Canoe Chase IPA – Smugglers’ Trail Caskworks Ltd

From the new Smugglers’ Trail Caskworks Ltd brewed out of Factory Brewing in Vancouver comes their “Canoe Chase IPA”. The beer pours a copper orange with a light tan head. The aroma consists of big floral notes, citrusy, tropical with some caramel notes. The flavour is of some resin and citrus rind, with citrus, tropical fruit, maybe a hint of melon with some caramel and a medium hops bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 6.8% with an IBU of 53.  I can get behind this first release form Smugglers’ Trail for sure.  Lots of flavour to be found all around.

Commercial Description:  Inspired by the true story of audacious 19th Century bandits who outran local authorities by racing upstream on the Fraser River.  Bright. Juicy. Smooth. Refreshing.  Try some before we smuggle it past you.
