BROCKTON IPA is a celebration of our 25th anniversary. Brewed in the style of a Pacific Northwest India Pale Ale, this refreshing IPA is golden coloured and well hopped. It’s destined to become a highlight of this great city, just like its namesake in Stanley Park.

    It's always nice to come across new brands at my grocery store. The owner is about my age and also a beer fan so having variety on his shelves is important for him. Granville Island offers quality products with great finesse and I've enjoyed every try.

    341ml bottle served in a snifter around 6 - 8 degrees:

    Pours quite dense dark copper with bright orange highlights. Carbonation is moderate and finely structured forming a creamy off-white head showing moderate retention. Lacing is rare and coarse.

    The nose is grainy, sweet and floral. Strong caramel malts pair with citrusy and floral hops to give a balanced and inviting aroma.

    On the tongue, the balance between the malts and hops remains. The brew also has great density which adds a lot to the tasting. The finale is somewhat vapory as this full-bodied IPA breaks down slowly on the palate.

    Overall I thought this was an excellent IPA. It's balanced, flavourful and, most importantly, full-bodied. I would try this on with fish or go with the food paring advice found on their site and pair it up with spicy food. Cheers!
