IPA – Raging Elephant

Beer Details
  • ABV: 6.8%
  • IBU: 80
  • Color: 9 SRM (approx)

Typical American IPAs should have a citrusy, floral, resinous, piney, and/or fruity aroma character derived from American hops. Some clean malty sweetness may be found in the background, but should be at a lower level than in English examples. Fruitiness, either from esters or hops, may also be detected in some versions, although a neutral fermentation character is also acceptable.

I understand that this is the same brew served in the American branch of Arbor Brewing Company under the name Sacred Cow (I can understand why they changed the name when they came to India :p) At 80 IBUs, this is an excellent brew. The hops are well balanced with the malts, and have a delicious aroma. Definitely one of my favorites. Good head and lacing that lasted till the end of the glass. I would have liked the beer to be a bit clearer, but I think Arbor dry hops this, which is possibly the reason for the haziness.
