Mill Street Brewery Come From Away IPA English IPA at 5.6% ABV | 60 IBU (C$7.00 at Mill Street Brew Pub St. John’s, 945 ml, no bottle date or best before, acquired 7-Sep-2016, reviewed 7-Sep-2016)

Appearance: clear pale amber with one fat finger of rocky off-white head, good retention and light lacing. (4/5) Aroma: berry, citrus, earthy/woody, pale and caramel malt. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate-lively carbonation, short duration clean mildly bitter finish. (3/5)

They call this an E/IPA, but it’s not, really: the carbonation is much higher than is typical for that style, as is the overall bitterness. It’s more balanced towards hops, and there’s some American-ish hopping (Pacific Gem) in there in addition to the more traditional earthy tones. Solid. (14/20)
