Imperialist Pig IPA – The Noble Pig Brewhouse

From The Noble Pig Brewhouse in Kamloops comes their “Imperialist Pig IPA” and English IPA.  The beer pours a orange colour with a tan head.  The aroma consists of fruity melon, sweetness and caramel.  The flavour is of caramel, earth, melon, citrus, sweetness and a mild bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 6% with an IBU of 63.  Even with an IBU at 63 this beer is quite low on the bitterness and more reminiscent of an English IPA.  I tend to enjoy hop bombs for IPA’s but I can appreciate what this beer brings to the table.

Commercial Description:  Reminiscent of the beers shipped to India from England in the 1800’s. Heavily hopped with four separate additions of hops. Columbus, Willamette, cascades & styrian goldings.
