From Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub in Victoria BC comes the “Blue Bridge Double Pale Ale”. The beer pours a cloudy copper colour with a white head with lots of lacing. The aroma consists of floral hops, citrus and some sweetness. The flavour is of orange, citrus, toffee, candied sugar, resin, medium bitterness and some alcohol. The alcohol content comes in at 8.2% with an IBU of 36. I have not had this one in a while and I don’t know why I waited. Well worth picking up some the next time your at the liquor store.
Commercial Description: An emerging new world style, this double pale blends north-west and noble bittering hops and finishes with old world noble aromatic hops to create a complex and floral hop profile. This beer is superbly balanced, masking its strong body and making the beer very drinkable. Beware!
