thb (838) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 11, 2010
Pours a reddish-amber with thin but enduring head. Nice floral citrusy aroma. Tasty sourdough yeastiness too. Bright, lively beer. Good amount of carbonation
Long, bitter, hoppy finish.
Perfectly pleasant beer. Reasonably interesting, but unremarkable and fairly one dimensional.

bulldogops (2740) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 18, 2010
Bottle. 6%. Clear dark amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hops, roasted malt, and is quite earthy. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and roast malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of caramel. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious.

3.2
Diogène (1214) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2009
341 ml bottle. Dark golden with a medium foamy off white head. Aroma is earthy with hops, sweet malt, toasted malt, metal and leather. Not as much hops aroma as expected. Flavor is earthy with caramel, toasted malt, british hops, Bitter finish Fizzy carbonation (too much for my liking of the style) medium body.

Macadem (103) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 7, 2009
Not much to say about this one other than that its disapointing. A very bland and definitely not exciting beer. It has some, and i emphasize SOME hops, but, sigh, not enough.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2009 Can’t go into detail because it’s been a while, but this isn’t a particularly exciting IPA, it’s just a good, reliable one. Very drinkable.

Brewnoser (28) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 30, 2009
Industrial Park Ale... Safe level of hopping, but lacks fruit/malt to really balance, leaving it a bit dry and bitter in the finish. Good beer, but leaves me wanting more of everything.

3.3
manuchampions (1256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 29, 2009
6 pack bought in Canmore Alberta. What can I say...it’s a decent IPA but nothing about it lives up to the "bigger is better" Alberta mythos. The province might be new to the craft brew scene but I would have expected something a little more assertive, more ground breaking. It’s a decent IPA but really no challenger to better offerings from B.C. like Hophead and Phillips.

3.4
Grovlam (4257) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2009
341 ml bottle. Thanks to Kira for sharing. Small bubbly beige head that mostly diminished. Fair display of lacework. Clear amber color. Quite malty aroma with caramel, toasted malt and grainy nose. Over the palate came liquorish, peach, citrus and some fruity notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and dry texture. Moderated bitter and sweet flavor in balance. Smooth light dry citrus bitter finish.

Cavie (4837) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Foggy orange pour with live yeast sediment. Hoppy aroma. Fat hoppy taste upfront. Sweet hops balance out the whole taste. Finish is solid and doesn’t dry out. Very good!

3.4
Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Bottle courtesy of savvy1982. Pours copper with a white head. Smells of caramel, some tea. Tastes of earth, spice, some pepper. Decent.
