Mad & Noisy is a new small batch series from Creemore Springs Brewery, named after the two rivers that merge and flow through the village of Creemore. The first release is Hops & Bolts India Pale Lager, a Czech twist on an English IPA. Hops & Bolts IPL is a bit lighter than an IPA, but a bit fuller than your golden lager, featuring a pithy bitterness that blends to a silky balancing malt sweetness. In the glass, you’ll see a slight unfiltered haze which settles to a bright orange-cedar colour and a dense, lingering off-white head. The big hoppy aroma features a blend of light tropical fruits and bold piney and grassy notes.

Bierdimpfe (490) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 9, 2016
Hazy dark gold color with moderate activity. Creamy beige 3 finger island head, lasting around 10 minutes, with good leggings. Flavors of biscuits, caramel, orange, pineapple, lemon, roasted grains, herbal spices. Sugary yet overwhelmed by bitterness. Oily, almost full body, with moderate carbonation. Strong strength finish, lingering astringent grassy and piney hops, with caramel and tropical fruits. Feels more like an IPA. The smell is faint and the taste is decent, but nothing amazing. Okay freshness, but a little dull. A little too strong for the lack of flavors. Overall the quality is pretty average for this craft.

Cloudy orange color. Tropical fruit and some pine in the aroma. Taste starts kind of watery then becomes quite bitter with some pine notes

jamestulloch (3486) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 29, 2016
Can from LCBO. Hazy orange body with a thin white head. Average carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of dried grass, marmalade and stale hops. Flavour of tonic water and grain. Thin body with a watery texture. Soft fizz. Very forgettable.

portwood (182) - Markham, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2016
Smell: orange peel, caramel, floral hops. Taste: thin mouth feel, low carbonation. Finish: bitter dry, mild pine note, astringent. Seems unbalanced - bitter without much citrus. (can code D131616:01, tasted 06/05/16)

ChadPoole (312) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2016
Can from the beer store. Pours orange amber with a white head that leaves some light lacing. Aroma is malts and carmel with a hint of hops. Flavour is sweet malts and tangy hops which gives it a good bitterness. Good beer.

50 cl can. Pours a clear amber with minimal white head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is bitter. Palate is thin with a mild aftertaste. Overall is a good offering from a commercial brewery.

UDBeernut (2687) - Earth & Jacksonville (weekends), Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2016
can from the local LCBO in Kitchener, which, is a place I can almost tolerate regardless of Canada and its insolence. I shall have you liquidated. out of the can zero fux given as per usual. Mild booze nose, light grass. taste is pretty much euro trash lager, and given my surroundings, it fits. B sides, all you bruhs acting like Canada won the war of 1812 let me in on the facts of life. #1) it was the English empire in basically its high point... Canada won jack shit..... but bend your knee to the monarch #2) We got Washington State, Idaho (u a ho), and Oregon out the resulting treaty..... I am pretty sure we won this on bruhs. BY. A. LARGE. MARGIN. Medium and somewhat dry body, like my humor. or is it humore?

Moolesen (479) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2016
Can 47,3cl. Dark orange with an off white head. Malty aroma, no sign of hops. In the taste though there are plenty of hops. Very bitter, but no aroma hops, surprisingly. Medium length

hellonearth (121) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
UPDATED: APR 22, 2016 Orangée avec un petit col de mousse. Arômes fruitiers (petits fruits, papaye). Goût houbloné aux notes de caramel torrefié. Pas très profonde. Sans grande aventure gustative. Mais, somme toute, honnête..
