Hop Head Double IPA: Hop To It

Hop Head Double IPA from the Tree Brewing Company in Kelowna, British Columbia pours a hazy, rusty amber colour with a small, but frothy white head that leaves some thick lacing and settles as a long-lasting collar. This strong ale smells unsurprisingly of a variety of hops. It has a rich, buttery caramel tone, a defined spiciness to the aroma and develops a citrus backing as it warms.

This Limited Edition Beer is Worth Seeking Out

The taste of Hop Head Double IPA is like honey-dipped orange peel with a peppery bite. A grapefruit note comes through in the finish. The beer is creamy on the tongue and the aftertaste is dry and tart, but also has a slightly malty sweetness that helps to keep from puckering. Sometimes the grapefruit and honey flavours produce a pineapple taste, depending on the pour and temperature.

Muskoka Summer Weiss: Let the Sun Shine In

This seasonal offering from the Muskoka Cottage Brewery in beautiful Bracebridge, Ontario pours a nice and hazy amber-orange peel colour with a medium-sized, tight head that falls to a collar after a few minutes. Muskoka Summer Weiss smells extraordinarily fresh and bright. Citrus dominates the aroma and is accompanied by a fatty, buttery banana-like smell, coriander spiciness and honey sweetness.

This Wheat Beer has Excellent Balance

The taste of Muskoka Summer Weiss is just as fresh as the smell. Sweet, toasty and bready malts and citrus are followed by a good dry bite. In a word, it’s outstanding. The beer is very crisp, with a prickly carbonation on the tongue and a smooth, creamy and slightly syrupy aftertaste.
