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 (588) - 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.

vadie (719) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 17, 2014
Couleur du cuivre pale avec un petit tête blanc. L’arôme du malt avec un peu d’houblon florale. Le goût est du malt non-sucré avec un peu d’houblon et un amertume léger. La brasserie le décrit comme un IPA équilibré, mais je trouve que le malt la domine. Pas équilibré, désolé. C’est facile à boire, mais j’ai de la peine à croire que c’est un IPA, peut-être un pale ale faible.

HippyHop (135) - CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
Basically a hoppier version of their Yukon Gold. Grain and grass and a bit of caramel on the nose. Same on the taste with a hit of nuttiness and a bit of spice. Understated dry finish. Points for being exactly as advertised

robinvboyer (3113) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
Dark amber pour, medium off white head. Very earthy hop aroma, light pine resin, and some slightly sweet caramel malts. Good mouth feel, and good carb. The finish is again, very very earthy, light pine notes.....boring.

MountainSound (4) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2014 does not count
A great beer, but not a great IPA very little hops to it. If it were listed as a Pale Ale it would have been rated much higher, but I went in expecting so much more than it had to give. Similar in flavour to and ISA but far less of the resin bitterness that is so common of the style. Great if you’re just entering into IPAs

JToth (29) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2014
Pours a clear golden colour with almost no head. Fruity malt aroma with very little hops. Taste is quite malty with just slight notes of hops. Almost a stretch to consider this an IPA.

Lagerboy (1237) - 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)

Gold pour with a white head. Nose is stale malts, lacking hops, earth, light florals. Easy palate, cardboard, plain, not much else.

MunBro (372) - 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 (2376) - 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.
