Granville Island Brewery – Urban Legend India Pale Ale Review
Granville island Brewery has released an IPA under the name Urban Legend. While this is not labeled as being part of the Black Notebook series this is definitely a craft beer. A cloudy, golden coloured ale pours out of the glass with a finger and a half of lacing head. This distinct IPA smells of rich piney hops, strong aromatics, and citrus tones. The aroma forecasts a strong, flavourful and creamy beer with some big hops to go with it. The flavour is a great balance starting off with a lightly sweetened, tropical fruit like flavour that leads into a piney, aromatic hop center. A smooth body, mid sweetness and big punch of hops makes for a beer that changes through the tasting in a dynamic and fairly complex IPA. The big hop flavours are mellowed with the sweetness and citrus notes making for a very nice and quite unique west-coast IPA.
