COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

First thoughts...nice beer. Faint citrus coming from the creamy 1/2 inch head. Maybe a bit earthy if that makes any sense. Pours a hazy orange/brown amalgamation.More of an English style IPA as opposed to American as their is a strong malt presence too. Definitely worth trying.

Good head and lacing. Dark copper in colour. Very balanced taste with a malt centre with bitter finish with citrus. A beginners IPA.

12oz bottle, served in a pint glass with dinner. Good IPA, a little bit light in body.

BreWedge (258) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle sample @ The Brew Table Ottawa. Pours a clear but dark gold with a huge off-white head. Aromas were fairly mild with woody malts dominant. Tastes are roasty malts, wood, and subtle hop bitterness. Heavy carbonation, medium body, and a short mildly bitter finish. This came off as more of an ESB than an IPA for me but it was still pleasant.

A decent ipa all though on the weaker side pours a nice yellow amber. Taste is agreeable boot an over powering ipa which is what I normally enjoy but is very drinkable.

Medium hazy orange amber with a small sudsy off white head. Smells a thousand years old. Carboard, paper, dusty yeast. Welcome to my sink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

with all the IPAs these days busting with hoppiness, this was a welcome relief. not too heavy on the hops, but still a good overall taste. good beer for a hot summer afternoon.

NeuroPliny (91) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 29, 2013
Poured from the tap into a tasting glass at The Woods Alehouse in Saskatoon. Clear dark brown with a generous tan head that lingers leaving rich lacing. Aroma is dark malts and subtle pine resin. Flavour is nicely balanced barley, malts, and mild hops. This is a well balanced IPA with a distinct character that rebels against the in-your-face boldness if the classic California IPA (which I love). Still, this is an easy drinking distinctly Saskatchewan IPA.

bulldogops (1028) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle, 5.4%. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, Cascade grapefruit, citrusy, toasted malt. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and roast malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious.

Not much on the aroma. Really very little going on to talk about. Just a bit of grapefruit in it. Not much in the taste either. Palate is fine but a boring beer. Having on tap. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ok. Pours cloudy orange with some head and lacing. Some aroma of hops but heavier on the malt side. Slick consistency. Taste is medium bitter with some booze. Leaves a bit dry and tangy as well. Bottle at Saving Gigi.
