The Eldorado Single Hop IPA – Fernie Brewing

From Fernie BC’s Fernie Brewing comes the “The Eldorado Single Hop IPA” a beer part of their IPA series.  The beer pours an orange colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of tropical fruit, lemongrass, floral hops and caramel.  The flavour is of tropical fruits, lemongrass, herbal notes, caramel, leafy, grassy and medium bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 6.8% with an IBU of 75 – 80.  I like a good single hop IPA and this one has enough flavour to not be one dimensional and be quite refreshing!

Commercial Description:  Eldorado Hop is the focus of this single hop IPA. In addition to the stone fruit flavours of the Eldorado Hop, we have added distinctive Lemongrass, to provide a little extra citrus zing.

Fuck Art This Is Architecture – To Øl

I apologies for the language but this is the name of the beer!

Limited Edition “Fuck Art This Is…. Series”

From the Gypsy brewery To Øl out of Denmark comes their “Fuck Art This Is Architecture” a Saison brett brewed at De Proefbrouwerij a brewery located in Belgium.  This Saison pours an orange colour with an off white head.  The aroma consists of mild fruits, gooseberry and some floral hops.  The flavour is of lemongrass, wheat, gooseberry, yest, tea, pepper, Brett, citrus and hops bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 5%.  This is a very tasty sasion although it is a bit understated compared to many saisons.  The name pulled me in and the beer held my attention!  It takes a brave brewer to name their beer this and it shows that they are willing to do their own thing and not care what others think.

Commercial Description:  Fuck Art – This is Architecture is a Table beer or Belgian Pale Ale. It is a massively hopped 5% Pale Ale fermented with brettanomyces, that gives a fat funky ending to this quaffable beer.
