Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Getting up early and dragging dead fish around all day is a tough gig. That’s why we want to pay homage to the hard working fish mongers down on Baldwin Street. This IPA is big, assertive and full of attitude…not too unlike the surly characters slicing and dicing today’s catch. A wonderfully floral, piney and mildly citrus nose comes by way of an excessive dose of American hops and British ale yeast. The big malt bill achieves a chewy body with a sweet finish. Meant to be enjoyed in moderation, this beer is perfect…anytime.

Serving Type - 473ml can, poured into a pint glass

Appearance - A fine looking beer. Pours a clear Copper/orange in colour with a decent 2 fingers of thick white head which seems to be sticking around. A mild amount of carbonation is visible. No hop resin that I can see.

Smell - Your standard I.P.A. fare here...citrus and pine in a big way. Malty smells...biscuit and caramel are also present.

Taste - More of the same. Getting s caramel malts up front, followed by some decent citrus. Towards the end I'm getting mostly pine and a lingering bitterness, but given the style it's quite mild.

Mouthfeel - Pretty light for an IPA. Carbonation is low as well. Beer finish wet and smooth.

A pleasant find at the local LCBO... Surprising it made it this far north, but certainly glad it did.

A - Pours a nice amber, finger of head with decent retention and some nicr sheeting lacing.

S - Sweet citrus, earthy pine and cedar, caramel, toffee and a slight metallic finish.

T - Follows the nose, sweet citrus, sugared grapefruit, earthy cedar and a touch of metallic notes. The finish is more bitter with mandarin rind and a touch of caramel.

M - Medim bodied, smooth and surprisingly wet.

O - A pleasant addition to the IPA selection locally and something I would both recommend and grab more of. Easily sessioned and well worth picking up. Here's to hoping they stock this regularly.

Poured from a 473ml can, best before Jan. 1, 2017.

Pours a deep burnt orange color with decent head and lacing. Biscuity malt at first but followed by a moderate bitterness with flavors of tea-like hops.
