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!

Draft at Jerry’s. Darker gold with good, foamy, white head / Bright nose of citrus, soap, pine, and bubblegum / Medium body, nice balance of good fruit and biting hops, with bitter finish / Flavors of orange peel, grapefruit, soap, cut pine, and bubblegum / Outstanding.

For the ibus being so high, this is actually pretty smooth. Definitely a strong hop and malty kick and a bit of boozyness but it’s not too overwhelming. Probably a bit much for a whole glass but was great as a taster sample.

Scipio (1081) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2017
Pours a clear, lighter amber in color with a medium, smooth, white head that lingers for awhile. The aroma is a little sweet, consisting of grapefruit, caramel, pine, grassy hops, and resin. The taste remains sweet and has some good bitterness. I feel its on the verge of being too sweet. Its on the dry side as well. The malts really come through in this one, although the grapefruit flavor is a constant throughout the sip. Very heavy pine and herbal hops, resin, and caramel. Long resin finish. Medium to full in body, sticky in texture, and average in carbonation. Not bad overall.

jmohno (1619) - Iowa, USA - APR 22, 2017

drpimento (3634) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 5, 2017
Very good beer! Appearance is a clear medium Amber with a long lasting off-white head and plenty of lace. Aroma is a blend of malt and a very fragrant Citrus grassy hop. Flavor is similar to nose with hops slightly dominating The Malt; a little sweet up front, bitter finish. Really good drinking beer.

Red-orange pour with an off-white head. Aroma is citrus and malt. Taste is citrus hops and a solid malt backbone. Good melding of flavor. Nice lacing. A good drink.

Thechasm442 (1005) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Pint can. Beer is a cloudy caramel with an average off white head and nice lacing. Aroma is full of bright tropical fruit, sweet citrus, and pine resin. Flavor is tropical citrus up front. Mango, papaya, grapefruit mainly. Bitter pine and sweet caramel finish it out. Average mouthfeel and a somewhat dry finish. Good beer.

GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - FEB 3, 2016
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 (732) - 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
