COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When it’s quitting time around the brewery the team can often be caught snagging a pint of this British style malt forward IPA. We call it Fog-O’clock and it’s becoming a bit of a Yukon trend! Unlike the hundreds of other IPA’s out there, we’re not going for the “hip and hop” award with this brew, going over the top with bitterness. It’s a session beer for folks who appreciate an IPA with balance.

Not enough hops for this hop head! Lots of malt but more of a PA then IPA.

I malty ipa with subdued hop bitterness. A very enjoyable beer but I do prefer more of an American ipa with more up front hop flavour.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 18, 2013
Bottle, 5.4%. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, not citrusy, but earthy, floral. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and roast malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Definitely a british style IPA, not cascadey in the sli Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious.

Bottle - Grains and tea. Gold and no head. Grains and some nice bitterness. I would consider this a nice English bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a nice peach colour. Nice sweet citrus and honey aromas. Similar malty flavours with a fairly mild hop finish

Narnad (1462) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Pours a deep yellow color with a very small, dense white head. Aroma has a mild grassy presence with some light orange citrus and a modest grainy malt presence. Flavor is good but there is a bit of a skunk to it my opinion. Malt is a bit more of a presence than you typically see in an IPA. Body is light and pretty fizzy with some light dryness and a great lacing left on the glass. Overall a decent brew and I understand where the brewer was going. Not a lot of weakness but lacks some of the "umph" to make it an IPA and less of a Pale Ale.

Jayseppi (154) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2013
Head that disappears quickly and leaves little to no lace. The aroma is underwhelming as is the aroma, hopping is faint, definintely not what I’m looking for in an IPA. Mouthfeel is nice and carbonation isn’t too prickly. Wont be revisiting this beer again.

andrewturba (969) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 16, 2013
Pours a hazy golden amber colour with big initial white head that quickly dissolves into a a light ring around the glass and leaves a little lace up the sides. Aromas of grass, mild citrus, and some british caramel malt. Flavour consists of a moderate bitterness, faint british malts coming through with a touch of biscuit but overall a bit thin on the malts for an english ipa. Though must give props for the 6abv and doing a quite session-able beer out of the norm.

Reimer96 (1219) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 30, 2012
Pours a clear golden with a nice frothy white hat. Aroma of some citrus but really grassy & malty. Smells of the fuggle variety. Taste is a little something else surprised that it’s six percent as it’s really thin and could benefit from more hops and a bigger malt profile. Taste is light malts with some bitterness on the finish. Entry Level ipa.
