COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Misty Mountain is a great example of the American-style India Pale Ale synonymous with Craft Beer. Originally brewed for sailors on shipping routes between England and India, British IPAs are known for their strong hop bitterness, which were added as a preservative for the long voyage. The American adaptation is decidedly stronger and offers a more robust hop bite. Back East IPA is no exception. This assertively hopped beer has a great hoppy aroma, crisp hop bite, and smooth medium body.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - SEP 2, 2013
UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 Can: Completely opaque and clogged copper and a super huge, long lasting, cloud-like eggshell head. Chunky, fat lacing left all around. Aroma is like grass water, heavy grass notes and raw hops, slightly herbaceous and only mildly citric. Taste is mild bitterness, light herbal and white pepper notes, light orangey citrus but pretty faint. More grass, light floral and herbs. Toasty cracker malt in the finish. Also a slightly strange bit of vegetal I cant exactly figure out. Medium mouth feel, thicker than expected, decent carbonation.

Cask at GBBF 2016. It pours lightly hazy amber with a small white head. The aroma is sweet, sticky, juicy, generic citrus, apricot, peach and resin. The taste is smooth, rich, bitter - sweet, juicy sticky, pine, resin, drying astringency, stewed peach and candy with a dry, sweetish finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Not bad.
