BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Green Man Brewery
North Carolina, United States

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.

Appearance: Pours a deep, semi-opaque amber, with a fair to small head of off-white suds.

Aroma: Floral hops, refreshingly different in it’s old-school English IPA fashion.

Taste: Sticky, resinous hops with notes of grapefruit, pine, floral, and herbal all at once. Finishes a bit bitter but this is a nice change from all the overly tropical IPA tastes dominating the scene. Definitely plays the old-school line but with slightly amped-up hops. Really good, unique, and notably different.
