Victoria’s Driftwood Brewery has released another IPA, this one of the Rye IPA variety. From the fancifully labbeled bottle, this beer is a colour of light amber with two and a half fingers of lacing head atop the liquid. The aroma has an element of classic IPA flavours  including pine notes and citrus character but with it comes the tropical tones of Cashmere hops including lime and a distinct honeydew melon character. The Rye character also comes through on the nose in a mellow spice note. Tasting the beer it is full of delicious melon character. The fruit notes from the hops give a strong and delicious twist which masks much of the Rye character. This ain’t no fat tug, the Limb from Limb is a fruit-forward, low-bitterness IPA that uses all BC grown hops.

Alcohol – 7.0%
Size – 650ml
