Inspired by the Beaver River (rivière Castor), which connects Ottawa to many communities to the East, this IPA is designed to appeal to Hop Heads. Taking the malt and yeast profile of a traditional British style India Pale Ale and adding an American-style citrusy punch, our Beaver River is both assertive and drinkable. Beaver River is brewed with local spring water and the ingredients are 100% certified organic.

Pours a light rust colour, with a thin white head. On the nose, from the bottle there is wet cereal, and malts. From the glass however it has distinct piney aroma, one expects from American West Coast IPAs. On the palate, more of the hoppy pine. Not as strong as some of the IPAs I have drunk, but a nice entry in Beau’s typically mild offerings.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2014 600ml bottle. Hazy copper with a foamy off-white head. Bready and citrusy aroma with herbal, woody and spicy notes. Taste is earth, bread, caramel and pine. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Bitter and astringent finish.

600 ml bottle to pint (shared with the Mrs.; thanks mikem409). Looks solid; a transparent amberish orange with AMPLE foamy off-white head. Smells solid too; bitter hops and caramel malt. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid English IPA.

Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear amber with a pillowy beige head that leaves a slight lace. Aroma is more caramel than hoppy. Taste is light and sweet with little evidence of hop bitterness. Creamy body with lively carbonation.

ads135 (3216) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JUN 5, 2013
A middling IPA. The hops are stale and grassy with a dirty mouthfeel and an overly sweet flavor of caramel at the beginning. Picked up in Toronto in 2013.

Ferris (6564) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle - Grassy and citrus hops. Clear copper with a foamy white head. Grassy hope, a nice balanced malt and bitter finish. A bit of spice and the malts really shine in the middle. A nice IPA.

Bottle to glass Aroma of cinnamon, grapefruit and hops; a tad skunky. Nice amber colour with a nice head but not great lacing. Taste is grapefruity and sweet with a long late bitterness.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2014 Russet pour with a picket white fence frothy cap that holds its ground. Doesn’t have the twang you’d expect from an ipa. Earthy & wise. Re-rate on 2014 edition with two week old bottle tells a better story than my first rating. I don’t know if has been rebooted or not but this is a stronger brew than what I remember. Will pick some more up on pay day.
