Free State Tallgrass Pale Ale


Formerly brewed at Free State Brewing Company
Lawrence, Kansas USA
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA) | Ratings: 2 | Alcohol: -
This is another twist on the India Pale Ale Style. It uses Simcoe hops for bittering and whole UK Fuggle hop flowers in the Hop Jack for a fine aroma. The UK Fuggle hops are a more subtle hop than the domestic Fuggles that we have use in several of our other beers. Unlike the Copperhead, this beer does not use any caramel malts, giving it a somewhat lighter malt flavor and color. This beer is made from Pale Ale Malt and Munich malt to provide a solid malt underpinning. India Pale Ales were made strong and hoppy to survive the long journey to the colonies and outposts in the West Indies. The preservative properties of the alcohol and the hops as well as the abilities of these hoppy beers to mask the trevails of long travel made for some strong and flavorful beers.
Original Gravity 15.15 degrees Plato IBU's 55.
