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.

12oz bottle in a nonic pint glass.

Pours a burnt copper color with a 1F linen-white colored head. Heavy spot lacing and good retention.

Whole grain bread and pleasant floral hop aromas.

Malted grain and herbal hops Slightly nutty and earthy.

Bold English style body. Solid malt with hop overbite. Finishes quite clean and a bit dry; I expected some sweetness from its malts.

It looks and plays (taste, etc.) the part of an English IPA, then deals the American touch of more hops. Nice.

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.
