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!

Lubiere (10700) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2014
A hazed murky amber ipa with a thin off white head. In aroma, maderized biscuit malt with smooth floral hops, resinous character, doughy notes, nice. In mouth, a crisp biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, grapefruit pulp, à bit tired but still solid. Bottle from LCBO, about 3 years old.

UXO (609) - CANADA - APR 19, 2014
Pours a clear copper with one finger of white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, light lacing. Nose is piney hops, with a little malt backing. Taste delivers exactly what the nose promises. Mouth feel is medium-bodied, with a lingering bitter hop finish. It might be a nasty habit, but it’s my kind of nasty habit.

MunBro (639) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - APR 15, 2014
Aroma slightly malty and hoppy. Pours a rich copper color with a quick fading head. Taste is a bit funky. Not a great IPA but not the worst I have had either.

Cavie (3898) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle courtesy Fratto. Pours a clear orange red color with a light bubbly head. Aroma is sweet hops, a nice citrusy note with hops. Flavor is dry, hoppy sweet, sugary and candy. Wow this is actually nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great beer! Hoppy aroma with fruity after taste. For those who have tasted a "Matilda Bay -Fat Yak" it is similar but sweeter but unfortunately low on head and gas. Still, Mt Begbie can do no wrong with their "strong beers".

sulawang (681) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2013
pours a nice clear copper orange with a small head and thin retention, almost no activity. Strong citrus malts and sour hops on the nose. Attack: 5/10-sweetness, light creamy Mid-palate: very sharp bitter, dryness, bitter hops, orange peel, grapefruit with pith Finish: lingering hoppy bitter, slightly watery carry. Quite sharp bitter grapefruity hops on this one. Not the most gentle of IPAs, beware.

vadie (910) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 24, 2013
Couleur ambrée foncé. Petite mousse. Goüt de caramel, malt et houblon. L’amertume est très bien équilibrée avec le malt.

A nice sudsy beer. Quite balanced with some bitter citrus and pinecone vs a smooth malt. Labeled as a ’strong beer’ but actually very approachable. I sensed a bit of dilution. A decent IPA.
