Power Slide Double IPA – Parallel 49 Brewing


Pacific Beer Chat

From East Vancouver’s Parallel 49 Brewing comes their “Power Slide Double IPA”.  The beer pours a mildly hazy orange with a white head.  The aroma consists of sweetness, citrus, tropical fruit and some floral hops.  The flavour is of tropical fruit, orange juice, sweetness, citrus rind, some pine and low bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 8%.  This is an interesting one that I found at the brewery.  Think I probably should have gotten more than one can.

Commercial Description:  Nobody’s impress with brake footing down hills with your worn out sneakers.  Turn some heads and shred gnar gnar by busting our a power slide whilst bombing hills.

From Delta’s Stanley Park Brewing comes their new “Salted Watermelon Sour” a Gose part of their Concession Stand mixed pack. The beer pours a cloudy orange with a white head. The aroma consists of watermelon, salt and some sweetness. The flavour is of watermelon, salt, tartness and citrus. This reminds me of a salted watermelon jolly rancher. The alcohol content comes in at 4.1% with an IBU of 5. This probably will not be for everyone but I find this quite refreshing. I would bet this would be a really nice patio sipper. Stanley Park Brewing is now owned by Labbat.
