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!

Bomber in Galesburg. I’d leave it at that, but I have to add characters, so there’s nothing particularly wrong with it, but nothing to make me think I’ll drink it again.

sawbuck (588) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2015
On tap at brewery. Aroma’s of citrus and some grass. Sweet malt up front but somewhat light backbone. Citrusy bitterness next that is a bit uneven but not off putting. Average IPA

Sampled at gabf. Not nearly as red as the pic. Simcoe jops are evident. That comlexity. Thistles works for me. Fruit and floral. Pretty nice.

Poured from the bomber, nice cloudy yellow orange with a few fingers of foam. Got the hops and the citrus and some bitter on the back end. The last time I was to Mundelein it was a strip mall community hiding very nice houses, guess they’re branching out.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2015
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.

Nuffield (3953) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 5, 2015
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.

wlajwl (5362) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 14, 2015
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 (5307) - 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 (212) - 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
