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).

Hazy gold, thin white head. Semi dry beer with a good bit of grassy hop and light yeast flavor. Almost reminiscent of a saison more than ipa. tasty.

Leighton (15306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2015
Draft at GBBF 2013, day 4 - London. Pours clear gold with a bubbly topping. The nose holds dry and moderately grainy pale malts, bread, dry citrus. Light sweet flavor, with some dry tangerine, some biscuits, mellow bitter straw. Light in body with fine carbonation; good condition. Nicely balanced in the finish, with a bit more biscuity pale malts, semi-dry tangerine. A nice IPA overall.

dhatton (234) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Golden murky body with limited head. Focused on mediocrity; aroma was relatively mild and citrus flavors overwhelmed the fresh hoppy taste I was hoping for. Very potable, but not overly impressive.

jandd1983 (3313) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - MAR 3, 2014
It poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma was of sweet citrus hops, grapefruits, tangerines, mangos and some caramel/pale malts. The taste was a bitter piney resin taste with some citrus hops, pale malts barley and some grassiness; very earthy tasting. Not bad.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Malt bill #2. Speckled and hazed golden yellow with a quickly fading medium white crown. Aroma is soapy and herbal with noble hops and mild nutty notes. Taste is noble and gritty with caramel, corn stalk and a moderate bitter finish in a thin body. Come to think of it, I will have another IPA.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Golden to dark golden pour with a small bubbled slightly dense white head. English hops aroma and a very earthy mineral note a big whif yields something that I can almost call a light vomit or soap... really it’s something funky, but not good.. fortunately not really noticeable. The taste is a light toffee under a classic english hop, very earthy a little soapy. OK, but not something I’ll order again.

Bottle, second brew. Pours a rather ugly cloudy yellow-orange body with an off-white head. Aroma of straw, bread, grass, and faint citrus. Taste is mainly grassy hops with some citrus peel. Bitter finish.
