Artisan IPA - Bowen Island Brewing (Canada - British Columbia - Vancouver) 5.5%
A hoppy aroma of grapefruit and pine, a touch metallic. A shade darker than full gold in a glass with a frothy head. A mild IPA with a pine taste followed by malty, toasty sweetness (really quite sweet, though balanced) and a citrus finish. This is a really nice sessionable IPA: mild tasting but still interesting and true to the style as well as being low enough in alcohol that you can have several.
