Elissa IPA

Elissa IPA is a traditional India Pale Ale, which is a hoppy, a balanced malty bodied beer. Ellissa, a tall ship like the ships used to transport IPAs to India and is located in Galveston. Saint Arnold Brewery donates money from the proceeds for the preservation of the Elissa. They add hop in the kettle to give the bitterness, and then dry hopped in the fermenter for a floral, hoppy nose. The bitterness is softened by reverse osmosis, and the maltiness from British Maris Otter malt. By using reverse osmosis, they were able to overcome their high calcium carbonate, which would add a bitter characteristic to the beer. The distinctive American hop, Cascades, gives its citrus note. To maintain its freshness, they do not pasteurize their beer. This authentic version of IPAs richness stands up to the hops making this a great beer for any style of seafood, Indian food and spicy Thai.
