#4694 Whiprsnapr Rock'n'Hops DDH NEIPA from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3.5 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 7 | Flavor 7 | Overall 7 |
Thanks to PaleAleRider for this one for my birthday. Was expecting hazy, but amber colour, very slight haze with a warm frothy cap, good retention and some tiny spots of lacing. Sweet, fruity aromas mixing berry notes, cereal malt and some wheat, banana nose. Hoppy flavours over bubble gum hints. Cereal grain and grassiness basically. Quite bitter and dry in the finish. Gets hazier at last pour, but seems quite amber for a DDH or NEIPA. A little juicier, but so bitter, seems like a DDH Amber IPA that is not a NEIPA. Still pretty good.

#4693 Omnipollo Mimmi Mimosa from Stockholm, Sweden
Score: 3.2 | Aroma 6 | Appearance 5 | Mouthfeel 7 | Flavor 7 | Overall 7 |
Oh wow! This is good, but looks like pure orange juice, without the Sparkling for a Mimosa. Thick orange, bubbly head that disappears quickly leaving no lacing. Orange juice nose. Orange juice taste as well, but the sugar is felt in the end. Not too sour and lingers like an orange creamsicle. Alcohol warms up a little. Hints of vanilla to blend things. Quite an interesting 7% ABV juicy concoction.

#4692 Archibald Sure d'Ale Mangue from Quebec, Quebec, Canada
Score: 3.1 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 5 | Mouthfeel 6 | Flavor 6 | Overall 7 |
Hazy mango juice looking brew with a fizzy cap that dissipates quick enough leaving a small ring of bubbles. Mango fruity nose with some vanilla notes. The fruitiness gets more natural with time. Mango juiciness, but not super sweet with a tad sour finish that does not last long. Mild tart on the tongue. Nothing too offensive and glad not overly sour. Refreshing fruity beer.

#4691 Whitewater Brewing Lazy Days of Summer from Foresters Falls, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3.4 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 6 | Flavor 7 | Overall 7 |
Can that pours a hazy golden colour with a warm frothy, creamy cap that lasts for a while, leaving some foamy lacing. Passionfruit aromas with some spiciness notes. The taste has a bit more bitterness, than fruitiness. Looks like the fruitiness comes out more in the nose, than the flavours. I nice IPA that has the fruit in the nose.

#4690 Nita OPA Balanced IPA from Nepean, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3.5 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 7 | Flavor 7 | Overall 7 |
Part of the Ontario Craft Brewers IPA mixed 6-pack. Pours a golden-amber colour, very slightly unfiltered with a warm, creamy, foamy big head that lasts a while and leaves creamy-bubbly lacing. Sweet malt nose with grassy hops. The hops gives a nice bitterness with the grassiness in the flavours, over mild cereal grains. A good dryness appears in the finish. Some decent orange zest. A nice old-school bitter IPA.

#4689 Bench Brewing Short Hills from Beamsville, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3.7 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 8 | Mouthfeel 8 | Flavor 7 | Overall 7 |
Can that pours a little hazy, light-golden bright colour with a creamy-frothy warm head, good stay and some creamy-foamy lacing. Smells a little more on the grassy side, than juicy, but starting to balance itself off while breathing a bit. Seems like more Amarillo hops with the spiciness and grassiness. Milder oranges and hints of lemon. It is soft on the tongue. Juicier in taste, with the citrus notes and mild spiciness in the finish. A dryness then takes over. Gets hazier at the last pour with lots of tiny particles floating around. Not getting much tropical fruits, which should with these hops, but a softer juicy, hazy IPA. A good entry to this style.

#4688 Tuque de Broue Antidote DDH IPA from Embrun, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3.7 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 8 | Flavor 8 | Overall 7 |
Hazy golden colour with a creamy big warm head, good retention and loads of lacing. Aromas of citrus with oranges and lemons, juice and zest. These fruits are also in the flavours, but not super bitterly. Lightly juicy with a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel. Goes down nicely.

#4687 Beyond The Pale Focus (Loral and Pilsner) from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3.4 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 6 | Mouthfeel 7 | Flavor 7 | Overall 7 |
Can that pours a clean, light golden colour with a frothy white cap that stays around a while, leaving some foamy lacing. Spicy nose of hoppy pils eventually showing the way to mild cereal malts and grassiness. The Bohemian Pislner malt really show in the taste as the Loral hops stay quite calm. Very light peppery in the background with hints of grass. Nice to have a not overly-hopped up brew from BTP. A good easy-going Pilsner.

#4686 Spark Black as Midnight on a Moonless Morning Breakfast Stout from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3.8 | Aroma 8 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 8 | Flavor 7 | Overall 8 |
500ml bottle from the brewery, pouring a murky brown colour with light copper highlights. The soapy head is fairly tall, bubbling away slowly with its light mocha-colouring and leaving some foamy patches. Aromas of roasted malts with nuttiness to balance. Coffee and chocolate hints. Even maple, toffee. Same for the flavours, but with some good bitterness from the hops, adding a nice dry finish. Espresso tart blends well with the hoppiness on the tongue. Quite a nice light stout, that still delivers lots for 3% ABV.

#4685 Flora Hall DDH IPA (Nelson Sauvin-Moutere) from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3.7 | Aroma 8 | Appearance 8 | Mouthfeel 7 | Flavor 7 | Overall 7 |
Cloudy golden colour with some particles running through it. Frothy, creamy, warm cap with good retention and creamy-foamy lacing. Mild fruity-grassy hop nose with the oats softening and sweetening things. Again, mild enough hops in the taste with lighter bitterness than other DDH IPAs. Slightly dry finish with hints of spiciness, and gooseberries lingering on the tongue. A softer Double Dry Hopped IPA that is good to initiate people with for the style.
