473ml single cans are slowly taking over the shelves of BC private liquor retailers. One such can that is easily spotted being bright pink in colour is the Jerkface 9000 from Parallel 49 Brewing Company. This North West Wheat Ale pours from the tall-can as a crisp, clear golden colour with a finger and a half worth of head. The aroma is not like your typical wheat ale. tropical hop tones give this an aroma of pineapple, mango and citrus while the sheat tones help to soften the sharpness of the fruit notes. The aroma is quite intoxicating. Taking a sip of the beer the fruit notes are right up front and centre. The tropical fruit explosion gives flavours of grapefruit, pineapple and mango that hide the wheatiness of the base beer. The finish gains a mouthfeel more aligned with the wheat ale style and is quite dry. The fruit flavours to linger behind though with a mild hop bitterness. This is a Wheat Ale for IPA lovers. The hop tones take charge and make for a big-flavoured, very enjoyable brew.
