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!

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 (613) - 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.

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.

Mora2000 (5664) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle at thirdeye11’s birthday party. Orange amber color with a white head. This is a very balanced IPA. I get a lot of biscuit malt, as well as some nice orange and pine notes from the hops. Not bad.

January 19, 2013 - bottle shared by BVery. Brownish orange pour with head that lasted. Nice balance of hops and malt in aroma and taste. Not expecting much from this one, but it was solid.

Bomber - thanks Andrew! Nice dense orange pour with a nice frothy white head. Good full palate, nice balanced hop profile. Very solid brew.

andrewturba (962) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 7, 2013
Pours a clear amber colour with some small white head (doesn’t last too long) with some nice lacing. Aromas of pine, citrus, some sweet malty notes, mellow but quite appealing. Flavours of sweet grapefruit and light piney notes, bitterness is mild, good malt profile. Very session-able IPA!

Reimer96 (1197) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 7, 2013
Pours a clear orangish copper with a small off white ring that leaves some lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine & some sweet pale malts. Taste is citrus, grass and a hint of sweetness. Nice smooth ipa that I’d use to get people into the style.
