Me and my girlfriend did this rate together. pours golden/straw (very light for an IPA in Canada). Aroma is hoppy, spicy a touch of caramel with a hint of apricot. Taste is very bitter up front with a mild change to sweetness with apricot flavours present. not much of a aftertaste. the beer has a full body with a mild amount of carbonation (my gf thinks a fair amount of carbonation) There is no oiliness or unami that makes this beer curve the appetite. In my opinion a very very bitter pale ale which lacks the complexity to make it a great india pale ale.... in my gf mind a drinkable IPA for once (although she would only have one maybe two in a night). Available up at my cottage, and a good product to promote the style to more of ontario’s population. not my favourite however.

Canette de 500 ml. Arômes de houblon plutôt résineux et portant sur le pamplemousse. Robe dorée et limpide, légère dentelle et effervescence assez faible. En bouche, le houblon est bien aromatique et développe surtout des notes de pamplemousse et de conifère. Le malt présente des saveurs franches de grains, mais demeure en retrait et pas trop sucré. Finale montrant une amertume d’intensité moyenne. Une belle IPA et une agréable surprise.

355ml bottle pours a golden color with a 2 finger white head that settles slowly and leaves little lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel with mild citrus and grass. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with a moderate hop bitterness that finishes clean. Light to medium body with adequate carbonation. A pretty decent IPA with a nice balance of flavours, but not enough punch from the hops.

Finally, this makes it into Alberta!!! Pours a wonderfully clear golden amber, with a large white head quickly dying down to a blanket over the beer. Nice citric, piny hop, sweet fruit salad, aroma. Taste is a refreshing blend of lemon, orange, grapefruit & piny hops, with sweet malt to balance the bitterness. Nice carbonation and there’s a lovely effervescent wash of citrus over the tongue as it leads to a wonderful bitter, fresh finish. A nicely made Canadian IPA!

Supercan. This was my reward after a 14km hike in Charlo NB. First off, I like the re-branding that the brewery has undergone, the muskoka/adirondack chair is very cool and nostalgic for me. This pours a bright medium golden, crystal clear, with an exuberant white head that leaves a delicate lacy skein. Intensely hoppy aroma, lovely citrus and coniferous green. Sweet malt base supports a very lovely fresh quantity of hops, white grapefruit, sweet fragrant pine. A newcomer to my top 3 Canadian IPA list. Fantastic!

355ml bottle. Green hoppy aroma, some lemon and grapefruit. Centennials stand out. Pours a rich gold colour with decent amounts of head and lacing. Good bitter bite to the first sip and lots of resiny hop flavour coupled with a roof-of-the-mouth malt taste that gives it a certain earthiness. Drawn out dry, bitter finish. A solid IPA.

dandeman (739) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 26, 2012
Aromas are very hoppy with lemon and grapefruit accents. Strong and pleasant noze. Long lasting creamy head that sticks on glass. Gold color. Lightly cloudy. The attack is full grapefruit with very strong bitterness; just the way I like it. Very round and oily texture. Finish is bitter; hops are doing the job. Excellent IPA

Bottle. Aroma was bright citrusy hops, grapefuit, lemon, orange zest. Flavor was pleasantly hoppy with a good malt backbone. Lots going on in this beer. Super solid IPA. Worth checking out.

@Mondial de la Bière 2012, Montreal - slightly hazy blond beer with a little foam left; a decent flowery hoppiness; a good malt body; slightly sticky and with a good bitterness; pretty dry and long bitter hoppy finish
