COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Letís do the Time Warp - AGAIN!

time warp: noun: 1. what you step into when you step off the ferry on Texada Island; 2. a delicious wet-hopped pale ale

We hand-picked 38 kilos of local hops and added them to the brew immediately to produce this delicious pale ale. Itís not an IPA, but it still packs a big hop punch so prepare for your nose hairs to curl up and let out a happy sigh.

Fresh-hopped beers are designed for immediate enjoyment so do not cellar this one!

Look for it in select private liquor stores on the Sunshine Coast, Vancouver and Vancouver Island and, of course, at the brewery store starting October 1.

But hurry - quantities are limited!

STATS: OG: 13.5 PLATO FG: 2.5 ABV: 5.5% COLOUR EBC: 27 IBU: 35

Ferris (15001) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2016
Draft - Light malts and some grains. Clear gold with a decent white head. Caramel malts and some biscuit. Touch of bitterness in the finish. This is a good English Ale, but I donít get any hops, let alone wet hops.

[email protected], Vancouver. Amber color, off-white. Bitter, hoppy flavor with pine and green pepper, black pepper. Medium body, medium carbonation. Not quite my thing.

Visual: Pours clear pale copper brown with a small foamy head, thin murky layer of retention, half-sticky lacing, a few slow singular streams. Nose: brown sugar, toasted barley malt, (lvl-5)-pungency Attack: slick-creamy, immediate medium bitterness Mid-palate: (lvl-4)-sweetness, subdued mild sour, (MAIN) toasted barley malt, light grassy Finish: hoppy astringent bitter finish. Summary: Mainly a toasted barley malt profile but Iím not liking the astringency in the hops; itís has a bitterness similar to burnt food.

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Hazy dark amber color. A beer with a lean caramel profile, good hopping level, mild fruity touch from the hops, but also a clear buttery hand. Butterscotch aroma, mild.
Drinkable because I donít mind some diacetyl, but it needs some rectification.

Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle, Legacy. Looks quite dark for a pale ale, like a light brown/amber. The head is thin and bubble. The aroma is earthy, fairly chewy. Thereís a lot of malt here, and I wouldnít surprised if wet hops from Texada (didnít know there was a hop farm there, cool) are mild. The taste is malt-forward, with chewy, toasty malts, a bit of biscuit, and even some richer caramelized sugars. The hops are woody, apparent in some bitterness, but not overly strong there, and hardly registering at all in the aroma/taste side of things. The finish is mostly sweeter, chewier malts and a bit of woodiness, along with a vague sense of lingering bitterness. A good amber ale, more or less, with more hop than that description might normally imply. Anyway, "hoppy amberí sounds better than "chewy pale" but you could call it either.

Had on cask with smoked hops version. Great aroma and colour. I liked the smoked hops - gave it a slightly fired up taste that added to the hoppy ale underneath. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lagerboy (2189) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2014
Bomber. Mostly clear darker copper, thin off-white fading foamy head. aroma of medium roast caramel malt. Taste is bittersweet rich caramel malt, slightly fresher herbal evergreen hops, faint grapefruit. Soft carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. Nice sessional ale. NFL (Not for Lagerboys)

3.3
blomster (289) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle. Dark copper pour, minimal head. Aroma is doughy, bready, fruit candy, grassy hops. Taste of caramel, berry jam. Medium bitter. Uncomplicated, drinkable beer.

stantheman (1036) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2013
On tap at Bitter on Hastings in Vancouver. Rather dark for a pale ale. Has good hop bite despite the modest IBU rating. An easy drinking beverage, but nothing to write to Mom about.
