Belching Beaver Brewery Hoppy Hoppy Night American IPA at 7% ABV | 40 IBU (C$6.29 at Oak & Vine, 473 ml, packaged on 21-Oct-2017, acquired 7-Jan-2018, reviewed 7-Jan-2018)

Appearance: opaque pale gold with two fingers of rocky white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: grapefruit, dank pine, grainy malt, tropical fruit, grass. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry medium duration slightly resiny finish. (4/5)

Decent interpretation of the NE/IPA style, with juicy citrus and dank pine   leading the way. Remains pleasant all the way through to a mildly bitter slightly resiny finish. Could stand to be more bitter on the tongue, if I’m honest, and not as bright as Phantom Bride, but still pretty solid. (16/20)
