Hops and Robbers IPA
Hops and Robbers arrived a faintly cloudy brass colour, topped with a moderate layer of eggshell head. It had only light carbonation and an aroma that was both floral and citrus-y. The flavour goes sweet to bitter, kicking off with notes of caramel and stone fruit and then easing into a burly bitter finish.
Hops and Robbers is bitter, without being overpowering. In my opinion, it's more of an English style IPA than a West Coast style. Very interesting new Ontario craft brew; one well worth seeking out.
Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
