Strathcona Beer Company in East Vancouver BC has released a new Northwest Pale Ale.
They describe it as being a refreshing hop-forward ale, with deep gold colouring and a balanced malt finish. It features Phoenix, Cascade and New Zealand Wakatu hops, so I would imagine it would have a floral nose with notes of citrus, pine, chocolate and molasses (just a guess).
It is available now at the Strathcona tasting room and at select retailer partners.
Stats: 5.1 % ABV; 55 IBUs.
