Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.10%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A traditional India Pale Ale, the Elissa IPA is very hoppy with a properly balanced malty body. Elissa has huge hop additions in the kettle that give it a wonderful bitterness and is then dry-hopped in the fermenter to create the pleasant floral, hoppy nose. Our reverse osmosis water makes the bitter very soft with no harsh notes to it. The maltiness is derived from British Maris Otter malt. Its rich flavor stands up to the hops that would otherwise dominate this beer. The Elissa is an authentic version of an India Pale Ale (IPA) style.

Pours a nice reddish amber with a good fluffy head. Very floral scent. Tastes pretty sweet, not as better as the average IPA, but good hop flavor. Feels light and crisp on the tongue. It's a tad bitter for me to spend a whole night on, but that's just my personal dislike of IPAs. Very good overall.
