India Pale Ale is undisputedly one of, if not the, favorite of the craft beer scene. Originally developed to send beers to colonists in distant lands, the style of beer fell into oblivion for a long time. It wasn’t until the rise of the craft beer movement that the IPA was revived. Today it is experiencing a tremendous renaissance and is part of the repertoire of every craft brewer and that of many traditional breweries. But what triggers the fascination for this beer? It’s probably the hops. The IPA naturally contains a large amount of it and invites the brewers to really let off steam.
Against this background, we are not surprised that Josef Langwieser’s Edelbierschmiede also has an India Pale Ale in its range.
His interpretation is presented in a heavily clouded old gold and adorned with an airy splendor of off-white foam. In the nose we have citrus-fresh components that mix with exotic fruit, tart grapefruit and fine caramel malt. The first sip reveals a voluminous body with a velvety mouthfeel. A nice tartness of hops unites on the palate with notes of grapefruit, full-bodied malt and creamy honey sweetness. The accompanying bitterness is subtle and underlines the play of aromas without being dominant. Enjoying the beer concludes with a robust finish that is fruity and bitter with hops.
