Mount Benson India Pale Ale – White Sails Brewing

From White Sails Brewing in Nanaimo comes their “Mount Benson India Pale Ale”.  The beer pours a copper colour with an off white head.  The aroma consists of tropical fruit, citrus, caramel and floral hops.  The flavour is of tropical fruits, citrus, citrus rind, caramel, earth, some resin and bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 7% with an IBU of 60.  This is quite a refreshing IPA and I hope the bottles make their way across to Vancouver before to long.
