Market Saturation IPA – Coal Harbour Brewing Co


From East Vancouver’s Coal Harbour Brewing comes their “Market Saturation IPA” a North East style IPA.  The beer pours a cloudy orange colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of orange, tangarine, tropical fruit and some sweetness.  The flavour is of oranges, tangerines, pineapple, melon, oat, wheat, some resin and citrus rind and some mild bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 7.2%.  This is definitely a North East IPA with a little bit of West Coast flair.  They used similar water profile, hops and malts to try and mimic the NE Style and they definitely made a tasty beer with this one.

Commercial Description:  New beer alert! This one has been a long time in the making but oh so worth it. Market Saturation IPA brings a tropical bouquet of tangerine, pineapple and melon to a full bodied base of barley, wheat & oats. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Cheers!
