Notes/Commercial Description:
A generously hopped IPA, balanced by a diabolical blend of rich specialty malts and pure mountain water. A wicked ale that leaves you lusting for more.

A: Dark amber liquid with minimal white head.

S: Non existent hops, only clean yeast.

T: Lemon, buttery, caramel and toffee.

M: Medium viscosity and carbonation.

O: With the heavy amount of C-120 malt, this would make a good ESB, but as an IPA its lacking. Mt. Begbie should just rebrand this recipe as their ESB.

Dark amber colored brew with nice lasting foamy ice colored head. Lacing is grim. Good clarity.

Mild aroma. Fairly medicinal. Chamomile, floral, buttery.

Kinda uninspired flavors. Easy drinker, smooth, very mild flavors, next to zero bitterness or sweetness. Missing bitterness. Carbonation is medium prickly and nice. Flavors are kinda weak, bland pine, sugary, heavy caramel.

Much more of an ESB or amber than IPA. Step 'yo game up Canada!! Can't recommend.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Clear copper with a good amount of head and good retention.
S: Citrus, tropical fruit
T: This beer doesn’t quite have the bitter bite I would expect of an IPA, but it does have a decent hop profile - I'm mainly picking up pine and citrus.
F: A bit weak.
O: A good beer, but not the best West Coast IPA I’ve had.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A : clean dark copper pour, 1/2 finger of milky white head which dissipated quickly leaving decent blotchy lace

S : moderately hoppy, somewhat dank pine, some citrus, toasted bread, overall pretty mild aroma

T : follows the nose but much more pronounced taste, strong hops to start followed by moderate malt, oatmeal, small hint of chocolate, somewhat sweet near the end into a mild bitter finish

M : medium bodied, high carbonation, pretty oily and lubricating, goes back easy

O : The aroma was a bit weak on this one but the flavors, the appearance and mouth feel are all very good and well balanced. This is really easy to drink and enjoyable, i will be having this again
