look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

600ml bottle poured into a pint glass. ABV 5.6%.

A - Poured a slightly hazy golden orange with a 2cm frothy off-white head. Head reduced to a very long lasting cap. Good lacing.

S - Citrus, some grass, some earthiness, backed by caramel sweetness.

T - Mildly sweet caramel flavours, citrus, some spice, finish has a nice bitterness with a light but lasting aftertaste.

M - Medium-heavy body, medium carbonation, some resin like stickiness (probably from the dry hopping), drying finish.

O - Pretty good and well crafted as I'd expect from Beau's. It has a good amount of bitterness without being a hop bomb. Time to grab another one as this can be enjoyed repeatedly in a session.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A) amber in color, decent head, floaty bits that looked more like trub than yeast

S) For an IPA "designed to appeal to hop heads" the aroma is tiny and what is there is rather malty and biscuity rather than hoppy

T) much more of a UK IPA than a WC IPA but with increased bitterness

M) more full than dry with a lingering bite

O) in the spectrum of beer as a whole I'd call this a 3.5 but in the spectrum of the IPA market it is well below that.

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

A - clear copper with a tall soapy head that left random blobs along the glass as it receded
S - earthy, peppery, mild citrus, caramel, and a little grainy
T - interesting hop mix of herbal and earthy with a pleasant lemon juice citrus, light pepper, and slightly salty
M - lighter body, somewhat creamy, mild bitter with a citrus crispness, an easy drinker
O - solid all around, unassuming and flavourful, the more sips I have the more i like it, this could be easily sessioned

Bright medium amber with a small off-white head that leaves spots of lacing.

Light aroma of caramel punctuated with tangerine. Herbal hops with a good bitterness, particularly toward the finish. Caramel malt is prominent but finishes dry.

Medium body with good carbonation. As is typical of a lot of Canadian IPehs, this beer seems to feature the astringent bittering properties of the hops much more than the aromatics or other flavors.

Yet another brew courtesy of peensteen, thanks for the hook-up!

A - Pours a crystal clear copper color with a reddish hue, two fingers of head with solid retention and some nice sheeting lacing.

S - Musty citrus, wet cardboard, burnt sugar and toffee on the finish.

T - exactly as described, a mix between the musty English hop and a bold and bitter citrus hop lingers on the finish. The caramel backbone complements the hop profile. Scrumptious!

M - Medium bodied, smooth and surprisingly wet given the bitterness of the finish.

O - A solid IPA that delivers both the English and American hop notes. Full flavored, easy drinking and highly recommended to anyone who has access to it.

IPEh? is a delightful little beer. Pours a beautiful copper colour with an off-white head that leaves nice lacing. The smell is quite sweet but no dry-hopping here - at least not that I can tell. A hint of grapefruit. But once you take a sip, it's no longer a hint. It smashes your tastebuds with citrus, almost no up-front malty sweetness (contrary to the smell), and VERY bitter. Hmmm... I think that's the description of the ideal American IPA. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Overall - wow. Good job Beau's!
