An ultra-premium all-malt classic English-style India Pale Ale at 6.5% alc./vol. Enticing deep gold colour. Nutty malt aromatic nuances with spicy, grassy and fruity hop aromas achieved by dry hopping. Spicy, grassy and fruity hop flavours are combined with an assertive bitterness and mellow smooth malt flavour. Typical yeast-derived ale fruitiness and warming alcohol make this India Pale Ale a true-to-style classic. Enjoy with mulligatawny soup, roast beef, meat pies and stews, cajun fish, curry dishes and spicy foods, haggis, and strong cheddar and blue cheeses.

Bendrixian (1513) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
Clear amber colour. Muted aroma with some english malty, earthyness and some floral hops. Medium to light body, some bitterness with a malty backbone. drinks more like a bitter but it is okay English IPA, just very boring.

Ferris (13485) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle - Light grassy notes. Clear gold with a small white head. Earthy hops and a light bitterness. Very English in style and quite drinkable.

deepeary (405) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2014 341 ml bottle from the brewery. Pours clear and golden, white head with small bubbles. Well carbonated. Mostly bready, caramel candied sugar and slightly, roasty malt on the nose, some spicy hops. Pretty much the same for the taste, and I get a bit of booze. Nice English IPA.

What gets me with this one is the caramel malts hides most of the hops. Very faint hops at the end, came out more as the beer warmed up. Not a big fan of the bready malts, but but bought a 12 pack so whats a guy to do?

sudomorph (1111) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2014 341ml bottle. Pours a clear deep golden colour with a half finger, white head that fades to nearly nothing fast. Aroma has slight bready/biscuit notes with faint hops to balance it out. Taste is slightly bitter with notes of biscuit and English hops. Slightly fruity and metalic with a semi-dry finish and drawn out, bitter aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Overall not bad but not my style. I prefer a more West coast style IPA to a traditional English style. Worth a try if you enjoy the style. Cheers!

Lonick (1774) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Pours amber and clear, slight sweetness to the nose , the hops are not overpowering, slightly nutty on the nose. Tastes almost like a session beer and then you see that its 6.5% it really hides it well.

solidfunk (8035) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Pretty decent malt profile here but not much hops. Pours clear dark amber with fizzy head, some lacing. Finishes with light bitterness. Has some booze with the caremelized malt. Soft carbonation. Bottle from brewery.

Nerdbrew (1) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2012 does not count
This is one of the few IPAs that are close to 7% in my local beer store. I find that odd that a lot of ales are called IPA but are only 5%. Over all a very enjoyable beer. Second best IPA that Ive tried to date. Great flavour with a nice hoppy taste. Reminds me slightly of Flying Monkeys Hoptical Illusion. Although the hop taste in that beer is significantly more noticeable.

Metalchopz (3196) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 15, 2012
Originally rated May 2004. Golden orange in colour, this IPA with a medium head leaves a foamy lacing. Lightly carbonated, I can smell hints of citrus (specially oranges). It has a medium bitter taste to it but with a smooth finish. The strong alcohol content is not unpleasant, but hits the right spot in your head. Better then Keiths for a Canadian IPA.
