IPA – Black Bridge Brewery

From Black Bridge Brewery in Swift Current Saskatchewan comes their “IPA”.  The beer pours a copper colour with an off white head.  The aroma consists of tropical fruits, orange, malts, sweetness and a floral finish.  The flavour is of earthy, caramel, orange, tropical fruit, resin and a low hops bitterness in the finish.  The alcohol content comes in at 7% with an IBU of 62.  With an IBU as high as 62 I would have expected this to be a bitter beer but it really came off more like an English IPA to me.  But I do enjoy and English IPA from time to time and I would recommend giving this beer a try if you are located in Saskatchewan or you have good connections.

Commercial Description: An objectionable IPA, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  An oily mouthfeel and powerful aroma come from large additions of both late and dry hops.  Inspired by the over-the-top IPAs that flow like water throughout the American West Coast.  When possible please enjoy our beer from a glass to experience it fully.  Recommended serving temperature: 45°F/ 7°C.
