Bottle from Peluso in Montreal. From notes.

A - Poured bright with an orangey golden colour and mild carbonation. For what they claim is an unfiletered beer, this is lookin' pretty damn filtered. Two finger fluffy white head, minimal spotty lace and a film of retention.

S - Honey and grapefruit. Quite mild. Alcohol came out more as it warmed. Not overly impressive.

T - Much nicer than the aroma with a good hop burst in the flavour profile and lot's of honey, sweet syrupy fruits, sweet fruits, grapefruit, and pineapple. Much sweeter as it warmed with some alcohol present.

M - Decent bitterness for the style, good carbonation, fuller end of medium body.

O/D - Definitely not a great DIPA, but not a terrible one. Not exactly easy drinking though. Nothing stood out as overly positive and the alcohol was too noticeable for the ABV without a great hop character and too much sweetness. Wouldn't seek it out.

Pours amber with a large white head.
Nose shows honey, bready malt and some resinous hops. Very sweet-smelling.
Flavours include heavy booze, loads of sweet syrupy malt and a piny, metallic bitterness in the finish.

Served in a pint glass, at about 8 degrees Celsius.

Appearance – Clear, golden, no haziness, solid inch of head retention after a few minutes.

Smell – From two feet away, I can already smell the intense IPA-style hops aromas! Upon closer inspection, I also get some thick, heavy sugars, almost like molasses or maple syrup; but mostly piny, resinous, slightly citrusy hops.

Taste – A lot of the same as the smell, minus the heavy sugars; maybe not quite as hoppy as the smell.

Mouthfeel – fair carbonation; alcohol content (8%) showing through a bit much as dryness on my tongue; not very bitter, considering the strong hoppy smell and the DIPA label.

Overall – pretty good double IPA, although I do prefer the hops profile of the regular St-Ambroise IPA… might try my next bottle a bit colder.

St.Ambroise 'Double IPA' @ 8.0% , served from 6pack of 341 ml bottles purchased for $14.50

A-pour is a light gold from the bottle to a clear gold in the glass with a big frothy off-white head leaving a streaky lace along the pint

S-smelley double IPA , lot's of hops

T-dissapointing at first because of the dry bitterness that lingers on the palate thru out

MF-not the best carbonation , feels full bodied , dryness lingers on the palate

Ov-dissapointing Dbl IPA
