Apple Bottom IPA is an attempt to make an authentic English IPA. While I think it came out a little fruitier than a BJCP judge might like, the esters wind up working well with the bitterness and English hops.

Apple Bottom is a lighter, easier drinking IPA. It's got an apple-like quality from the Burton ale yeast, but manages to avoid cidery flavors. Mouthfeel is the opposite of heavy and color is a light amber. If it weren't upwards of 6%, I'd call it a good session beer.

Hell with it! Since I'm a drunk, it's a great session beer. I can see myself putting away many pints of it throughout a hot July.
