Notes / Commercial Description:
Congratulations to Kevin Reckamp, our Name The I.P.A. Contest winner! German for quiet or calm, Ruhe was the alleged code word August Spies published in his paper, "Arbeiter-Zeitung" as a call to arms to anarchists on May 4th, 1886. This crisp, hoppy I.P.A. is brewed with Crystal and Cascade hops and is anything but quiet or calm.

Had on tap at Haymarket. Served in a curved pint glass.

A: Pours a semi-clear dark amber color with a thin white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring that leaves some sticky sheets of lace down the glass.

S: Piney with some grass and some mild resin. Sweet biscuit malts with fruity zest. Slightly sweet as well.

T: Definitive piney notes with some residual bitterness. A little weed and resin with some fruity melon and mango notes. Sweet biscuity malts with a hint of honey glaze. Semi-bitter finish.

M: Medium to light bodied with a dry finish. Medium carbonation level with a sweet and bitter aftertaste.

O: Nice balance between the fruit, sweet and bitter notes. Pretty drinkable as well. I had a second pint of this and I'd probably have another. A must try.

On-tap at Haymarket. Served in a 5oz taster glass.

A - Big white foam settles to a thin cap, glass-coating lace. Largely transparent golden orange body.

S - Citrus and light Crystal malt sugary note in the periphery. A tad dank and piney to go with the orange zest and pith hop flavors.

T - The taste is lighter on the Crystal malt, which I like. Pretty much a Cascade bomb, with tons of juicy citrus and light pine notes. A bit of crackery malt in the background. Moderate bitterness, with perhaps a hint of astringency late.

M - Dry, medium body, super resinous and oily in the finish. Pleasant medium carbonation and no discernible alcohol.

D - A well-made, 'classic' American IPA. I could drink this quite often and I think it would make a really excellent year-round 'house' beer, as it's one of my favorite Haymarket IPAs.
