Four Winds Brewing – India Pale Ale Review
In Four Winds bottled lineup comes an IPA as one of three initial beers released in 330ml bottles and sold in four packs. This IPA appears an amber colour in the glass with a touch of sediment clouding the beer. Topped with three fingers of head the Four Winds IPA smells rich with northwest hops, a light caramel note and a crisp, refreshing malt. The flavour is light and smooth, starting off with a creamy, slightly oily texture the start is a strong pine without a lo of hop bitterness to go with it. This pine flavour is paired with a caramel sweetness that leads up to a hop-bitter finish. The hops are very defined but do not have the punch you may expect at 70 IBU. As four Winds always seems to accomplish this is an unique, extremely well balanced and extremely delicious beer. Another fantastic option from Delta’s Four Winds Brewing.
