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.

My 600th beer. My Dad brought it after passing through Norther Alabama on his way up to Massachusetts and left a few singles. I had a great many Green Man's during a stay in Asheville, but not this flagship beer. It's solid, a worth everyday IPA, full of brassily expressed hops that nonetheless don't have the slightest skunk nor bad tang to them. Good stuff.

A: Some what reddish color, with a fluffy white head.
S: Strong earthy hop smell
T: A nice crisp bitterness of earthy and herbal hops. Fairly strong hop taste with a crisp finish.
M: Medium to light bodied.
O: I enjoy this beer a lot. It's my favorite easily-available IPA. It served a lot around where I'm from, and when I want a crisp IPA, this is my go to choice.

Appearance: pours a clear orange color with a 1" head that falls to a thick surface covering.

Smell: very little aroma here as some hints of citrus and hop bitterness comes through.

Taste: caramel, orange, ripe fruit, and an earthy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp from start to finish. Relatively clean aftertaste.

Overall: a decent English style IPA that is easy to quaff. Definitely could be a sessionable beer.
