From Bowen Island Brewing now brewed in Kamloops by Kamloops Brewing Company comes their”Artisan IPA”. The beer pours a copper colour with a beige head. The aroma consists of floral and herbal hops with a hint of caramel. The flavour is of herbal hops, caramel, brown sugar sweetness, some mild citrus and mild bitterness. The alchol content comes in at 5.5% with an IBU of 45. This IPA could use some work as its quite low on the flavour compared to most IPA’s but its a good choice on a budget for sure.
Commercial Description: This light golden IPA starts with a hoppy bitterness, followed by a medium level of maltiness and body, finishing with a refreshingly fruity grapefruit flavour.
