IPA – Maple Meadows Brewing Company

From Maple Meadows Brewing Company in Maple Ridge comes their “IPA”.  This India Pale Ale pours a copper colour with a tan head.  The aroma consist of sweet malts and floral hops (probably more but my nose is still failing me).  The flavour is of caramel malts and maybe a hint of toffee with earthy notes, mild fruit notes and some hops bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 6.3% with an IBU of 63.  This IPA hits the mark for an English IPA with a much bitter malt backbone then hops presence.  For a new region to the Craft Beer Revolution this was probably a great direction to go with the IPA.
