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.

Brought back on my most recent trip to Philly.

A- English-style IPA poured from the bottle and into my pint glass with a slightly hazy orange-amber body. A white head about one-finger in height forms with average retention. A ring with creamy, small bubbles stays around leaving some nice patches of lace.

S- Really not the most aromatic IPA by any means. Some nutty and caramel malts come off the top with some dark fruits. Some herbal, spicy and floral hops but not a whole ton.

T-Yeast seems to offer a bit more here than in the nose. A definite dose dark fruits, spice and some bread notes. Malts are deep and give off some caramel sweets, nutty hints and a slight bit of a toasted feel. Hops round it off with herbal, floral and spicy fruit notes.

MF- Creamy overall feel to the body which is moderately thick. Carbonation has a silky feel and is at a medium level. Slight bitterness in the finish on the palate.

You can certainly taste an influence from the English/Euro yeast strain that must be used here, dark fruits and spices. Full flavored and well-rounded.

Poured into a snifter.

A: Clear dark golden yellow with one-and-a-half-finger, white, foamy head that lasted several minutes. Great lacing.

S: Citrus and caramel malt. Nice.

T: Light to moderate sweetness and moderate hop bitterness. Butter and toasted caramel malt and citrus hops. English style.

M: Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Crisp and slightly warm going down.

O: I feel like this is a pretty good example of the English IPA. Drinkable and refreshing.

Pours a light brown copper color with a half inch cream head that dissipates fairly quickly, leaving spotty lacing.

Bitter orange, grapefruit, and bready caramel malt form the aroma. Floral hop notes emerge as it warms.

Flavor reveals bready, grainy toasted malt, with underpinnings of sour orange and grapefruit. The finish is fairly bitter. More citrus character than expected, which is uncharacteristic of an English ipa.

Body is moderate, with carbonation on the high side, and light astringency and alcohol warmth.

Citrus flavoring hops and bitterness dominate. No real off flavors, but bitterness lingers a but much for my taste. Floral notes and earthiness are present, but are overridden by citrus.
