COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
ABV in between 4.2% and 4.9%. This excellent brew is our flagship beer. It is a heavily hopped pale ale. India Pale Ales originated during the lengthy colonization of India. British servicemen in India expected beer, however, the styles of the time did not survive the long voyage to India. Brewers quickly discovered that hops acted as preservatives in beer. As such, the heavily hopped ales designed to survive the long trips were born – now known as India Pale Ales.

Aroma doesn’t promise a fantastic beer, but the flavor is a pleasant surprise. Grapefruit and peach balance with a smoky, caramel richness. Microbrewery restaurants are often disappointing. Banff Brewing Co.’s IPA nails it!

Pint on tap at the brewery was listed at 5.4%ABV on the list of beers on their chalkboard in the bar. Pour was a clear golden color with a small white head which left behind a thin lacing. Light floral hop aroma with a hint of grains. Taste is a modest hoppy bitterness with an light sweetness underneath. Finish is very crisp and mouthfeel is decent. This was a surprisingly good IPA which was my favorite of this brewpub.

The aroma is amazing. Tangerine and sweet. The taste let's you down. Bitter citrus and apricot. Dry. Not bad but the smell for me excited for more than the taste delivered. Had this as part of a flight at Banff Brewing.

22oz poured at hotel room in lake Louise. Pours orangish amber color with a thick white head. Smells like orange and floral hops. Tastes sweet with a slight (very slight) finish. Quite good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at brewpub. Golden and clear. Holds on to a small creamy white cap. Nice lace. Sweet orangey hop nose. Taste has biscuity and toasty malt. Grapefruit hop accents. Grapefruit and orange aftertaste. Nice lingering bitterness. Light body and nice mouthfeel. Hard to believe its so light in alc. super drinkable.
