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.

dandeman (619) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2012
Slightly hoppy nose with floral accents. Typical IPA aroma but very light and subtle. Appearance: Clear copper / brown with creamy long lasting head; sticking and lacing to glass marvelously. Taste: Attack is very well balanced between malt and hops. Caramel and toffee are the main flavors with floral and grassy notes. Finish is very long lasting and all bitterness. A very well balanced traditional IPA. Typical of the style.

Growler form the brewery, copper color, with a small beige head, with a floral fruity, light peachy, lemon peel hoppy nose with some leafy, grassy accents, and a mild grainy toasted, biscuity, pale malt note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a nice toasted, caramel, biscuity malt, flowery leafy, grassy, lime, lemon citrus hop character, with a toffee, earthy vegetable bittering backbone, leading towards a malty, lingering leafy, grassy, citrus hop bitterness finish.

AlainG (1430) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2012
Cette bière est ambrée et elle présente une mousse typique, sans pour autant signer d’une dentelle. Elle sent les agrumes et un mélange condensé de conifères variés. Les sens olfactifs s’amourachent de l’odeur de bois ou encore de forêt. Un picotement est ressenti dans les joues et est suivi de flaveurs boisées et amères qui s’éternisent, laissant une douce amertume huileuse en arrière-goût. Elle meuble bien l’espace qui lui est attribuée. (291-030812)

bigtaster (778) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Clear brown gold with red hues, large light head with decent lacing. Nose with honey malt with some darker brown sugar notes and hint of pine. The hops come through in the flavor, coming in mid way through the drink and lingering for a while on the finish. The initial burst of favor is malt, some red ale malt flavors. Interesting beer, some really good flavors, but just not coming together for me.

Strangebrewer (954) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2012
bottle. Poured clear orange-amber with a nice lacing white head. Light citrusy slightly sour hoppy aroma. Smooth carbonation medium mouthfeel that turns into a tart throat puckering dryness that makes you reach for another gulp to quench the previous one. Buttery caramel malt flavour that makes way for a lingering bitter floral hop finish.

Au mondial, en fût, Une excellent IPA. L’amertume est tranchante et le sucre enveloppe bien la bouche. J’ai beacoup aimé.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle, 60 cl. Clear amber with a small bubbly beige head. Rather malty nose for an IPA, aromatic hops are very subuded, but the notes of caramel and biscuits are quite inviting. Sweet malty flavor with a medium slightly peachy bitter finish. Very wellbalanced, could do with a bit more aromatic hops, though. Massive mouthfeel for the ABV.

DuffMan (7622) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2012
Bottle, shared with Robbie. Light copper amber, average white head. Aroma is very malty, lots of toast and caramel, with earthy hops playing a distant afterthought. Nice toasty malts on the palate too, but again there is a virtual absence of aromatics. There is however, plenty of pithy bitterness in the finish. Compared to the Mad Tom IPA I had yesterday, and the Boneshaker I had earlier, this just doesn’t add up. A decent brew, but a pretty weak IPA.
