COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Scent of malt, hops, and citrus. Clear rich orange colour. Flavour of burnt sugar, yeast, hops, and molasses. Medium in bitterness, body, and carbonation. A beer that is greater than the sum of its parts - quite refreshing.

gramity (1440) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Poured slightly hazy, copper colour with a creamy beige head. Grassy hop aroma. Medium body with a tart mouthfeel, sticky dry finish. Flavour of caramel malts, kind of astringent bitterness.

VT (1666) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2014
625 ml bottle. Pours a very cloudy orange amber with a resilient white-orangeish head. Aroma is caramel, herbs, grapefruit. Flavor is grapefruit, oranges, very fruity, nice caramel shot. Finish is grapefruit, not so bitter, but very fruity! Medium body, somewhat sticky mouthfeel and average carbonation.

Although lacking in aroma as there is some grass, but not much more. The beer is nicely bitter and medium bodied.

Pours an opaque orangey brown. Thin white head. Aromas are very weak grassiness. Not much going on here. Tastes are citrus and grass. This is all fairly mild. Overall, the Creemore safe approach to the IPA style permeates this one. Disappointing and did not meet my expectations.

Speedy_Charly (73) - Plaisance, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2014
Bouteille de 625ml chez Couche Tard. Très peu de mousse beige sur cette bière à robe ambrée très trouble et peu ragoûtante, mais au nez, l’arôme de malt houblonné est beaucoup plus apétissant. L’amertume du houblon attaque les papilles et les gencives dès l’entrée en bouche et perdure assez longtemps margré le peu de corps de cette bière somme toute raffraichissante pour peu quelle soit servie très froide. Un bel effort de la micro de Creemore

fullers (268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2014
On tap at the Smiling Buddha, Dovercourt & College, Toronto. Poured amber with thin white head. Hoppy aroma. Medium bodied. Pronounced hoppy bitterness that lingers. Not unpleasant, but far from my preferred evening glass.

mikedR (1334) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Nice. More of an IPP, as In pilsner. I say this because most IPLs have an underlying smoothness, but this has more of a springiness to it. Other than that, I like this one. (And yes, I do know an pilsner is a lager.)

Agtronic (25) - Laval, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2014
On tap at La Belle et la Boeuf burger bar in Laval. Appearance is murky, almost muddy looking. No head whatsoever, not looking very appetizing. Aroma is hoppy and promising. Taste is decently bitter up front and goes into a sort of "soapy" direction. I don’t even know how to describe it. I had difficulty finishing the pint. To its defense, it was served way too warm.

bunget (572) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
473ml can. Clear amber-orange body, big beige fluffy head with decent retention. Aroma is a bit dusty: resins, yeast, apricots, coriander. Taste of good herbal hops, caramel malt, a touch of yeast and grapefruit zest, bready aftertaste. Nicely balanced.
