Love Triangle IPA
Love Triangle IPA is from the "3 Hop Series" at Toronto's Indie Ale House. According to the barman, this version was brewed using chinook, calypso, and columbus hops varieties. At 6.5%, it's not overwhelming, but not soft either.
This iteration of Love Triangle was a swampy orange grog that arrived with a froth of off-white head. With a heavily bitter citrus nose to greet me, I knew that I was about to be happy man. Love Triangle was nice and flavourful; hops-driven and bitter. Citrus and tropical elements made this IPA fruity and fun, but there were enough IBUs to keep things from getting frivolous. My only real critiques were that the body was a tad thin and that the sweet streak in the finish was a bit too pronounced. Really a very nice little ale.
