From the newest brewery in Maple Ridge called Ridge Brewing Company comes their “Green Eyes White IPA”. The beer pours an amber colour with a tan head. The aroma consist of sweet malts with some roast and floral and earthy hops. The flavour is of earth, caramel and some roasted malts with sweet citrus, resin, mild pine, grassy and bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 5% with an IBU of 70. Even with the IBU this high I would categorize this as an English IPA as the hops are not dominant compared to most North American IPA’s. This should be a breath of fresh air for those that think IPA’s have gone to far but still quite enjoyable to the hop head like me.
