The countdown is coming close to the end and we head back to Asheville for Green Man IPA (6.2% ABV / 63 IBU). In what has become a rather long list of IPAs this is one of the earliest I tried and one that I like to come back to. For a while it was almost impossible to find Green Man in Raleigh but it has gotten a little easier in the past couple of years meaning I could enjoy more often than the occasional trip to Asheville used to allow.
Green Man India Pale Ale is delectably hoppy with a properly balanced body. Generous hop additions give it a wonderful bitterness and pleasant floral nose, while our combination of traditional British malts creates a rich, satisfying flavor and alluring copper color. This authentic English-style IPA is our flagship ale.
