COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
True IPA’s were high in both alcohol and hops to survive the long hot voyage from Britain to India. This makes it a big and flavour beer style. Our version is no exception. Traditional English malts and hops are used to give this copper brew a big flavour. This beer has a slightly roasted note with a strong hop bitterness and flavour.

LadySusan (720) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 25, 2009
On tap at Brewpub. The color is amber not much head. A nice strong taste of hops with some malt added. Also added is a taste of berry fruits to give it some sweetnes. A good example off what an I.P.A. should taste like.

From the cask at the brewery. Big tobacco aroma with a bolder hop bitterness than from the keg (tried both). Complex English-style amber and caramel malts, with good hop bitterness, also from English style hops (fuggles?). Good hoppy finish. Very nice.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2008
Golden-red colour. Very woody hop nose with some caramel. Dry, woody IPA with lots of centennial and cascade. Solid caramel backbone. Dry, slightly herbal, woody finish.

Beershine (5213) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2008
at brewpub. Red, clear, off-white head. Unexpected berries in nose. Not tasting totally fresh. Is more floral than hoppy in the aroma. Soft mouthfeel. Some hop is there in the aftertaste. It’s balanced and fruity but disappointing.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2008
pint- also had the cask example at the brewery but this review will comment only upon the draft version. Rose petals/perfume like aroma that is faint and fleeting. first sip reveals a lot of sweetness, and semi-citrusy hops with little in the way of hop bitterness. Im not sure if the beer is underattenuated, or just sweet. It’s a decent and drinkable brew, but not a very good representative of the style.

Quevillon (2453) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2008
Bu sur place en fut (20 oz), le 12/7/08. Couleur thé glacé un peu brumeuse, mince collet. Arome d’houblon plustôt végétal, un peu amère. Goût d’herbe houblonné, légèrement amère. IPA bizzard, bien qu’elle a les catéristique de son style, c’est son côté végétal qui est étrange!

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 22, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. I had both the cask version and the regular version. Regular: Light amber with a white head. Not as good as the tankhouse beer. The hops are a bit more lonesome here in that they stand out unbalanced without complement. Has a fairly quick finish. An OK beer, but not great (score: 2.9). Cask:Pours hazy light brown to dark amber with a big bubbled white head. Has an intense chocolate and butterscotch aroma. Smooth. Very smooth. The tongue is saturated with lemon-lime flavors. Lots of tea flavors to this as well. Has a very drying finish. On cask, this beer is completely transformed. I simply would not recognize the cask vs. keg versions of this beer as being the same.

draught: cloudy copper colour. Flower and hops aroma and tastes the same, nice hops for sure.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2008
On tap- Clear amber body topped with a frothy white foam. Minute lacing. Bready, cookie dough, fresh hoppy nose with spices and floral notes. Cookie dough up front with floral hops, a touch of a metallic twang, with a grapefruit, biscuit component leading into the finish. Medium bodied, perhaps a touch alcoholic. All in all, well made.

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2008
A pint at the brewery after the tour, Dry hop, cask conditioned version. It pours a coppery red colour with a lithe tan head. Floral hoppy nots are predominant with some fruity undertones. It has a very nice hop taste with a slight malt blending in at the end to perfect the aftertaste. A very nice mouthfeel compliments everything else good about this beer.
