(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 from the brewery via Lubiere, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep copper with a large, orange-tan head. Aroma: Quite sweet and malty, somewhat fruity, a bit savoury/brothy, pine/resin and vaguely citrusy hops, big rich caramel/toffee and treacle, slightly peppery with maybe a touch of a barfy, infected note, a touch of floral hops too. Palate: Medium+ body with velvety effervescence. Flav.: Very malt-forward with lots of brown sugar, slightly burnt, bright fruitiness, some pine/resin and citrus, a bit floral, vaguely fruity, a bit of booze; lightly sweet with disappointing bitterness and a slightly boozy, fairly malty, slightly harsh finish.

This beaver is screaming for more hops.

600ml bottle. Hazy copper with a frothy beige head. Flavors are toasted cereals, overripe borderline rotten tropical fruits, caramel, melon, pine resin, spicy wet socks and alcohol with woodsy notes. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, sticky texture.

Gorgeous deep copper pour with a thick, frothy head. Smells like ... brown sugar? This is different from any IPA I’ve ever had, British or West Coast. I’d call this a desser beer, and a tasty one at that. Well done.

A DIPA with a difference. Starts with a fairly mild malt and vegetal nose. Beautiful orange/amber body with a thin well laced white head. The brown sugar malt leads the taste profile but quickly gets more challenging with gnarley grapefruit and earthy hops, prunes, vegetal, oak and woody elements. Some challenging tastes, but Beau’s isn’t afraid of doing that. There is a slight warmth from the booze, strong effervescence and a slight metallic edge as well. The blend keeps coming together as the beer breaths and approaches room temperature. A nice creation but I won’t be coifing one of these every night

Boutip (5346) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
Bottle: Poured a deep amber color ale with a giant head with great retention (also a little bit of gushing was noticed which makes me wonder if the bottle was infected). Aroma of caramelized malt with earthy hops is OK. Taste is dominated by sweet caramelized malt with some earthy hops notes. Body is pretty full with lots of carbonation. I don’t like IIPA with too much caramel malt so I can’t say I really enjoyed that one.

DuffMan (8316) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle, shared by Shea at game night with heavylaevy, TvM, phantomhennes, and others. Dark orange-amber, hazy, with a low beige head. Aroma is malty and woody. The flavours here are sweet fruity caramel, with a marmalade quality, some woody/earthy undertones. Not getting any hop signature at all, and there is only modest bitterness in the finish. This carries no resemblance to a DIPA, but it is a drinkable brew.

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.

HipHopOpotamus (233) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2014
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 (1521) - 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.
