From Courtenay BC’s Gladstone Brewing on Vancouver Island comes their “IPA”. The beer pours a copper colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of earth, citrus, resin, pine and sweetness. The flavour is of citrus, fruity, earth, malts and some bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 7% with an IBU of 70. I quite enjoyed this IPA and wish I could have gotten more growler fills while at the brewery!
Commercial Desctiption: A highly bitter beer, with lots of hop flavour and aroma and a higher than average alcohol content that helps to balance the flavour and bitterness of the hops.
