104/3084) Home:  Textbook IPA by Badlands Brewing of Ontario:  **1/2; 6.5%; bottled two days ago; brewed with Citra and Mosaic hops, oats and an English yeast strain; nose of grapefruit; bitter grapefruit and citrus flavours;

105/3085) Home:  Broad Reach Nor'Easter IPA by Stonehooker Brewing Company of Ontario:  **; 5.4%;  mildly hazy; tropical and citrus nose; juicy and citrusy;

Stonehooker is located in Mississauga, the Port Credit region, I think.  This beer is readily found in Mississauga Beer Stores.

The tin explains that stonehooking is a long lost trade involving quarrying the bottom of Lake Ontario with rakes and claws to retrieve stones which today make up the foundations of many historic buildings in the town of York, now known as Toronto.  I like it when two great interests of mine, beer and history, come together.
