After a long voyage from Austarlia, I brought the family to Whistler for a few days of relaxation to recover from the jet-lag. I always get my ass kicked by jet lag when I return from Australia. The combination of fatigue, the change of hours, and the the darkness of Vancouver in deep winter is always hard on me and the family. It is harder still when you have a toddler with jet lag as well.
When I do fall asleep at night, invariably, my three year old will be awake, asking me to go to the park. At three in the morning. Bloody hell!
On the up-side this beer was phenomenal. I always give extra marks to an organic beer. I eat everything organic… just about, so why not beer, I say?
The Hopworks Urban Brewery IPA Organic Beer has an excellent, persistent head, foggy amber colour, and a mild citrus aroma. It has a moderately intense citrus taste with a hint of pine. It has a thick texture, and a mild hoppy taste that just nibbles at you. The sweetness in the aftertaste washes away any bite.
