167/567)  C'est What:  St. Ambroise Pale Ale by McAuslan of Quebec:  **;  nicely balanced;  hoppier than the English style but otherwise pretty close;  closes with a bitter finish and after taste;

168/568)  C'est What:  Hopper Car by Junction Craft Brewing of Ontario:  **; on cask;  the taste is floral hoppiness;  there is a sweetness and soft mouth feel to this effort;

169/569)  beerbistro:  Union Jack IPA by Firestone Walker of California, U.S.A.:  **1/2;  this was from their bottled selection;  it is a British styleIPA using only all Noble hops;  at 7.5%, it is a bit strong;  hoppy with notes of raisins, dates, currents;  not exactly what I was expecting from an IPA from the west coast - a very pleasant surprise, indeed;
