The “Hopdemonium IPA” is the latest brew from the new Powell Street Craft Brewery in East Vancouver. The India Pale Ale pours a cloudy orange/amber colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of heavy pine and floral hops with some citrus notes. The flavour is of pine and bitter earthy hops and a slightly sweet citrus. My guess would be that Simcoe® hops were heavily used in this brew. The alcohol content comes in at an 8% and the IBU is 88. This is one great hop bomb of an IPA!
Commercial Description: This Pacific Northwest IPA is packed with so many hops it was hard to keep them all in the kettle. We’ve counterbalanced the intense floral, piney, and citrus hop profile with a strong malt base, giving this ale a wonderful golden colour.
