Iron Springs JC Flyer IPA

Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine - - American Ipa -

ABV: 7% | IBUS: 65 | SRM: N/A What the brewer says

“A Fairfax fa­vorite! We call this ‘The County’ style IPA. Laid back, not too bit­ter, but sassy like a lo­cal. Late hops ad­di­tions are Gal­axy and Ci­tra. Goes great in a hot tub or af­ter yoga.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Medium-high in­ten­sity citrus and flo­ral aroma with or­ange and le­mon play­ing the ma­jor role. Low-to-mod­er­ate malt sweet­ness adds com­plex­ity and helps blend ev­ery­thing to­gether. Al­co­hol is ev­i­dent, but not hot.” Fla­vor: “Well balanced West Coast IPA with a sim­ple grain bill that brings a touch of toasted sweet­ness to bal­ance the in­tense citrus hops char­ac­ter. Fin­ishes fairly bit­ter with a slightly sweet kiss.” Over­all: “Well ex­e­cuted mid­dle of the road West Coast IPA. Fairly big for the style on all fronts, but not in the ‘whack you over the head’ way. It finds the tar­get with­out the over­bear­ing bit­ter­ness that makes many IPAS less ses­sion­able.”
