Today’s Beer: Night is falling and I’m enjoying Nocturnum, a dark IPA from Strange Fellows. Bright, tropical fruit flavour and aroma is balanced by a light roasted finish from the dark malts. This beer is unexpected, in a good way, which is a common theme with this East Van brewery. I’m glad it comes in 4 packs, the first one disappeared much too quickly!
Today’s Beer: this isn’t the first time I’ve tried this year’s rendition of Cannery Brewing’s Wildfire IPA but the chill in the air tonight reminded me that summer is almost gone and this beer will be unavailable soon. I really enjoy dark beers, and the hops really pair nicely with the roasted malt. Aroma is reminiscent of European hops, flavour starts out smooth and roasted, finishing with a lingering bitter bite. Even better is knowing you’re supporting the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Fund with each bottle. Another good job by the local boys!!
