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

JorisPPattyn (9470) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 29, 2015
Quite stable yellow head, some lace, over hazy amber-orange beer. Hopoils galore, exotic fruit on cake bottom, sweet pine. Very dry, woody, tannine-like flavour. Resin, but little typical hopcharacter. Warming up, pineapple. Special! Bonedry MF, despite good carbonation; quite slick and decent body. This is a rather unique one, pretty special, and hence double welcome!

Bosskie (753) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2015
Opaque red brown beer with a thick yellowish head. Some fine yeast floating around. Smell is caramel sweetness with some alcohol bitterness and fruity sourness. Fresh cheese. Hint of honey and leather. Maybe some cherries. Taste is bitter sweet watery, very nicely balanced. Malty alcohol, quite a full mouth, bit of cheese, dry astringent finish, but quite gentle. Peels at the end.

olio (9278) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2015
50 cl bottle. Bottled on 03.12.2014.
Pours clear red color with a large head. Loads of resin on the nose, malts, some caramel notes, mild hops and some sweet tropical fruits, some cardboardy notes also as this is not that fresh anymore. Sweet resinous hops and caramel malts on the flavor, subtle gooseberries, orange and some mandarin. Bitter palate with a sweet malt-fruity finish. Sadly not so fresh anymore, decent still.
