From Wheelhouse Brewing in Prince Rupert comes their “Flagship Pale Ale”. The beer pours a copper colour with a head. The aroma consist of a very malty base with floral hops. The flavour is of caramel, citrus, earth and hops bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 5.3% with an IBU of 38. This was a really well made beer and I wish we could buy it in Vancouver!
Commercial Description: Historically, a flagship was the fastest, the biggest and the most heavily armed ship in a fleet. It carried the admiral and his most trusted men. We proudly fly our flag on this West Coast Pale Ale. A fine balance of five different malts and five hop additions, it is fresh and bold with assertive hop aroma and flavour. Worthy of a 21 gun salute.
