Mad & Noisy is a new small batch series from Creemore Springs Brewery, named after the two rivers that merge and flow through the village of Creemore. The first release is Hops & Bolts India Pale Lager, a Czech twist on an English IPA. Hops & Bolts IPL is a bit lighter than an IPA, but a bit fuller than your golden lager, featuring a pithy bitterness that blends to a silky balancing malt sweetness. In the glass, you’ll see a slight unfiltered haze which settles to a bright orange-cedar colour and a dense, lingering off-white head. The big hoppy aroma features a blend of light tropical fruits and bold piney and grassy notes.

473 ml can. Pours clear orange amber colour. Off white nice head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit and grassy hop, Flavor is fruity, peppery with hints of caramel malt. Medium carbonation. An enjoyable lager

Sample from a flight of 4 at Toronto airport. Hazy brown, negligible head. Grapefruit and peach aroma. Typical citrus grapefruit rind and tropical fruit sweetness against a caramel background. Decent IPA: Perhaps not the best beer I ever drank at an airport, (that would be a bottle of Wiestephaner in Austria), but possibly the best draft.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2017 They had me at the word ’Mad’ and this hoppy little IPA didn’t disappoint! Very tasty.

Pours a huge foamy off-white head and has an amber/coppery appearance. Nice dirty lacing. More malty than hoppy aromas or so it seems. Malty flavours of the toasty and nutty variety. Hops are mainly earthy hops with some notes of floral hops. Seems like malts are taking over here. A bit of an orangey taste in the finish. Smooth mild and creamy mouthfeel. Slightly puckering sensation. Not too bad but really nothing too exciting or innovative.

Tap @Beerhive, Toronto-Pearson Airport. Large head, golden/amber colour, hazy. Light aroma of hops, grapefruit peel, citrus. Bitter taste, long finish, light body, average carbonation. Nicely refreshing before a flight.

Daytona00 (162) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2017
341 ml bottle - Red color with medium head. Taste is sweet, not strong. Remind me the taste of Rickards Red. Not bad not great.

jonas (7611) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 27, 2017
backlog rating from spring 2015. Cloudy dark Amber, offwhite creamy head. Light fruity base, ok grassy hops. Medium mellow body. Light fermented grass aftertaste.

omhper (25249) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2017
Canned at Bert’s, Canadian Tire Center, Ottawa. Clear amber, rich firm head. Aroma of salty caramel. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Sheer resin. Perhaps some buttery caramel, then just resin. Inky resiny finish. Vile. Do the people producing this beer actually drink beer themselves??

the sauger (90) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 29, 2017
Bouteille de 625 ml. Couleur cuivrée trouble avec un moyen col blanc. Arôme de malt, de sirop et d’houblon. Le goût est celui du malt, des céréales grillées, du miel et du houblon. L’amertume élévée fait presque penser à une IPA.

rosenbergh (11610) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2016
473 ml can. (LCBO) Sault Ste Marie, ON.
Cloudy golden color with a small white head. Mild citrusy hops, mild bitterness and dryish malt in the aroma. The flavor is citrusy and piney hops, mild sweetness, mild bitterness and dry malt.

Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 9, 2016
Hazy dark gold color with moderate activity. Creamy beige 3 finger island head, lasting around 10 minutes, with good leggings. Flavors of biscuits, caramel, orange, pineapple, lemon, roasted grains, herbal spices. Sugary yet overwhelmed by bitterness. Oily, almost full body, with moderate carbonation. Strong strength finish, lingering astringent grassy and piney hops, with caramel and tropical fruits. Feels more like an IPA. The smell is faint and the taste is decent, but nothing amazing. Okay freshness, but a little dull. A little too strong for the lack of flavors. Overall the quality is pretty average for this craft.
