Victory Art Brew Red Machine IPA

Brewed by Victory Art Brew
Ivanteevka, Moscow obl., Russia
7% India Pale Ale (IPA) | 69 Ratings | 65 IBU |
Our version and our vision of classic Indian Pale Ale in American style. Rather pale (with a small addition of crystal and wheat malts), very dry with distinctive bitterness and strong classical American aroma and flavour of citrus and tropical fruits - thatís our interpretation of American IPA for everyday consumption. We used LOTS of hops to achieve that: 5 hops additions throughout the brewing process plus double dry hopping with significant amount of hops during different stages of fermentation. Hops composition should give pleasure to every hophead: Centennial, Columbus, Chinook и Amarillo - more than 15 kilos of that magical ingredient were used and added to boiler, mash tun and fermentation tank. Nevertheless, the beer is quite balanced.
