It about time for a Lunch Break

This beer reminds me of spring; the label, smell, and taste all scream spring freshness. If you’re looking for a spring beer this one is worth a try.

The Lunch Break ISA smells citrus fresh, it reminds me a lot of Lush’s Happy Hippy body wash but in a less soapy way.

There is not much I can say about this beer so I’m going to keep it simple. There are two big flavours in this beer, hops and citrus. It tastes a lot like it smells. The flavour sits at the tip of your tongue with a fresh and bitter after taste.

If you’re looking for a good, easy to drink ISA this one is a good buy. I prefer the Howe Sound Super Jupiter but this one is good if you can’t find that one or if your one of those weird grapefruit haters- just kidding! You’re not that weird. Overall I wouldn’t say it’s so amazing that I would drink it every day but it’s definitely on my list of beers to keep buying.

Howe Sound Super Jupiter

It’s a little early for summer beers but since the weather has been so nice that’s all I’ve been in the mood for lately.  Super Jupiter is an amazing spring/summer beer. This is only the third beer I’ve had by Howe Sound but it has inspired me to try more.

Size: 1L
Price: $9.95 – Port Moody Liquor Store
IBU: 45
Alc/Vol: 4.5%

I bought this beer purely for the label – Marketing gets me every time!

Super Jupiter smells like your average ISA Sweet Citrus, and hops but the taste is out of this world, I guess that’s why it’s called Super Jupiter.

Super Jupiter starts and ends on a bitter note with and amazing sweet citrus sandwiched in between. The citrus flavours distinctly grapefruit – it tastes like the smell of grapefruit more than the actual taste of the fruit.

I will definitely be buying this beer again and you should too! Make sure you get it while it’s available because this beauty is a spring seasonal.
