Wild Rose Brewery Industrial Park Ale – American IPA at 6% ABV | 60 IBU

Wild Rose Brewery Industrial Park Ale – American IPA at 6% ABV | 60 IBU (C$3.37 at Crowfoot Liquor Heritage Pointe, 473 ml, packaged on 15-Jun-2020, acquired 11-Sep-2020, reviewed 15-Sep-2020)

Appearance: slightly hazy pale gold with two fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and well-defined soapy lacing. (5/5) Aroma: pithy grapefruit, resiny pine, caramel, tropical fruit, floral. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry moderate bitter finish. (4/5)

I like this – it’s “old school” without being too “old fashioned”. The label says there’s “just enough hops perfectly balanced with malt”, which I expected to result in something that was too malty for my preference, but that’s actually not the case, and I am forced to agree that the balance is pretty bang-on. Pretty drinkable despite the higher IBUs, verging on crisp, with a pleasant off-dry finish. (16/20)
