From Granville Island Brewing out of Vancouver comes their new “West Coast Pale Ale”. The beer pours a copper colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of floral hops, melon, citrus and some pine. The flavour is of melon, citrus, caramel, some bread, earth, resin and some leafy bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 5.5% with an IBU of 38. I quite enjoyed this beer. There is a lot of flavour going on in this bottle.
Commercial Description: A malty base topped with light, fruity hops from Australia give this small batch mainstay it’s West Coast personality; outgoing flavour that’s refreshingly laid back.
