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.

A good everyday beer. In my mind, closer to an APA than an IPA, not very powerful in bitterness, but very well balance. Because it’s a McAuslan, the price is more affordable making it a very good "fridge" beer. Well done.

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.

Un nez qui n'annonce pas une IPA, mais c'est plutôt une odeur de caramel et malt qui ressort. En bouche, c'est sucré caramélisé, mais pas très houblonné. La finale est enrobante, sucrée et légèrement âpre. J'aime bcp mieux la double ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

manuelMTL (107) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2014
Pours a clear dark yellow with a thin white head. Nose is buttery and slightly floral. Taste is pretty flat for an IPA. Butter flavors with a light hoppy bitterness. A touch of floral hops. There are some stale flavors turning the taste a bit down. Drinkable but more on the boring side of IPAs.

Reimer96 (1273) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 13, 2014
Pours a clear golden copper with a small white head. Aroma of pine, caramel and sweet pale malts. Taste is sweet pale malts, caramel, pine and light resin with a smooth bitterness. Balance is towards malts and this is a bit too sweet for an ipa. An addition of hops would make this a good base for a double.

On tap at bent elbow. Moderately bitter and floral IPA with a medium malt backbone. Pretty good, wish it was on cask.

473 ml can. Pours a clear amber with moderate head. Aromas of pine and candied grapefruit, toasted malts and rubber. Flavors of sweet malts, toffee, and pine. Bitter finish. Nice enough but pretty standard stuff.
