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.

75cl Ceramic bottle picked up at Beau’s store in Vankleek hill labeled 4 days prior. Delicious appearance and aroma. Darker than their lager, with a deeper caramel orange hue and a very apparent strong malt aroma. Smaller, thicker off-white head that trails nicely. Citrus notes and strong hop aftertaste bite, with a bread-like residual on in your mouth and slightly bitter tang. Note quite my thing, but enjoyable.

600ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Orange amber in colour with a thin lasting off-white head, good lacing. The aroma is of light citrus, floral, grassy, some caramel. The flavour is earthy, lightly bitter, toasty, caramel, some oranges. Finishes moderately bitter, long, malty.

flip_soeperman (681) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2015
Nicely bitter beer, with resinous aroma, little herbal, slightly soapy, but very good. Also quite malty, with some biscuits... Just a very good IPA with a twist. Twist being still bitter, but good malty backbone.

samzim (286) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
Scent of citrus, pine, and malt. Hazy copper colour. Mild bitterness on the front with notes of biscuit and grapefruit. Medium body with mild carbonation. A solid IPA, but nothing outstanding.

lesifflebiere (1383) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
Robe orangée assez foncée, un peu de mousse en surface mais très mince ; en nez, ananas et autres fruits tropicaux. Saveurs en bouche qui varient entre les agrumes (citron, un peu d’orange même) et les susmentionnés fruits ensoleillés (ananas, une touche de papaye) ; le tout repose sur un lit de malts légèrement caramélisés. Une USIPA typique, mais délicieusement bien faite, langoureuse et satisfaisante.

750 ml bottle from LCBO. Don Mills, ON. 5.6% Alc./Vol. Pours a hazy deep amber colour with one finger of lasting white head. It has an appealing floral aroma with a mild whiff of caramel scent. Taste is hoppy, peppery with a spicy finish. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Beautiful lacing clings to the side of the glass.

mathieuc (1731) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
Bottle shared by Jean-Michael, thanks! Pours a nice golden with a medium white head that leaves great lacing patterns. Nose is of tropical fruits, pine, some sugar and... wheat? It isn’t listed on the bottle but this is the impression I got. Taste is fruity and bitter, not overly sweet but certainly not dry. Some floral hops. Body is medium, carbonation too. Hops were just a touch harsh but I really enjoyed that one still.

Minderbinder (2222) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle 600ml. Pours amber with low beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of fruits, tropical stuff, citrus. Taste is of tropical fruits, citrus, bitterness, soap, slight malty/caramel twist. Palate: Light-medium body. Soft carbonation. Overall: Just a tad too much caramel in there for my liking, but certainly not striaght-up unbalanced. Good.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Bouteille de 600 ml achetée sur place à la brasserie. Dégustée le 22 août 2013 (Shaker). Bière ambrée limpide. Mousse assez lorsque versée, col blanc moyen crémeux, très persistant. Très effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur de sucre brûlé marquée, de caramel. Plutôt corsée en amorce, saveur de pamplemousse marquée et un peu de résine (pin). Se boit bien, très typée pamplemousse comme IPA.
