A West Coast take on a Belgian classic. Orange zest and spices provide a citrusy tropical taste playing on top of a crisp light base of wheat and pilsener malt. Magnum, Cascade and Meridian hops add a pleasing punch to the aroma and flavour.

Type: Fruit Beer, Sour Ale

The Tiki Bar Dryhopped Pineapple Sour Ale

This kettle sour was dry hopped and blended with pineapple juice to give a big, fruit explosion of flavour. From the 650ml bottle this beer pours a hazy amber colour with one finger of head that settles leaving no trace behind on the glass. Smelling the beer it is sharp with acidity and a hoppy, tropical fruit tone. The pineapple comes through along side a lemon, passion fruit and guava like aroma. Tasting the beer it is sour up front but that mellows early on. The initial hit of acidity is followed by a mellow sweetness and pineapple flavour that cuts through nicely. For putting a “Butt Load”” of pineapple into this beer the fruit flavour isn’t way over the top but does add a nice, fruit forward kick to a pleasant sour ale.

Alcohol – 6.2%
Size – 650ml

Type: IPA

Market Saturation IPA

Coal Harbour Brewing upgraded their canning line to accommodate tall cans and joined the East Coast IPA craze with their new Market Saturation IPA.  The beer pours from the 473mL can a cloudy yellow colour with two fingers of white head that leave some lacing behind in the glass.  The aroma is of mandarin orange, passion fruit, tropical fruits and wheat.  In the mouth the beer presents flavours of grapefruit and tangerine, along with tropical fruit, pineapple, oats and a slight bitter bite at the end.  This medium to full-bodied IPA drinks very easily with the fruity character leading to a dry, mild bitter finish.

Alcohol – 7.2%
Size – 473mL

Type: India Pale Ale, Rye Ale

Triumph Series Dry Hopped Rye PA

First in the Triumph Series is a Dry Hopped Rye PA. This beer is cloudy and amber in colour and a very thin finger of head settles quickly atop the glass. The aroma is spicy with rye notes along side caramel, orange peel and pine character. Tasting the beer it has very low carbonation and a spicy-hop character. The orange peel notes come through with a piney, resinous character and lead into a pine-bitter finish. With the low carbonation, sweetness emerges more than it would otherwise balancing out the bitterness. The mouthfeel may be a bit lacking but the dry hopping gives this beer a big hit of northwest hop flavour along side a rye spice.

Alcohol – 6%
Size – 650ml
