S.Y.C. Brewing Co Fjord NEIPA American IPA at 6% ABV (C$4.41 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 5-Jun-2019, acquired 14-Jun-2019, reviewed 3-Jul-2019)

Appearance: opaque medium gold with two fingers of rocky off-white head, good retention and moderate stringy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: tropical and stone fruit, citrus, pine. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-low bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body falling off slightly watery, moderate-soft carbonation, off-dry medium duration bitter finish. (3/5)

Not surprisingly, the “Fjord” name refers to the Norwegian farmhouse yeast used to brew this, which I guess makes this a Kviek (though they don’t use that term anywhere). I like the hop selection as well, especially the Mosaic and Vic Secret, though I’m not opposed to Bru-1. The carbonation seems a bit low, resulting in it falling off a bit watery towards the end, and the appearance is slightly more “muddy” than “hazy”, but otherwise a pretty decent pint. (15/20)
