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.

En bouteille. Au nez, on perçoit facilement la levure. Un mélange de levure et de houblons en fait. À l’oeil, sans être très originale (d’un style "blonde classique"), elle est très réussie! La mousse est superbe et tient le coup longtemps. Le corps est rond. On goûte les agrûmes mais on est loin d’une Hop Bomb américaine pour autant. La levure est trop présente en bouche aussi.

Very fitting name for this brew as it brings me back to the long forgotten "beach days". Pours a light hazy amber with a large foamy white head. This beer smells very tropical and citrusy. Aromas of grapefruit, cedar, and mango lead the way here. Has a medium body with a slick mouthfeel, goes down easy and is very refreshing. There’s a beautiful balance of sweet and bitter with a nice malty caramel backbone. Definitely a beer for the summer.

Stoned99 (132) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle from Halles St-Jean. Aroma: citrus, peaches, pines. App: clear copper with medium frothy head. Taste and palate: average to high carbonation, medium body, medium bitterness. Overall: a good IPA, well balanced. Aroma is really good, taste is good. Another good beer from TD, not as good as surfeurs apocalypso but still good.

A stunning beauty of style, this IPA’s devilishly handsome appearance begs you to dive in deep, light copper with a tightly bubbled froth. Luckily, it delivers heartily with a scent of citrus and tropical fruit hops, some caramel sweetness and cereal graininess. These flavours are all present for the tastebuds in this mid carbonated and medium-full feeling hop-snack. I was able to detect a bit of boozy taste, not harsh amounts but enough to feel like you’re getting a warm up.

Hidden_Pooch (409) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - OCT 8, 2014
I would go to Shawi Beach if it involves drinking these all day in the sun. Pours a hazy amber with a massive frothy head. Aroma is of mango, tropical hops, and pine. Tastes of mango, caramel, pine, and citrus. Has a medium chewy body with average carbonation. and good lacing. Has a nice floral bitterness and is a very refreshing IPA.

Enjoyed this on an unseasonably warm Sunday in the fall, while making sushi and apple/cranberry pies. Looks very pretty in a Duvel glass.

Une blonde voilée, une mousse durable, une dentelle impeccable, c’est beau à regarder. Un nez plutôt timide, où on arrive toutefois à sentir de la résine de conifère, du feuillage, des agrumes et d’autres fruits tropicaux variés. Le goût est houblonné, bien amer et ce, de façon polie et appréciable. Les fruits sont assez plaisants en bouche. Par moment c’est poivré et ça égratigne un peu. Étrangement, ça me semble pas tout à fait raffiné, mais bien agréable. (1237-130914)

PhillyCraft (3441) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Sample at Blackback with Al, Golden orange pour with frothy white head. Notes are biscuit, white wine, peppery hop, menthol and some other Belgian tasting stuff. This was not my thing.

Pours foggy orange yellow with a small frothy white top. Aroma is lemon, light grapefruit and honey malts. Taste is crisp, honey and lemon grains, biscuit and grapefruit hop.

Atheist_Peace (977) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2014
Dark golden/light amber pour with a big fluffy white head that has good staying power and leaves a lovely lace. Fairly bright tropical fruit on the nose with a fresh spruce note as well. I also seem to be getting a light Belgian yeast note as well. A little less fruity on the palate, but still well packed with tropical notes. I still get a slight Belgian feel but it’s more muted than it was on the palate. Finishes with a crisp, lingering bitterness.
