COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our India Pale Ale is a copper-coloured, medium-bodied ale with a distinctive hop aroma. It is brewed in strict adherence to the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516. Okanagan Spring Brewery's IPA is a tribute to the great IPA's brewed in the 1800's for shipment far across the ocean to British troops stationed in India.

Rating cause that was all that was available tonight other than Bud. Straight from the can. Not much aroma other than a biscuity cardboard. (Says a distinctive hop aroma? Hmmm.) Flavors include some light fruit and hops but its primarily a malty cardboard. A notch above an industrial.

An English style IPA, bearing little resemblance to its hoppier Canadian counterparts. On tap in Hrvati Bar (Toronto), poured a ruby colour with medium carbonation, and a thin head subsiding quickly. Subtle caramel and fruit nose and a pleasant, if somewhat thin, mouthfeel.

Not that good. Not much aroma. Some initial fruity sweetness then a mild chemical/weedy biterness.

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2011
Clear amber colour with thin white head. Stale fruity nose with slight malt hints. Mild bitter hop taste with lingering grapefruit hop finish. Hops are slightly more pronounced as it warms up.

1 pint boordevol in het Manningpark Canada. Geen enkele smaak en absoluut geen IPA.

On tap. Smell of light herbal hops and sweet malts. Brown sugar taste with a light dry finish. Good for thirst.

humulushound (242) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2009
Really....REALLY! This a pale ale? Copper color and clear. Smells like grass and grain but taste is non-compelling blend of light sweet malt and straw, hop and citrus character are after-thoughts. Not unpleasant, but thin mouthfeel. More like pale lager than ale. Not impressed.

AaronBouchard (150) - Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2009
Had in bottle , I expected this to be your typical super hopped IPA but I thought it was nice because it was mild in hops and had sweet notes on the aftertaste

RichardGretton (4240) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2009
Cask @The Sandmans Bar, Vancouver. Vibrant bronze coloured beer with a gently hopped aroma and a gently hopped and bitter flavour. Overall an average and OK beer.

Eructoblaster (2999) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2009
On tap at l’Autre Oeil (Gatineau - Aylmer). Limpid amber body with low carbonation and a thin off-white creamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar hints. Average taste is dominated by maltiness and ends with a short bittersweet finish. Fair "everyday" Ale.
