S.Y.C. Brewing Co Here We Go Again – American IPA at 7% ABV (C$5.08 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 1-Dec-2019, acquired 9-Jan-2020, reviewed 10-Jan-2020)

Appearance: slightly hazy pale gold with two fingers of loose white head, good retention and moderate spotty lacing. (4/5) Aroma: bright tropical fruit, citrus, pale malt, pine. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-low bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, medium duration mildly warming finish. (4/5)

The label is a cute idea, with 2020 New Year’s resolutions on a two-layer peel-and-reveal setup. Mine was “get a beach body” on the outside, and the steps on the inside were “have a body” and “go to the beach” – dunno if there are other variants, but nice. The beer itself is another solid offering from a brewer who are pretty clearly showing themselves to be reliable. Brewer notes say “double dry-hopped with Citra and Vic Secret” and I’m clearly getting both in the form of bright tropical fruits and citrus. Easy drinking and mildly bitter, with a balanced fruity sweetness. Refreshing and fun to drink. (16/20)
