English India Pale Ale (IPA) |  7.20% ABV

Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our English Style Export IPA features 100% English hops and a big malt backbone built upon pale and caramel malted barley. The hop varietals, Pilgrim and East Kent Goldings, lend a quality of lemon and spice, which play off of the fruity flavors contributed by the London ale yeast.

India Pale Ales (IPAs) were first brewed in England during the late 1700s for export overseas to British soldiers in India. To keep their beer from spoiling during the long voyage, English brewers fortified their traditional pale ale recipes with natural preservatives: more malted barley, for a higher alcohol content, and more hops. In recent decades, with growing appreciation for highly hopped beers, American craft brewers have revived the style, embraced it, and incorporated new hop varieties. Our Special Release IPAs further those traditions and showcase the distinctions of hops from different hemispheres.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours a hazy golden color. Vigorous pour yielded a large head. Pretty decent lacing.

Smells of lemons. Also getting a bit of a sour smell rather than just the citrus from the lemon. I thought the beer smelled a little stale, but I'm pretty sure it was just the sour.

Tastes like a hopped up heffe kind of. Lemons on my palette.

On the mouth it's not crisp, and not creamy. Kind of average.

Overall a good beer. Not the best IPA I've ever had, but a good six pack if you're looking for something good to drink while grilling, or to share with some friends.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: A light burnt orange body under a light cream colored head. Massive sheets of lacing.

Aroma: Malty with wood notes and spices. Piny hops in the end.

Taste: Malty and spicy up front, piny with grapefruit rind in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy in body.

Overall: Pretty good, pretty thick for summer drinking though.
