I haven't tried yet, but I will eventually. I have my doubts though considering their IPA tastes like a lager with little to no hop character....

I feel the same thing. First time i had it in a bar, i didnt realize it was an ipa. Figured it was just a typical BMC beer.

That IPA can't be more than 25 IBU's...

The commercial for the Cascade Ale is definitely intriguing though and I will try just because I love cascade. On a side note, I was really surprised by Boreal's IPA.

I haven't really drank a ton of ipa's that had that hop punch too it. Most store bought commercial ipa's sold in Ontario taste like every other beer. Now that i'm brewing my own beer, i don't even want to go buy beer.

I had a couple of different Muskoka's, and found them excellent. Can't stand Alexander Keith, tasted like Canadian Budweiser.

Got a few of these beers Xmas time bc my parents are friends with the founder of biermarket. He developed the beer as a introductory ipa/hopped beer for the restaurant, and used Keith's to brew the beer. They are now releasing it as a Keith's product as well.

The beer is good, not great. I believe cascade to 55 ibu's and only a slight adjunct flavour in the malt. Would recommend it to someone who has never tried that style (your girlfriend or wife?) but would ignore it if you are an avid hop head or craft beer fan. I would compare it to wild rose ipa (calgary beer).

From PA but was in Kitchener, Ontario recently and hit the LCBO to grab a few brews to bring back and saw some of these and grabbed a few cans of the Cascade and Hallertauer. Overall I like them both, especially the Cascade. I also grabbed some Barking Squirrel (love it) and one called "Hops and Robbers" that I haven't tried yet.
