High Socks Mosaic IPA – Twin Sails Brewing


From Twin Sails Brewing in Port Moody comes their “High Socks Mosaic IPA”.  The beer pours a very cloudy orange with a white head.  The aroma consists of pineapple, dank hops, fruity and floral hops.  The flavour is of pineapple, tropical fruits, dank hops, herbal, resin and bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 7% with an IBU of 45.  Like the beers before this one this is a really tasty beer coming from Twin Sails.

Commercial Description:  100% Mosaic IPA is another one of our single hopped NE style hazy IPAs. This time we used Mosaic, one of our favourite hops. You’ll get big notes of Pineapple and candied tropical fruit followed by some slight resinous, dank flavours. We kept the body big to hold up to the huge flavours of the Mosaic hop and for a beer that clocks in at 7% ABV, it is incredibly crushable.

Shake Your Fruity Milkshake India Pale Ale – R&B Brewing


From Vancouver BC’s R&B Brewing comes the “Shake Your Fruity Milkshake India Pale Ale” the newest beer in their Mount Pleasant Series of beers.  The beer pours a cloudy orange colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of tons of fruit including orange, pineapple and berries with lactose.  The flavour is of lactose, orange, pineapple, tropical fruits, berries, citrus rind, mild resin, earth and some bitterness.  This beer has a ton of body from all of the oats used.  The alcohol content comes in at 7.3% with an IBU of 38.  The Milkshake IPA isn’t for everyone but I am a total convert.  Keep these fruit bombs coming with the nice sweet finish.

Commercial Description:  What is a Milkshake IPA?  It’s not just a clever name — these are hoppy beers, brewed with oats and lactose sugar in order to produce a thick, milky, sweet, and often fruity brew. To the beer world, this brew style resembles a classic milkshake.  Brewed with oats and apple puree for a soft and full body. Primary flavours are of juicy orange and pineapple.

Hot Take Zero IBU IPA – Twin Sails Brewing


From Twin Sails Brewing in Port Moody comes their “Hot Take Zero IBU IPA”.  This IPA has zero IBU do to adding all the hops after the boil.  The beer pours a cloudy yellow with a white head.  The aroma consists of tons of tropical very juicy fruits, sweetness and floral hops.  The flavour is of mango, pineapple, citrus, juicy, caramel with floral and herbal hops but absolutely no bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 7% with an IBU of 0.  This is a really tasty beer but will be very confusing for people that expect a bitter beer when they drink an IPA.  Keep up the amazing experimentation Twin Sails!  This beer is discussed on the new IPA episode of Pacific Beer Chat

Commercial Description:  Hot Take is our Zero IBU IPA. We threw a ton of hops into this beer but managed to keep the IBU at zero by adding all of the hops after the boil. That meant, two huge dry hoppings as well as lupulin powder added during the whirlpool and recirculated during the last dry hop. Doing this allows the beer to keep all of that big fruity hop flavour and aroma with out any of the bitter flavour.
