Brew Brunswick-Picaroons Yippee IPA

Yippee IPA is a hilarious monicker for this clear, copper-coloured IPA.  However, it's so much more than the name--Yippee is a fine example of a Canadian take on the India pale ale. Topped by a fluffy, cream-coloured head, Yippee is a potent brew with an alcohol content of 6.5%. It leaves lace to spare and features a hoppy aroma that is buttressed by a pleasing whiff of brown sugar.

The brew has a hoppy flavour that is bracing without being overpowering. It's heightened alcohol content is well masked by a complex and enjoyable taste. The brew starts bitterly and finishes bitterly, but some pleasant sweetness nestled in the middle to keep the drinker on his or her toes.  The aftertaste is big and bitter.
Yippee IPA is a fine brew that is likely to be enjoyable to both hop-heads and malt fans alike. Worth a try.

Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
