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.

Does not taste like a double IPA but nevertheless a quite interesting and well done beer. It has a pleasant malt taste with a distinctive oak flavour and a good water base indicative of a brewery with a very good source of water. There is some hop bitterness but nothing close to the claimed 99 IBU or even that of a typical DIPA. It is very well balanced and perhaps the oak flavour in the malt neutralizes some of the hop bitterness. The high alcoholic content is not noticeable at all. Some expecting a typical DIPA might be disappointed but judged on its own merits it is a fine and somewhat original beer.

First up this thing does not smell, or taste like any IPA I have ever had, let alone a Double IPA. On the nose I got a little bit of a turpentine/chemical smell, but got a lot of other things including, strangely for an IPA, some brown sugar and malt. Taste wise it is just not an IPA. More bready, with hints of vegetable.

Purchased from LCBO in the Wild Oat Series 4 pack. It was a bit different, not quite like other Double IPA’s but overall I still liked this beer. The high 9.9% alcohol was well hidden in this beer.

Bottle. Pours clear ruby. Aroma of oak, fruit, and pepper. Taste is very oaky and bitter, with some cherry. Pretty good.

lesifflebiere (1242) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 15, 2014
Bière cuivrée avec une bonne mousse couleur crème, au nez elle laisse percer d’abord les malts caramel très sucrés, puis ensuite un peu de houblons. Au goût, toujours les malts à l’avant, puis ensuite une tranchante amertume, qu’aucun boisé de chêne ne vient transpercer, malheureusement. On dirait vraiment une pale ale houblonnée, et non pas une double india. Elle est bonne, bien agréable même, mais elle sonne un peu faux sur tous les tableaux, ce qui est bien dommage.

Bière cuivrée, quasi-limpide, avec un mince halo de mousse. Nez malté de caramel et de houblons. En bouche, le côté caramel se mélange à une amertume semi-agressive. Cette double IPA oak aged, du haut de ses 9.9% d’alcool, créait beaucoup d’attentes dans ma tête de jeune garçon. Mais au bilan, je me suis retrouvé avec quelque chose qui ressemble à une IPA Anglaise avec un petit «kick» d’alcool plus prononcé. Pas vraiment de bois! C’est bon, mais «not as advertised»...

pushkinwow (1990) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO mixer holiday pack. Dark amber with a creamy tan head. Some oak, resin, slightly bitter, everything fairly muted with some caramel malts. Light carbonation and moderate body. slightly bittersweet, decent.

600 mL bottle. Transparent ruby-copper-brown with a medium beige head. Smells neither IIPAish nor barrel aged. Smells fairly mild and nondescript, actually. Not bad, just mild. Something unappealing hits right away in the flavour. Some serious cardboard, maybe. After that it’s okay, although I wouldn’t guess that this is oak aged. The malt is okay, but they need to re-think the hops. Nice bitterness, though. Meh.

Eructoblaster (2981) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle - 600ml. Dark copper body with a thick off-white foamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with woody, grassy, and some brown sugar hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its strong hoppy taste carries malty, cinnamon, fruity, and oaky notes. Ends with a long, robust, warming bittersweet finish. Not bad, but maybe a bit too sweet.
