Style: English India Pale Ale (IPA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Darker IPA with a slight white head. Very tasty. Great beer for watching a ball game.

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Absolutely gorgeous red bronze, just beaming clear and shiny mirror quality, with nice tiny pinhead carbonation. Head manages only about two fingers, a little tan and small swiss cheese bubbles in it's makeup. Decent staying power, clumps and hangs quite a bit with spider like lacing, settling to a one finger puck.

Interesting mellow nose. Mild tea like hop aromatics, soft biscuit notes and light toasted brown bread and grains, just very slight and light. The light character even continues into a soft caramel sweetness as well. Toasty notes really match nicely, but like a true IPA the hops stand forward. Very nice and solid.

Palate comes basic and simple. Mild hop bitterness in mid palate, as a bit of sweet and toasty bread carries the mid palate. Aftertaste and finish washes clean, as the hop bitterness grows to a good green herbality and very spicy hop bitter finish. Soft bodied and a pine like aftertaste to match along with hints of spruce and dried green herbs. A biting toasty quality matches nicely in feel on this with the hop profile and malts together.

Very nice English Ipa.
