BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Gahan House
Prince Edward Island, Canada
gahan.ca

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer doesn’t hold back. We start with as much Canadian barley as we can fit in our mash mixer, then add some toasty Munich malt and toffee-flavoured crystal malt for a rich, malty balance to the hop onslaught that follows. We cram our kettle with Centennial and Cascade hop varieties for refreshing clean bitterness and hop flavour, then dry hop in the fermenter for an aroma that will spank you right in the face. Party like its 1772!

A style possibly more true to form and not a North American bruiser. Class of the English with all the right elements in place. It does however Teeter on a North American ESB in some ways with more than ample hoppiness. Very enjoyable brew and deserving of your attention

On tap at Gahan House Harbourfront in Halifax, NS. Pous a clear golden amber with an enthusiastic fluffy white head. Initial impression is a fairly sweet, very malty brew with some IPA characteristics (ABV, I suppose - and maybe a relatively bitter finish - but that's about it). Not your typical American IPA. Mouthfeel is medium as is carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. Finish leaves a slight bitterness at the back of the throat. Not bad, but not my cuppa when there are so many better choices.

Good colour & head. Citrus nose from the Centennial & Cascade hops, bitter resinous finish. Indistinguishable from Mad Tom IPA (to me).

A: Amber and crystal clear, with plenty of head.
S: Floral hops.
T: Floral hops, mildly piney. Milder than I'd expect for an IPA, but not bad.
F: Medium bodied.

Bottle (courtesy of LL) to pint glass. Best of the PEI 4pack so far( but the stout still lurks.).

LOOK: mostly clear, yellow-orange. Medium white head that lasts. Persistent carbonation is evident.
AROMA: lots of citrus and tropical fruit.
TASTE: more fruit, mango, lime, even kiwi?. Slight resinous pine shows up late.
FEEL: Medium body, carbonation holds throughout.

Very nice IPA, pleasantly surprised with this one as the Brown Ale and the Honey Wheat were sub par.

Pours a fairly transparent, orange body with soapy, creamy head. The smell is sweet, with a citrusy, tropical aroma leading the way as an American IPA would. The taste has little sharpness, though what comes through is just a little tangerine from the hops followed by a sub-par body. Not a bad feel, but a disappointment. Still alright.

Look:
Nice copper color (sorry it's "colour" for all my Canadian advocates). Not quite filtered but not murky either. One finger head.

Smell:
Caramel, biscuit, earth and tree bark.

Taste:
Peppery and malty, piney bitterness hits about mid palate with some mild sweetness at the end.

Feel: Perfect carbonation for the style, good body.

Overall: An excellent English IPA, I drifted away from the style with some of the American IPA's breaking boundaries. However this is a style, and this is a beer, worth enjoying for sure.
