GIB Two Tides India Session Ale

GIB Two Tides India Pale AleGranville Island Brewing Two Tides India Pale Ale

One of GIB’s more recent additions is the Two Tides India Pale Ale is a excellent beer for those who are new to the IPA category. Typical Pacific Northwest IPAs are hops heavy and tend to turn off newbies from this wonderful style of beer. GIB has done an excellent job with the labels of there beers, the backside of the bottle has info on colour, IBUs, and even a suggested food pairing. When poured, the liquid is a delectable rich golden colour with a nice tight, white head which receded quickly. A gentle hop aroma draws one in to your first taste. Sweet malts are chased with subtle hoppy bitternes.

Rating: 4/5 A nicely balanced IPA that went down way too easy on this hot summer afternoon.
