Ascension Triple IPA

<p>There are not a lot of Triple IPAs avaialble in BC and at 11.0% this is a big beer! Coming in a bomber bottle rather than the typical 1000ml bottle Howe Sound&rsquo;s core lineup come in this is a slightly more reasonable package size. From the bomber bottle the Ascension pours as an amber colour with two fingers of dense and heavily lacing head. From the beer comes a big nose of citrus, pine and light caramel notes. Surprisingly the aroma is not all that boozy despite the beer&rsquo;s strength. The beer has a big and smooth body that leads into a fairly boozy flavour. A sweetness is joined with citrus notes, pine tones and a light tropical fruit flavour infusion. As far as IPAs go they don&rsquo;t get much bigger than this but still the flavour is smooth and rather drinkable given the big alcohol content. Howe Sound has turned things up to 11% with the Ascension and there is no turning back!</p>
