Not sure this is the same beer that Mcberko had, this was well balanced, not exactly a hopheads dream. Also this is a 5.7% American pale ale, not an 8% Imperial IPA stantheman (1098) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2013
On tap at St Augustine’s on The Drive in Vancouver. A very crisp and refreshing hoppy pale ale with nice caramel malts balancing the hop act. Yum! mcberko (18589) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours an opaque cloudy golden orange with a medium beige head. Aroma is very fruity, full of mango and pineapple, resinous hops, and just enough malt backing. Flavour is very dry and bitter, beginning with mangos and pineapple, then transitioning to harshly bitter hops. Finishes on notes of dry bitter hops. Me being a hophead, this is very nice, but I can see how this would be undrinkable to some. Extremely skewed to the hop end of things. Good stuff.
