McAuslan presents its New World take on the classic IPAs of the 19th-century England. In those days, the beers was brewed extra-strong and generously hopped to help it survive the long journey to India. Inspired by that history and todays blod American IPAs, weve married Cascade and Chinook hops with a subtle blend of malts -anyone who appreciates strong ale will love it. Hop bitterness and malt smoothness: its a journey your taste buds will enjoy time and again.

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

Tranquillity (2210) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2017
Canned. Almost clear orange body, big off white head. The aroma is peach, apples and malt. The taste is sweet and balanced, not overly bitter. Nice one!

AleRider78 (974) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2016
Pours a very large amount of foamy creamy white head and has a light amber appearance. Some dirty smudgy lacing. Somewhate excessive carbonation. Aromas of floral and citrus hops dominate. Flavours are also of the citrus hops variety. Has some nice bitterness to it. Hints of lemon, lime, some spices are well balanced within, not too offensive. Some grainy and toasty malt flavours also in the mix. Mouthfeel has a prickly warming sensation. Orange like taste in the finish. Pretty good stuff and quite affordable.

ljthiessen (1271) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 13, 2016
Bottle. Clear golden amber pour with a small white head. Not a bad aroma or flavour, but a pretty plain and unremarkable IPA. Medium body, some spruce and resinous hop notes. Starts pretty balanced, but some lingering metallic bitterness in the finish.

Bierdimpfe (633) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 1, 2016
Slightly hazy amber color with a strong amount of activity. Creamy beige 2 finger head, lasting around 10 to 15 minutes, with some very good legs. Smell of caramel biscuit and citrus. Flavors of orange, lemon, caramel, burnt sugar, grains, pine, ester, herbal spices. Grassy and piney hops with a roasted malt breadiness. Balanced mix of all flavors, but a little faint. Light body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Light to medium strength finish of moderate length, ending with a strong piney tongue coat, a little hoppy and malty. Overall this is a decent craft offering good flavors that are a little too faint, and a weak body and smell. Lacking some freshness being a little flat with a boozy and diacetyl feel. Although well balanced, it has almost no real personality.

Cartoonkhaki (1257) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2016
Orangy hue with off white head. Hoppy malty sweet aroma. Light palate but the balance is okay. the flavour easily matches the aroma. This beer is not all that distinct to be memorable and is a easy drink.
