Les Trois Mousquetaires Launches New Double IPA Bavaroise

An Article by Noah Forrest Québec has historically been a bit behind the times when it comes to hop forward beers. I first started getting into craft beer about six years ago, and at the time there wasn’t much that fell into the American IPA spectrum within Québec. A few examples existed, but nothing in […]

Dieu du Ciel’s Herbe a Detourne – A Comparison; How Do Citra Hops Taste After a Year?

So I’m getting more and more excited these days about how beer changes and develops over time in the bottle.  Because I’m relatively new to the world of being a beer geek, it’s only now that I can really start doing proper age comparisons. One, because I have a cellar, and two because I’ve learned […]
