New Scotland Brews--Uncle Leo's IPA
Checking out a liquor store in Halifax,Uncle Leo's IPA lept off the shelf and into my life due to its awesome label--old timey and featuring a dapper gent in suspenders. Bottles are 650mL and contain a clear, honey-hued brew. Brewed in Lyons Brook, Nova Scotia by the Whiffen Brewing Company for Uncle Leo's Brewery, it pours with a chunky cloud of off-white head.
There is a mild, evergreen aroma with a suggestion of boozy warmth, though it only contains 6% alcohol. Flavour, too, is pretty mild. It contains some piney notes and some fruity sweetness, but not much else of note.
Not a bad beer, but not one I'd seek out again. Too mild to be a winning IPA. However, I enjoyed it alright.
Rating: 6.5 out of 10.
