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.

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.

Very low carbonation with this on tap. Pretty much an average IPA with a bit more flavour and less bitterness.

Eructoblaster (3844) - 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.

Narnad (1518) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2013
From a bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a very hazy orange color with a huge, pillowy white head that sticks around. Aroma has a mix of grapefruit, light orange and typical "cascadey" nose with a light touch of crisp, sweetness from the malt. Flavor has a very nice grapefruit and orange citrus mix. The grapefruit lends a slight acidity and the orange actually tastes like orange slices in the brew. Alcohol creeps up late in the tasting. Body is modest with a slight hot feeling. Overall a pretty good IPA with a good dose of hops.

My all season go to beer. Citrus and hops dominate this beer. Nice carbonation, sexy lacing and just all around balanced. Not a "hop monster" but its not supposed to be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice hop aroma coming off the light amber body. Grassy and pine are the main notes coming through. Big punch of hops up front and a good crisp bitterness to finish it off. slightly drying on the back.
