Brasserie Dunham Tropicale IPA American IPA at 6.2% ABV (C$16.20 at The Brewer’s Apprentice, 750 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 14-Mar-2018, reviewed 16-Mar-2018)

Appearance: cloudy straw with a massive loose white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: juicy citrus, tropical fruit, mild leather and horseblankety funk. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, light funky tart. (9/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly sweetish mildly funky finish. (4/5)

I really like this – it totally reminds me of the Mathilda beermosas I made a couple of Xmases ago. I mean, even the big foamy head is the same. The only real difference is that there’s a tropical fruit note present in addition to the juicy citrus. If you’re a fiend for Brett the way I am, you’ll enjoy this. (17/20)

8.5/10 #ryansbooze
