From Steel Toad Brewpub in Vancouver comes their “Kermode West Coast IPA”. The beer pours a pale golden colour with a white head. The aroma consists of tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, sweetness and floral hops. The flavour is of bitterness, lots of resin, caramel, citrus rind, pineapple, citrus and some tropical fruits. The alcohol content comes in at 6.5%. I am loving the new explosion of tasty IPA’s in Vancouver. The IPA scene had been dead for a long time but this one among others proves that there is a a renewed interest in IPA’s and also their quality!
Commercial Description: Big tropical nose and flavour. Clean and crisp malt profile.
