COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(Wild Oats No. 3 • 9.9% alc/vol) Screamin’ Beaver (Oak Aged Double IPA) is an amped-up version of our Beaver•River I.P.Eh., Beau’s award-winning, extra-hoppy spring seasonal. This monster weighs in at 9.9% alc./vol. and 99 IBUs, and has been dry-hopped and aged on oak. Despite the intensity of malt and hop character, this beer is still incredibly drinkable and nicely balanced. Screamin’ Beaver was designed and first brewed in 2010.

600 mL bottle. Pours a dark amber colour with a lacy, lasting head of beige foam. Aroma is complex, candied orange, oak, caramel malt, cream and pine. Big and sweet, rounded out by a great big hop bite, 99 IBU’s of it to be exact, a long layered finish. Smooth as silk and medium carbonation. Do yourself a favour, don’t waste this by serving it right out of the fridge. A massive beer, really liked it.

I always like a nice dark IPA. This 99 IBU kicker hides the hops a bit with a malt forward blast of caramel and chocolate. Nice and roasty, with a touch of pine. Long bitter finish. Nice thickish sticky mouthfeel. Surprised it’s not rated higher. At first I was like blah, but then it grew on me quick by the end. Unique for sure. I think I might prefer it to the double mad tom’s even.

Bouteille 600 ml. 9.9%. Couleur Ambrée-orangée, mousse crémeuse beige. Arôme de bois, houblons, malt caramel. En bouche, douce, bois, malt, torréfaction, un peu de toffee, alcool, fruits noirs séchés. Finale caramel, houblon, amertume. Très bon, je m’attendais à moins...je ne sais pas si c’est la nouvelle batch mais wow...excellente.

Dark orange pour from a swing top glass bottle. Aroma was delicious resin citrus oak and malt. Flavor was super smooth. Just a touch bitter but nicely balanced by the sweet malt. Not overly sweet. The oak added a nice extra dimension. Good beer.

Ceramic 750 ml swing-top bottle. Packaged on May 18th, consumed on Sep 2nd. I first tried this beer on cask back in the spring, and honestly didn’t care for it too much - my notes say that I found "more booze than hops" in the aroma and flavour, and that the palate was sweet and sticky, making it tough to finish the pint. So I left this bottle in the fridge and half-forgot about it until finally cracking it tonight. I’m not sure if it was just because of bottle vs. cask, or if the three months or so of cold aging helped it, but I found it to be a quite different and very enjoyable beer. The aroma is less boozy than I recall, but still big, with the oak, malt and hops playing very nicely off each other, creating a nice combination of orange, caramel and mellow wood. The flavour starts sweet, with some notes of caramel and tropical fruit, but it turns dry and bitter remarkably quickly, with a wonderfully long and lingering finish of pine and grapefruit and wood. Mouthfeel is full but not sticky or cloying, with just enough carbonation to keep it feeling lively. All in all, a very nice beer!

Cask at the Rhino. Amber pour. Malty and chewy with a sweet, sticky underattenuated palate. Diacetyl and DMS – they may call this an IPA – but it ain’t.

On cask at the IPA Challenge, Volo 29/05/10. Pours a clear copper, slightly orange with a very quickly vanishing head. Aroma of resin prominant hops, oily and alcohol burn followed by caramel malt. Sweetness mixed with caramel notes. Boozy. Pretty good all things considered.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2010 [2862-20100508] Cask. Mild petrol grassy hops aroma. Hazy, dark orange body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head with lots of suspendies. Fruity thick bitter toasted orange skins flavour has oak and buttery notes with a bitter petrol hint aftertaste. Medium-full body. Surprisingly smooth for so bitter a brew. (7/3/7/3/15) 3.5

[2893E-20100529] Tap. Mild alcohol English profile hops aroma with some oak notes. Clear, amber body with a quick foamy white head. Sweet sugary molasses-like malt flavour. Medium body. Not very hoppy. (6/3/7/3/13) 3.2

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2011 Ceramic. Kindof hazy, copper. Pretty solid aroma -- spruce and floral hops, some oak as well -- which i think i more coming from the malt. You know the beer is sweet by its nose : you wouldn’t except what coming afterwards, though. For those who wants an hop kick -- that one delivers it. The problem is : that hop kick comes with a sugar kick (the lollipop variety!) as well. Totally unbalanced. I liked pretty much all of Beau offerings, but that one is pretty much a bottom-of-the-barrell. Oh well, they tried something. EDIT : 2011 version was better. Not excellent, but certainly better and wasn’t a sugar disaster anymore. Or was it just that much bitter? (99 IBU)
