Overview

Tofino Brewing Hoppin Cretin IPA Review Tofino Brewing Co. – Hoppin’ Cretin IPA Review

Tofino Brewing Co is tucked away on the west coast of Vancouver island and if you keep your eyes open you may just find a bottle at select craft locations speckled around the province. The Hoppin’ Cretin IPA is a pacific northwest style IPA that has a couple of fingers of head. The beer pours an amber colour and smells strongly of citrus and a piney, Cascadian style hop. The taste is smooth and balanced with fruit, citrus, caramel and a distinct pine-hopped bitter flavour. The finish is surprisingly dry given the flavour profile with a fantastically balanced hop finish. Overall this is a great tasting BC beer; if you happen to come across a bottle of this at your local craft retailer pick at least one up and give it a try. The Hoppin’ Cretin is s delicious and authentic BC beer.

    I have been meaning to get a hold of some of their beer for a while now. This sounds tasty!

    Thanks for the recommendation – there are a lot of smaller breweries in BC becoming available and I’m never sure of the quality. I’ll look to pick one of these up now.
