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.

RobBestwick (583) - Calgary, Alberta, - 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.

Lagerboy (1172) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2014
341 ml bottle. Unclear orange, not much head. Muted aroma of mild pale malt and floral hop. Buttery malt, British hop taste, slightly floral and herbal, some citrus and fruit and caramel. Soft carbonation, lighter than medium bodied, moderately hopped. Nice enough for a UK IPA, a bit lifeless and dull. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

MunBro (229) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 19, 2013
Pours the color of a nice ripe peach. No head at all on my pour. Aroma is a bit flowery and hoppy. Tastes of hops, malts, earthy tones too. All in all a decent beer.

cfrancis (2249) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2013
Middle of the road ipa. Thanks to reimer for this. Pours golden with a moderate white top. Aroma is pine hops and a small vegetal and medicinal. Taste is somewhat stale pine hop bitterness with grainy malt backing.

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

Masterkush7 (494) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 18, 2013
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 (1039) - 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.

Ferris (2943) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
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
