Patina Brewing Co: Juicy IPA


Patina Brewing Co: Juicy IPA Review

Patina Brewing, located out in Port Coquitlam, should be commended for committing to being a Living Wage Organization.  This is an employer that pays enough for staff to live and have a basic standard of living in the community that the company is based, in this case, Port Coquitlam. It is an open secret that working in the craft beer industry is not the way to great riches so any brewery that is willing to better this situation should be supported.  One way to support the living wage of all craft beer employees is to buy some Patina, in this case, the Juicy IPA.

Juicy is orange, cloudy, and has a billowing off-white head.  There is pithy and herbal on the nose with secondary notes of pineapple and peach. It is full-bodied with good carbonation. The first impression is what we old-timers used to call a “hop bomb”. This out-of-date jargon is used to describe big hoppiness throughout the flavour profile, including bittering, flavour, and aroma hops. In the case of Juicy IPA, there is a moderate but present bitterness along with a big hit of hop juiciness. The hops are peach and nectarine but also some hints of herbs and West Coast dank. There is a mild alcohol bite and some residual sugars to balance the hoppiness. The finish is long yet more subdued.
