Paddock Wood 606

Paddock Wood 606 comes from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, where it's brewed by the Paddock Wood Brewing Co.  The India pale ale comes in a 355mL bottle and weighs in at 5.4% alcohol. It's a slightly cloudy brownish amber, topped with a cream coloured head.

It has a powerful, malt-heavy aroma for an IPA, backed with an earthy bitterness.  The flavour contains brown sugar notes and builds to a rich, bitter crescendo.  It's a pretty nice, complicated IPA--606 it well worth your time.

606 was my first brush with a beer from Saskatchewan.  If this is how things are done in the Prairies, I'd be interested in drinking my way to Regina.

Rating:  8.0 out of 10.
