187 On An Undercover Hop – Parallel 49 Brewing

From East Vancouver’s Parallel 49 Brewing comes their latest creation “187 On An Undercover Hop” an Imperial IPA.  The beer pours an orange colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of tropical fruits, melon, floral hops, sweetness and a fairly juicy finish.  The flavour is of tropical fruits, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, melon, citrus, resin, pine, earth and bitterness.  The beer has quite a chewy body.  The alcohol content comes in at 10% with a theoretical IBU of 187.  I was expecting much more bitterness with this beer but it was very tasty!  This is a Double IPA that I could come back to time and again.

Commercial Description:  Heavy on the lupulin, this Imperial IPA has a fruity citrus hop flavour & aroma, backed up by a slight sweet caramel flavour with an alcohol bite.
