Review: Bob Magnale Ulrika Eleonora American Pale Ale

Merci again to Stef! Today's sampling is Ulrika Eleonora American Pale Ale by Bob Magnale Artisans Brasseurs out of Acton Vale, QC. All I can tell is that it's an American Pale Ale that tops out a 5.5% ABV.

Appearance: Cloudy, heavy and thick orange body with a moderate off-white head that is pretty thick to start things off but gradually leaves behind a sprinkling of bubbles all over the glass at the end.

Aroma: It's got a sweet and tropical presence that reminds me of their Double NEIPA but this is definitely got more of a bitter hop presence of pine and a light dankness to it. Slight woody, lots of lemon, melon and pineapple.

Taste: Leafy, floral and bitter hop presence. There's a bit of pine, a bit of lemon, orange peel, a tad bit of woodiness, definite sugary sweetness. It's smooth, easy on the palate, I'd like to see a bit more bitterness from the hops.

Overall Thoughts: See the previous sentence, it's decent but needs more bitterness from the hops.. surprisingly sweet.
