Prince Edward Island Brewing Company Gahan Snow Bird Juicy IPA – American IPA at 6% ABV

Prince Edward Island Brewing Company Gahan Snow Bird Juicy IPA American IPA at 6% ABV (C$3.83 at NLC Stavanger, 473 ml, packaged on 12-Sep-2018, acquired 20-Dec-2018, reviewed 25-Dec-2018)

Appearance: opaque pale gold with one fat finger of fluffy off-white head, good retention and spotty lacing. (4/5) Aroma: tropical fruit, citrus, caramel. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry mild bitter finish. (4/5)

A surprisingly competent rendition of the style. I’d like to see brighter citrus on both the nose and the tongue, but given it was packaged in September, it might well have faded. Pretty serviceable as-is, but I’d like to try it fresher. (16/20)
