Lake of Bays Brewing Company 10 Point India Pale Ale American IPA at 6% ABV (C$3.34 at NLC Stavanger, 473 ml, bottle date 25-Jan-2016, reviewed 4-Apr-2016)

Appearance: clear pale to medium amber with one fat finger of fluffy ivory head, good retention and moderate lacing. (3/5) Aroma: resiny pine, pithy grapefruit, pale malt, tropical fruit. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter finish. (3/5)

Much better than their Crosswind Pale Ale. Actually a halfway decent example of an American IPA, with piney and citrusy hops leading the way over just enough pale malt to balance. Ends with a lingering resiny bitter finish. A little rough around the edges, perhaps, but a solid performer. (14/20)
