Skate or Dye Mango ISA – THE PARKSIDE BREWERY


Pacific Beer Chat

From the Parkside Brewery in Port Moody comes their “Skate or Dye Mango ISA:.  The beer pours a murky orange colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of mango, pineapple and an overall juicy hops presence.  The flavour is of mango, pineapple, citrus pith, herbal hops, resin, mild bitterness and some dankness.  The alcohol content comes in at 4.5% with an IBU of 40.  This is probably the best IPA or ISA that Parkside Brewery has produced to date.

Commercial Description:  This hazy tropical treat is bursting with mango upfront followed by hints of passionfruit to follow. Brewed with loads of Glaxy and dry-hopped with Ekuanot & Azacca, it has the perfect lingering bitterness to keep you onboard.

Pacific Beer Chat

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.

Commercial Description: A sweet and salty flavour combination that is a refreshing tasting new summer addition to our Concession Stand mix pack.
