Five BC IPA’s To Ease Into

Four Winds IPA


This is by far my favourite IPA on the list. Four Winds seems to have the secret recipe behind balancing hops with citrus. They won the Silver Medal at the BC Beer Awards for this.

  • ABV: 7%
  • IBU: 70+

Driftwood Fat Tug IPA


This is the IPA you’ll likely find on any menu around town, and for good reason. It has an intense hop profile and will certainly turn anyone off of IPA if they aren’t ready for the hops.

  • ABV: 7%
  • IBU: 80+

Red Racer IPA


Another intense hoppy beer, Central City throws in four different hops to bring out an intense aroma and long lingering finish

  • ABV: 6.5%
  • IBU: 80+

Storm Hurricane IPA/ Basil IPA


Two coming out of Storm for good reason, the Basil IPA is the superior and riskier of the two, but it’s a season and only brewed whenever James feels like it. The Hurricane IPA is available year-round.

  • ABV: 7%
  • IBU: Changes all the damn time
