Hey beer lovers! I am here to tell you about one of my all-time favorite IPAs from Great North Aleworks. This West Coast-inspired IPA is packed with bold and aromatic hop flavors and a perfect balance of malt. It’s truly a delicious beer that I highly recommend giving Great North Aleworks IPA a try.
Great North’s IPA
When you pour a glass of this beer, you’ll notice a hazy golden color with a frothy white head. The aroma is a combination of citrus and pine, with a hint of tropical fruits. The smell alone will have you eager to take a sip. Coming in at 7.0% this IPA is really drinkable and it will sneak up on you. Trust me, you’ll be reaching for another soon after the first one.
On the taste, the beer starts off with a strong hop flavor, with notes of grapefruit and pine, followed by a slightly bitter finish. The malt bill provides a nice balance to the beer, making it easy to drink and leaving you wanting more.
The beer is brewed with a blend of classic “C” hops during the boil. Then finished with multiple dry hop doses of the same hops and some newer varieties. This gives it a bright and complex flavor. The malts are kept simple, allowing the hop flavor and aroma to be the star of the show. I think that might be the part I love most about this beer.
I am not the only one who loves this beer. It has also received recognition for its taste. In 2016, it was awarded a silver medal at the World Beer Cup. A bronze at the 20th Annual Great International Beer & Cider Competition, too
The best part? You don’t have to go far to find it. Great North IPA is readily available in New Hampshire, so you can easily grab a cold one and taste it for yourself. Trust me, it’s worth it. Cheers!
