Strathcona Beer Company came out of the gate with their British IPA in their core lineup and for a while no other version of the style seemed forthcoming.  That is until now with the release of their Catching Feathers IPA.  The beer pours a clear golden colour with two fingers of off-white head that leaves behind plenty of lacing.  The aroma is of melon, citrus and pine resin, with a hint of tropical fruits mixing in with biscuit malts.  In the mouth the melon and tropical fruit flavours dominate but are joined by strong bread and biscuit presence.  This medium-bodied IPA is not overly bitter yet presents a nice lingering piney finish.

Alcohol – 6.7%
Size – 473mL
