Description: As part of their year round series, the India Pale Ale is the first beer to be released since their initial lineup. In addition to what is surely Pale and Crystal (as well as Rye) malts, it is generously hopped with Galaxy and other West Coast strains.

Tasting Notes: This beer is my latest sampling from the Deep Cove Brewery, and came highly recommended to me by the good staff at my local beer store. And they certainly knew what they were talking about! This IPA comes in with some nice, smooth malt, a good dose of citrus and tropical hop flavor, and a nice hint of rye that manages to smooth and round out the flavor.

Appearance: Amber-orange, slightly cloudy, good foam retention and carbonation
Nose: Good malt, citrus hops, passion fruit, pineapple and rye
Taste: Smooth malt, good tang, tangerine, passion fruit, pineapple
Aftertaste: Lingering hop bitterness and notes of tropical fruit
Overall: 9/10
