Can. Purchased at BCLDB. Ale glass. Amberish golden colour. Small head that disappears quickly. Slightly hoppy nose. Mild IPA flavour with a hoppy mid pallete and bitter follow through.

Can. This is a good bitter but it is not an IPA. The beer pours a pretty mid-amber color but the head dissipates almost instantly indicating little malt to back it up. And indeed this is the case. The effervescence is too low even for an ale and thus fails to carry what little floral hop bouquet there is to your nose. The bitterness is good for the level of maltiness but low for an IPA. I was looking for some floral flavours but there is little hop flavour. There is some toasted maltiness from a medium crystal which is nice and saves the beer. Finishes crisp and clean. A good beer to introduce people to a low level IPA but needs more hop flavour and aroma and a higher OG to boost alcohol level to at least 6% for a real IPA.

Good malt, flavour reminded me of choclate and strawberries. More generaly, very english. The hops were restrained but worked well as intended: earthy, crisp, and mild.

CapFlu (4462) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2006
(Draught) Sampled at the Raven Pub in Deep Cove, BC. Large foam cloud atop a mildly caarbonated golden body. Nose of piney and English hops. Flavour is very piney with underlying Brit hoppiness and malt. Much better than I’d anticipated...
