Lighthouse Brewing Co. – Barnacle Wheat IPA Review
Victoria’s Lighthouse Brewery is the proud creator of the Barnacle Wheat IPA. At 8% ABV this is a strong ale that pours into the glass an golden-orange colour with more than two full fingers of head. The Barnacle smells of orange and lemon with a light hop bitterness tied to it. A mild boozy aroma also creeps through and makes itself known in the aromatic notes. Tasting the beer it is lightly hopped for an IPA with citrus notes, mild wheatiness and a mellow finish. The hop-bitterness strengthens slightly for the denouement but remains mellow and light making for an easy drinking, mild and unique Wheat IPA. Overall this did not have the strength expected but that made for a well-balanced and very enjoyable beer.
