Green Leaf Brewing Co. – Bitterleaf IPA

The Bitterleaf IPA comes from Lonsdale Quay’s Green Leaf Brewing Company. This North Vancouver based brewery has created a big IPA with a high 79IBUs and an 8% ABV. The beer pours a slightly cloudy copper colour topped with three thick fingers of head. The slow to settle head leaves a thick layer of lacing on the glasses sides. The aroma is sweet with caramel and strong of northwest style, piney hops. Caramel tones balance the equation in a rather smooth way considering the high IBU rating. The flavour has a defined caramel sweetness to it with a touch of burnt tones. The hop bitterness is also rather defined and intense but the sweetness and mild burnt tones make for a smooth and balanced flavour. The Bitterleaf is not your typical BC IPA but it is quite delicious and balances great BC flavours into a complex and very enjoyable IPA.

Alcohol – 8%
IBU – 79
Size – 650ml bottles
