Postmark Brewing Ella IPA Review Postmark Brewing Co. – Ella IPA Review

Railtown’s Postmark Brewing Company has brewed up an IPA using the Australian hop varietal Ella. As the first in Postmark’s Experimental IPA series be beer pours from the bomber bottle a golden colour and is topped with two fingers of head. Smelling the beer it has tropical fruit notes of citrus and grapefruit along with a mellow spice. The Ella hop gives a similar, but less intense, aroma to the Galaxy hop. The Ella IPA has a citrus-bitter bite that comes in early and lingers. The citrus character is quite strong and the bitterness builds in some intensity. At 52 IBUs and 5.9% alcohol the bitterness factor is bigger than you may expcet. That said, a mild sweetness and citrus hop-kick adds balance along side. This beer is a great representation of the Ella hop and the citrus forward flavour that it offers.

Alcohol – 5.9%
IBU – 52
Size – 650ml
