Super 8-Bit IPA 2014 – Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks

From Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks brewing out of Big River Brewpub in Richmond BC comes their “Super 8-Bit IPA 2014”.  This years batch has been brewed with a bunch of Australian hops as well as a mix of other hops.  The hops included are citra, amarillo, zeus, simcoe, dr. rudi, topaz, ella and green bullet.  The beer pours a cloudy copper colour with a tan head.  The aroma consists of floral hops, fruity, citrus, lemon and caramel.  The flavour is of big caramel, pine, resin, hops bitterness, citrus and tropical fruits.  The alcohol content comes in at 7.3% with an IBU of 69.  This is an awesome IPA and well worth hunting down in Metro Vancouver on tap.

River City Handsome West Coast Belgian IPA – Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks

Well it has happened!  BC has its first Gypsy Brewery!  Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks located in Richmond BC have brewed their first commercial brew.  Dan Fuggles and Tony Warlock are well known in the Home Brewing circles in Metro Vancouver and have struck out on the commercial brewing path.  Their “River City Handsome West Coast Belgian IPA” is a collaboration with Big River Brewpub in South Richmond.  The beer pours a cloudy orange/copper with a creamy white head.  There is some lasting lacing left on the glass.  The aroma consists of melons, fruity esters, sweet malts and floral hops.  The flavour is of big hops up front with sweet melon, citrus, Belgian yeast, pine and hops bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 7.5% with an IBU of 68.  This is a very tasty brew to be sure.  There is a great balance of sweetness from the malts and fruit esters with the hops bitterness.

Commercial Description:  We have merged two beautiful styles, a lovely peachy grapefruity West Coast IPA with the complex spicy characteristics of a Belgian IPA, this “hop juice” weighs in at 7.5% ABV and 68 IBU and is hopped with Centennial, Citra, Amarillo, and Dry Hopped with even more Citra and Amarillo..
