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 (706) - 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.

Not necessary as bad as all the rating. The thing is it just isn’t quite an IPA. More of an EPA. Pours dark golden with ok head. Light bitter finish. Some perfume/potpourri. Easy drinking. Bottle from Manitoba Liquor mart.

Bottle. Clear golden pour without much head. Not a lot going on here in terms of aroma or flavour - pretty thin and light, some slight citrus notes, a little herbal and grassy maybe, slightly metallic. A little on the sweet side, but only because there is very little bitterness. Not exactly terrible, but by no means an IPA.

One of my favourites from Yukon Brewing. Easy drinking IPA with some flavour. One of the best in their line.

manuelMTL (240) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2015
Pours a clear golden with a thin, persisting white head. Nose is citrussy with some malty sweetness. Not very intense. In the mouth it?s caramel malts with some citrus hop flavours. Medium pine bitterness. Light body, easy to drink. Medium carbonation. Could be more hoppy.

Luvystypotables (1234) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Aroma of hops with pine and malt undertones. Clear gold color with a short white well laced head. Mild bland taste with just a hint of hops. Creamy feel with a watery malt finish.

BeerAndPonies (128) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
341 ml bottle purchased singly from Sobeys Liquor and served in a footed pilsner glass. Pours an attractive, clear golden amber with light carbonation and two fingers of light tan, well-retained head that leaves very nice webs of lacing. Aroma is bright and fresh floral, piney hops, with banana and other tropical fragrances, and a light maltiness. The flowery and tropical natures carry through in the flavor, with a small level of menthol-like cooling from the pine (the Ice Fog in the name, perhaps), and the malt rides along in the middle. Mouthfeel has enough weight and is a little dry as the fresh hops linger a moment. Very refreshing and a well-done pale ale altogether.

exeter (482) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2014
It pours a dark apple juice colour with hardly any head and no lacing. The taste leans toward the citrus side of IPA’s. Good for beginners to the style but too sweet for vets.

vadie (1107) - 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 (531) - Quebec, 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

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.
