The view from Oliver Perry Monument across Lake Erie’s historic Misery Bay provides a constant reminder of the hardships endured during the Battle of Lake Erie. Misery Bay IPA is brewed as a tribute to Misery Bay and Graveyard Pond, final resting place for many brave sailors and soldiers. Misery Bay IPA offers a complex malt profile loaded with American hops at 75 IBU’s, and finishes at 6.5 % alcohol by volume. 15.7°

An orange to amber color with a white head. Aroma contains some caramel with a hint of citrus. The flavor is only slightly bitter if at all with a ton of caramel going on. Slightly oxidized which makes no sense since this brewery is new to town. Overall bleh. Misery aint far off brother

A bite of hop balanced out with a smooth malt characteristic. A very pleasant IPA.

12 ounce bottle. Pours golden orange with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, malt, and floral. Taste is the same. A mild IPA is what I tasted. Pretty good.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Thanksgiving day lunchtime warm up, bottle split at Christine and DAves thanks to DLJ, 28/11/13. Hazed golden amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is grassy, citric tang, orange, light hop profile, touch of caramel maltiness. Taste comprises caramel malt, orange pith, light grapefruit, sprinkle of sucre, a little subdued overall. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, grassy bitterness in the finish with a limted hop presence. Mediocre IPA.

SPDickerman (881) - Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Pours lightly hazy orange with a small white head. Smells lightly hopped and lightly malty, like a pale ale. Taste is just a little bitter, otherwise not very impressive. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Erie Brewing Misery Bay IPA finishes with a subtle bitterness.

Beer of the month club. Pours orange/amber color with minimal head. Great nose - floral , citrus and pine. Taste is good, but pretty standard...some piney hops, lemon. A touch of bitterness but pretty mild vs other IPAs. Nothing special, but good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GJF (1201) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Bottle from beer club. Tried it with Railbender, and this one has more character. It’s a solid IPA, decent dose of hop to it, but also fairly predictable.

Bottle - via Ale in the Mail. Light copper color, clear. Clean, somewhat hoppy aroma. Really good. Very hoppy though with some maltiness too.

crazyvin (1858) - New York, USA - NOV 21, 2013
A amber body with an off white head that had nice retention and lace. Aroma had a nice Carmel malt presence. A nice hop profile. Mostly grapefruit but there was a generic bitterness to it. Flavor was initially sweet. Hops were nice and balanced. There was more bitterness than the aroma indicated. Finish was moderately dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
