Prohibition Lawless IPA ia an uncompromising, overly hopped, ale inspired by the 1920’s brews that sat in underground tunnels and rail-cars destined for dry countries. This IPA attacks your taste buds with a crisp and hoppy profile that was demanded in the blind pigs and speakeasies of days gone by. Prohibition’s complex, refreshing, honest flavors are craft brewed in small batches at a small unassuming brewery in British Columbia, Canada. Only the finest ingredients including pristine Canadian water and Cascade hops are used to deliver a beer so good you’d ask for it even if it was prohibited.

Dark ruty colored pour, with a medium tan head. Aroma of caramel malts, brown sugar, burnt grass and super earthy, almost dirty hops. The finish is medium bitter, with an incredibly earthy hop finish with light sweet caramel notes. Not a very good ipa. Reminds me alot of what mill stret tankhouse has become.

Bomber - dark gold with a soapy head, some lacing, not really hoppy at all. Has a metallic taste and thin.

On tap at Prohibition, pours a clear copper with a medium beige head. Aroma is pretty sharp on the hops, with a bit of a medicinal quality. Flavour is quite hoppy and vibrant, with notes of pine and resin, fruitiness, and biscuity malt. Well-balanced and drinkable. Their best beer.

jksipa (327) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Slightly hazy deep orange with a big rocky tan head that leas a lot of lace. Pine and citrus with a good helping of honey and toffee on the nose. Sweet start with a lot of chewy cascade bitterness. Medium mouth and carbonation but finish is a bit watery and metallic. One dimensional

Oakes (12398) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
Golden amber. Aroma is slightly woody cascades, maybe a bit of chewy maltiness. Earthy front then limey, berryish character I would not normally associate with cascades. Bit light on the bitterness and the finish is a bit quick, but it isn’t bad.

GreenJeremy (71) - Spruce Grove, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 18, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2014 pours topaz with a long lasting, fluffy white head. Aromas include grapefruit, oranges, and some pine and caramel sweetness. The nose is more appealing than the flavors. Not a whole lot going on. Nicely bitter but kind of watery mouthfeel. Just ok.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 12, 2014
Rating #1022 - Must have missed this one, definitely got a sample bottle from the vendor rep. Pours a hazy copper orange with a fairly frothy head. spotty lacing. Aroma is honey, doughy malt and sweet sweet citrus, tangerine, lemon. Great sticky-bun malt character here, lots of sweetness tempered by this dry-hopped northwest style IPA, lots of sticky bitter notes in the finish. Nice.

JesseMartineau (86) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 12, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2014 Pours slightly hazy gold, with thick off white head, leaves some lacing. Aromas of citrus, oranges pine and tropical fruits. Taste of citrus, orange, slight hint of caramel. Leaves a little hop bitterness, but not a ton. It’s nice but much better ipas out there.

2014-04-10, draught at Prohibition tasting Bar, Vancouver, 7-5-7-4-14=37
Golden-amber color, just hazy, with creamy persistent head. Very nice aroma, fruity hops, citrus fruits, hint of tropical fruits and chamomile.
Smooth mouthfeel; the malt, caramel and toffee flavor is not bad; impression of grains and raw malt; the strong hopping provides nice chamomile and orange character; lean and long final, with a caramel presence along with the hop resins.
Good IPA, although more hop freshness is expected when drinking it in-house.

2013-12-28, bottle from Boundary Crossing Liquor Store, Vancouver, 6-4-7-3-13=33
Hazy golden color with generous compact head. The malt is a bit toffeeish, the hops mildly resiny, very lightly fruity and grassy; correct body; expected bitterness level.
Clean but rather simple.

Bottle. Clear golden pour. Nose pretty tamed - some light citrus and grassy notes. Taste has more of a malt profile..hops aren't too prominent. Caramel biscuit malts. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
