COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Irie is a malty and complex India Pale Ale. Named for the Jamaican word “Irie” meaning “good, excellent, great or of good quality”, or "the state of feeling great, no worries", this beer is all of those and more. With an original gravity of about 1.070, the malt profile provides a sturdy backbone for the generous amount of Simcoe, Centennial and Columbus hops. American Ale yeast ferments this beer cleanly allowing the dank hop qualities to come through in all their glory… IRIE Mon!

650ml bottle from Binny’s in Chicago, Illinois. Cloudy orange in colour with a thin lasting white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of sweet grains, lots of malt, faint hops. The flavour is lightly bitter, moderate sweetness, light citrus hops, juicy, caramel malts. Finishes long with a building bitterness.

Really not to my liking at all. Thick yellow color. The aroma has its moments with some baby powder like floral notes but then in the flavor there is simply too much malt--vegetable and grass. Murky flavors. Not enjoyable. Bottle in Chicago.

Aroma is a complex mix of spices, citrus, bread/malts and pine. The flavor is fruit, citrus, malts, slight earthiness and a mix of bitter and slight heat in the finish.

JPDIPSO (5107) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Dark golden to amber in color. Tallest eggshell color head. Caramel and cereal scents along with orange zest, spruce and grass. Light sweet start. Light slightly zippy feel. Mild bitterness creeps and crescendos. Some citrus oils and pepper wander about. Warming in the stomach. Long linger of bitterness with some more orange oils.

seuinoz (157) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Very hoppy taste. Pours a cloudy golden hue. Aroma has a citrus smell to it, possibly lemon or orange. No alcohol presences with this beer. A very well balanced IPA

mfhennig (138) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2015
Poured cloudy orange with a huge, quickly fading off white head. A nice piney, citrus aroma. Not as hoppy as most IPA’s, but a bit more malt forward. A nice brew from a local Illinois brewer.

Poured from a 22oz bottle from Kaser - thanks! Aroma - Orangy - some dankness...not too tropical Appearance - hazy golden pour with 2 fingers of fluffy head. Taste - I feel like I’ve had this taste before...nothing unique about it. Overall - good beer, not great. The ratings on this beer are accurate.

BeerBunker (927) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2015
22oz bottle. Pours dark orange with a foamy white head. Aroma is of juicy hops, and that’s about it. Smells very soapy. Taste is of juicy bitter hops for about a second. When that second is up, there is nothing. Just a quick bitter hop taste. Very disappointing. Smells great, but nothing much after that.

TheSilentSaint (98) - Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Pours orange with 1 finger wide head. Smell pines and hops. Feel is light with medium carbonation. Taste is that of a good hop. Nice bitter hops. Aroma and taste hoes well together. Not an extraordinary IPA but I can have it again! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. Deep amber with a big khaki head. Dank, resiny hops, caramel and pineapple. Taste is pretty sweet but balanced with a big hoppy finish. Body is heavier with a sticky, foamy feel.
