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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

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".

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.
