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).

GBBF Day 4. Lightly hazy gold beer, small white head. Light semi dry palate. Floral malt. Touch of pithy grapefruit. Light hop spice. Finishes semi dry. Not bad, a bit mild despite the apparent freshness of the hops.

Scopey (6726) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2013
Cask at GBBF 2013. It pours pale golden yellow with pretty much no head. The nose is soft, grainy, straw, floral and dough. The taste is lemony, grapefruit, pepper, decent bitterness, floral, straw, with a dry, citric finish. Not much going on.... A bit bland really...

BVery (6131) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Sampled on cask at All Pints North 2013 in Duluth, MN. Hazy yellow pour with a small head. Fruity citrusy, some hop bite, with a bit of malt coming through. Decent beer, but (just) another IPA.

Skyview (5181) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2013 12/13/13 Version: Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota and sampled at GTMW 2013 in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a hazy golden orange amber colored brew with a decent sized off-white head that has excellent retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus and grassy hops, some earthy spices and a touch of caramel malt. Taste is medium bodied, some toasted caramel and English-style malts, grassy/floral hops and some earthy spices. Finish is semi-dry, with a more earthy hop aftertaste with some toasted caramel malt in the background. Nice to take a break form the citrusy Cascadian hoppy IPA for once.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle. Slightly hazy medium amber colored brew with lively and dense off white head. Orange candy is the strongest scent I can get with some bits of pancake batter. This is like lightly bitter orange marmalade mixed into pancake batter. The body is lively with carbonation, yet a little bit dusty in the finish. This one is a decent drink and has enough bitterness throughout to keep it interesting and to balance the fair sweetness.

badgerben (4395) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Cloudy copper color with a large head. Light vegetal hop aroma. Moderate grain flavor. Fairly vegetal and earthy hop character. Medium bitterness. Some light dry honey towards the end of the glass.
