look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured a 355-ml bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance - dark copper coloured beer with a thin, although lacy, foam head with various-sized bubbles.

Smell - raging malt butterscotch with obvious hop background. Outstanding bouquet.

Taste - very even taste with a solid malt center before giving way to the steady, bitter finish. Lots of grapefuit-citrus hops thrown around in there.

Mouthfeel - even but not smooth, a rough-edged IPA offering that stays crisp but doesn't have the same character as others in the style.

Drinkability - very enjoyable, a few of these would hit the spot in late-winter, early sping.

3.68/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured on tap into a 10 oz. pilsner glass at Barley Brother's. From notes.

Bit of a dark amber brown body with a slight hazy appearance, and some gold dark apricot hues. Head is quite creamy and almost nitrous looking with one finger presented and lots of lacing while finishing.

Nose has a big mushy fruit sense of tropical and herbal notes. Lots of mushy mango, papaya and soft tropical body. It's a bit odd in a way and not very bright though, almost as if it was over ripe rotten hop fruity sensations coming off.

Palate has more of a malt backbone and toned down hop angle. Very dry airy malt, with washing tropical hop softness on the mid palate. Lots of dense cookie and biscuit sensations more like a thick English Bitter. Mouthfeel continues those notes with a very creamy and chewy English Bitter quality. Aftertaste has limited hop flavors and minor aromas of pine and herbal tea. The tropical notes hit matching the nose on first sips but wash away quite quickly.

Overall it's a well made beer but for an IPA even for English it's lacking some hope presence (which some might say and could be argued it's more to style) a bit, but it's quite decent.

A solid sessional IPA that pours copper orange with some decent off-white foam. Aroma is citrus hops, berries, a bit of sourdough, a touch of caramel. Palate is more impressive than the aroma. Citrus (grapefuit, orange), some sweet caramel malt (but much more subdued than many other IPAs), a lingering bitter like green tea ... In fact, the citrus bitter reminds me a bit of a cup of Earl Gray. Resembles its big brother Loki in being smooth and well-balanced between malt and hops, although I notice some batch to batch variation: At times you get the nice fruity cup of tea and at others there is more harsh bitterness with some pine resin/cannabis notes. Perhaps this is an artifact of my palate. Finish is a bit oily and sweet, pleasant. All in all a very drinkable if mellow beer for hopheads and a good "starter IPA" for your beer friends who need a nudge past macrobrews or wheat ales.

A really great intro IPA. It won;t completely satisfy hopheads, but for someone trying to break into the ever difficult style of IPA, this is a wonderful beer to start with.
It delivers everything you'd want in a classic IPA, but without too much hop bitterness, which might scare away some less than adventerous beer drinkers. It's also one of the more sessional IPA's out there, and Paddock Wood is a brewery that everyone should support and keep thier eye's on.

A - Half finger head, good retention.
S - Pine, sweet, hoppy.
T - Bit watery, some hops up front, but not the expected sweetness.
M - Little carbonation, bit too smooth for an IPA.
O - Admittedly I'm not a big fan of English IPA's compared to the hoppier versions this side of the pond. That said, the lingering aftertaste and feel of this beer were not pleasant.

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

355ml brown bottle with pry-off cap poured in a pint glass. From a "Big Box o Beer" 12 pack mixer with Red Hammer, Loki and London Porter.

Copper-orange and just a little hazy. Cream coloured head is 1/2 inch on the pour and recedes to a few islands with strings of lace down the sides.

Strong scent of hops in the aroma. Mostly citrus and pine. Grapefruit, lemon and pine with a hint of caramel.

Bold hops off the start. Some malty balance through the middle then back to a bitter hop finish of pine. Citrus, malt and caramel blending smoothly in a long lasting piney hop finish.

Medium bodied with minimal carbonation.

One of my go to beers when I can get it. Not outstanding, but very solid and satisfying.

Bottle acquired form the MLCC within a few weeks of its arrival. No freshness date, poured into a Perfect Pint glass after 10 minutes of being removes from the fridge.

A:Pours a nice amber with a fluffy white head that drops to a light cap that leaves only small globs of lacing upon the edges of the glass.
S: Earthy hops with a bit of pine. Sweet caramel malts along with a hint of corn.
T: Dank earthiness to the hops, yet not nearly to my expectations of an IPA. Got bready malt backbone with a hint of sweetness.
M: Fairly strong bitterness that balances very well with the sweetness. Bitterness builds on the tongue. Great feel on the palate though as the even-handed carbonation, bitterness and body make it seem not too thin, yet certainly not too thick for the style.
O: Some stuff to love about this beer, but still not up to my expectations. An English IPA hop profile, but still a little more subdued than I would have liked...

355 mL bottle from TBS; packaged May 17 2012. Probably the only Saskatchewan-made beer available locally, seeing this one on the big board was a bit of a surprise - but I am always pleased to see another IPA available in town. Served only slightly chilled.

Pours a bright, clear orange-copper colour, topped at first with two fingers of puffy, frothy, off-white head that wilts away gradually over the following minutes. Left in its wake is a doily-pattern coat of lacing, and a smooth, even cap on the surface. The aroma is dominated by biscuity, bready malts and caramel, with some piney, vaguely citrusy hops to round it out. Decent for the style; nothing particularly notable.

The flavour is approachable, but definitely English in character and not something that will impress a lot of hopheads. As with the aroma, the flavour is mostly malty, with toasted bread, buttery, biscuity malts and caramel comprising the backbone. Grapefruit rind and some pine sap from the hops come forward in the finish. Dry aftertaste, with some lingering caramel maltiness. Medium-bodied, with mild carbonation and an exceptionally smooth mouthfeel. Very drinkable for an IPA, with the low-ish abv probably being a big reason for that.

Way better than Brewhouse - the only other SK-made beer I have reviewed previously. This is about as sessionable as an IPA gets, but flavour-wise it's not really a stand out in the category and not the sort of thing I'd go out of my way for. Reminds me of a lighter Dead Elephant or maybe Hops and Robbers - serviceable and fairly tasty, but nothing more.

Final Grade: 3.65, a respectable B grade. Paddockwood's 606 IPA is better than 95% of the stuff at TBS, and if you are a fan of English-style, malty IPAs, you should certainly consider it worth a try. This isn't the freshest IPA I've ever had, but it's definitely one of the most drinkable. Something I'd like to try on-tap some time, and an enjoyable selection for my 350th review.
