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.

rosenbergh (6493) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 31, 2010
341 ml bottle. Barriere, BC, Canada.
Clear deep golden colour with small white head. Mildish fruity hops with some caramel and malt in aroma. Rather mild fruity floral hops, not much bitterness in flavour. Quite mild for an IPA. Sweetish malty body and some caramel.

mcberko (5942) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 29, 2010
355mL bottle, pours clear golden yellow with almost no head. Aroma of bready malts / cereal, hay and stale grassy / citrusy hops. Flavour of one-dimensional citrusy hops with slight malt backing. Quite a weak IPA.

TimE (3092) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 18, 2010
An IPA with training wheels, this has a solid hoppy, upfront nose with lots of citrus and tropical fruit notes. The body is light, very hop forward with little backbone or complexity. The finish is somewhat bitter. A good approachable IPA for those unfamiliar with the style. A six pack is good for partying when majority of people are non-beer geeks, but want to try a bit more. Good for your parents, or at least my parents, good for your neighbor, who wants to know what all this ’craft beer’ stuff is all about, good high school kids just wanting to explore beer and don’t know what they like yet, good for that third date you have at home and cook her dinner and she wants to try some of you craft beer, good after long hike. This beer has lots of potential uses.

manuchampions (1235) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 15, 2010
12oz bottle from Firefly in Vancouver. Pours a clear copper with decent head. Carbonation looks, in the glass, to be too high. Aroma is slightly orange citrusy hops with the slightest hint of malt. Taste is not overly complex with sharp, one dimensional hop bite countered by biscuity malt. Mouthfeel is indeed overly carbonated. Finish lingers fairly well but again offers nothing new beyond the same hop note. A fairly generic attempt at a west coast IPA. Also a point docked from Overall due to the amateurish label and box design. Graphics are weak and so little information on the label that I get no sense of the brewer’s intentions here.

turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2010
Bottle. Not quite clear and apricot coloured with small ring and a few pillows. Little lacing. Initial hop aroma is very citric, with heavy malt scent as well. Carbonation is subdued. Taste is a bit more balanced than most IPA’s. Hop bitterness just barely overshadows the medium bodied malt. Hop taste is resinous but not all that bitter for an IPA. Good beer but a little too civilized for an IPA on this coast.

Lady_Bastet (113) - Burlington, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2010
Bottle. Very well balanced with a good amount of malt. Would have enjoyed a bit more bite from an IPA but I’m just quibbling. Medium body with soft carbonation. Long finish with some bitterness at the end. Overall pretty good.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 12/20
JoeZasada (285) - Beaumont, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle. Pours a medium amber, slightly hazy, with a thin white disappearing head. Tastes of hops... slightly bitter, but lots of aromatic and flavoring type hops. Tones of grass, pine, and citrus. Grassy hop aftertaste. Pretty good!

pintbypint (2542) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2009
341ml brown bottle. Hazy gold pour, small bubbly white head with creamy lacing left behind. Sweet citrus aroma, some floral notes. Flavour has biscuity malt underneath a layer of grapefruit hops. Moderate bitter finish with grapefruit aftertaste. Light to medium body, soft carbonation. Decent, but a bit light as an IPA
