Green Man India Pale Ale is delectably hoppy with a properly balanced body. Generous hop additions give it a wonderful bitterness and pleasant floral nose, while our combination of traditional British malts creates a rich, satisfying flavor and alluring copper color. This authentic English-style IPA is our flagship ale.

At first sip the full mouth feel is more prominent than the flavor. Not bitter but citrusy slightly orange lemon. I drank it out of the can so not sure about color but can guess it would be Lacey in a pint glass. Would definitely drink again.

I normally do not drink IPAs. Because I think they taste like salt water. But this is one of the best IPAs I’ve ever had. It’s not too hoppy, Has a really nice citrus flavor. It’s not bitter. Two thumbs up.

Above average in all aspects, this one poured a slightly hazy and golden hue with a slowly receding white had. The twelve-ounce can has a "best by" date stamped on the bottom.

Fresh aromas of citrus and berries.

This is described as an English-Style IPA, and the flavor profile largely followed that description with a little American added for good measure. First, the hop profile, while citrusy, slightly bitter, and refreshing, is quite restrained. I think the flavor profile would improve if the brewer added slightly more malt to truly reflect the English style. The body is rather light with a sustained, bittersweet flavor that lingers on the palate. The flavor profile becomes more balanced as the ale warms in the glass.

As with the other beers I have tried from this brewery, it is very good, just not great.

16 ounce draft pour at the mansion served in a pint glass. Bright honey amber in color with off white head. Aroma is sweet tea-like. The taste is semisweet toasted malt with a hint of herbal & grassy hops. Medium bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation and a mostly dry finish. Overall, very good.
