Victoria Caledonian Brewery & Distillery Twa Dogs – Drouthy Neibor IPA Review

New Caledonia - Twa Dogs Drouthy Neibor IPA ReviewThe Victoria Caledonian Brewery & Distillery’s beer brand is called Twa Dogs and their IPA is named the Drouthy Neibor IPA. This beer comes in 355ml bottles and translated the beer’s name means “The Thirsty Neighbour”. Pouring this beer it is a slightly hazed golden colour with a finger and a half of head which leaves light lacing behind on the glass. Smelling the beer it is a balance of malt character and citrus-pine hop tones. The smell is crisp, fresh, a slight bit boozy and true of a classic West Coast IPA. Sipping the beer, fresh citrus notes come up front and lead into a light pine character. The hops are prominent but a lightly toasted malt character has a touch of sweetness that balances the hop bitterness and higher than typical alcohol levels. This beer may not stand out from a crows as being overly unique but it is true to style, well crafted and very tasty. The Drouthy Neibor is worth seeking out to give a try!

Alcohol – 7.0%
Size – 355ml bottle
