Gahan 1772

Gahan 1772 hails from Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. It's lovingly crafted by the Gahan Brewery, sold in 500mL bottles, and contains a stalwart 6.5% alcohol. It pours a hazy, reddish orange, capped with a lingering hat of off-white head. It leaves behind some pretty remarkable lace with each sip.

There is a muscly hop aroma which features some grapefruit notes. The nice, warm flavour is largely bitter, but also features a gentle caramel sweetness. There is a great hoppy body and a fairly dry finish.

This is a great I.P.A out of P.E.I. Definitely worth a try, this quality ale has all of the requisite elements of a good India Pale--it's hoppy, decently strong, and delicious.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
