Couch Surfer IPA

Couch Surfer IPA, by Toronto's Indie Ale House, is billed as a summer IPA. At just 5%, it's closer to an American pale ale in pop. At the brewpub, my pint arrived topped with a fluffy white head. Beneath that was a sunny, cheery golden ale--more cloudy than hazy.

The stuff has an exotic tropical aroma that carries over into the flavour. There are passion fruit and mango notes, as well as neat and crisp finish. Hops are prevalent but this beer is nowhere near as bitter as a typical craft IPA.

As usual, Indie Ale House delivered a reliable brew with Couchsurfer. Not a standout like Instigator, but a very nice brew. As indicated at the pub, an excellent summer sipper.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
