Moon Under Water Brewery
Victoria, British Columbia
IPA (India Pale Ale)
6.5% on the bottle, 5.2% on their website (which one??)
To me it's seems more towards 5.2%
I've never heard of this brewery/pub. Am I out of the loop? I don't think so. Once again folks my selection for this week's beer proves a point. That point?... Labeling. I went into the liquor so my buddy can grab something and as I was walking by, this label caught my eye. So I picked up the bottle and realized that I've never heard of it. So what do I do? Snatched it up of course and now it's on my blog.
I love the smell of this beer because it's inviting and not overpowering. Just has a really good citrus aroma. Just smelling it, you know that this beer is going to be a good one. The taste, to me, is fantastic. It has a medium hop flavor combined with a light malt taste making this beer really well balanced. It's really smooth, crispy and has a slight bitterness to the aftertaste. I can drink this beer all day because it's oddly refreshing. Who would think of it being that way? It has 70 IBU's (not killer or in your face and not weak like Keith's IPA) and is dry hopped..... and refreshing.
Oh by the way.....Keith's IPA isn't really an IPA. They're faking it.
