Misty Mountain IPAMisty Mountain IPA
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Back East Brewing Company
Connecticut, United States
backeastbrewing.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Misty Mountain is a great example of the American-style India Pale Ale synonymous with Craft Beer. Originally brewed for sailors on shipping routes between England and India, British IPAs are known for their strong hop bitterness, which were added as a preservative for the long voyage. The American adaptation is decidedly stronger and offers a more robust hop bite. Back East IPA is no exception. This assertively hopped beer has a great hoppy aroma, crisp hop bite, and smooth medium body.

From the tap in a mason jar, honey colored, relatively clear in appearance.

Decent beer, but nothing that really stands out. A bit too bitter in the after taste.
