Brockton IPA (Granville Island)

Brockton IPA (Granville Island)

Ratebeer 3.06 43rd percentile
Beer Advocate B

Taste +4
The nose hints of hoppiness to come, but balanced with caramel and roasted malt. This is a very drinkable IPA. There is just enough pine and floral hops to slightly overpower the caramel sweetness.

Aftertaste +1

Only a trace of alcohol and carbonation tingle carries away the residue of hop bitterness. The pine and floral hints are not overpowering.

Alcohol Content 0 6%

Just on the edge.

Value +1

This is a very drinkable IPA. I have already bought 3 six pack so far.
Ingame Enhancement +1

It is hard to get electricity and WiFi while camping. I did learn that this beer tastes good slightly warm and dirty.

Overall 7/10

It may be argued that IPA's should have a knock-down hop bitterness, but I disagree. I enjoyed this IPA; it has a nice balance between the knock-downs and weakling IPA (Alex Keiths).

Racer 5 IPA and the bailout
Stone IPA
Broken Halo IPA

I actually had this when i was in Victoria in a taste pack and it was pretty good, however I was more impressed with the VI Spyhopper than this one, can you guys do a review on that beer?

Thanks,

PK

I tried this beer in a GI taster pack, however I seemed to have been more in favor of the VI Spyhopper beer.

I would enjoy seeing a review on that beer :)
