St. George IPA
St. George IPA poured a clear, reddish copper color with a pen width, off white head. The nose is grainy, filled with biscuity malt that blens well with hoopy, earthy notes.
The body is smooth, decent depth, with biscuity malt and a light spiciness. The backend features a nice amount of hops. The finish has a mild dryness that lingers for just a second before disapearing.
Overall, this is a great beer, and a fantastic British-style IPA. While the typical American craft beer drinker may not like its low IBU number (50), and its taste (drinks more like an American Pale Ale), it is wonderfully balanced and very mild/easy drinking while offering plenty. I loved this beer.
