Purchased at the LCBO for $2.85 473ml can. Served at 5deg C in a draught glass

A- Very good. Pours nicely with a good 2" head that thins to a film within a minute or two, as expected from an IPA. Unusually brown, must be the rye.

S- Pretty good. Hint of coriander.

T- Very good. Touch bitter as expected again from an IPA.

M- Dry and tart. Enough said

O- Very good. Will buy again. A bit on the heavy side but very good.

Food Pairing

This nice example of an IPA went well with... Chicken balls and fried rice.

Enjoy

Can: Poured a light clear amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and limited lacing. Aroma of light piney hoppy notes with light spicy rye notes. Taste is also dominated by light piney hoppy notes with dry rye note with light grainy notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. OK but there is really nothing memorable here.

A: Hazy copper with some carbonation, 2 fingers of creamy beige head. Good lacing.

S: Malty, orange, a little pine.

T: Heavy on the pine, hot pepper, malt back bone, dry orange citrus taste, white grapefruit bitterness, doughy malt comes in again. Light fruitiness.

M: Medium, somewhat resinous body, medium carbonation, dry finish.

O: Really delicious rye beer. I really like this one, and it stands up to the name. Very much one I would have when in the mood. Dry and somewhat warming, would be best in the Fall when this is supposedly released. However I got it in spring, so I am glad it was still around to grab this year.

Tall can from the Ottawa LCBO for $2.90

Appearance - Brown colour with an average size frothy beige coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some amazing lacing on the sides of the glass. The head lasted for close to 5 minutes before it began to dissipate.

Smell - Malts, caramel, light hops

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste caramel and malts mixed with light hops. There is also some roasted/toasted notes, a touch of citrus, and some rye

Overall - A decent offering I suppose. For some reason I was expecting something more along the lines of the Camerons RPA, which has some great fruity/juicy/hoppy flavours. This beer is more on the malty side but does manage to showcase the rye.

473 ml can purchased from LCBO the other day. Served cold into the pint glass. have not seen in this in stores before and given the abundance of Ontario reviews in the past few days, this is probably a new beer.

Appearance - Hazy brown molasses color. Nice finger and a bit of creamy voluminous white head. Tons of bubbles are apparent and nice orange hues in the beer as well. Ok head retention and moderate lacing.

Smell - Rye aromas. Not a ton else, but some generic grainy beer smells. Obviously malts based and perhaps a dabbling of other grains. As the beer warms a bit the roasted characteristics come more into play.

Taste - Quite bitter, rye based. Rather earthy as well but in a pleasant manner (to my tastes, i.e. it doesn't overwhelm) and this happens more towards the conclusion of any given sip.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation, creamy feel with a dry finish.

Overall - While I have not tried very many rye beers at all, I can already tell with some certainty that it's not my cup of tea. However, I think that this does a pretty good job within the style and tastes pretty decent to boot, so as far as rye beers go this is one I would recommend if you feel the need to drink rye beers or have a particular hankering for the style.
