BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Old Nation Brewing Co.
Michigan, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The First release in Old Nation's "New Orthodox" IPA series, M-43 is designed to accentuate the deep and complex character from the combination of Calypso, Simcoe, Citra and Amarillo hops. Citrus and Tropical notes of Pineapple, Mango and Grapefruit come through in the huge, yet surprisingly delicate aroma. The flavor backs these aromas with a soft, pillowy mouthfeel. Hop bitterness is not particularly intense, which leads to a very drinkable, New England IPA even non-IPA fans love. The Haze is not from yeast, but rather from an interplay of lipids from the malted oat and oils and acids which naturally occur in the hand selected Dry hops. This beer is a perfect interplay between top grade malt and hops, MI water and brewing technique which cannot be faked.

Hops aren't cheap, but M-43 is worth every penny!

65 IBU

As expected, thus beer is extremely hazy (can't see through it) and a pale yellow amber. There was minimal head by the time the beer reached the table. Although the taste was strong with hops, it was also quite sweet. The body was thick and juicy (as expected).

This was my first New England IPA, and I liked it even though I'm not a huge IPA fan. I enjoyed the haziness and the juicy thick body. The only complaint is that it was almost too sweet.
