Barkerville Wandering Camel IPA

barkerville_ioaBrewer: Barkerville Brewing, Quesnel, BC
Style: India Pale Ale
ABV: 6.5%
IBUs: 48

Description: Names in honor of the camels that brought supplies to Barkerville during the Gold Rush, this IPA is part of the brewery’s regular lineup. Brewed in the style of an English India Pale Ale, this brew is unfiltered and is bittered with (what I assume are) Chinook and Centennial hops.

Tasting Notes: This IPA was a nice change of pace, as it was not too heavy in either the malt or hop department. The crisp malt are nicely balanced with notes of pine, citrus, and tropical fruit, creating an IPA that is just strong enough while still being quite quaffable.

Appearance: Golden-orange, cloudy, good foam retention and carbonation
Nose: Crisp malt, floral hops, notes of citrus and pine
Taste: Crisp malt, hint of passion fruit, strong citrus, grapefruit and pine notes
Aftertaste: Lingering hop bitterness, pine and citrus rind
Overall: 8/10
