Matron Fine Beer
355ml DANKY IPA
Let’s just say our brewers have put in their 10,000 hours when it comes to making IPAs. While chatting in the brewery one evening, they agreed that they were both nostalgic for those IPAs of yesteryears (think 2010’s) and decided it was time to brew a nod to what first ignited their love of craft beer, the west coast IPA.
Danky introduces itself with a burst of aroma, we’re talking a bouquet of floral, fresh herbs and strawberry kush. Upon first sip this beautiful, rich, orange-hued ale greets you with a succulent citrus experience that evolves into a fruity, sweet kiss with gentle undertones of an earthy, piney dankness. This beer really is all about precise bitterness and heavy aromatics. Its sturdy malt backbone adds richness without being sweet or cloying, ultimately ending on a dry note, its clean finish leaves you with a pleasant lingering hop flavour.
We worked with Pleasant Valley’s (Prince Edward County) Cascade hops, supported by Simcoe + Strata for a classic flavour with a modern spin. Brewed with Barn Owl’s Pale and Munich malt for depth and colour, we sprinkled in a light touch of oats and wheat for body but kept the haziness in check. No caramel malt was harmed in the making of this ale.
