COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Sask89 (418) - Regina, Saskatchewan, - JUL 25, 2012
Pours a fairly clear brownish amber colour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma has a lot of caramel and toffee with some toasted malt and light hop scents. Taste is not really sweet but is consistent with mild-above average bitterness. Medium body, creamy mouth feel, average carbonation. A serviceable IPA, but nothing amazing.

Hazed orange amber with a decent light beige covering that retains well. Nose is juicy hops, straw, bitter orange, tangerine. Taste comprises earthy hops, orange pith, chalky mineral notes, light grapefruit, orange squash.

Very dark amber pour with a foamy head. Aroma is malty and funky. Not very hoppy or anything but still refreshing.

Masterkush7 (507) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
Unclear dark copper, big lasting rocky off white head, definitive storied lacing. Piney citrus hoppy aroma. Big resiny hop taste backed by sweet caramel malts, some citrus. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Bitter dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thorongil2 (1239) - , 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 (842) - 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.

66cl Bottle, thanks H&T! Clear copper/amber colour, white head. Aroma of malts, some caramel, light hops. Flavour is medium-sweet, malty, some caramel, light bitter fruity hoppy finish, a bit floral. Light-bodied. ’Eh..

TheJester (1874) - 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.

bunget (552) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2013
341ml bottle. Slightly hazy copper body, small white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma: sweet caramel, floral hops, citrus candy, peaches. Taste: moderate herbal hops, sweet caramel malts, fruity and citrusy.

bdettweiler (57) - KITCHENER, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2013
Pours a clear, dark amber, almost copper colour with thin off-white head. Sweet caramel and toffee malts with floral and citrus hops. Medium bodied with light carbonation, the taste is too heavy on the malts at first, but with a sudden transition to a dry, hoppy bitterness for the finish with a brief balance in the middle. Meh.
