Strathcona Beer Company – NE IPA Review

Strathcona Beer Company NE IPA CanStrathcona Beer Company in East Vancouver released their new NE IPA. Recent collaborations with Superflux Beer Company seem to have helped them create a winner with this one.   The beer pours a slightly hazy golden orange colour with one finger of off-white head that leaves some lacing behind.  The aroma is of passion fruit, mangoes, and tangerines, along with biscuit malts and some melon.  In the mouth flavours of melon pineapple and citrus couple with other tropical fruits, caramel and a piney finish.  This is a medium to light bodied IPA with a sticky bitterness and a subtle pine finish.

Alcohol – 5.5%
Size – 473mL
