From Bridge Brewing Company in North Vancouver comes their newest “Side Cut East Coast India Pale Ale”. West Coast meet East Coast. We do IPA’s differently and Bridge Brewing is doing a great job emulating the style. The beer pours a very cloudy deep orange with an off white head. The aroma consists of citrus rind, lemon, dank hops with a floral finish. The flavour is of citrus rind, lemon, grapefruit, tropical fruits, resin, mild bitterness and a mild earth finish. The alcohol content comes in at 7.3% with an IBU of 59. I really like the style of East Coast India Pale Ales with they very cloudy appearance and they fuller body. This one does a great job of mimicking those characteristics while still having some west coast edge.
Commercial Description: This juicy IPA brings a brilliant bitterness with a cloudy appearance. Big notes of peach, tangerine and tropical fruit, followed with a fluffy and full mouthfeel. Our outstanding North East IPA is big on flavor and aroma, with no clarifying agents or filtering for this beer. It is meant to be enjoyed to the fullest!
