Hazy White IPA – Field House Brewing


From Field House Brewing in Abbotsford comes their “Hazy White IPA”.  The beer pours a hazy orange colour with a white head.  The aroma consisted of orange and general citrus notes but juicy in general with wheat hints.  The flavour is of orange, mild tropical fruits, citrus rind, spices, wheat, mild bitterness and some yeast but not super juicy overall.  The alcohol content comes in at 7% with 30 IBU.  While not super juicy this is a really enjoyable hazy IPA.

Commercial Description:  This juicy wheat beer was infused with the freshly squeezed juice and zest of hundreds of lemons and oranges during multiple stages of the brewing process. Adding hops, juice and coriander during fermentation gives us the extra flavour and hazy appearance that makes this white IPA so luscious.

High Five hazy IPA – Yellow Dog Brewing Company


From the brand new Yellow Dog Brewing Company in Port Moody BC comes their “High Five hazy IPA”.  The beer pours a cloudy orange colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of citrus, citrus rind and floral hops.  The flavour is of citrus, citrus rind, tropical fruit, melon, malts, resin with a good bitterness.  This one is not as juicy as most of the North East IPA style but it has the body.  The alcohol content comes in at 6.8% with an IBU of 50.  I love the explosion of the East Coast IPA on the West Coast as it has breathed new life into the IPA in British Columbia.  This beer while not as juicy as I am used to it is a great beer and full of flavour.
