India Pale Ales were brewed in the 19th century with long sea travel in clipper ships across the equator to India in mind. In order to endure these rigours, the beers were high in alcohol and brewed with plenty of hops. The hops provided a spicy bitterness balancing the malt and maintaining the quality of the ale through the natural antibacterial properties of hops. McAuslan has brewed a classic IPA using a blend of pale and specialty malts giving the beer a New World Twist.

(Nouvelle recette - maintenant offerte en 6-pack) - Dorée, claire et limpide avec une bonne effervescence et un mince collet de mousse. Nez de houblon frais. En bouche, ce même houblon s’exprime avec puissance et laisse ses saveurs s’imprégner en post-goût. J’aurais aimé avoir encore une bouteille de l’ancienne recette (que j’avais beaucoup apprécié aussi) afin de pouvoir comparer ce qui est amélioré ou ce qui est moins bien... Somme toute, celle-ci fait très bien la job!

Nice gold with a slight orange tint, medium offwhite head. Smells resinous and hoppy. Slight hop bitterness with more malts for balance, the hop flavours themselves are grassy and resinous, medium to light bodied, juicy and refreshing, pretty nice, although I have faith McAuslan can make one with even more punch ;)

473 ml can from LCBO. 2 months old. Clear light amber colour with white head. Nose is tame, some piney-herbal hops. Taste is surprisingly good Very fresh tasting and hoppy. Juicy hop notes. Moderate bitter finish. Supremely drinkable. Well done.

473 mL Can poured into a shaker. Clear medium amber pour with a medium to tall off--white head. Caramel and pine aroma. Taste is a little sweet, but similar pine, caramel profile, some resinous bitterness too. Just a nice good IPA.

jgb9348 (4857) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Clear golden coloured body with a bit of a copper glow and a nice, four centimetre tall tan head, slightly ugly with large bubbles. Aroma of malt, hop pellets, caramel, nuts, earth, citrus and a definite german and english hop scent. Light-bodied; Strong malty flavour up front with a very subdued hop element and a very light caramel note behind. Aftertaste shows a mix of yeast and a very light hop note overtaken by very subdued malts - this shows almost exactly of an english style bitter on cask (a real ale) with very little flavours and subdued elements throughout. Overall, a decent IPA if that, that is really an EPA or a bitter, perhaps (although more alcohol, for sure), but not up to the standard of either the style or from McAuslan, itself. I sampled this sixteen ounce (473 mL) can purchased from Marche des Sauveurs in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on 20-September-2014 for CA$2,50 sampled at home back in Washington on 30-October-2014.

Cannette de 473ml d’ambrée pale. Belle apparence, limpide et belle mousse crémeuse lors du service. Au nez c’est très intéressant on retrouve l’agrume et le malt. En bouche un peu moins intéressant, on a beaucoup d’amertume et peu de notes sucré, c’est assez sec. On retrouve des notes floral en rétroolfaction. Quand meme bien

Bouteille de 341ml au Marché des Brasseurs. D’une couleur ambre/orangé, elle est recouverte d’une mousse crémeuse, blanc cassé, qui colle bien au verre et dure plus longtemps qu’une funéraille écossaise.. Au nez, c’est malt frais avec une note de houblon qui semble trop peu pour une IPA. En bouche c’est un peu pareil, malt sucré avec une pointe de houblon floral et résineux. Elle est du coté doux des IPA, mais tout de même très raffraichissante.
