This is a typical offering from Canadas large commercial breweries. The taste is so pedestrian that it leaves one wondering whether the breweries use one big vat and simply bottle and label with their own product. It all tastes the same! Traditional IPAs are distinctive in the flavour profile. They have a rich matly taste, balanced by a high hop aroma. A good example of the style is Fullers Bengal Lancer. Keiths has none of the profile characteristics. The malt is undetectable and there is NO hop aroma. How it can call itself an IPA is beyond me. The recipe for Keiths is the following: 1. Put a bucket behind a horse, 2. Add yeast.

Draft, one of my go to beers for vast quantity of consuming. Readily available which makes it easy but very simple. Just beer, which sometimes is all you need.

Pour on tap, clear golden pour, thin white head, aroma brought notes of grass, bread, slight skunky notes, hints of grain. Taste was a mix of grass, grain, skunky mineral notes, finishing slightly dry.

RobertDale (6031) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 18, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Comes a pale gold with an average white head. Aroma and taste of malt, grain, and a bit of citrus. Bartender related that this IPA has around 14 IBUs. Interesting.

berkshirejohn (6279) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2016
On tap at Halifax Airport, NS. Pale, frothy and almost tasteless - the Canadian equivalent of Greene King IPA - that is, an IPA by name only.

deyholla (10793) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2016
On tap. Pours a clear light gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of earthy grains, straw and a hint of grass. Flavor is similar with lots of grains and hay with some straw supporting.

This is ok but not as good as Moosehead from out east. Typical commercially produced Canadian beer. I would call it a lager.

I wouldnt call it an India Pale.... more like a blond ale from the school of bad mass produced Canadian beer from the 80s/90s

One of my first IPA's. I've been drinking this for years in Canada, before IPA became popular. Have had this from cans and on tap but this time it was a tall boy in Aurora. Easier to drink than many of today's popular IPA. At 5% ABV this beer is definitely sessionable. A little sweet and malty but good hops too. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
