Overview

Tofino Brewing Hoppin Cretin IPA Review Tofino Brewing Co. – Hoppin’ Cretin IPA Review

Tofino Brewing Co is tucked away on the west coast of Vancouver island and if you keep your eyes open you may just find a bottle at select craft locations speckled around the province. The Hoppin’ Cretin IPA is a pacific northwest style IPA that has a couple of fingers of head. The beer pours an amber colour and smells strongly of citrus and a piney, Cascadian style hop. The taste is smooth and balanced with fruit, citrus, caramel and a distinct pine-hopped bitter flavour. The finish is surprisingly dry given the flavour profile with a fantastically balanced hop finish. Overall this is a great tasting BC beer; if you happen to come across a bottle of this at your local craft retailer pick at least one up and give it a try. The Hoppin’ Cretin is s delicious and authentic BC beer.

    Thanks for the recommendation – there are a lot of smaller breweries in BC becoming available and I’m never sure of the quality. I’ll look to pick one of these up now.

    […] The Hoppin Cretin is as well known for its BC IPA flavour as it is for its label. Playing homage to the Ramones and their hit ‘Cretin Hop’. The tribute to a classic song is nothing compared to what the beer has in store though. A score of 4.63 is well deserved as a classically piney and citrus flavoured IPA. BIg hops, fairly high alcohol and a classically bitter finish, the Hoppin Cretin is the epitome of what has made pacific northwest style IPAs so popular. Read the Hoppin’ Cretin IPA Review […]
