La Shawi Beach IPA est née de l’envie irrésistible, suite à l’accablante humidité d’une journée de juillet, de concocter une nouvelle IPA aux accents tropicaux. Il en résulte une bière ambrée et cristalline au nez rafraîchissant de pamplemousse blanc, de cèdre et de poivre long. La bouche, désaltérante, est le reflet de ce profil auquel s’ajoute d’agréables notes de citron et de menthol. La finale, bien marquée des houblons américains et australiens, s’étale sur le palais comme le roi des vacanciers sous le soleil des tropiques.

fiulijn (17462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2015
Tasting at Matt’s; 6.5% ABV
Hazy blond color, small head. The aroma is very grassy, a bit earthy, like a good Lager/Pilsner. The mouthfeel is smooth and very dry; powerful crispy malts; the bitterness is strong, it has a grassy character, lightly fruity, although the bitterness in the final is a bit too strong.

pushkinwow (2433) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2015
On tap at Beau’s Oktoberfest 2015. Light hazy amber with a billowy white head. Peach, mango, wheat and maybe some light rye, some resin, moderate body and carbonation, but of dryness and more citrus on the finish along with mint and lemon.

dfearnley (1487) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 19, 2015
Bottle to flute Spruce, pine, grapefruit, a little peach, and pepper. Hazy light amber with particulates and a 1 cm frothy white head. Taste is pepper, pine, malt, loads of grapefruit and great lingering bitterness.

UXO (1128) - CANADA - OCT 18, 2015
Appearance: hazy straw with two fingers of fluffy off-white head, good retention and patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: pine resin, citrus, caramel malt, tropical fruit, slight catty and woody. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, decently crisp medium duration finish. (4/5) Maybe I’ve been overdoing it on the IPA’s lately, but this doesn’t seem all that memorable. It’s nice and all, but it just seems to lack a certain brightness or punch. Good, and this is the second time I’ve had it, but I don’t think I’ll bother again. (15/20)

Knolan (9) - New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 23, 2015 does not count
Had this on "tap" at the local beer store, in a Growler. Truly enjoyed. Very good IPA, not the normal strong after taste. It’s truly a summer beer, as it has that refreshing taste to it.

MunBro (943) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 22, 2015
Wow, an excellent IPA. Big nose of pine and citrus. Nice head and beautiful lacing with lots of retention. Flavour is tropical and citrus hops with nice bittering and pine notes. Also has a splash of white pepper and a good crisp finish. I would visit this beach again.

jercraigs (9154) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2015
2015-08-09. Lightly hazy dark yellow body with a big white head and lace. 3++ Aroma of sweet lemon, grassy notes and pale malt. Flavour is pleasantly bitter throughout, lemon and grass over pale malt base. Flavourful, the modest malt core let’s hope shine. 7++ Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft effervescent carb. Pretty nice and quite drinkable. On tap at Bellwoods, Toronto.
