Today’s Beer: this IPA from Red Collar is not your typical IPA. Described as an English style IPA it is more malt focused and less intensely hoppy than the West Coast IPAs I’m used to. That’s not to say it’s lacking in flavour, the malts balance spicey citrus bite from the Galaxy and Ella hops. I met JP from the brewery the other night at the CAMRA SOK meeting and had a good chat about the drink local trend and how that’s changing the approach to brewing in BC. I am looking forward to checking out their Kamloops brewery in person later this spring!
