COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A robust best bitter for the hop lovers. A generous helping of chinook hops makes this breezy brew a draft to remember.

This really hit the spot after a day on Whistler. Went great with my meal.

When at the High Mountain brewpub, I asked the bartender for his hoppiest offering. This is what he gave me and I was insulted. Bitter is not one of the words I would use to describe this ale. Decent nonetheless.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 Notes from August í07 with Dave Woodward as brewmaster...canít remember if thatís the same as before. Bright dark copper. Brown sugar malts on the nose with rich woody, grapefruity hops. On the palate, more toast comes through along with a slightly pithy grapefruit bitterness. Clean, tasty. In time the brewerís intent is to get an IPA into the regular lineup and recraft this brew in a more English style. But for now itís pretty good.

Notes from Jan í06 with the same brewer as last August: Golden-amber colour. Toasty-earthy English hop aroma. A bit thin. Astringent roast background hints at mashing/sparging issue. Unpleasant. Ar 7 Ap 3 Fl 4 P 2 O 6 = 2.2

Notes from August í05 with the new brewmaster. Slightly hazy dark brown. Earthy, spicy aroma with crystal malt and light foresty hop. Light bitterness. A little bit of stale hop character and punchy dark malts. Itís not huge, but itís got character. Itís also very similar to the brews at Howe Sound - is that where they got their new brewmaster? Iíll have to find out. Ar 7, Ap 3, Fl 7, P 3, O 14 = 3.4
