THE CLYDESDALE | India Pale Ale
17.5˚P OG | 3.0˚P FG | 7.9% ABV | 65 IBU
A Clydesdale is a rare breed with a stature that is large and robust, made to perform lots of work. Bred for the long haul, with a certain heftiness, they are able to take the long pull.
The Clydesdale India Pale Ale is bold, strong and purposeful, able to keep going when the others have succumbed. Virtually every brewery offers an IPA these days, so standing out is getting harder and harder to do. Many IPAs tend to be too over-the-top or noisy with insane alcohol levels, palate exhausting bitterness, 27 hop varietals or some ultra-rare/new hop that is difficult to source. ROULEUR takes the “Italian cooking” approach to IPAs: Few ingredients that are of high-quality yet not necessarily uncommon; balanced perfectly with a twist. ROULEUR’s India Pale Ale is “hoppy” in flavor and aroma, but not bracingly bitter, sessionable-ish in terms of alcohol content, and different enough to be memorable and go the full distance. Clean, purposeful and without pretense.
Note: All of our beers are fermented with ROULEUR’s proprietary Amero-Belgo yeast blend, which is a clean fermenting strain that adds hints of dark fruit, spices and a faint tartness.
