Beer Advent Calendar 2014
From Vancouver’s Parallel 49 comes the “Gypsy Tears Ruby Ale” an amber ale. The beer has a coppery appearance with a small white head. The beer has a slightly sweet and floral hops aroma (almost earthy) caramel, toffee and some fruitiness. The taste of the beer is fairly heavy malts with a good sweet citrus and caramel, hops bitterness and maybe some dark fruits that builds. The beer sits at 6% alcohol and has an IBU of 40. I have not come to the conclusion that Parallel 49 just makes good beer no matter what one you pick up it will be great!
Commercial Desciption: A ruby red coloured ale with a rich caramel malt flavour and a burst of West Coast hops. Using only late hop additions and dry-hopping, the bitterness is restrained while the hop flavour and aroma are pronounced.
