Howe Sound Brewing knows how to make an IPA and the latest to fit into the hopped category is the West Coast India Pale Ale. This slightly cloudy ale pours a light golden-copper colour with two plus fingers of lacing head.The smell is lightly sweetened along side a distinct Cascadian hop. Notes of mango and passion fruit also come through in the nose giving a floral sweetness. When tasting the start is mellow building to a well hopped mid section along side the floral notes and mango tones. The bitterness is strong but not too intense leaving a pleasantly hopped finish that reaches to the back of the throat and lingers. Yet another fantastic IPA from the Howe Sound Brewery.
