Editor’s note - Hoppercar is a dry-hopped version of Conductor’s Craft Ale We used 5 different malts from Germany, France, Britain and Canada to give Conductor’s a biscuity, toasted, caramel base, and a combination of 5 different hops from Germany, the Czech Republic and the Pacific Northwest of the USA. To finish the beer we designed and built in-house a ‘hopback’ mechanism that infuses the hop aromas into the beer in line from the kettle as the beer goes into the fermenter. We use whole leaf hops of Cascade and spicy German Tetnanger in the hopback to provide a unique and intense hop aroma that is familiar but uniquely presented.

Canmoore (203) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2014
Pours a clear copper, and a huge creamy white head. Aroma notes include beautiful notes of citrus, caramel, toffee, and chewy malts. Tasting notes include rich caramels, toffee, citrus, and a delicate pine resin bitter finish. I always looked passed this beer, and now I wish I hadn’t! I think I might have a new go to beer!

WheatKing (1162) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2014
Tall can. Pours clear amber with white head. Nose is citrus, spicy, floral, earth. Flavour is same with really nice malt balance. This is probably the surprise beer of my Ontario trip, wasn’t expecting much but everything came together really well. If I still lived here it would be a favourite.

Bottle from brewery. Pours crystal clear deep orange with lacing. Aroma is spicy, floral, and fruity; an interesting mix of American and noble hops. Taste is full of caramalts and floral hops, with a nice bitter finish. Nice full body. Enjoyed this one!

lacyhead (20) - Burlington, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2013
Pours slightly hazy copper coloured with off-white head. Bready or biscuity aroma. Bitter hops with strong grapefruit taste which lingers. A nice beer that I would have again.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
Can: Poured an amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light citrus hoppy notes with some light caramelized malt notes. Taste is also dominated by citrus hoppy notes with some well-balanced dry Noble hops backed with a solid caramelized malt profile with limited residual sugar. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. I must admit I didn’t have high expectation but was pleasantly surprised by this mix of West Coast and Noble hops.

Tessic (816) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2013
This ale poured a deep amber colour with a minimal , light tan coloured head. Scents include citrus hops, pineapple and grass. First sip was smooth with a medium hop bite. Flavours of the citrus hops and grass most predominant. Finish is medium bitter with lemon flavours lingering.
