New drinks for all that ales ya

Three newish IPA-style brews hit the LCBO


Le Trou Du Diable La Morsure

Rating NNN

Why I’m no Khaleesi-head (Game Of Thrones, meh), but the dragon on the bottle totally roped me in. The contents are almost as good as the label – this American-IPA-style bière forte from Quebec strikes a balance between caramel and resinous fruit.

Price 600 ml/$6.45

Availability LCBO 355057


Muskoka Detour

Rating NNNN

Why If and when summer arrives, I plan on taking every Detour I stumble across. At only 4.3 per cent ABV, Muskoka’s full-flavour session IPA is a refreshing alternative to the malty water that drives the “light” category.

Price 6 x 355 ml/$13.65

Availability LCBO 375345


Great Lakes Brewery My Bitter Wife

Rating NNNN

Why If you dig hops as much as hatchet-wielding shit disturber and queen of temperance Carrie Nation loathed booze, then this one’s for you. Originally a limited release under GLB’s Tank Ten label, My Bitter Wife is back by popular demand. Citrusy resin and prolonged thirst-sustaining hops – mmmm.

Price 650 ml/$5.95

Availability LCBO 345579
