O’hare’s Beer Club June 2013 Box
From Victoria BC’s Vancouver Island Brewery comes their new limited release “Flying Tanker White IPA”. This White IPA pours an unfiltered golden yellow with a white head. The aroma consists of wheat, yeast, citrus and floral hops. The flavour is of wheat, citrus, yeast and a good hops bitterness to finish it off. The alcohol content comes in at 6.8%. This is a very well balanced beer managing both the white ale and the IPA quite nicely. I would recommend picking up a few bottles of this for a hot summer day!
Commercial Description: Much like Vancouver Island’s aerial firefighters, this twist on a traditional IPA will extinguish your thirst. This Bomber packs a full payload of hop power delivered on target with the smoothness of wheat malt. With a complex hop flavour balanced in flight with notes of fruit and spice, this beer isn’t just for emergencies.
Food Pairing according to O’hare’s Beer Club notes are as follows: BBQ Ribs
