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.

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

I love the combination of citrus and bitter flavours in this beer! With a nice zippy level of carbonation this is a great refreshing beer for a hot day, and I could see it pairing well with grilled seafood, or perhaps lime tortilla chips and fresh guacamole.

Aroma is citrus, lemon grass, earthiness, clove and a pe sweet graininess. Taste and lightly roasted malts with a deep hop presence. The bitterness maintains to finish with light/medium tartiness. Appearance is a cloudy gold/orange. The pearl head is thin and retains moderately.

mcberko (6045) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
On tap at The Underground, pours a clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma brings out light piney notes and biscuity notes. Flavour brings out an excellent balance of smooth piney hops, some resin and crisp biscuity malt. Nicely hoppy, without any astringency. Excellent IPA.

The Amarillo hops give the aroma a tropical note which is not cancelled out by the citrus Cascade. Rather, the citrus comes through in the flavor. Bready malts carry the weight and the beer finishes towards the dry side. I wouldn’t go out of my way for this but not bad. Thanks cards04!

rodenbach99 (3097) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Une bière cuivrée qui ne mousse pas. Un nez malté avec une touche de levure et de houblon amère. Une bouche en malt avec une finale piquante. Peu à dire ou à redire de cette IPA.

Même si ce n’est pas des plus flamboyants, c’est doré et voilée et la mousse n’est qu’un mince voile. Une dentelle fait partie du tableau. Est-elle brassée depuis longtemps? Parce que ça ne sent pas très fort. Le malt et le caramel principalement, avec un léger parfum d’agrumes. Le goût lui, est assez puissant. Une belle amertume tranchante qui se tient du côté des agrumes. L’arrière-goût est des plus amers. De belles notes minérales tout au long de la dégustation sont présentes. Une IPA générique.
