Green Man Brewery
North Carolina, United States

Style: English India Pale Ale (IPA)

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.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a hazy dark copper with just a thin white head. Decent lacing, however, and a thin off-white cap on top of the beer.

Aroma is very earthy with plenty of hints of toast and caramel. Some pine and overripe orange as well. Pretty good.

The flavor has more of the piney earthiness expected from an English IPA. Nothing tropical at all about this. Just the slightest hint of fruit but it is more of the overripe variety. Bitterness is moderate to high but not too excessive. Lingering bitterness in the finish with a slight sweetness.

Overall, this is a good, albeit fairly run of the mill, English IPA. Nice earthiness from the hops but lacks a bit of the maltiness complexity found in other examples. All in all a good beer.
