Not really a Blonde Ale, not a Pale Ale, not an IPA. Happy Hops is a light colored refreshing ale with a pronounced hop character from the experimental 369 variety (Mosaic).

You may also see a special version of this beer once a year called Happy Hops Harvest, which is brewed with fresh "wet" hops grown locally. Available year round

mcberko (18957) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 27, 2017
On tap at City Beer, pours a hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out dry piney hops and crisp crackery malt. Flavour is dry and fresh, with lots of bitter dry piney hops and a crisp crackery malt backbone. Clean, fresh and easy to drink, but not particularly exciting. Very good.

On tap at The Daily Pint. Crystal clear golden orange with a bright white head and wonderful lace. Biscuity/bready malt aromas with a hint of grain and grassy hops. Flavors are somewhat the same, but the hop bitterness is more pronounced with the maltiness just maintaining a background presence. Light to medium body, nice carbonation, slightly watery mouthfeel, and a clean finish.
