Formerly Machine Ales, this small Vancouver-based brewery had to change their name due to a copyright issue. Happyness is the juicy IPA of the moment that west coast beer lovers are queuing up for. It’s juicy in every way, from its dried apricot hue to its full body and fruity aromas like orange rind and ripe mango bursting from the glass. Expect to taste apricot, sweet carrots, grapefruit rind and pine with a prickly carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a big, bitter finish. Take it out of the fridge for 15 minutes to let the beer warm up a little; you’ll miss out on the flavour complexity if you drink it ice-cold.
