Pours an amber colour. Has a good fat finger width gold tinged head, with large foamy bubbles. Has a nice hoppy taste with slight bitterness as you would expect from a good IPA. Foams in your mouth, and finishes slightly sweet. One of my personal favorites, delicious by any standard, any occasion!

Beautiful orange colour. Very fruity, piney, dank and citrusy from the hops. Slightly caramelly sweet malt background. Crisp carbonated medium to light mouth feel. Definitely a good, sessionable IPA from both beginners and seasoned hop heads.

It is interesting to taste this IPA, now that I have enjoyed many others in this style. Mt. Begbie was (and remains) one of my favourite BC breweries, largely because I love Revelstoke. I had my first Nasty Habit in Revy and remember thinking how hoppy and strong it was. Overall, its a pretty tame IPA. It pours with minimal head and a mild hop/yeast/biscuit aroma. The taste is quite nice - malt, bittering hops, with a touch of citrus. It finishes quite inoffensively and definitely fits the bill as an accompanying beverage.

3.6/5  rDev -3.5%

A - Dark amber with not much of a head and minimal lacing
S - Very mild citrus, slightly bready
T - Mild grapefruit, lacking in the piney bitterness to offset the sweet caramel taste that I would expect from an IPA
F - Medium carbonation and slight bite to the tongue
O - A little weak for an IPA, but would be a nice refreshing beer to drink after a long hot day of yard work. Would probably be a good introductory IPA for someone who is apprehensive about trying one. I wouldn't buy this again but would also not turn one down if offered it by a friend.
