A Toronto microbrewery has released a limited-edition beer bearing the name of the island.

Bermuda, a double dry-hopped IPA, is available now in bottles at the Bandit Brewery retail store in Toronto’s west end, and at its online shop, which delivers to residents of Ontario.

Bandit’s brewpub featuring a range of beer and food is closed until further notice due to Covid-19.

The 6.5 per cent alcohol by volume thirst-quencher is described on the brewery’s web site.

“By meticulously combining Citra, Galaxy and Mosaic hops, Bermuda shines through with a well-balanced, tropical-forward aroma and hints of citrus.

“Brewed with Pilsner malt, wheat, loads of flaked oats, and our classic New England strain yeast, this extra-hazy IPA has a soft and pleasant mouthfeel.

“A double-dry hop using Cryo hops provides the beer with additional smoothness and gets rid of excess bitterness and undesired hop burn.

“Bursting with mango, pineapple, and sweet citrus aromas, this juicy IPA is round and soft on the palate with a subtle sweetness balanced by a refreshing lightly bitter finish.”

Bandit Brewery is located at 2125 Dundas Street West in the heart of Toronto’s Roncesvalles neighbourhood. See the website at www.banditbrewery.ca
