Howe Sound Brewing – West Coast India Pale Ale Review

Howe Sound Brewing knows how to make an IPA and the latest to fit into the hopped category is the West Coast India Pale Ale. This slightly cloudy ale pours a light golden-copper colour with two plus fingers of lacing head.The smell is lightly sweetened along side a distinct Cascadian hop. Notes of mango and passion fruit also come through in the nose giving a floral sweetness. When tasting the start is mellow building to a well hopped mid section along side the floral notes and mango tones. The bitterness is strong but not too intense leaving a pleasantly hopped finish that reaches to the back of the throat and lingers. Yet another fantastic IPA from the Howe Sound Brewery. Keep ’em coming!
