Beer Advent Calendar 2014
From Parallel 49 Brewing out of East Vancouver comes the “Filthy Dirty IPA”. The IPA pours a cloudy copper colour with a white head. The aroma consists of floral hops, citrus and tropical fruits with a definite pinapple note or two. The flavour is of citrus, tropical fruits, orange, orange rind, malts, resin, pine and a hops bitterness that shines through and almost over everything else. The alcohol content comes in at 7.2% with an IBU of 55 (originally labeled as 75 in Summer). This is a nice IPA and a good successor of the Lord of the Hops.
Commercial Description: It’s time to get down and dirty. This west Coast IPA may be full of filthy amounts of frouty & tropical hop character, but it’s nothing but clean on your palate. All those other IPA’s are a boar. We’re here to hog the spotlight.
