Hoppelganger India Pale Ale

Vancouver, British Columbia's R&B Brewing Co. produces Hoppelganger India Pale Ale, a clear golden ale topped with a quickly thinning off-white head. It's aroma kicks off with a dank, malty earthiness and builds to a bitter climax. There's a pretty swampy hop flavour. The initial taste isn't sweet exactly, but has some sugary malt elements and is quite full. This grows into a subterranean, hoppy finish. This isn't my favourite hop flavour, but it's a nice one to encounter once in a while.

Hoppelganger contains 6% alcohol and comes in 650mL bottles. The very cool label states "At more than 45 IBUs ...", which is oddly unspecific.

I found this to be an enjoyable enough beer, but not noteworthy or memorable.

Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
