Bowen Island Brewing Artisan IPA

You have to love these guys. First they give me a trucker’s hat, then the case has a little card in it asking you to email them and let them know how much you like their IPA.

It’s a lot easier to give a good review when you know they care what you think. It’s also easier when they give you free stuff.

I happen to have great hair, so I am not a hat person, but damn, I also look good in their hat.

Anyhoo, despite the bribe, this beer is really good!

The head was moderate and the colour was amber and brilliantly clear.

The aroma was floral and moderately intense. The taste is really beautifully balanced, floral, and just bitter enough to be interesting.

It’s like watching a sunset in the spring, when it’s just a little cold outside: satisfying, but you don’t want to be out there for too long.
