Twin Sails Parallel 49 Collaboration How Bout That CanTwin Sails and Parallel 49 Collaboration How Bout That Triple IPA Review

Twin Sails Brewing Company in Port Moody have teamed up with Parallel 49 Brewing of Vancouver for this collaboration Triple IPA brewed on site at the Twin Sails brewery.  The beer pours from the 473mL can a clear golden colour with two fingers of white head that leaves some lacing behind in the glass.  How Bout That produces a strong aroma of mango, peach, guava, and passion fruit, along with a floral note and some banana.  In the mouth the flavour is strongly of sweet, ripe mangoes, coupled with stone fruit, pineapple and caramel.  There are melon tones that creep in along with resin, bitterness, and a lingering boozy hit.  How Bout That is surprisingly light in the mouth but produces a thicker reisidual bitterness and alcohol heat than the initial flavours would suggest.  Be careful as this triple IPA is surprisingly easy to drink for a beer that comes in at 11% ABV.

Alcohol – 11%
IBU –  60
Hops – Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe
Size – 473mL

    You are right as it warms up the alcohol becomes more obvious but when this is between fridge and cellar temp it is so deceptive. You could accidently drink far to much of this in one sitting. It is an amazingly smooth beer for 11%
