Wolaver's India Pale Ale

Wolaver’s Fine Organic Ales are made by Otter Creek Brewing of Middlebury, Vermont. This India Pale Ale is unfiltered, unpasteurized and organic. It uses Magnum, Fuggles and Centennial hops. 

The beer pours an orange copper and amber in color. There is a bit of haze. There is a short, off-white head. The aroma is mild, floral and some stone fruit over a malt that is almost smoky.  The taste is plum and orange over caramel malt and tea. The finish is moderately bitter, with a grapefruit astringency and flavor. It has a full and smooth mouthfeel, with some tingles of carbonation. This is more of an English-style IPA to me, but a very good one at that.
