Style: English India Pale Ale (IPA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our English Style Export IPA features 100% English hops and a big malt backbone built upon pale and caramel malted barley. The hop varietals, Pilgrim and East Kent Goldings, lend a quality of lemon and spice, which play off of the fruity flavors contributed by the London ale yeast.

India Pale Ales (IPAs) were first brewed in England during the late 1700s for export overseas to British soldiers in India. To keep their beer from spoiling during the long voyage, English brewers fortified their traditional pale ale recipes with natural preservatives: more malted barley, for a higher alcohol content, and more hops. In recent decades, with growing appreciation for highly hopped beers, American craft brewers have revived the style, embraced it, and incorporated new hop varieties. Our Special Release IPAs further those traditions and showcase the distinctions of hops from different hemispheres.

Review taken from notes dated 7-3-10.

An inch and a half of off white foamy head almost looks like shaving cream on top of this ale. Retention is in the mid range and leaves a rocky wall of lace as it fades. Body is a liquid gold orange amber in tone. Hop tones are rustic on the nose and more citrus based then anything. A sharp hint of alcohol is noticeable also with a decent malt backbone to the aroma. The flavor shows a very malt balanced IPA but not malt forward. This beer is almost creamy it is so balanced. Hops are leafy and dandelion like in taste. Medicinal alcohol twinges on the back of the tongue throughout the palate. This same alcohol feel makes this a very odd and unique IPA. Overall nicely drinkable. Mouthfeel is a buzz of alcohol hops and medicinal feel.

A - Golden yellow, with significant haze, and white head. Fine bubble, fades slowly. Significant lacing.

S - Bright lemon and malt.

T - The fruit comes through first, followed immediately with medicinal elements coupled with malty honey flavors, resolving with a more bitter finish.

M - Decent carbonation, but strong bitterness rooted in oily build.

O - Decent, but not exceptional, traditional English IPA.
