COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A generously hopped IPA, balanced by a diabolical blend of rich specialty malts and pure mountain water. A wicked ale that leaves you lusting for more!

Fantastic, if a bit expensive. Nice hop blast with a touch of citrus on the nose. The taste is rich and bitter, but the hops are under control. A beautiful tang on the tongue and even in the 650ml bottle, this one disappears quite quickly and smoothly.

Bottled (shared by brunnsbe, thanks!). Amber colour ,medium small slightly off-white head. Aroma is bready malts, some mild hops, mild grassyness as well as some mild fruityness. Flavour is fruits, caramel malts, some mild floral notes and crisp crystal maltyness as well. Actually a quite balanced and pleasant IPA.

Wicked bright citrucy hops aroma. The aroma is right up there with some of the better IPAs. The flavor though was a little odd. There was some nice hops in there. Good citrus, notes, touches of piney resins, but there was next to no bitterness in the finish! It was quite odd, it was a semi sweet finish with zero bitterness. Not sure how they managed to do that!

TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 30, 2010
Nice hop aroma, the’s not really much else there, but it’s clear without being too much, or too close to an IIPA. Pours with decent head, some lacing, very nice orangy colour. Crisp, brisk and hoppy! Just waht an IPA should be, a touch of sweet malt, % and hops. The yeast comes early and is tempered by the hops wich last long but not too long. There is a definate ending, semms like not too many hop varieties in there. surprisingly, exaclty, accurate IPA. Pretty tasty too.

presario (4608) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2010
Bottle. Dark amber with minimal head. Aroma of hops, hops and woody hops. Flavour is woody hops but on some level unsatisfying. Perhaps thin lacking in malt middle and depth. Or maybe I am IPA spoiled.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear amber/orange, thin off-white head, spotty lacing. Nose is grapefruit, lemon, sweet malt, <checks the label> Really? Mt. Begbie? Wow! Good job guys! Okay, back to rating: Upon further inspection this shows solid balance, and the citrus blends into some peachy stonefruit aromas as well. Flavours are spicy, juicy, and well poised, plenty of yellow peach, honey, gentle spice, nice soft pine notes. Not the most in-your-face IPA, but I gotta say, this is an excellent example of the "Gentle IPA" class. Very pretty, and surprisingly recommended. Nice job Mt. Begbie, more like this please!

pours clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma is nice. Hopy and floral but pretty dull. Flavour is okay the hops are there but this is pretty uninpressive. All in all this is a very weak IPA.

mcberko (6272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 31, 2010
650mL bottle, pours clear copper with a tiny white head. Aroma of strong piney hops and some malt backing evident. Flavour is a surprisingly potent piney hop punch, with a soapy finish. Exceeded the expectations - very enjoyable.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 31, 2010
Light brown colour with orange hues and a healthy head. Nose: Luscious and bountiful hops, more hop, and then some hop. A one-man-band but a bloody good band at that! Taste: Freshest of fresh hop blast moving to redwood shaded pine. A tangy-tart gesture works its way in. Clamato juice imitation also comes forward. Touch of soap. Some old aged oak shows late and a light maple-like finish rides off. The freshness of this one is outstanding. Fabulous stuff! Brilliant!

2014-07-28, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 7-5-7-2-14=35
Dark amber color, clean, with creamy head. Timid aroma of caramel and hop with a light fruity touch. Lean moutfeel, off-dry; the malt flavor is quite caramelly, correct bitterness, light fruity hops. The final is a bit dry and weak, and astringent.
Decent.

2010-03-19, bottle, 8-5-6-3-13=35
Red amber color, clean; small head. Mild aroma, but very pleasant: creamy toffee and resiny hop, biscuity, nutty. Unfortunately the rest is not up to the promise; just a very common caramel flavor, with a dryish mouthfeel, correct bitterness, but without hop qualities.
