Strathcona Wild Double Pale Ale
Fresh hop season, it’s the best season of the year for Vancouver craft beer aficionados. Basically all the breweries put together a beer of their own recipe using fresh hops instead of the usual pellets. This creates a more complex flavor in the beer and has a little more flavor and a bit less bitter.
This 6.7% Vancouver craft beer has a lot less bitter component than your usual IPA. It is full of hops from local farmers. It has hints of Citra, Pheonix and Mosaic hops all my favorite food groups.
