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

post Borefts train to Amsterdam. Hazy deep amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, decent fine carbonation. Caramel malts, slightly oxidised tasting. Tea. Mild floral bitterness. Overripe fruits. Airy finish. Mild bitter linger. Okay but tastes a little tired.

Hazy light amber color. The aroma doesn’t deliver. Light mouthfeel, light malts, correct bitterness.

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - NOV 14, 2013
On tap @ Provisions Market. Amber/copper pour with a soapy off-white head. Aroma is huge pine and resin hop aromas. Caramel malt, grapefruit peel, and a bit of woody herbs. Nice. Flavor is a bit sweet up front with a strong bitterness to follow. Tons of pine, wood, herb, and resin character. Moderate grapefruit and some sweet caramel.

Oakes (13903) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2007
Hazy amber colour. Slightly spicy caramel and brown sugar nose with a hint of hop herbaceousness. Very quaffable - heck, slightly watery - with a balanced Simcoe-toast-caramel character. Somehow I wish for more in this brew but that’s not to say I don’t like what’s there.

bhensonb (12951) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours clear copper with a foamy 3 finger beige head. Aroma is malty/yeasty. Med + body. Flavor is roasty malt with some earthy and, perhaps, citrus hop. It’s hoppy enough to be tasty, and it’s bitter enough to not be a typical amber. But it’s malty enough to fall into the amber category. Drinks ok tho.

A reddish copper ale with a thick big bubbled off white head. In aroma, a rather nice herbaceous hops and caramel malt, and a bit of catnip. In mouth, a rich and malty ale with rich nice and smooth hops, floral and distinguished, rather British, quite good. On tap at Horse Brass Pub, Sept. 4 2010.
