Hops & Bolts | 24 Days of Beer: Day 16

Day 16 - Hops & Bolts - Creemore

Our beer festival glasses are the perfect size for sharing a Hops & Bolts


Brewery: Creemore Springs
Style: India Pale Lager
ABV: 5.3%      IBU: 60

Hops & Bolts pours a hazy medium brown with a white head that dissipates quickly to a thin ring around the edge of the glass. The nose is well balanced between citrus, tropical hops and toffee malts with some hints of leafy hops underneath.

The flavour of this India Pale Lager starts out  mild with a touch of toffee sweetness and tame almost noble hop flavours. Soon it morphs into a burst of citrus and tropical hops before fading to a dry, bitter finish with a nice touch of toasted grains. More earthy in flavour than aroma, Hops & Bolts has a light mouthfeel and low-medium carbonation.

Greeted with a unique atmosphere and friendly staff, we were happy to see the beer selection was not only quite good but also incredibly affordable: Mondays at the Bar With No Name means $10 pitchers of anything on tap! And with their selection, that is a pretty impressive deal.
