Infamous IPA – Granville Island Brewing

From Granville Island Brewing out of Vancouver comes their new “Infamous IPA” the last in their new Under the Bridge Series.  This series has been created to celebrate the breweries 30th anniversary.  This new recipe was created by the brewmaster Vern Lambourne from the Granville Island location but brewed by the parent company Molson.  The beer pours a copper colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of floral hops, fruity melons and some malts.  The flavour hops bitterness, sweet melons and citrus, grapefruit, malts and mild earth.  The alcohol content comes in at 6% with an IBU of 55.  When it comes to Granville Island Brewing’s standard releases this is at the top of the heap for sure.

Commercial Description:  Granville Island wasn’t always pretty parks and public markets. This place has a tough, gritty past; firetrap factories, shadowy characters, dark dockside tales. A bitter start, and a bright finish – sound familiar? Our-well hopped IPA is a homage to this patchy history, with plenty of Pacific Northwest personality.

Food pairings as per brewery:  Bitterness compliments spicy, fried flavours like curry.  Crispy Ling-Cod Bites, Spiced Lamb Shank with Coconut Lime Basmati, Thai Mussels.
