Posts Tagged ‘Indian Pale Ale’

So tonight was the night of the Indian Pale Ale. I went to my local Fresh and Easy and was walking around looking for something to have for dinner. After what I got what I needed, I went to the beverage aisle to see if they had beer that you wouldn’t find at the normal supermarket. That is when I saw this cool looking label, that the Underworld Brewing Company had come up with. I had never heard of this brewery,  and not having of heard of them before sparked my interest. So I decided to grab it.

This beer pours to an amber cooler with barely no head on it. I have made it a habit of smelling the beer before I even taste it. This helps me identify what to expect when I take that first sip. When I smelt this beer I was expecting to smell the hops that it is brewed with. What I actually got was a little bit of hops, malts and the aroma of fruits which was mostly an aroma of a lemon. After I took that first sip, it tasted just like I thought it would. I has the malts, a little bit of hops and finishes of with a fruity after tone. This beer was not as hoppy as I thought it would be when I bought it but overall it is a really good before. I usually give a beer a recommendation in each post. I would recommend this beer to anyone who like a Indian Pale Ale, but doesn’t like it to be that bitter. One a boldness scale I would rate this beer a 5 out of 10. Its not really that dark which is associated with a beer that is bold, but the alcohol content is near six percent.   So with that said, if you are looking for a unique Indian Pale Ale, this one is the one for you.

I paired it with some tacos because I wanted to see how the taste of the citrus of the beer paired with the spiciness of the salsa. I really think that  the citrus really complimented the tacos in general. This beer will also be a great beer to pair with a lot of seafood since it has that hint of lemon within it.
