Nice and hoppy. Nothing new, but still good. A decent alcohol content, and it’s always nice to try something new from Hop Valley.

Oakes (13303) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2015
Hazy dark blonde. Bubbly head. Aroma is mellow, herbal. Palate is spicy, with a slightly sweet maltiness. Good balance on this one. Still a fair bit of dryness.

rosenbergh (8316) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 8, 2015
12 oz bottle. Bottled on 08/03/15. (By the Bottle) Vancouver, WA.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Sweet fruity, piney and citrusy hoppy aroma. Delicious and balanced. The flavour is as balanced. Fruits, tea, pine, mild resin, mild grapefruit, moderate bitterness and mild cookie malty notes. Just a tad thin. Otherwise perfect IPA.
