Notes / Commercial Description:
Green Man India Pale Ale is delectably hoppy with a properly balanced body.

This authentic English-style IPA is our flagship ale.

Bold hops flavor - not delicate. Has a quenching characteristic to it. Smooth finish unusual in an IPA. Overall a nice offering.

Pours a rather clear orange color. Soft, off- white head with mild retention and good lacing.
Smells of English malts. Nutty, bready, crusty bread. Also pick up the earthy, Noble hops.
Taste follows nose. A hint of spicy hops as well.
Feel is close to medium-bodied. Finish is spicy.
Overall, this is a good IPA of the English variety.

12oz bottle dated 17 AUG 15 2114, poured into 13oz tulip

A — Pours a dark and appealing amber hue into the glass, with a noticeable and puffy off-white colored head atop the beer.

S — Smells mostly of English malts and some light noble hop bitterness, lightly grassy, malty, and slightly sweet.

T — Taste is noticeably bitter and quite assertive on the hop front, bitter notes of pine, earth, terroir, grass, hay, light lemon. Little to no sweetness or juiciness from the hops, tastes quite true to the style, though quite bitter.

M — Medium bodied, appreciable carbonation level, long and drying finish.

O — Nice overall, I could have a couple of these. Glad to have gotten to try it.

This Beer makes great for a late evening conversation with an amber shade color and a head retention thats at least 2 fingers along with a ibu of 63 I would have to say it is one added to my list of enjoyable ipa's. The mouthfeel is a medium viscosity with a taste of English style hops that has the a very bitterness bite that we beer connoisseurs all know and love. A local NC brew one should give a try currently enjoying my session on my front porch watching the grass grow listening to skyrims soundtrack haha live your leisure and cheers!
