On tap at the brewpub.

Honestly, this one was kind of disappointing. I was hoping for a top-notch IPA. It was grassy from the hops, and bitter enough to be an IPA, but there wasn't as much flavour as I'd expect. If anything, there was a bit of honey flavour and aroma - I sort of wondered if maybe I'd gotten the wrong beer by mistake. Mouthfeel was a bit thin, but crisp. Quite murky, and kind of an orange colour.

Named for the Squamish Valley Hop Raising Company of 1891-1917.

Appearance. Pours a clear rich gold with over two fingers of off-white head.

Smell. Sweet red and bitter yellow grapefruits, a bit of grainy malt and some floral pine.

Taste. Again, sweet red grapefruits and some bitter yellow grapefruit rinds. Some sweetish malts backing it up and some nice pine and grapefruit rind in the finish.

Mouthfeel. Medium body, Smooth and creamy medium carbonation. Very nice.

Overall. A very nice west coast ipa with some good hoppy bitterness but still nicely balanced. Superb mouthfeel.
