Russell IP’eh!. Quirky name - serious taste!
World Beer Cup Bronze Medal 2010.
This classic English-style India Pale Ale is well-balanced with exceptional drinkability. Generously hopped with Pacific Northwest Cascade and Willamette hops and finished with dry hopping of cascade flowers. Caramel and toffee notes, from speciality English malts, anchor the bitterness and deliver a well-balanced finish. Russell IP’eh! is part of the Russell Brewmaster Series which is a succession of small batch beers crafted for an unconventional beer drinker. Russell Brewing has been brewing premium craft beer since 1995. Our beer is 100% natural and has no preservatives. We don’t pasteurize which means we don’t kill the taste - you drink it the way it is brewed. Fanatical about beer, we believe that the passion and quality that goes into creating Russell beer comes through in the taste. Enjoy!

thorongil2 (1388) - , Ontario, CANADA - JAN 6, 2014
(bottle) hazy amber colour with a small tan head; aroma of cider; weird flavour - almost like it was not fermented properly; could be a bad bottle, I dont think it was sealed properly

Tessic (906) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2013
This IPA poured a medium amber colour with a quickly dissipating, bright white head. Scents include pineapple, spruce and grassy hops, sweet malts and little cereal. First sip was smooth with a medium bitterness and lots of hop flavours. Light to medium body with quite a lingering hop flavor on the palate.

TheJester (1958) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2013
341 mL bottle. Hazy brown with not much head, despite some foaming upon opening. Smells likea homebrew with the fermentation not quite complete. A little hop flavour and bitterness, but not enough, and too sweet. Maybe the fermentation wasn’t finished. Disappointing.
