COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To admit that the brewer at Half Pints is a bit of a hophead is an understatement. This India Pale Ale is unabashedly hoppy, not only from the Amarillo hops we add to the brew kettle, but also from the northwest U.S. variety called Cascade that we add directly to the final tank. A firm toasted malt presence forms the background for all of these hops, and we're confident our Little Scrapper IPA could take other so-called IPA's to the mat if called upon to do so. Try it with a curry or a basket of beer battered fish & chips. Serve in a glass at 8 degrees celcius. Unpasturized.

Everything a good IPA should be; great piney, grapefruit hops and rich malt on the nose. Aromas follow through on the palate with an appetizing bitter finish. A definite "go-to" for IPA lovers.

solidfunk (4168) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Decent well-rounded ipa. A little citrus, though this isn’t quite as fresh as it ought to be, and lots of malt. Pours orange with good head and lacing. Average carbonation. Finishes bitter with residual sweetness. Bottle at wvrst.

Pleasant citrus flavours balance this beer to a great drinkability. Excellent beer to have on tap!

BeerandBlues2 (9839) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Bottle at Bottlescrew Bill’s Old English Pub. Pours lightly hazy amber with a medium to large, off-white creamy head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is pine, resin, and citrus hops, honey and cookie malt, apple esters, and light diacetyl notes. Flavor is medium to moderate hops and bitterness, light esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

it's got an orange body with a white head. The taste really lingers in the mouth which is great since its a highly enjoyable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A pretty good IPA. I picked this up (at a surprising expense) at C’est What? in Toronto. Very bitter, slightly unbalanced. Rich in aroma with a brownish red coloration.

Jokine (51) - Manitoba, CANADA - APR 12, 2013
Very low carbonation with this on tap. Pretty much an average IPA with a bit more flavour and less bitterness.

Eructoblaster (3058) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2013
Bottle - 341ml. Hazy amber body with a thin off-white creamy/frothy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with melon and grapefruit hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries citrusy, woody, and grainy notes. Ends with a good bitter finish. Enjoyable.
