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.

Hop aroma is mostly whats apparent in the nose but it’s not really strong or anything. There is a bit of a metallic twinge and it’s all very big and soft. Pours with a decent but not too big for the style head, also has a darn good colour to style, golden amber with red hues in the thicker parts. Nice sweet malts meet the tounge and are gradually and evenly met by hops which fade out slowly and show the % for a moment or two before closing it up and out. This is a really smooth drinking and stylistic IPA. Kudos.

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 27, 2011
Poured a slightly orange tinted golden with a thin white head. The head was short lived and left some spotty lacing on the glass. The aroma was floral and a little fruity with some citrus from the hops. Not very assertive. The taste was led by a little caramel from the malts and finished with citrust and earthy hops. It was light to moderate body with moderate carbonation. This was a fairly understated IPA but good nonetheless. As far as Canadian made IPAs go this one beats numerous others I’ve tried.

Review from very early in 2010... maybe even end of 2009. Poured out a thin off white cap with tiny spots on my glass and a standard hazy amber look. The aroma was a downer with some caramel and light citrus and some floral with nothing taking a stand. Yea, that bites. The aroma was straight forward and left no lasting impression. Light and lacking. Taste: light caramel, weak hops for a craft IPA but still, this beer tasted decent enough and is worthy of a stay in the summer cooler. Thin. More of the same. Not feeling this beer even if I could drink a dozen in an hour then puke in my BBQ later on.

DeanF (1716) - Nunavut, CANADA - FEB 18, 2011
Has an okay slightly foggy amber-orange body with small but solid head on top. Aroma is lemon and grass, slight skunkiness. Flavour is lemon and bread with almost no hops, and a dry finish. This is drinkable, but far far less than I expected from an IPA - it’s a Pale Ale that is in serious need of some India.

Deep golden pour with a white head. The nose is lightly hoppy with a kiss of grapefruity citrus character. A little bit of light yeast-derived fruitiness as well. Earthy hop bitterness on the finish. Moderately bitter but the balance is decent. A touch of light caramel mid-palate that adds some sweetness. As it warms up the bitterness picks up quite a bit. It’s pretty tasty stuff.

RobBestwick (595) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 3, 2010
Bottled. Sharp, hoppy aroma. Light copper in colour with an off-white head. Bitter, highly hopped flavour with some nutty notes. Syrupy in texture with a bitter finish.

rosenbergh (7246) - Tampere, 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 (6885) - 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 (3299) - 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.
