From the new brewery on the block in Whistler BC Coast Mountain Brewing comes their “Surveyor IPA”. The beer is named in honor of Kevin Winter’s father that is a retired Surveyor. The beer pours a deep orange to copper colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of tropical fruits, goose berries, malts, pine, dank hops and a floral finish. The flavour is of pine, resin, melon and pineapple and tropical fruits although not strong with hops bitterness, earth and some dankness in the finish. The alcohol content comes in at 7% with an IBU of 68. The IPA market had been seriously stagnant in BC but luckily there seems to be a new IPA renascence in the province and this one is on the leading edge. I am really stoked to see IPA’s take on a new prominence!
Commercial Description: Our Signature IPA at 7% ABV and 68IBUs is a massive hop-forward ale, built with solid structure to showcase the hops that shine in this Pacific North West IPA. Columbus, Chinook,Ekuanot & Citra drive the hop flavour. We poured so much love into this the Brewmaster’s favourite.
