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).

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...

Skyview (5345) - 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.
