COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Strong, assertively hoppy and dangerously seductive. A skillful blendo of three premium barley malts with generous amounts of northern brewer and cascade hops. Ironic Ale is a highly aromatic India Pale Ale with an inviting bitterness.

Bottle thanks to Brigadier: Pours a slightly hazy copper orange with a nice, frothy-lacing off-white head. Aroma has some nice fresh citrusy hops and a touch of toasty pale malt. Body starts with good fresh grapefruity hoppy flavor balanced with a nice caramely malty presence. Drier, flavorful, finish leaves some lingering hop resin. A nice IPA.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 21, 2007
Poured a clear amber color with a large long lasting off-white head. The aroma is citrus and pine balanced by sweet caramel. Decent ctirus with a light malt and good bitter backing on a dry finish.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2007
Sweet caramel aroma compliments slight grassiness. Hazy orange amber in color with a nice white head. Lots of iced tea in the flavor, earthy hops, citric twang, and a stiff malt base with loads of caramel. Fairly rich in body. It’s quite good! Plus…huge props for the Quentin Tarantino sketch on the label. Thanks Brad.

GTown (127) - New York, USA - MAR 6, 2007
Pours deep copper with off white head. Moderate lacing. Aroma is cirtusy-pine. Hops dominate malt/carmel balance. Not bad.

Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2006
Brewed for Shakespeare’s Pub in Kalamazoo by Michigan Brewing Co. Bottle: hazy orange-brown body, thick dissipating cream head that leaves nice lacing. Bitter, citrusy hops nose with heavy, sweet caramely malts. Bitter, sharp hops slam the palate with notes of citrus and perfume. Caramely, sweet malts lend heft to the beer but play second fiddle to the intense hopping. This is an interesting departure from MBC’s own hoppy beers.
