3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Actually a phenomenal IPA. The pour is dark orange with amber notes and a thick foamy white head. The head dissapates into almost nothing. The aroma is hop forward with a ton of grapefruit and citrus fruity notes. A moderate caramel and biscuity malt is also apparent in the nose. The middle is sweet and malty with light grapefruit fruity taste. Body is medium with no carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. The finish is moderately bitter (definately not huge hop bomb) with a large grapefruit hop. Overall, a really nice IPA and a bit of a surprise from Mount Begbie.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It pours a deep amber color with a 1 finger white head that vanishes to a thin cap. It has a medium amount of carb and some real fine lacing.
The aroma is dominated by citrus notes and I want to say even a little pine.
The flavor is bang on, I am getting carmel, floral and a vast amount of pine notes from the hoppers. It is nice and well balanced and nothing that is too over powering. The alcohol is so hidden in the beer
It finishes with a touch dry and a lingering bitterness, it just makes you want to reach back for more. I have to confess that it reminds me of 90min by Dogfish head. I think by far the best beer I have tried from this group.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml brown bottle. Dark gold-orange in colour. Displays a nice creamy, full looking off white head. Nice clinging lace. Sweet orange aroma with some spicy pine and grapefruit notes. Has a bit of candy sweetness up front, but has decent malts and juicy orange notes. Soft lingering graefruit-like bitterness, dryish finish, fairly clean. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Decent tasting, tamer and less intense than a lot of IPAs on the shelf in Alberta right now but very drinkable and definately the direction Mt Begbie should head in.

Bottle, 22oz, thx to Enjoyit. A clear, amber beer with a small, off-white head. Pleasant aroma with some lemon peel and a good dash or tropical fruits. Not much on the malty side. The flavor has some bitterness, but is a bit one-tracked on the lemon-peel side. Grapefruit notes and a grassy touch too. Full-bodied and dry, a bit low on carbonation. A decent one, but lacks on most things. 110129

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bottle. Pours a slightly hazxy reddish amber with a thin but lasting white head. Floral aroma. Tastes of hops - some citrus, spruce, with a warming malt sweet undertone. Finishes with a citrus/grass bitter hop taste. Very very good...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle. Poured hazy amber with a lasting egg-white head. Strong citrus-pine aroma. Full crisp tart mouthfeel. Flavours of grapefruit, caramel malts, and a bitter resiny floral hoppiness. Medium hopped beer and quite refreshing, the alcohol is perfectly hidden inside this beer but delivers a nice warming feeling. My suggestions...drink this beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep amber-golden pour with a thick, sticky white head. The nose is a little bit of orange marmalade and some light spiciness as well. Fairly light bodied with a little bit of pale malt sweetness. There is a bit of orange flavour with a very light soft hoppiness. Minerally bitterness on the finish. It’s a simple IPA - more pale ale really.
