Dark red to brown pour... white head that disappears quickly. Beautiful aroma that really makes this a true IPA. Taste is bitter enough to call it an IPA, a tad watery, nothing too significant though. Absolutely no complaints about this IPA, it’s nicely bitter, and it’s what you expect out of an IPA. Yes, there are better choices around, but this is definitely worth a try.

A good ipa brewed close to home. A English style ipa that I like even though I’m a bigger fan of the American style. A good Carmel malt background balances out this ipa that has a nice dark brown color. I enjoyed this brew and will again for that price

Aroma is grapefruit and caramel with some floral notes. Taste is grapefruit hop bitterness with an underlying caramel malty sweetness. A nicely balanced brew with a medium body and adequate carbonation. Not quite as nice as some of the IPA’s from our neighbors to the South, but still a satisfactory brew that deserves a taste.

A decent IPA. The bottle I had said 6% however. A nice orange-gold pour, slightly hazy. Head was thin. The aroma was corn flakes and hops. No telling that this is an IPA. The flavour is average for an IPA, crunchy malt and citrusy hops.

Pours a clear amber colour with a big sticky off white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is citrus, sweet caramel malts, and grass. Flavour is mild bitterness that lingers, resin, grapefruit, some sweet caramel and slightly metallic. Kind of a beginner ipa where the malts come out way more than most and the hops are a bit weak.

Tap @ the brewery. Not particularly pale nor hoppy, though there’s enough grapefruit and pine to make it tasty.

Pours a hazy copper with a great long staying off-white head. Aroma has a lot of cascade lemon/orange citrus with a mild amount of grassy character and a finishing note of some toasted malt. Flavor is good with a stronger grassy flavor than the nose indicated with a mild lemony citrus middle and a smooth toasty ending. Body is modest with a lot of fine carbonation lending an almost creamy feeling. Overall a very good, drink every day type of IPA.

Bouteille 1L sous le nom de "Wild Rose Industrial Park Ale" à 5,5% abv. De couleur dorée foncée et légèrement voilée. Nez de houblon résineux, légèrement citrique et herbeux (thé et herbes mouillées), moyen de caramel butterscotch, léger de fruits (agrumes sucrées) avec des notes notes de grains de malt sucrés et des traces épicées (poivre). Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture huileuse. Goût moyennement amer de houblon citrique, floral et aux notes terreuses (une amertume présente en arrière-goût toute la gorgée) avec un moyen goût fruité (agrumes, faibles notes d’abricots) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel doux avec des notes de butterscotch ainsi que des notes de grains de malt sucrées puis à mesure que la gorgée progresse le houblon reprend le dessus en affichant un caractère légèrement résineux et herbeux (thé asséchant avec des traces de menthe verte et d’herbes mouillées) jusqu’en finale. Post-goût long-moyen et un peu sec, moyennement amer de houblon moyennement résineux et citrique et légèrement herbeux avec des petites notes fruitées (zeste d’agrumes).

Pours a clear orangish amber with a big creamy off white head. Big Aroma of citrus and grassy hops with some caramel and malts. Taste has some malts, bread and some bitterness. The malt to bitterness isn?t balanced very well. Overall it?s an ipa I’d give to someone to get them into the style. The smell is far better than the taste.
