Cousin Sip and I wrapped up our recent trek through Brewers Row in Port Moody with a visit to Moody Ales, which provided ample seating – inside and out – for customers.
There, I most enjoyed my serving of the company’s Affable IPA. At 6.8% ABV and 60 IBUs, this is not for the beer newbie. Using four different hops, there’s a slightly bitter finish to the beverage. Suggested food pairings include strong cheeses, garlic-heavy foods and fried meat.
The brewery is most proud of the beer’s nose, which they describe as a “piney, fruity, floral bouquet”. Speaking of scents, I like how Moody Ales aroma scale goes from fruit salad to egg salad, with this product obviously on the fruit salad end of the spectrum.
The beer is available in a number of formats, including canned six packs, bomber-sized bottles and even the rare (but becoming more common) crowlers. For those who don’t know, a crowler is a canned serving, equivalent of a growler.
