New product from Boreale.

Poured into my favorite pint, Chanvre rouge..

It got a clear apparence, amber color, small white head of foam with calm effervescence.

It smells like sweet citrus..shy smell..

It taste pretty much the same, some sweet citrus taste, hoppy, light body.

mouthfeel is right for the style, a bit dense,,with a after taste of bitterness,, small carbonation.

Overall its good, nothing extreme. It is a pretty smooth ipa,

nice hookup with my homemade-poutine,.heheh

Sampled at Le Mondial. Listed as 50 IBUs.

Appearance: A rather clear gold body but lots of off-white head that looks real nice with retention and all.

Smell: Nice hops aroma. A bit vegetal mixed with a touch of honey and nuts.

Taste: Has that nice brassy citrus hops taste with some delicate fruit, mangoes and peaches.

Mouthfeel: Bitterness is very low and i found the body a bit light for an IPA.

Overall: An ok IPA that has some good points but doesn't quite reach the standard.

Bought it on special a pack of 6 for 8,99 $
Orange gold color. Nice fruity smell.
I tried the Alexander Keith IPA and wasn't very impressed about it.
Boreale IPA have a nice balance. I find it a bit strong 6,2 ABV I wish it was more about 5,5 or 5,8 ABV. But nothing to complain about.
I notice a very nice taste of the beer after 2 or 3 minutes after you drink it. I was surprise because most of the beer around 5 or 6 ABV, the taste goes away very soon but this one it stays and at the end it s a real smooth taste that u got even after 10 minutes that u drink it.
So would I recommend it ? For an IPA, for sure ! U can t go wrong with this one. Much, much better than the Alexander Keith IPA.

3.53/5  rDev -5.6%

12oz Bottle from Brouehaha QC for 2.50$

Appearance - Slightly hazy copper colour with a largesize fizzy off-white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation and there is some faint lacing. The head lasted for around 2-3 minutes.

Smell - Malts, caramel, grapefruit, hops

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste hops, malts, and caramel/toffee. There is also some grapefruit and apricot flavour. It ends with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Overall - Surprisingly decent. I had low expectations but this beer actually has some of the flavours found in an american IPA. I can see this working well as a transition beer for someone just getting into hops/ipa's. With the selection of decent ipa's now available to me locally I have no reason to buy this one again, but it's worth trying. It would have been hit a few years ago when this type of beer was sparse in my parts.

3.63/5  rDev -2.9%

A: Colour is orange/copper, low levels of cloudiness, pours a frothy white head that is consistent and laces the glace.

S: Citrus but not over the top, hints of caramel and nuts. Getting a bit of candy flavours

T: Sweet mild grapefruit, sweetness is well balanced and lingers with the bitterness. Hints of caramel and a bit of candy.

M: Well carbonated, a bit creamy at the end, a bit sweeter in the end.

O: This is a great beer. It's about time we see them come out with an IPA and I'm proud that this Canadian micro as properly designed one. The balance of the sweetness to bitterness is a bit off. I would like a higher bitterness in this beer.
