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.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2010
Gravity cask at Volo, served in an English pint glass. Pours hazy orange-amber with a rocky white head. Head fades but laces well while it lasts. Big and fresh on the nose, with aromas of flowers, pine, grapefruit, lemon, grape and toffee. Flavour is moderately sweet throughout, ending with a long hop-floral finish. On the palate, medium in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is an excellent IPA in the English style. Well hopped with American hops, but still balanced and subtle. The floral aroma is beautiful. A most pleasant surprise! 2010-04-30

Eminently drinkable IPA. 500ml bottle bought at the brewery, poured into a shaker. Nice balance between the British and American IPA styles, citrusy and bitter while remaining nice and malty, almost earthy at the same time. I found the carbonation a bit weak - felt somewhat flat in the mouth and the bright white head dissipated rather quickly. Maybe just the bottle I got, or the fact that it sat in my beer fridge, forgotten at the back, for a few months before I remembered it was there...I’ll buy another for comparison’s sake. Good beer.

600mL bottle from the Lykbow. Pours a nice golden copper with a medium rocky head. Aroma is decent, bursting with hoppy citrus characters that play off the malts really well. Flavour has a lot of bittering hops upfront, making way for delicious bready-biscuit caramalts, followed by citrusy flavour hops. Finishes clean with lingering bitterness and malty sweetness. Body is medium, with somewhat tamed carbonation. Vaguely reminiscent of Sgt. Major’s IPA. Vaguely. This is a very solid beer, I would drink this regularly if it were more than just a seasonal. Another good ones from Beau’s.

600mL bottle from the LCBO. Pours a copper colour with nice foamy white head that sadly dissipates fairly quickly. Smell is cirtusy and hoppy to the max, it smells almost entirely of grapefruit and lemon, though there is a small roasted cereal hint. Palate is really nice, some soft carbonation that cleanses the palate rather than attacking it, and it has a heavier feel, but still lightly refreshing. Taste is pretty nice, not a lot of hops on the first taste, but it gradually builds in your mouth and then lingers for a bit with a slightly bitter aftertaste. A nice beer, quite refreshing, and a decent IPA. Well done Beaus.

Bière cuivré avec un bon goût plutôt très malté, dégusté à la brasserie en fut. Pétillante et rafraîchissante.

I tried this beer on April 8, 2011 after purchasing from the Queen’s Quay LCBO outlet. The beer poured a translucent copper colour with a generous light brown head. The aroma was pine, citrus, and malt. Very much like an English bitter. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was malty, with grapefruity hoppish bitterness.

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.
