Beach Week Double IPA –  Twin Sails Brewing

From Twin Sails Brewing in Port Moody comes their “Beach Week Double IPA”.  The beer pours a perfect NE Style IPA murky orange with a white head. The aroma consists of tropical fruit, orange and floral hops with an overall juice finish. The flavour is of tropical fruit, pineapple,mango, fruit candies, some citrus rind and a good bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 8.2%. This was anouther awesome release from Twin Sails.

Commercial Description:  Hopped with mostly El Dorado hops with a small amount of Amarillo and Mosaic playing a supporting role, this beer is a straight tropicana juice bomb. If a pineapple, a mango and a beer had a baby, this is the hop chowdery spawn they would create. Two massive dry hops give this beer a huge hop forward aroma and flavour with big notes of pineapple, mango and citrus.


Juice Monkey Tropical IPA – Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub

From Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub in Victoria BC comes the “Juice Monkey Tropical IPA”.  The beer pours a cloudy orange colour with an off white head.  The aroma consists of tons of tropical fruits including pineapple, sweetness and floral hops.  The flavour is of tropical fruit, pineapple, caramel, sweetness, earth and mild bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 6% with an IBU of 45.  This is a pretty good representation of a juice bomb and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Commercial Description:  This juicy, double dry-hopped IPA has a restrained bitterness and a big citrus aroma.  Please juice responsibly.  This beer is brewed in small batches and is best consumed very young due to the volatility of the hop aromas.  Savor not cellar.
