High River Brewing Co. Cruis’n High River West Coast IPA – American IPA at 7.0% ABV | 90 IBU (C$3.91 at Collective, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 1-Oct-2021, reviewed 10-Oct-2021)
Appearance: clear pale amber with two fat fingers of rocky pale ivory head, excellent retention and moderate soapy lacing. (5/5) Aroma: caramel, resiny pine, citrus, floral. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering building bitter finish. (4/5)
Old-school WCIPA, but a bit too malt-dominant for my preference. There’s resiny pine, sure, and citrus, but they’re behind the caramel malt. Very pretty, though, and structurally decent. (15/20)
This will be my 5,081st unique Untappd check-in.
