IPAs keep hopheads happy, especially if they’re loaded with juicy tropical fruit notes like Collective Arts Ransack the Universe (LCBO 450312, 473 mL, $3.45). And a wild ale, like Duchesse de Bourgogne (LCBO 492769, 330 mL, $3.00) will have oenophile friends marvelling over its acidity and black cherry notes.
