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.

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.

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.

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.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2009
Easy drinking IPA. Aroma of hops, grass, and citrus. Lacing is minimal. Pour is a light copperish gold with a small whitish head. Taste is hoppy and grassy. Overall, the hops are not overpowering. Slightly unpleasant aftertaste of bitterness. Overall, great beer. I will buy again if I can find it.

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!

reebtogi (4103) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 5, 2012
341ml bottle pours a golden color with 2 fingers of white head that settles down leaving some thin lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is light cereal grains and pleasing floral hops. Taste is well balanced between the malty sweetness and hop bitterness. This is not a hop bomb, but an easy drinking IPA that will satisfy most but the true hop-heads.

thb (673) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 13, 2012
Pours darkish amber, some head. Aromas are grainy malt with just a hint of caramel/treacle. Hops make their presence known in a floral, fruity, peachy mix. Bitterness/sweetness balance out in a mild bitter finish. Pleasant, easy to drink.

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.

TimE (3108) - 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.
