Simple Malt Classic IPA – Brewers Unlimited – Saint-Eustache, Quebec



And so my international experience continues. This time, we’re sampling from the Brewers Unlimited, a very small group of Brewers from Saint-Eustache, Quebec. There is very little known about this group, but they came highly recommended on the Western side of the Island of Montreal. I apologize for the lack of background, but I could not find one person who knew anything about them. I guess we’re flying blind here. Let’s take a look at the brew, and see what we’ve gotten ourselves into.

THE BEER:

INDIA PALE ALE

Stout and malt wish. Its rich fruity and floral bouquet is the product of generous portions of five hops known for their finesse.

THE STATS:

ABV: 6.4%

THE BREWERY:

NO INFORMATION AVAILABLE

THE REVIEW:

I really wish that I had a little more to go on then just a one line description on the main website. This is where Breweries could take a lesson in marketing. That said…on to the review. The pour was fine, producing a nice, thick head. The coloring is copper-like, hinting at some bitterness. As for the flavor, it was hoppy, but not as hoppy as you might expect from a “classic IPA”. In fact, it may have been a little understated. Yep, that would be my general impression of the brew…understated, and underwhelming…. and unimpressive.

THE RATING:

5.5/10 – unimpressive
