COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The “IRA”, as it’s known around here, marries a ruby red color and rich body with the hop flavors of an IPA. Our unique ale yeast strain adds a delicious layer of complexity. One of the first beers we made, and an enduring favorite. Brewed with Gambrinus Organic Pilsner malt, imported crystal malt, Simcoe and Brewers’ Gold hops. 6.5% ABV, 60 BU

Draft at PreFunk. Dark amber, clear, scant head. Sharp malty aroma, Band-Aids. Taste is also malt centric, leaves, tobacco . Slightly dry, cough drops.

Bottle shared with Ladi at Bad Flash on the last day of his tenure. Drank alongside the ’Hop Lava’. Both beers were disappointingly not hop forward. Nice malt profile and smooth and easy going. This one had more depth of flavour, more hops and was slightly more enjoyable.

The apearence of this bottle and beer is pretty normal but the taste us great. Not super heavy red but definitely hop. In the bottle drank with the neighbor lesbos. Good times.

On tap at Hop City. The yeast gave it a banana and clove finish that I want expecting, nice malt body.

Pours dark amber, slightly hazy with a nice off-white head. The aroma is caramel, malanoidin malts, some tropical fruit, ripe apple and pear. The taste is sweet, lots of caramel, hard candy. The bitterness is moderate, grassy and piney, long-lasting. The beer’s ok, I guess, but way too hard candy sweet for my taste and the bitterness doesn’t balance out the sweetness in a very pleasant way.
