Style | ABV
English India Pale Ale (IPA) |  7.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Standing firmly on the east coast end of American IPAs, our India Pale Ale emphasizes balance. An insistent malt character from traditional floor-malted English barley harmonizes with a generous amount of Chinook and Amarillo hops. Fruity and aromatic, our IPA is perfectly balanced.

Thanks to Crabbicuss for another one! No freshness info. Enjoyed on 08/21/11.

A - Pours a clear, good looking copper color with a one finger white head. Leaves decent lacing.

S - Citrusy hops and pale caramel malts. Classic English IPA, not overly bitter. Well done.

A - Similar to the nose. Caramel sweetness is present throughout. Toward the back, a nice citrusy bitterness comes through. Finishes very clean with a good mild sweetness.

M - Medium bodied with pretty high carbonation. Very drinkable.

O - Overall, this is a well done EIPA. Very balanced, drinkable, and enjoyable.

Notes are from 5/26

It's a dark one, almost a brown-orange-red with a fiery flare in the recesses and a brighter amber gleam outside. The head is an off-white cap just shorter than half a finger, but it keeps up well and leaves behind pretty good lace.
It has a sort of hybrid tone to it, seeming to incorporate the earthy, spicy, woody/leafy bitterness with brighter citrus and not-quite-dank notes along with lots of yeasty esters giving off dark fruits as well as almost tropical under the danker/earthier stuff. There's also just a twinge of alcohol noted with every sniff and sip, but nothing too heavily ethanolic to enjoy the overall very much.
There's a sort of earthy dankness that even translates to the feel, though it doesn't weigh down the medium body or take away from the brightness that also translates. Crispness comes out strong on the palate from front to back, as does smoothness in the semi-dry feel.
