COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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°

blankboy (6426) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2008
Bottle (12oz). Pours a slightly hazy orange-copper with an average size frothy off-white head. Decent aroma of floral hops, bready caramel malt and fruit. Flavour of caramel malt, floral hops and citrus fruit with a finish that’s more bitter then I expected, a little spicy too (pepper mainly). Alcohol well hidden. Average bodied. A little underrated, this is a fine IPA, it’s just not awesome -- If this were from Canada it would be rated higher.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - OCT 4, 2008
12 oz bottle via Liquid SOl. Pours a SEMI-CLEAR COPPER WITH AN AVERAGE BEIGE HEAD. Nose is pine, orange, apricot. Taste is caramel, biscuits, pine, pepper and grapefruit with a semi-metallic dry finish. Body is medium, carbonation is moderate/high. Pretty good for an east coast IPA.

bhensonb (12042) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Pours a darkish orange amber color with an ok white head. Excellent floral aroma over some caramel. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is rather fruity and floral, with light biting spice, and some astringency. Finish is astringent, though not all that bitter. It’s a really tasty ale, badly underrated, and quite floral in the end. Hooah!

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Brewed in the USA !!! Pours a nice amber color with a med white head. The aroma is of hops, citrus, and a hint of pine needles. The taste is pretty much the same, but i might add a slight trace of pepper. It was a bit on the watery side but still pretty good. :)

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Bottle courtesy of summer SS 08, Mild pine aroma. Clear bubbly orange body with pale white head. Exelant lacing. Flavor of light grapefruit and lacking the crispness of an ipa. Great citrus grapefruit aftertaste lingering on palate. Man the aftertaste was better than the flavor odd. Thanks Alan.

Bottle. Darker amber pour with a decent head of lace. The hops are citrusy and light. Better than Erie’s other offerings, and easy to drink.
