COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

ads135 (2921) - 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 (3926) - 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.

dfearnley (944) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 23, 2013
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.

Freaky_tiki (530) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2013
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.

BreWedge (313) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
600 ml bottle. Pours a mildly hazy amber with a significant but short-lived off-white head. Aromas are yeasty funk, bubblegum, and caramel. Taste is a nice bready backbone with a citrus punch. Medium body and carbonation with a long astringent finish. Pretty nice but a very different IPA. Malts are more present than what I’m used to.

CraftBeerNick (866) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2013
Keg at Kick Off, Waterloo, Ontario, 28th April 2013. Not bad, a little too fizzy in the palate, drinks well though, the flavour is nice, not overly assertive, drinkable, but not my sort of IPA
