Date Tasted:
Country: USA

Clear reddish mahogany color. Interesting aromas of floral honey on cinnamon rolls, dried fruits and citrus, ginger teriyaki sauce, and cucumber relish with a satiny, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a short-to-medium gingerbread with cherry jam, spiced nuts, coffee yogurt, and radish sprouts finish. A very malty IPA that drinks like a winter ale.

American Style IPA

American style IPAs are deep gold to amber in color and fall between 5.5-7.5% in alcohol. They are characterized by floral and citrus hop aromas and a distinctive hop bitterness on the finish. This style originated in the 19th century when British troops and colonizers were working to develop an alternative to their standard ales in order to withstand transport to India. Today, US craft brewers have claimed the style as their own with assertive Pacific Northwestern hop varieties that stand out. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Laurelwood Workhorse India Pale Ale, Oskar Blue’s Deviant Dale’s IPA, Three Floyds Alpha King and Founder’s Centennial IPA.
