Ascension Triple IPA – Howe Sound Brewing


From Squamish BC’s Howe Sound Brewing comes the “Ascension Triple IPA”.  The beer pours a cloudy deep orange with an off white head.  The aroma consists of melon, tropical fruits, candy sugar, floral hops and alcohol.  The flavour is of melon, tropical fruits, mango, candy sugar, honey, pine, resin, bitterness and alcohol.  The alcohol content comes in at 11% with an IBU of 70.  For the ABV this stuff is ridiculously drinkable. I recommend picking up at least a bottle of this.
