COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer doesn’t hold back. We start with as much Canadian barley as we can fit in our mash mixer, then add some toasty Munich malt and toffee-flavoured crystal malt for a rich, malty balance to the hop onslaught that follows. We cram our kettle with Centennial and Cascade hop varieties for refreshing clean bitterness and hop flavour, then dry hop in the fermenter for an aroma that will spank you right in the face. Party like its 1772!

Said fuck it and got a full glass despite a deep feeling that it was not worth it. Options were limited. Nice looking pour. Caramelly and sweet nose that lacks any complexity, more sweet peach / rrgf blend on the candy side. Gotta smell deep. After a long sit this gained a bit of citrus yet retained the caramel portion. Average bitterness that mostly fades. Averageish ish ish.

Nice aroma of tangerine and berries. The colour is somewhat unusual for an IPA. Good malt and hop flavour however the bittering hops could be scaled down a few IBU’s. An average beer that could be a great beer with a few adjustments.

This is very different from other IPA’s i have had and not in a good way. There is something off putting about it. It has decent mouth feel and dark amber colour, but it almost taste like the hops are off. The bitterness is under control and is almost refreshing at the end. It feels like the hops are a little rancid and not very fresh. Not a bad IPA, but not a great example either.

BrewGoblin (532) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
I live in Charlottetown, had this many a time and it seems to keep getting worse, As far as looks go it is somewhat dark for the style and seems overly heady as well, more akin to an IIPA but without the flavour. It has a decent mouthfeel, not too thick/oily and not too watery as I find most of PEIBC/Gahan’s other lighter offerings. Flavour is mostly sweet, slightly caramel maltiness with a light trace of floral hops. Too sweet and not hoppy enough for my IPA tastes.

A nice solid IPA. Nothing interesting or unusual, just a straightforward and standard IPA. Nose was a bit light but consisted mostly of citrus and sweet malt. Flavor was malt upfront with a decent bitterness at the end. Medium bodied. Nothing groundbreaking but good.

Thanks northropfrye. Pours a lovely hazy orange with amazing marshmallow head. Nice honey and mango aromas. Malty sweet flavors with an underwhelming bitterness. Nice stuff from PEI.

Pale amber-orange pour. Thick white head. The aroma is pretty lovely - a soft spicy/fruity hop nose. Some orange peel and a bit of toffee in addition to some fairly rich hoppiness. Assertive bitterness but well balanced. Quite a lovely brew actually. Its neither overly fruity or overly dank but is quite pleasant in its balance.
