Style | ABV
English India Pale Ale (IPA) |  6.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This ale has its origins in the traditional English style, with a generous helping of American exuberance. Bright copper in color, it has an assertive hop bitterness balanced with a subtle malt foundation. Dry hopping at two sates of the brewing process provides floral and fruity hop flavors adding to the complexity of the brew. Original gravity ~ 1060; Alcohol by volume -- 6%.

12-ounce, stubby, brown bottle poured into a 16-ounce shaker glass. The label of a barrel looks like it should be on a root beer bottle. I think D.L. Geary is paying homage to the fact that IPAs were originally shipped across sea.

Appearance - copper and clear with a rocky, egg-shell white head;

Smell - Hoppy and yeasty;

Taste - very mild hops for what IPAs have become. This may be a more classic English-style IPA. It doesn't have the assault of hops that many American IPAs have. It's bitter and malty.

Mouthfeel - Dry and a very slight astringency. This IPA is well carbonated, but not fizzy.

Overall - Closer to an American Pale Ale than an American IPA, but this makes the drinking easier.

I enjoy this more than the more dry Geary's Pale Ale and I don't mind having it in regular rotation in my refrigerator.

Picked this up spontaneously due to a pretty good price at my local bottle shop. I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised.

P - Copper/dark brown with a reddish/orange tint. Poured from a bottle into a snifter. A creamy off white one finger head which fell off pretty quickly.

A - Some citrus notes, a little earthy & not very hoppy for an IPA.

T - Not as much citrus in the taste. More molasses & a sweet syrupy taste than a citrus. Some orange notes but no grapefruit or hops at all.

M - light to medium in body. Nothing too amazing but this beer finishes very dry & it isn't bitter at all.

O - For the price I paid ($2.99) this isn't bad. I wouldn't ever pay more than $8.99 for a 6 pack.
