Old Yale Brewing Co. – Sergeant’s IPA Review

In the mix of breweries making their mark on the BC Craft Beer scene is the Old Yale Brewing Co. Their Sergeant’s IPA is a coppery-golden colour that wears a single finger of head. The smell coming off this beer is a bitter-hop joined with a light caramel sweetness. The smell shows no signs of pine or floral notes forecasting a traditional style, well hopped English IPA. The taste starts off with a creamy texture and a formidable hop bitterness. The bitter notes are strong and flavorful but do not overtake the beer. Instead the hop base leads up to a caramel-sweetened finish which balances the initial bitterness quite well. This IPA is a traditional brew that is everything a classic English IPA should be. As Old Yale puts it, ” This beer is for the strong and fearless”
