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.

AwaKe (106) - Laval, CANADA - AUG 30, 2015
Bouteille de 600ml. Couleur ambrée, trouble, épaisse mousse blanche avec dentelle. A: pin, terre, agrumes, malt pâle. G: pamplemousse, terre, houblon US... Avec une finale caractéristique des bières du TDD, sucre/levure. P: modéré, un peu huileux avec effervescence médium-elevée. Rafraîchissant, bière d’été.

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.

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 (8670) - 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.

reebtogi (4891) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 6, 2015
600ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a finger of off-white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus with some earthy notes and light tropical fruits. Taste is a light fruity and malty sweetness with a citrus and earthy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Nice mouth feel. Overall, this is a easy drinking IPA that is nicely balanced and tasty.

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.
