COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the Beaver River (rivičre 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.

Quevillon (2452) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2011
Tasting at the 18th Mondial de la bičre, June 9, 2011. Not very clear honey amber, small head. Peach and caramel hops aroma, sweet enough. Sweet taste of hops, notes of creamy peach and apple, nevertheless very bitter. Not bad but a little sweet!

Bottled sample from smokeless joes. Not a citrusy as I would have liked. Copper in colour. Notes of grass. Kind of metallic tasting

Bendrixian (1068) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2011
600ml bottle. pours frothy, almost orange tinge and slightly amber and clean filtered. shows some lace. Aromas are banana, dried fruit and something herbal like sage or rosemary....i can’t quite place it. some citrus hoppy notes as well and a malted backbone. palate is lively, kinda carbonated roasted bitterness and then finishes leafy hoppy. a decent brew but not a great one.

Atheist_Peace (928) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2011
600ml bottle. Amber with orange highlights. Perfectly clear. Off white head. Banana dominates the nose with a really sweet note and some herbal character. Some spice hiding in there as well. Quite fruit driven on the palate with a good spicy note. Nice bitter finish with some lingering resin.

Solid and special. This beer was a pleasant surprise, and is indeed a very american-british mix in terms of flavours. I’d have this again.

MXD (303) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 8, 2011
Pour amber. A bit of a bad pour, so I got a really filthy head. Drinking it in a flute didn’t help, either. Otherwise, the head is a bit fluffy. Beau’s heads are usually not that great, and this one is no exception. This said, part of it is my fault. (3). Aroma is part citrus, part floral hops, and great malt presence (hybrid of caramel and grain aroma) -- terrific balance! (8) Taste : This one feels like a true english-style IPA. Aroma hints at a US style, but the taste is pure british, with a solid grain/malt backbone. The kind that kinda makes me mad it’s only a seasonal (7). Palate : Bitter finish and oily finish. One of the least boozy 6% you gotta find. (4). All in all : Terrific, easy-drinking (as in -- it’s not overly harsh) iPA with a heavy english feel (it’s not an EPA by any means). 600 ml is the ideal size as well. (14+).
