India Style Red Ale Brewed With Honey7.5% ABV
96 Overall 97 Style
Substantial amounts of late-kettle hop additions and dry-hopping yields a heady blend of fruity aromas of pineapple, peach and citrus. Those aromas continue into a crisply bitter hop presence across the tongue, but the judicious use of toasted and caramel specialty malts prevents the hop intensity from overwhelming the palate.
Locally sourced Michigan honey creates a smooth, dry finish that pulls everything together.
The India Red Ale style is a variation on the IPA, but with more caramel and toasted malt character and a reddish hue.
