In this beer blog, we are going to get into a beer from Mt. Pleasant Brewing and the beer is called Iron Horse India Pale Ale. There is not a ton of information of when this brewery started but they are from Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. The State of Michigan has been seeing a huge growth of up and coming craft breweries. Let us get into the beer.
This India Pale Ale has a hazel copper color with a heavy constant white head. The smell of this full body has a heavy grapefruit to it. The taste is a heavy grapefruit to the beer has a grapefruit aftertaste. It is drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.mtpleasantbrew.com):
Iron Horse I.P.A. An American pale ale with full hops flavor and aroma Don’t be shy, try it. Like any good I.P.A. this one has plenty of hop presence but not so much that it is not approachable by our hop-weary friends. Instead of biggering and biggering like so many I.P.A.s these days we are keepin’ it real with a beer that will make you want to drink more than just one. Don’t worry though, hops heads, this beer still has enough bite to cut through any spicy dish you might want to pair it with. Try one, or five, with buffalo wings or a spicy blackened chicken dish. Iron Horse can also go quite well with shrimp, crab, or other light fish, so we have heard from a few of our loyal patrons. So, belly up and try Iron Horse if you have ever wondered what a good I.P.A is like. We promise you won’t be disappointed. ABV – 6.6%

In closing, I thought this beer was a little different to me. It has a heavy grapefruit to this full body India Pale Ale. If you love grapefruit, this will be a beer you need to try it. I have some mix feelings towards this beer. I would not say I do not like it but I would not say it is not one of my favorites. I would like to try this beer on draft to get a better feel towards this beer. I will have to say this beer is worth a shot of trying this India Pale Ale. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
