Notes/Commercial Description:
Brockton IPA is a celebration of our 25th anniversary. Brewed in the style of a Pacific Northwest India Pale Ale, this refreshing IPA is golden coloured and well hopped. It’s destined to become a highlight of this great city, just like its namesake in Stanley Park.

Not bad. Not great. More grassy than most IPAs.

Granville Island IPA. Lots of expectation.
The look of it, you have that yellow, orange color.
The smell of it you have that typical IPA flavour coming out.
The taste of it is really enjoyable. Much better than those Alexander Keith IPA. I don t know much about IPA but this i better than others.
So overall would I recommend it ? Sure. I mean Im not a use fan of the IPA but once in a while you get take it a give it a try to the Granville Island IPA. This is much better than others on the market.

Another warrior holding ground in the current Granville Island "tap takeover" at Beer Revolution. Quite a light color for the style, a golden amber hue with about an inch or so of white foam. Aroma is notably grassy, weedy, and herbal, with some co-occurring powered sugar and citrus rind to provide a modicum of balance. Palate was again quite green and bitter, with mellow grapefruit rind, nondescript tropical fruit, lemon, gooseberry, assertive catty pine sap, dill pickle, green tomato, and apple pomace detectable to varying degrees. The dank, almost rank sap, weed and green vegetable hop flavors are center stage. There is some toasty malt in the background along with a cardboard-type oxidized off-flavor that thankfully is not overpowering. Dry and fizzy, with a flinty earthy finish. The hops flavors are interesting here and rather hard to describe verbally. The whole package tastes like an earthy tomato garden drizzled with pine needles and citrus peels. Enjoyable for Cascade fans and those who enjoy bitter medicinal resin flavors unencumbered by too much sweetness. Reminds me of Wild Rose IPA although I prefer the latter.
