Unfiltered and light amber coloured, this IPA offers aromatic citrus and green herbal hop scents with lively citrus and tropical fruit flavours over malty and distinctly bitter hoppiness on the finish. A solid, flavourful brew from another newcomer to the Nova Scotia beer scene.
Comes with instructions for use on the can: “Chill, open, repeat.” Reddish amber in colour with nutty, fruity and malty aromas and a light whiff of hops. Robust toasted malt flavour comes with dried fruit and a touch of spice and well-balanced bitterness on the finish.
Aged on lees, it exhibits a copper colour with an amber rim. A subtle nose of dark caramel, toasted malt and a touch of coriander will hit your nose, followed by a powerful wet-cereal aroma as it warms up in the glass. It has a rich taste and a velvety texture. The finish is slightly bitter and has a very good length.
Light brown, hazy from the bottle fermentation. This strong beer exhumes aromas of apricot, yeasts and coriander, and a strong floral (lilac) note develops in the glass. Dense, full, it has a powerful mouthfeel but manages to remain fresh on the palate.
This white beer has an inviting and fresh nose of yeasts, a touch of coriander and a delicate lemony flavour. Without any bitterness, it has a light taste and each gulp is an invitation to take one more.
Complex sweet and slightly sour scents combine with hints of gaminess and traces of subtle spice. Shows some delicacy on the palate despite the relatively high alcohol. Subtle orangey and spicy flavours suggest pairing with Oriental foods.
A sought-after Double IPA is the only beer that Waterbury, Vermont’s Alchemist Brewery makes. Every week when a new batch is released (distribution is limited to a 20-mile radius around Waterbury), long lineups of devotees, often driving in from out-of-state, snag a case or two. Canadians often get their hands on this from beer-loving friends who manage to bring a handful home. Made with a signature house yeast, this unique brew is famous for its rustic character and elegant hopping. The swallow has notes of mint, candy necklace, florals and an oily hop character with a straw-and-burlap thing happening at the finish. If you manage to grab one, indulge by pairing with foie gras.
