Beer #22 – Erie Misery Bay IPA

My last encounter with Erie wasn’t quite what I expected, but since I believe you should try everything twice, I opted to check out their IPA.  Here it is, the Misery Bay IPA from Erie Brewing Company.

Misery Bay IPA, Erie Brewing CompanyPennsylvania, United States of A
American India Pale Ale, 6.5 % ABV

Aroma: Citrusy hops, with almost a hint of sweet chocolate malts.

Appearance: Pours golden amber, almost no head.

Flavor: Grassy hop taste, warming alcohol, with some earthy malt and a nice, full and bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Nice carbonation, medium-bodied.

Overall: Odd aromas to this beer out of the bottle, but the taste is really nice.  The lack of a head is disappointing though, although maybe it’s an aspect of my glass.  Aside from the appearance aspect, this is a pretty nice IPA.
