COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Oakes (13600) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2015
Bottle from Legacy. Cloudy and pale, big head. The aroma is very fruity, coriander leaf, grapefruit and blood orange, with biscuity pale malts. Very bitter, clean, lightly fruity, citrus rind. Hugely refreshing, lightly effervescent. One of their best - and they make a lot of nice beers on this type. Perfect beach beer.

Lubiere (11237) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2015
A hazed golden ale with a thick frothy lacing white head. In aroma, sweet fruity biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, light citrus pulp, very nice. In mouth, resinous floral hops over nice sweet biscuit malt, very nice and British. On tap at brewery.

mcberko (9738) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2015
750mL bottle, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is quite spicy and biscuity, with light piney hops - a little grassy too. Flavour is like a cross between a pilsner and an IPA, with lots of grassy hops, light pine and biscuity malt. Really well-balanced, grassy, and crisp. Excellent stuff.

Scopey (9384) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Keg at Stillwell. It pours cloudy orange with a decent white head. The nose is soft, juicy, orange muffin, candied peel, mango, apricot, brioche and almond croissant. The taste is smooth, toasty, bitter-sweet, toasty, earthy, bready malts, mild alcohol, apricot, brioche, some alcohol warmth and toasty grass with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate, velvety carbonation. Not a whole lot to it, but enjoyable. Well-rounded and quaffable.

jercraigs (8666) - 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.

MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Conifers line this beach’s pineapple and passionfruit stands, lending bitter wooden lengths to this otherwise very sunny IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A foam cumulus settles atop the hazy sunshine yellow.
-The mouthfeel is lean and super clean, as is expected for TDD brews.
-This is obviously highly drinkable, despite the important bitterness.
-I felt like the aroma was not as engaging as the flavor profile, even though it was still enjoyable.

Bottle.

DuffMan (8062) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle, shared with Robbie. Hazy medium gold, thick, creamy white head that stays like a statue-- this beer looks perfect! Powerful white grapefruit hops steal the show, long strong bitterness, crackery pale malts. So drinkable and tasty!

sebletitje (7908) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 27, 2014
Draft @ ML Fontainas, Québec event. Orangée, col épais blanc-beige. Arôme est légèrement fruirté sur une pointe tropicale avec un rétro nasal rappelant le fruit de la passion et léger résineux. Possible Cascade avec une petite note rustique en amérisant. Palais est délicieux au niveau des houblons tirant sur un Citra et Amarillo? bien que le malté domine sur la fin, ce dernier étant sec, pâle sur pointe de pils. Le fruité vient y ajouter complexité pour une bière facile à boire. Le tout conservant une petite note belge dans la levure.

[7385-20150714] Tap. Mild grainy fruit aroma. Slightly hazy, light orange brown body with a quick foamy off-white head and some lacing. Bitter stringy vegetable and acidic toasted grains flavour. Medium body. Interesting arrangement. (6/3/7/3/13) 3.2
