From Steamworks Brewing in Burnaby BC comes their “Battleship Double IPA”.  The beer pours a slightly cloudy amber colour with an off white head.  The aroma consists of tropical fruit, pineapple, tropical candies and a sweet sugary finish.  The flavour is of tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, mango candy, grain, some mild resin, citrus pith and a medium bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in  at 8.9% with an IBU of 65.

Commercial Description:  Battleship is loaded with juicy hops that pack a punch. A bright nose leads to big tropical fruit flavours and a full mouthfeel. This nautical vessel of destruction has been dry hopped not one, but two times, giving it big hop flavour with fantastic balance and drinkability despite its bold appearance and high ABV.
