A: Dark amber liquid with minimal white head.

S: Non existent hops, only clean yeast.

T: Lemon, buttery, caramel and toffee.

M: Medium viscosity and carbonation.

O: With the heavy amount of C-120 malt, this would make a good ESB, but as an IPA its lacking. Mt. Begbie should just rebrand this recipe as their ESB.

Dark amber colored brew with nice lasting foamy ice colored head. Lacing is grim. Good clarity.

Mild aroma. Fairly medicinal. Chamomile, floral, buttery.

Kinda uninspired flavors. Easy drinker, smooth, very mild flavors, next to zero bitterness or sweetness. Missing bitterness. Carbonation is medium prickly and nice. Flavors are kinda weak, bland pine, sugary, heavy caramel.

Much more of an ESB or amber than IPA. Step 'yo game up Canada!! Can't recommend.

A: Clear copper with a good amount of head and good retention.
S: Citrus, tropical fruit
T: This beer doesn’t quite have the bitter bite I would expect of an IPA, but it does have a decent hop profile - I'm mainly picking up pine and citrus.
F: A bit weak.
O: A good beer, but not the best West Coast IPA I’ve had.
