Yukon Brewing Company Double IPA – American Double / Imperial IPA at 8% ABV | 75 IBU (C$4.35 at Collective, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 14-May-2020, reviewed 16-May-2020)

Appearance: hazy pale amber with one finger of loose off-white head diminishing rapidly to a thin ring, spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: grapefruit, pine, bready malt. (7/10) Taste: high bitter, moderate sweet. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry bitter finish. (4/5)

These guys will always have a special place in my heart, because I literally once stepped off a chartered helicopter, checked my work gear at CYXY, and then did their brewery tour, before hopping a commercial flight back to “civilization” at CYYC. The two nights immediately prior to that, I, a work partner, and our helicopter pilot (no lie: I literally drank the guy – whose safety was our priority – under the table) drank the entire town of Watson Lake (YK) dry of beer while staying at “A Nice Motel” (it really wasn’t) and it really doesn’t get much more fun than that. I would have stepped over any family member you’d care to name for one of these that night, but, well, as I pointed out, we had already drunk the town dry. Good fun. (14/20)
