Yellow Dog Brewing _High 5 Hazy IPA_ American IPA at 6.8% ABV | 50 IBU (C$7.00 draft at Craft Bierhaus Revelstoke, reviewed 27-Jan-2018)

Appearance: opaque pale amber with a short, short-lived white head, moderate stringy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: citrus, pale malt, hint of leafy green weeds. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-low carbonation, short duration moderate bitter finish. (4/5)

Juicy citrus aromas and flavours combined with low carbonation make this very juice-like, but the bitter’s too high to really call it an NEIPA. (That’s not a criticism, just an observation regarding style classification.) Pretty simple, nearly one-dimensional citrus aromas and flavours, and I think I’d like it better right the carbonation were higher, but it’s good stuff as-is. (16/20)
