IPA was originally brewed strong and hoppy to survive the long trip by sea from England to India. Treat yourself to this American version of a classic strong ale. 51.2 IBU

Growler pour at the HMoG at the Brick Store. Pours a light golden amber with a fluffy white head that leaves some decent lacing as it recedes to a ring. The hops kick pretty hard up front with an initial earthy aroma with hints of citrus underneath. The caramel malts are subtle but present in the nose as well. The taste starts with the earthy hops which have a nice opening bitterness which is balanced pretty well with the toasted malt backbone. There are some pine hops to provide a bitterness through the finish. The mouthfeel is prickly but still smooth with good carbonation. This is definitely a drinkable IPA and another great brew from Pisgah.

Growler. Hazy light orange pour with a white head. Citrus hop aroma with a bit of sweet malt. The taste is a little milder than the aroma with the same hop profile and some caramel in the finish.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Growler from Bruisin’ Ales on 11/1/08. Clear, burnt orange body under a large, creamy, rocky, off white head that lasts a long time and leaves a sticky, articulated lace. Fresh piney hop aroma with a good dose of caramel, and notable citrus. Medium body and light to medium carbonation, resinous, yet with nice smoothness and a dry palate. Solid caramel sweetness up front, quickly overtaken by an intense citrus rind bitterness that ushers in a long, dry finish. An excellent American style IPA, obviously very fresh, with all the right qualities.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - FEB 17, 2008
Growler from Bruisin’ Ales, Asheville. Pours a deep clear amber-orange with a small but lingering white head. Nose is strong citrus, shades of lemongrass and orange, some mild pale malt sweetness. Body is a bit thin but the hops come through nice and sweet, with strong tangerine character. Ends with a nice solid leafy hop presence. A rather potable IPA.

A dark orange IPA. A lot darker and heavier then I expected. A consistent hoppy character for an IPA, but I wasn’t really impressed.

Growler, courtesy of Schutzenliesel. Thanks, Tom! Pours a hazy, orange-amber color; white head with good lacing. Earthy and resiny citrus notes in the aroma. Medium mouthfeel: bitter, resiny citrus; chewy hop character, with a slight candy sugar malt presence; well-balanced and very drinkable. Lengthy, bitter citrus and earthy finish.
