COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The “IRA”, as it’s known around here, marries a ruby red color and rich body with the hop flavors of an IPA. Our unique ale yeast strain adds a delicious layer of complexity. One of the first beers we made, and an enduring favorite. Brewed with Gambrinus Organic Pilsner malt, imported crystal malt, Simcoe and Brewers’ Gold hops. 6.5% ABV, 60 BU

500 ml bottle. Unclear reddish brown, tan foam settles and mostly fades. Spicy fruity caramel aroma. Taste is spicy fruity piney hop forward, thinner toasty caramel malt, a bit lean but still resinous. Average carbonation, light-medium bodied, well hopped. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

reetron (18) - Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 26, 2014
Pretty heady pour. Piney hops, heavy in the back of the throat but not a massive aroma. Ok balance but I like bigger flavor. It was ok. Ninkasi blows this one flat.

slowrunner77 (6755) - Reno, Nevada, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Good balance between the malts (mainly crystal?) and the hops. Not too hoppy or malty. Doesn’t wow, but is nicely done and complex.

ARH (777) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2014
On tap and poured into a shaker. The aroma is a floral, orange, and toast combination. The color is hazy amber topped with a medium thin ring of soapy, dense head with thin puffs of surface. An above average lace is left behind. The taste is a medium high sweet medium bitter. The texture is a sticky oily quality with a medium full body and light fuzzy carbonation. Citrus, caramel, and toast come through on the crisp and dry finish. The aftertaste is toasty with notes of caramel and bread.
