Beer Review - Green Man IPA.

Green Man Brewery - Green Man IPA

Beer Type: English India Pale Ale - 6.00% ABV

Appearance: 12 oz brown bottle with a green man on it. Beer poured a copper/amber color with just a nice thick off-white head.      

Smell: Caramel malt and just a bit of hops. Not a lot of aroma here that I can detect.   

First Drink: Bunch of bitter in the front, some tart citrus or grassy flavors, then a bit of hops spice and some malt sweetness to round it all out.   

Mouthfeel: Pretty light but there seems to be a good amount of carbonation.     

Last Drink: A lot more hops and grassy flavors coming through now. The lasting bitterness is nice.           

Drinkability: Wasn't expecting this to be as bitter as it was based on the smell. It's good and goes down easy.            

Notes: Grabbed this in Asheville NC on a visit last year. Tried to get some from the brewery but got kicked out by an angry woman 30 minutes before they closed because she didn't feel like serving me.        

Verdict: 3.75 out of 5. Not so bad and not so great. Easy drinkin'
