Paper City Indian Pale Ale
From Paper City – A classic rendition of the Style named after another one of the owners passions, the Indian Motorcycle. The bikes were fabricated in nearby Springfield Ma and at one time rivaled Harley Davidson. Jay’s collection of antique bikes can be seen in Paper City’s tasting room. For our IPA we use nearly two pounds of hops per barrel of British East Kent Goldings and American Yakima Goldings hops. We also use British light crystal, body building Munich malt, and North American pale malt. India’n Pale ale pulls from both the British and American traditions.
Paper City Brewery – Paper City India’n Pale Ale – 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. 5.4% abv. From online trade.
Appearance: Pours a cloudy amber gold with a frothy white film of head.
Aroma: News print (from the city of paper?), vinyl car upholstery and papaya.
Taste: Modest bitter earthy hop spice, tropical fruit, pepper. Finishes dry and bitter.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with spicy carbonation.
Overall: Not bad, but not something I would drink again, unless of course someone says I had a not-so-hot bottle. The person I got it from deemed it local and fresh, so I’m leaning towards it not being my bag.
