Hopworks Urban Brewery Hopworks Organic IPA American IPA at 6.6% ABV | 75 IBU (C$7.04 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 650 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 23-Feb-2018, reviewed 24-Feb-2018)

Appearance: slightly hazy pale gold with one fat finger of rocky white head, excellent retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus, tropical fruit, floral, bready malt, pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, medium duration moderate bitter finish. (4/5)

I… dunno. This thing has flashes of competence, but overall it just fails to impress somehow. Not quite a classic (old-school) A/IPA, but not quite modern, either. It’s OK, overall, but not memorable. On the other hand, it would be a fine go-to to have in the fridge for company. (15/20)

7.5/10 #ryansbooze
