Ridgeback IPA comes from the folks at Gray Stone Brewery in Fredericton, New Brunswick. I purchased a 32oz "crowler" of the 6.8% stuff at the brewery. It turned out to be a clear, honey-coloured ale with a sudsy cream head.
Ridgeback packed a sweet and woodsy nose. It's flavour was well-balanced between a sweet and mellow front end and a sticky hop finish that showed off all of the 72 IBUs listed on the can.
This proved to be an agreeable and accessible IPA--really pleasant and nicely made. I'll definitely be buying it again.
Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
