India Red Ale (IRA)
The temperature has definitely taken a turn! Cold temps, rain, snow, and all the fun seasonal aspects are upon us. Time to hunker, bunker and have a good beer!! Our India Red Ale is full of all the things that will warm you to your toes. A solid base of Pale Malt, C60, C40 and C75 malts as well as a dose of honey malt and midnight wheat lead the way while hops of Columbus, Simcoe and Zythos remind you that this is indeed an India Red Ale. So grab a pint and a blanket and get comfortable....winter's here!
Hearty stews and soups Roasted or grilled meats (like lamb or beef) Aged cheeses (such as Gouda or Cheddar) Caramel desserts or spiced bread pudding
A deep red, reminiscent of a winter sunset, with a clarity that catches the light.
A rich malt foundation with hints of caramel, balanced by a subtle hop bitterness. The addition of honey malt brings a touch of sweetness, creating a harmonious and complex flavor profile.
At 7.3% ABV, it offers a comforting warmth, ideal for sipping slowly on a cold evening. The alcohol content is noticeable but well-integrated into the rich flavors of the beer.
With 53 IBU, it has a pronounced hop presence that complements the malt sweetness. This level of bitterness is approachable for those new to India Red Ales, providing a pleasant balance.
