Fuggles & Warlock – Fusion West Coast IPA

Overview

Fuggles & Warlock – Fusion West Coast IPA Review

With all the styles of beers available in the craft beer world, one thing is for certain: people do love their IPAs. Over the years, we have seen so many IPA trends, including thick and hazy milkshake IPAs that are full of tropical and aromatic hops. While this trend has piqued the interest of non-IPA drinkers, there are those who crave a non-hazy, traditional West Coast style IPA (remember Driftwood’s Fat Tug?). Fuggles & Warlock come to the rescue with their Fusion West Cost IPA.

The beer pours a rich and clear copper colour with a white mousse-like head and very light carbonation. As for aroma and flavour: this is a Fuggles & Warlock beer, so, it can’t be ordinary. The hops used for this beer are Columbus for the bitterness factor and Centennial for the classic pine and citrus–both traditionally used in this style of beer. They also added Strata, a hop that has a unique flavour profile of citrus, tropical and cannabis (dank and herbal). The combination of the 3 hops creates a well balanced and  hop forward IPA. It’s got everything a hop lover wants in a beer, without the haziness.
