COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When it came time for brewer Mike Lundell to brew his newest Unchained Series beer, he asked himself: “What does the beer world need most right now?” The answer: “Another IPA!” No, seriously, that is the beer’s name – Another IPA. An English-style IPA featuring Golden Promise malt and Target hops, expect herbal hop notes, nutty malt character and a fruity nose. Why order just another IPA when you can get Another IPA! Malts: Golden Promise. Hops: Target.

To add to the Unchained nature of this beer, Mike brewed two batches of Another IPA with slightly different malt bills. The first batch features Golden Promise malt from Simpsons Malt in the UK. This malt has been kilned to our specifications, resulting in a slightly darker (deep bronze) IPA with a fuller body. This brew will have an “Enjoy By Date” of 12/13/13 on the bottles. The second brew of Unchained 13 features a standard-kilned Golden Promise malt from Thomas Fawcett & Sons UK maltsters. Bottles will include an “Enjoy By Date” of 12/27/13. This beer will be a bit lighter in body and color (dark gold).

Bif (1294) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Pours a cloudy dark golden color with a decent head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, some fruit and grassy. Taste of pine up front with some malt and bit of caramel sweetness with a bit of nut. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, crisp, smooth and well balance. Has an unexpected malt character for an IPA. Enjoyable beer. Nice twist on being just another IPA.

Nuffield (3636) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Dark golden/amber color. Promising aroma with prominent citrus notes, but some hints of grassiness. The flavor is more obviously grassy, a bit nutty, and murky. The bitterness is somewhat astringent, lightly metallic, and not pleasing. Might be the kind of beer that would improve with a hand-pulled cask, or at least that would fit the English aspirations.

BeerKurve (430) - - OCT 10, 2013
Hazy yellow color with a foamy/filmy head and OK lacing. Nose is sweet citrus hops, grapefruits, tangerines, mangoes and some caramel & pale malts. Flavor is a bitter piney resin taste with some citrus hops, pale malts barley and some grassiness; very earthy tasting. Heavy body with some relatively high carbonation. Good IPA but I’ll stick with their other regular IPAs

vikingguy (761) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2013 Golden with foamy white head. Bright floral hops on the nose. Grassy hops with pine accents dominate flavor. Medium bodied pale malts balance. It’s refreshing for an IPA. Taste is a bit sharp and not my favorite flavor profile for an IPA but overall it’s pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

portableparty (1908) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy amber with tiny sediment that floats about and a tight almost creamy off white head that fades to a thin spotty film. Aroma has English malt floral hops and sweet bread. Taste is bitter, but not overpowering with floral spruce like hops and plenty of caramel malt and bread. Palate is thin to medium with a crisp dry and subtle spice finish. I dig it.

jcnielsen (1707) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours a copper color with white head. Herbal, earthy, bitter, hoppy aromas. Earthy, floral, herbal, bitter flavors. Nothing great.

nuplastikk (4123) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2013
12oz bottle. Hazy orange-yellow body, thin foamy white head. Grassy, herbal hop flavors and aroma, like someone else pointed out, almost approaching saison tones at times. Drinkable, approaching full bodied. Toasty bitterness. Has faded a little even after a month in terms of hops, but is another rather unique addition to the Unchained family.

Atom (1212) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2013
On tap at Grumpys NE, pours a hazy golden with a thin white head. Floral hop aroma with caramel malt. Taste of sweet tropical and floral hops, caramel and English toffee malts, with a dry bitter finish. Not bad for just another IPA.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2013
Gravity dispense at GBBF ’13, 16/08/13. Hazed golden amber with little in the way of a head. Nose is light hops, caramel malt, grass, orange. Taste comprises toasted malts, orange, light hop bill. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dryish finish with subtle hop bitterness. So so IPA.

Mild herbal sort of ipa. Ample bitterness, quite dry not a lot of malt here. Decent
