Archibald Ciboire IPA

Archibald Ciboire IPA

Ratebeer 2.85 25th percentile
Beer Advocate B+

Taste +1

This was not a great beer. Its nose was ripe with caramel and vegetal. The high carbonation gave a very mineral taste. It was creamy with a medium mouthfeel, but more like a amber ale. I never really noticed a hop presence.

Aftertaste -1

After the creaminess left the hop bite was minimal at best. The hops were a little soapy.

Alcohol Content 6% +1

Value 0

This was a very lackluster and uninspired beer. Very overpriced at $10 a 500ml can. I don't think I would pay $1 for this swill again.

Ingame Enhancement 0

I had this beer in the Quebec house at the 2010 Olypmic Games. At least the floor show was excellent.

Overall 1/10

I'm not sure if I got a bad can, or it got too warm, but this beer stank. For an IPA there was no hop bite and lame, tired malts. I would rate Alexander Keith's a better IPA than this.
