Beer Advent Calendar 2014
From Parallel 49 Brewing out of East Vancouver comes the “Toques Of Hazzard White Imperial IPA”. The beer pours a golden colour with a creamy white head. The aroma consists of floral hops, citrus, grapefruit rind, tropical fruit, earthy and some malt notes. The flavour is of pineapple, citrus, gooseberries, malts, earthy, pine and some mild bitterness. I did not notice any real wheat notes or real yeasty notes that you would expect from a white ale. The beer comes in at 9.2% with an IBU of 76. Like most of the big beer released by Parallel 49 Brewing this is a very good beer.
Commercial Description: An Imperial IPA made with wheat to keep the beer light bodied and a hazy white. Big hop flavours and aromas of tropical fruit and gooseberries from the Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops.
