Oops I suck!

WordPress told me that I haven’t posted anything in 2 months, and wow time has gone fast! Finding the time to sit down and write is hard when it’s gorgeous and sunny everyday but since it’s also scorching hot at night I figure why not use the time I should be sleeping.

These last few months while I haven’t been writing, I have been working, beaching, camping, and of course drinking beer. I don’t have any reviews for you because I wasn’t planning on writing this however I do have my top 5 favourite beers of the summer.

1. Yellow Dog Indian Session Belgium Ale – This is my go-to whenever I’m out. If It’s on tap, I’m drinking it.

2. Parallel 49 Apricotopus sour wheat ale- Apricot beer is my usual summer drink but this one is on another level. I wish they would make this all year round!

3. Phillips Electric Unicorn White IPA- If you’re in the mood for an IPA but you don’t want all the bitterness this is the one to go for. It’s light but still tastes like an IPA.

4. Pyramid Apricot wheat ale- This one is a long time summer favourite. It’s easy to drink and embodies summer perfectly.

5. Elysian Superfuzz- How can you say no to a blood orange IPA? I know I can’t.

Those are my top 5, and they were not easy to choose! there are so many amazing beers out there.

What are your favourite summer beers?

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.

Howe Sound– Squamish BC

Super Jupiter ISA    Super Jupiter ISA

Super Jupiter Indian Session Ale

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.
