O’hare’s Beer Club December 2012 Box
From Hood River Oregon’s Double Mountain Brewery comes their “IRA (India Red Ale)”. The beer pours a ruby red colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of malts, caramel and grassy hops. The flavour is of pine and earthy hops up front with lots of malts and caramel. The alcohol content comes in at 6.5% with an IBU of 65. Being a huge fan of IPA’s I was destined to love this beer as it is very similar. This is a beer well worth your time if you are a fan of India Pale ale’s.
Commercial Description: The “IRA”, as it’s known around here, marries a ruby red color and rich body with the hop flavors of an IPA. Our unique ale yeast strain adds a delicious layer of complexity. One of the first beers we made, and an enduring favorite.
Food Pairing according to O’hare’s Beer Club notes are as follows: Spicy beer, seafood
