As rugged as the terrain traversed by the 23 Cariboo camels, this IPA boasts a unique hop profile. Reigned in bitterness allows the flirtatious battle between the resinous character and tropical notes to play out. Look for hints of lychee, citrus and evergreen. This unfiltered IPA finishes dry, with an ever so slight malt influence.

Had this last year from a 650ml bottle and didn’t really enjoy it, figured I would give it another try from a can and now I think ifs great. Taste and aroma are very tropical with some pine mixed in with the taste. Not overly hoppy but very flavorful

Okay bleach white head and golden body. Soft hops aroma. Flavour is more hops but not too sharp, kind of restrained, medium finish. Okay IPA, middling, blah, whatevs, just okay. Meh.

hazy golden color. Big passionfruit and tropical nose. The mouth is big fruity with tons of tropical fruit and modest bitterness. Fairly dry. Modest bitter finish. 48 ibus but could have gone higher.

vadie (1225) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2015
Jaune/cuivre avec une moyenne robe blanche. L’arôme des fruits tropicaux et un peu de malt léger. En bouche c’est un amertume moyenne pour un IPA du code l’ouest, et une grande profile des houblons aromatiques.

CapFlu (5100) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
Small white foamy head atop a cloudy gold body. Nose of grapefruit and lime. Flavour is nicely hopped with a mild fruitiness through the finish. Nice mild resin late in the palate. As with everything from Barkerville, this is well above average and very pleasant to drink. Nice stuff. Purchased at Liquor Planet in Langford.

Bottle, shared with Parksy and others. Medium golden, frothy white head. Bready pale malts, lightly sweet, with a gentle piney hop presence, a bit of grapefruit too. Not bad.

Amber body, foamy off white head. Fruity, resinous aroma and taste. Tropical fruit, not super bitter, but a nice beer overall.

ENG: 650ml bottle from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the Teku glass. Nice, orange, opalescent color with medium, tan head and a bit of lacing. Very hoppy aromas of tropical fruits, citrus, resiny. Tastes a bit balanced, a lot of caramel and malts mixed with hops, citrusy and piney mostly. Quite strong bitter aftertaste. Medium carbonation and medium body. Overall quite balanced flavors, but a bit watery. Great aromas, maybe a bit too strong bitter overwhelming the flavors, but not too unpleasantly. Decent brew.

PL: Butelka 650ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do Teku. Ładna pomarańczowa, opalizująca barwa, piana jasna, średnia, nieco lejsingu. Aromaty mocno chmielowe, owoce tropikalne, cytrusy, żywica. W smaku zbalansowane, sporo karmelu i słodów zmieszanych z chmielem, głównie cytrusy i żywica. W posmaku dość intensywna goryczka. Średnie nasycenie, średnie odczucie w ustach. Podsumowując dość zbalansowane smaki, ale nieco wodniste. Natomiast goryczka nieco zbyt intensywna, przeważająca nad smakami, ale nie jest jakoś nieprzyjemna. Całkiem niezłe piwo.

Bottle. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of white grapefruit, dry pale malt, and cut grass. Grapefruit, coriander, and more pale malt in the mouth with a savory mineral finish. Simplistic and a bit mild, but fairly well executed.
