COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To admit that the brewer at Half Pints is a bit of a hophead is an understatement. This India Pale Ale is unabashedly hoppy, not only from the Amarillo hops we add to the brew kettle, but also from the northwest U.S. variety called Cascade that we add directly to the final tank. A firm toasted malt presence forms the background for all of these hops, and we're confident our Little Scrapper IPA could take other so-called IPA's to the mat if called upon to do so. Try it with a curry or a basket of beer battered fish & chips. Serve in a glass at 8 degrees celcius. Unpasturized.

Une bire cuivre qui ne mousse pas. Un nez malt avec une touche de levure et de houblon amre. Une bouche en malt avec une finale piquante. Peu dire ou redire de cette IPA.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2013 lots going on here - you know you are drinking a serious IPA with the first sip, a touch of carmel, nice hops, a bit of a bite, average head, not too much alcohol, surprisingly rich mouth feel

Finally, my first beer from Manitoba. Bottle courtesy of toffsbury. Pours hazy amber with nearly no head. Aroma of raisins and citrus fruits. Slightly fruity taste, with some spice, pine, and a dry bitter finish. Good enough IPA to make me willing to try other stuff from these guys, if I ever get the chance.

341 ml. Une IPA orange et un col qui frtille doucement. Quelques pointes de mousse sont visibles ici et l. Le nez est doux avec des agrumes, du miel, des notes de conifre, des pommes et du caramel. Mes papilles dcouvrent des sucres montes tout prs du vin dorge avec des houblons aromatiques et peu amers. En bouche, le liquide a un corps de bonne dimension. La texture est huileuse et le ptillement est normalement ajust. En finale, des cultivars aux accents terreux et pics viennent me chatouiller la langue. Thanks Luke!

This is pretty solid. Pours orange, clear, with lit miter head and a finger or so of clumpy, frothy lacing. Nose is a bit quiet, some breakfast tea. Notes of cereal, some light fruit, lots of piney bitterness. Taste is light sweet medium/heavy bitter. Full ish body with lots of carbonation and a pretty long bitter finish.

kathouse (1741) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - MAY 6, 2014
The Amarillo hops give the aroma a tropical note which is not cancelled out by the citrus Cascade. Rather, the citrus comes through in the flavor. Bready malts carry the weight and the beer finishes towards the dry side. I wouldnt go out of my way for this but not bad. Thanks cards04!

Pretty good IPA with lots of bite. Getting mostly pine and resin bitterness from the hops. Something for hop heads who feel like an ibu punch in the mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at Community (old Brewsters in Castledowns), 6%. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, mlid citrusy, but mostly piney, and earthy. Taste is more of the same, dry hops (resinous, piney stickyness) and toasted bread dough malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Definitely comes off as a british ipa despite the northwest hops (Cascade, Amarillo) - not a ton of grapefruit on the nose or palate- but the finish isnt overly dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious.

Mme si ce nest pas des plus flamboyants, cest dor et voile et la mousse nest quun mince voile. Une dentelle fait partie du tableau. Est-elle brasse depuis longtemps? Parce que a ne sent pas trs fort. Le malt et le caramel principalement, avec un lger parfum dagrumes. Le got lui, est assez puissant. Une belle amertume tranchante qui se tient du ct des agrumes. Larrire-got est des plus amers. De belles notes minrales tout au long de la dgustation sont prsentes. Une IPA gnrique. (1056-130414)

Modest head and lighter lager body with a bit of decent fogginess. Aroma of hops with plenty of bread. Flavour is nice dry hops with a sour finish. A good, balanced IPA with a hint of complexity.
