A prototype IPA which features a huge malt profile from Maris Otter malt as a backbone, and massive amounts of Cascade & Amarillo hops. The hop flavour and aroma are huge as well as the hop bite. This is not a beer for those afraid of character.

Orange-amber in colour with a large lingering and rather creamy off-white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is sugary sweet, light citrus hops, some oranges and soap. The flavour is of tropical fruits, moderate bitterness, some earthy notes, dough, light caramel malt sweetness. Moderately bitter mouthfeel, medium/light body, high carbonation. Finishes medium length and the carbonation picks up.

A highly carbonated IPA. It was pretty drinkable although not overly flavourful.

341ml bottle obtained in a trade with piscator34, thanks Kris.
Opened on August 10, 2008.
No date.

pivnizub (9159) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2009
Bottle (courtesy of joss!): A bit hazy, copper coloured, huge persistent beige head; very aromatic, a bit perfumed, hoppy nose with a solid caramelly background and hidden fruity traces; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, creamy MF, medium bodied; sourish sweetish-fruity finish with a hoppy "tail". Very drinkable, not too perfect.........

Narnad (1485) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Pours a great golden in color with very little head and very fine, low carbonation. Aroma is so heavy of Marris Otter that it’s really hard to smell anything else. The flavor starts off with a very small amount of citrus/sweet hops flavor but then moves into a very pungent almost an ashy/smokey Maris malt punch. The beer is pretty good overall but not what I would typically classify as an IPA.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a thin white head. Aroma of fruity hops with sweetness. The flavor is very sweet and the hops provide a fruity flavor. The body is light with a creamy texture and gentle carbonation. I really like this brewery, but I was kind of disapointed by this one.

JorisPPattyn (8202) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2008
Huge dense head, between cream--colour and mango over reddish-brown/amber beer. Very nice nose of exotic fruit, hops with touches of mango, lytchee, grapefruit. Some cookey malts playing hide-and-seek behind. Hoppy, sourish-bitterish taste, just overclashing a cakey sweet-matly underbuild. Less fruity than the nose, if still quite nice. Grapey, bitter(ish) oranges, some lytchee left. On the reverse side of the coin, the finish is metallic-bitter, much more crude. Not really full-bodied, bit mineral water quality. The nose is fantastic. The rest OK to more than OK. Danke, joss

probstblueribbon (3182) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2008
355 ml bottle from Sherbrooke Liquor (Edmonton), served cold in a wine glass.

App.: Slightly hazy amber, fair off-white foam with a green tinge. Aroma: Lots of juicy orange notes, floral honey, some burnt sugar and toffee, some cherry and apricot fruitiness, an earthy mustiness, some melon and wood, there’s another aroma in there that I’m having difficulty putting describing...like green tea? Palate: Medium body, fairly full effervescence that is fairly soft with some sharp bubbles. Flav.: More of the orange-citrus that leans towards lemon, a bit of floral honey, some pine and resinous hops, a bit of the burnt sugar and toffee, some melon, that ambiguous green tea note carries into the flavour; off-dry with a fairly good bitter hit that sticks around a bit.

An interesting blend of flavours and aromas. I don’t love it, but I find it enjoyable.

CapnCascade (116) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 22, 2008
Pours clear copper with dense white head that has moderate retention. Slightly floral and quite malty on the nose, hint of yeast, generally fairly subtle aroma. Flavor is quite dry and leafy, perhaps a touch astringent but not distractingly so. Notes of apples or other sweet fruit appear periodically, and the finish is all hops. Decent body with good carbonation. Overall not a bad effort, quite drinkable. I’d like to try more of these guys’ offerings.

Crit (3471) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2008
Bottle at Alibi room. Wow, I hope this isn’t the best beer from this brewery, if so, I feel sorry for you people in Saskatoon. Deep gold, short lived white head. Musty hop nose. Lightly metallic medium hop profile, with a lasting but stale hop finish

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2008
Bright, rich, chewy and toasty malts with floral and citrus hops in the nose. Hazy copper coloured body is topped by a generous white head that recedes to a lasting cover with some lacing. Hops dominate in both flavour and bitterness - citrus, earthy and floral notes and fairly pronounced bitterness. Aftertaste features some doughy and caramel malt character. Medium-light body is quite dry with very strong carbonation that is just a bit too harsh against the tongue. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle (Brewery Creek, May-08).
