COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bierdimpfe (518) - 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.

Arcanor (250) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2016 341ml bottle, best before 2016-12-06 (6 months ? Yeah, right !!!). Pour golden with a small foam of big bubbles that leave my sight pretty fast. Aroma of butter (diacetyl) and notes of malt. This beer is probably 20 days old and I dont smell nether taste hops. Light body, oily and average carbonation. Bitterness is lower then his brother Session IPA. The long waiting for the resin taste is not coming. Buttery malt from start to finish.

UneXpecT (8) - Montreal, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 9, 2016 does not count
473ml Can. A good example of a simple IPA. Nothing too fancy but nothing done wrong. Beautiful golden color with a nice carbonation. Bitterness is well balanced and carry on at the end but not too much. Small hint of grapefruit,

UXO (1583) - CANADA - MAY 15, 2016
Appearance: clear pale amber with two fingers of loose ivory head, short retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: generalized fruity esters (stone fruit, apples and pears, some citrus), caramel malt, floral and earthy. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium somewhat creamy body, moderate carbonation, slightly sticky and lingering bitter finish. (4/5) Fairly straightforward English-style IPA, with fruity tones and caramel malt followed by a lingering moderately bitter finish. A solid example of the style, if not all that interesting. (Which, if Im honest, is probably a key element of the style, right?) Id place this somewhere in the middle of the pack as far as St-Ambroise offerings go - better than their Framboise and Pumpkin, not as good as their Barleywine or Stout. (13/20)

fhoublon (461) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
Bouteille de 341ml. Dguste le 5 juillet 2015 (shaker). Bire ambre limpide. Col mince, beige crme, persistant. Trs effervescente, bulles moyennes. Odeur de miel et de houblon (amertume). Douce, assez sucre, assez amre. Saveur de pamplemousse. Rafrachissante, se boit bien. Amertume tranche juste assez, nest pas gnante.

superspak (4857) - Michigan, USA - APR 5, 2016
16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 4/21/2015. Pours lightly hazy orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, plum, melon, light pepper, pine, caramel, honey, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/earthy hops, fruity yeast, and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, plum, melon, light pepper, pine, caramel, honey, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, pear, apple, plum, melon, pepper, pine, caramel, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops, fruity yeast, and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice English IPA. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops, fruity yeast, and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
