Origin: Whitehorse, YT
Style: Northwest IPA
Two buddies had an idea as they sat around the fire after a day paddling their canoe. They wanted to build a brewery for the Territory in the North. Something that captured the best spirit of the Yukon and helped to support those who lived and worked there. They decided to brew craft beer. Alan and Bob have changed the gears on the machine a few times, but the same mission has kept them going for nearly 30 years. Today they still operate Yukon Brewing, making good beer and employing good people in Whitehorse to brew it. It’s taken some time, but their beer is starting to make its way across the provinces and even across the oceans, arriving in the beer coolers of all good hearted folk. A dozen craft beers come out of the brewery now (more often in summer time) and each is a Northern take on a classic style. The Conspiracy IPA is an American-style IPA with juicy grapefruit and tropical fruit hints, strong pine resin hops, resulting in a tasty, consistent mix of flavour across the tasting. Serves well at 8°C and should be enjoyed right away.
Pours a golden colour with a clear body and low carbonation. Almost nothing but a few random bubbles rest on top of the glass.
Tough to pull out the fruit from the aroma, it comes across as slightly sweet, muddled fruit without much shape. The hops are clear though, revealing pine and floral character.
Strong fruit flavour up front, the grapefruit and tropical fruits ride out the whole taste. The pine hops support from underneath and very little movement on taste. The mix creates an interesting sweetness like candy sugar and leafy hops. The solid flavour mix remains throughout, slowly fading off to a smooth finish with a slightly sweet aftertaste.
Get into some street tacos with your favourite hot sauce.
