La Chouape has done a great job with this IPA. It embodies all the classic elements that make American IPAs so damned good. It's very light amber in colour, with a head that dissipates very quickly and leaves virtually no lacing. However, the smell is amazing, with floral notes taking front row in this hopped up beer, with a little citrus in there as well - possibly grapefruit. The taste brings it up another notch with the above mentioned flavours showing through but balanced beautifully by a bready malt - but not overly so. This is definitely a hoppy beer. Very dry, feels great going down. I'll buy it again - if they drop the price a little.

Always glad to see another American IPA for Quebec.

A- Some sort of cloudy brown with some yellow. Vdery light beige head sits well and leaves some nice lacing.

S- Something similar to all the La Chouape beers. Sweet. Alcohol is a bit hot. A little musty.

T- Like the smell. Tastes good, sweet with just enough bitterness. Only thing is, it tastes a bit dirty. Veggie in the hops comes out more and more as it warms. Little bit of bubblegum came out near the end.

M- Low carbonation. Full bodied. Moderately dry.

O- Well, as I thought. A la Chouape IPA. It's good, offers some nice, well balanced AIPA flavours but there's also some bad;like the veggie, and musty.
Room for improvement.

Bottle: Poured a light amber/orangey color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light citrus hops notes with some bitterness and dry caramel malt also noticeable. Taste is a nice mix between some dry caramel malt with light floral and bitter hoppy notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Good and easily drinkable but a bit low on the hops side of things.

3.43/5  rDev +10.6%

Appearance: It has a nice deep hazy orangy/amber color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down slowly and leaves some nice spotty lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of faint floral hops, some pine, some citrus and bready malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some pine resins upfront followed by floral hops, sweet caramel and bready malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a decent overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with average flavors and aromas.
