COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mad & Noisy is a new small batch series from Creemore Springs Brewery, named after the two rivers that merge and flow through the village of Creemore. The first release is Hops & Bolts India Pale Lager, a Czech twist on an English IPA. Hops & Bolts IPL is a bit lighter than an IPA, but a bit fuller than your golden lager, featuring a pithy bitterness that blends to a silky balancing malt sweetness. In the glass, you’ll see a slight unfiltered haze which settles to a bright orange-cedar colour and a dense, lingering off-white head. The big hoppy aroma features a blend of light tropical fruits and bold piney and grassy notes.

Nice look and smell but overwhelming taste of grapefruit and very tart/sour aftertaste... seems decent for summertime

jgb9348 (4893) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Super hazy copper and bronze coloured body with a definite orange glow and a ridiculously large and microfoamed five centimetre tall tan head - very nice looking indeed. Aroma of alcohol, cardboard, pale malt, hop pellets, earth, funk and a bit of stale malt - odd. Medium-bodied; Chewy cereal and grain flavours of malt at first with a bit of a cardboard bite and some stale hop flavours showing only a touch of citrus flavours and not much else. Aftertaste shows a little cardboard and cereal flavour from the malt with a bit of alcohol bite and not much else - fairly mild and not inspired. Overall, a pretty dull beer with no hop flavours, no depth in flavours or complexity and just a stale malt flavour. I sampled this 625 mL bottle purchased from Marche Des Sauveurs in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on 20-September-2014 for CA$5,29 sampled at home in Washington on 26-December-2014.

Nice head, appealing aroma, bitter yet malty. Interesting hybrid. Satisfactory beer

625 ml bottle. Pours a very cloudy orange amber with a resilient white-orangeish head. Aroma is caramel, herbs, grapefruit. Flavor is grapefruit, oranges, very fruity, nice caramel shot. Finish is grapefruit, not so bitter, but very fruity! Medium body, somewhat sticky mouthfeel and average carbonation.
