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.

This is surprisingly excellent. 600mL bottle from LCBO. Pours a nice amber with a long-lasting head. Aroma is fruit and lots of hops. Quite carbonated on the tongue, some bitterness, but also some fruit continues. Long, bitter, finish. Very pleasant overall -really excellent - will purchase again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bouteille de 600ml batch 3014 embouteillée le 02-22-2013, merci Slovak pour une bière aussi fraiche. Elle est cuivrée avec une mousse beige pâle. Au nez il y a du caramel et des houblons. La bouche est super amère, les houblons sont puissant et un léger goût de caramel ajoute une touche sucrée. Un produit qui ne fera pas l’unanimité.

Une robe généreusement cuivrée et sa tête mousseuse largement traîneuse. Un nez en équilibre entre les malts et les houblons. D’un côté, des céréales grillées qui flirtent avec les biscuits et les malts pâles. De l’autre, des houblons terreux, épicés et feuillus traversées par de fines particules fruitées. Sur les papilles, des malts roux contrôlés par une démonstration houblonnée : je pense reconnaître des houblons à l’anglaise. En bouche, le liquide montre un corps plutôt normal avec une bonne infiltration des bulles et une texture presque huileuse. En finale, des notes franches et amères, florales et poivrées qui cherchent à perdurer. (Embouteillée le 22 février 2013)

Considering IPA is not my favourite kind of beer, this beer really hit the spot. It has orange colour with medium head that sticks around. It has a minimum taste of pine that most IPA have, and it has a really nice suttle after taste.

Bottle from the LCBO, this beer pours a clear copper with a decent fluffy head, the aroma is of bready malts, and citrus. Upon tasting, I am first confronted by notes of bread, crackers, then the citrus, and pine hops kick in. Leaving a resin taste and a crisp clean finish, this is a very good IPA. A long bitter aftertaste lingers in the mouth, making you reach for more! Good job Beau’s!

Big fast pour so lots of head bubbles in bottle. Dark amber orange. Smell’s of citrus/lemon and earthy bitterness. Taste start’s of water and citrus like and then quickly I am hit with a earthy bitterness that agressivly last and warms me up. I don’t like this beer.

Nice light copper hue, very like a classic english PA. Foamy white head, not very big but lingers. Clarity perfect. Aroma is a very fine balance of bready malt and citrusy hop aroma, this really feels like a transatlantic beer. The flavour follows the script, the malty and slightly fruity ale flavours of the old country leading the way, until the new world takes centre stage with robust citrusy resiny hops bringing on a quick bitter and bone dry finish. The resiny flavours come back for an encore shortly thereafter, leaving me thirsty for more. Organic doesn’t hurt either.

Bomber. Nice amber with a generous white head that fades to a nice layer. Some floral hops, light caramel malt. Mild sweetness at first, becomes somewhat bitter and then slightly astringent at the end, moderate carbonation, quite dry on the finish, moderate body. Decent.
