo.... I prefer it to yakima

A: Golden yellow with a bit of white head, very thin ring of retention shows a little leg.
S: Great hop nose: passion fruit, papaya, mango, candied pineapple, a bit dank with hints of underlying toffee.
T: Lots of tropical fruit up front, with a resiny bitterness in the finish. There's some underlying toffee & hints of biscuit, but this is really about the hops: Mango, pine, papaya, marmalade and hints of steelie grass, spearmint, tangerine & nectarine.
M: Moderate body is resiny with a slight hop acidity and a crisp finish.
O: Great stuff. If you took a Heady Topper, increased the bitterness and ran it through a course filter, this might be what you get. (I just had it back-to-back with Heady Topper).
Huge thanks to Caudalie!
