Yellow Dog Brewing Play Dead IPA: This beer is brewed in Port Moody, BC to a strength of 6.8% abv with 75 IBUs. Their IPA was recently released in tallboy style cans which is the perfect size for a drink like this and can be found in most private liquor stores.
Aroma and Appearance: Play Dead IPA pours a honey golden colour with two fingers of foam and some tiny bubbles. Its aroma consists of caramel, bread, grapefruit, pine resin and tangerine.
Flavour: Fairly straight forward IPA with bread malt up front, lemon, tangerine, citrus and herbs in the middle and a pine resin herbal finish.
Overall Impression: Approachable and tasty, this is a solid go-to style IPA that’s likely perfect for a growler fill fresh out of the keg.
Rating: Very good at 7.5/10, worth a pick up.
Food Pairing: This is a great IPA for spicy food, some spicy chorizo sausage tacos with a fruity pineapple salsa would do the trick.
At their brewery, like many others, they feature food trucks on popular nights. Check out their Instagram account to stay up to date.
