From Portland Oregon’s Laurelwood Brewing Co comes their “Workhorse India Pale Ale”. The beer pours an amber colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of citrus, caramel and floral hops. The flavour is of earth, pine, resin, tropical fruits, citrus, caramel, some sweetness and lots of hops bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 7.5% with an IBU of 80. This is a great addition to the growing number of American beers that are showing up in BC now. This beer is full of huge flavour and hits all the right notes for a great IPA.
Commercial Description: Workhorse is, hands down, our biggest seller! This is an extremely well balanced yet super flavorful IPA brewed in the West Coast style. The over-the-top aroma comes from a heavy handed dose of hops in the kettle, hop back, and 2 separate dry-hop additions. A slightly sweet finish helps balance the hop bitterness and creates an ale that is both big on flavor yet remains quite drinkable.
