Bought it on special a pack of 6 for 8,99 $
Orange gold color. Nice fruity smell.
I tried the Alexander Keith IPA and wasn't very impressed about it.
Boreale IPA have a nice balance. I find it a bit strong 6,2 ABV I wish it was more about 5,5 or 5,8 ABV. But nothing to complain about.
I notice a very nice taste of the beer after 2 or 3 minutes after you drink it. I was surprise because most of the beer around 5 or 6 ABV, the taste goes away very soon but this one it stays and at the end it s a real smooth taste that u got even after 10 minutes that u drink it.
So would I recommend it ? For an IPA, for sure ! U can t go wrong with this one. Much, much better than the Alexander Keith IPA.

Pours to give a hazy, coppery body with around two fingers of soapy off white head. The aroma has some citrus and pine touches along with a metallic hint and caramel maltiness. The taste has a smooth, general bitterness, along with some faint pepperiness and caramel from malt, and continued light citrus rind and pine from the hops. The feel is soft on the palate, with a light finish overall. Very nicely balanced IPA, definitely something I'd consider as a regular when in the province.

Pretty much meets the requirements for an IPA. Hazy gold colour body with medium lace. There's a lingering aroma I can't quite put my finger on but I'm not a fan of whatever it is - the closest I can come up with is malt vinegary. Malty and hoppy balanced off with a little citrus. Moderate bitterness and carbonation. Strange beer in the sense I don't like the smell but the taste is fine.
