Unfiltered and understated carbonation-that's good! A holiday surprise from BigBrye. Pours an attractive juicy dark orange, with no head perhaps affected by the weather. Mature hop with C hop, and malt aroma. Taste, with a medium mouthfeel, amarillo and other hops. Like a souped up 1.5 English IPA.Lacey. Recommended and underated. Had a couple again in 2011 LCBO and liked the drinkability.

355ml bottle, old-school train engine imagery on the label.

This beer pours a hazy, kind of glassy medium copper amber hue, with two flabby fingers of billowy, foamy, and somewhat bubbly off-white head, which leaves some broad swaths of dissipating cloud lace around the glass as it quite slowly recedes.

It smells of semi-sweet, biscuity caramel malt, a touch of sourdough, some juicy berry fruitiness, and mildly bitter lemon citrus, herbal, and leafy hops. The taste is sweetly bready, and caramelized malt, somewhat acrid yeasty notes, pithy orchard citrus fruit, and rather zingy leafy hops.

The carbonation is moderate, just a somewhat tightly-wound frothiness, the body medium-full in weight, for the style, and fairly airy in its smoothness. It finishes bready and off-dry, some earthy, leafy hops tamping things down.

Almost more reminiscent of an ESB, the old-world bitterness and biscuity malt testament to that. Well-made, soft, and approachable, this would make a good introduction to the multifaceted world of the IPA.

Thanks to Voonder for this one!

Pours deep reddish amber with a a thin tan head that stays, leaving some rings of lacing.

The smell is herbal, lightly floral, slightly citric with a mild biscuity, caramelish background.

The taste is on the hoppy side - a floral, herbal citric bitterness with caramel, almost chocolatey malty sweetness that lets go to leave a bitter, almost aspirin-y, finish. Malt is in the back, not quite in a rounding way.

It has a medium-body.

A relatively modest, for style, abv of 5.4% listed on the label. It has a touch of a bitter bite. An interesting hybrid of English and American style IPA.

3.7/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

The beer is a striking orange-amber that is notably robust; a golden underpinning is revealed in the light along with the full showcasing of its polished, shimmering coppery luster. The pour was concerningly flat, and you almost need a microscope to make out the thin line of white that loops around the surface. I won't be expecting any lacing.

The nose has an optimistic amount of grapefruit flesh and orange skin as well as a faint candy sweetness and a trail of tiny pine needles, much like the one left by a dried-out Christmas tree being taken out to the curb. Amber malts are discernible - as are harder than usual water minerals - but malty toast and sweetness come in moderation.

Not that the aroma was blaring to begin with, but my first few sips give the impression that someone turned the volume of the beer way down. The hops are nearly inaudible, imparting little more than a very faint citrusy character, and the malts too are clammed up, with hardly any flavour, let alone succulence. This ain't no damn library - speak up, boy!

So the flavour is mild, but at least it's pleasant. Unfortunately it's a bit harder to put a similar positive spin on the mouthfeel, but here goes: water minerals are evident and sparkle on the palate (good thing though, the carbonation is almost flat). A faint, fruity zest lingers in the aftertaste, lending a nice earthy note without much astringency or bitterness.

Relative to most American (and increasingly Canadian) offerings, 606 is an IPA whose hoppiness coasts on fumes. Still, there's probably enough in the tank to please some fans of the style, and it's without a doubt agreeable enough to appeal to most mainstream drinkers. I could have done without a full six pack, but will look forward to the next few bottles.

3.68/5  rDev 0%
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.

Bottle courtesy of northyorksammy. Thanks!
It poured a deep orange colour with a bit of haze, topped by a thin cap of fine whitish foam. A lasting collar produced some sticky lacing. Rich malty aroma, lots of caramel, with balanced floral and grassy hops, perhaps a bit of citrus. Solid bitterness throughout, lingering hop character. Maltiness up front faded towards the end with herbal and grassy hops filling out the flavour. Nice texture, medium bodied with average carbonation, slight dryness. An easy drinking IPA with enough bitterness, but I would prefer a sturdier malt flavour.

A: Copper with an off-white head, slight retention & lacing.

S: A good hop nose with citrus, grass & a little spice. Some underlying pale malt.

T: Orange, grapefruit & grass; biscuity pale malt with a little nut, modest bitterness for the style, slight cardboard-like oxygenation. Alcohol is well-hidden. It's got the hop flavour and nose, but it's really more of a pale ale than an IPA.

M: Moderate body & carbonation.

D: A good drinker.

355ml bottle poured into pint glass may26 2010

A slightly hazy copper color with some suspended particles and mild carbonation floating up to a very fast falling thumbs width of head that left no lace

S fairly sweet with lots of caramel and some biscuit to go along with some mellow hops

T not far from the smell, not as sweet though and that helps it cause, more malt going on here a little unbalanced but nothing to worry about

M a little thin but there's more carbonation in the mouth then you can see in the glass

D I would drink this again but there's a large number of English IPA's I would choose before it

I've had a few beers from this brewer and all have been respectable but not amazing. I can't give you a reason not to try this beer but I wouldn't go looking for it

Thanks to Pino for giving me a shot at a 6 pack of this from his store, a pleasant surprise. 341ml bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appears a reddish-orange, with some haziness to the appearance. White head with a bit of lace and mild retention. Nose of pretty fresh hops, mostly grapefruit and a general citrus. Some toffee in there as well. Not complex, but well defined. Taste is fairly bitter initially, some citrus and grapefruit and a caramel toffee malt. Slightly watery in the mouth, with a bitter finish not lasting too long. Pretty good drink.

A - Pours a nice dark gold/light copper colour with a fluffy, eggshell head of two fingers. Lot's of carbonation. Bright.

S - Early, grassy hops with a quality rye bread, toffee malt backbone. Very mild, but nice.

T - Much more a hop kick than in the aroma. Very piney, resinous hops complimented by a good dose of those malty qualities, most prominently toffee. Good balance.

M - Quite a bit of carbonation, more than necessary. Medium body. Decently bitter finish.

D - Very quaffable. The first beer of the night I actually want to finish. Good balance and a nice dose of bitterness with a good abv make this quite drinkable. I can see this being a go to Canadian IPA.

I actually really this beer because it is an English take on an IPA rather than the now usual PNW style. Mid gold with a nice head you get hops off the nose but no grapefruit or citrus. The beer is a dry spicy take on the style and oh so drinakble. I will use this as a change from Tree Hophead et al. that I usually drink.

Pours a deep amber with a small off-white head, and some decent lacing. The aroma is a mix of hops in a herbal slightly spicy character and malt, in the form of biscuit. There's also a touch of citrus, mineral and flowers in there, and the whole package reminded me of a really well-made cask bitter. The taste has a nice mild bitterness, but the hops shine in providing a wonderful floral and earthy aspect to the brew, along with the expected citrus. The biscuit malt body also shines, and helps to balance things nicely. Medium body and carbonation.

This is a very well balanced beer, but not with the large amount of bitterness that I've come to expect from an IPA. Its very much in the English style, and demonstrates a refined subtlety. Thanks Alex!

A - Pours a slightly hazy golden copper with an orange hue, finger of head with intense retention and some fine sticky lacing.

S - Lemon and lime hops, reminiscent of iced tea, very sweet, with some light caramel notes on the finish.

T - A wee bit metallic, but the lemon iced tea hops come through nicely. The hops are a little bitter as well, but not hugely offensive. Bready caramel malts linger on the finish.

M - Medium body with decent carbonation, a bit prickly going down and the finish was a tad dry.

D - Solid IPA from Paddock Wood and worth a try to any hop fan. Decent balance between the hops and malts.

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

Translucent, seriously hazed nutty amber in appearance, tall frothy slightly off-white head with impressive retention and thick chunky lacing in its wake.

Sweet, almost sugary malt on the nose accompanied by grassy, light grapefruit rind hops.

While the malt is present, the hops seem to be the main attraction here, light toasted biscuity malt overshadowed by a refined and well-behaved blend of hops, earthy, grassy, mildly herbal with a good zip of grapefruit and pine. The hops politely linger on in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is fairly light and lightly carbonated, seems more watery at times than it should be, yet at the same times deceptively gives off the impression of lending itself as a good session ale.

Almost seems more like an assertively hoppy pale ale, or a sort of hybrid IPA (a bit of English hop elements, a bit of American hop elements). Enjoyable, though not overly memorable, however would make a good intro or midway IPA for those getting their palates adapted and familiar to this style, it won't blast out the tastebuds with aggressive hops, all the while with the hops still remaining the predominant character.

Having lived in Alberta for 6.5 years just a few hours from the Saskatchewan border, I think this is actually my first ever beer from Saskatchewan. Pours a hazy copper-orange colour with thin white head. The head dissipates fairly quickly, mild lacing on the glass. Smells of earthy and citrus hops with a lot of caramel. Mild bitterness in the flavour. Medium bodied carbonation.

Pours a cloudy orange-amber colour, thin soapy head, slight lacing left behind. Malty citrus, citrus hops and a spicy lemon zest like scent in the nose. Tastes of citrus, nice bitter hops, a nice malt puts this in check and finished with a dry fruitiness. Medium to thin mouthfeel thats nice at first but then is a little watery. Overall solid brew, nice hoppy english IPA.

Brown bottle, alcohol listed at 5.4% on the label.
Color is clear, dark amber / orange. Thin white foam that quickly didsappears, no lacing to speak of. Smell of citrus hops and some sweet malt behind. Taste has the biscuity malt and lots of hop flavor. Slightly bitter finish with a smooth aftertaste. Good mouthfeel, seemed to be lots of carbonation. Could easily be a nice sessional, easy drinking.
Though not as bad as Keith's IPA, it isn't like the big hop IPAs that seem to be coming out. An all aroung good English style IPA.

Bottle:

Poured a clouded deep burnished copper with minimal head but decent lacing qualities.

Nose is woody-earthy hops with some light citrus, under rich caramel malts.

Profile: Good dose of caramelized Maris otter in the front... toffee-like tastes joined by cedar hops to balance...midway the malts get toasty, the hops get lightly citrus then the finish is dried up a bit as the hops get lightly bitter against the sturdy malt backbone.

A decent IPA but not the big Pac NW IPA I expected...if I closed my eyes it could be a double for Heritage’s Sgt. Major.

A - a clear copper with a tall pillowy off white head that dissipated to random lacing up the glass
S - strong with citrus, grassy, and spicy hop notes, bready malts, and candied fruit
T - strong grapefruit citrus hops, the other hop notes are very light, subtle bready malts
M - low to medium carbonation, somewhat thin, very citrus bitter tartness (too much?) finishing dry
D - the nose suggest a nice hop mix, but the tart citrus and bitter seems to drown everything else out, still a decently drinkable beer, but nothing compared to their Loki Double IPA

Courtesy of northyorksammy (thanks!). Poured from a 12oz bottle into my Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.

Princeton orange cloudy gradient bleeding into lighter shades of orange peel and eventually amber. A smattering of ivory forms a lasting collar and microscopic slick. Decent lacing.

Caramel malt, herbaceous hops, brine-suffused sea air, green papaya, and kiwi in the nose. Very inviting.

Moderately grassy English hops backed by a dry biscuity malt base. A straight-forward, clean, yet rich flavor profile. Dandelion greens, iris, white tea, and other floral notes come forward, no one standing out from the others. Faint toffee from malt perhaps in the finish. Well balanced and distinctive.

Medium-light bodied, with light but persistent carbonation.

While I'm not that familiar with the specific style in question, this is an excellent beer and seems to adhere well to the guidelines. Who knew you could find something this tasty in as far-flung a place as Saskatoon?

Nice English style IPA. Golden-copper colour with a very thick head. Nice, well-balanced malt-hop smell. Traces of citrus and fresh-baked bread.

Definite lemony-hop flavour with rich, yeast-y and toffee malt flavours. Very easy drinking and enjoyable.

Good carbonation, though sometimes it seems a bit weak. A nice session IPA.
