FATE Moirai India Pale Ale

Val and I stopped at a place called Urban Farmer for lunch and I had a beer with my sandwich. Let’s see how it was.

ABV: 7.2%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Storytelling is a big part of everything we do at FATE. It’s part of our companies DNA. Every Monday we’re going to share the story behind one of our core beers. First up is our Moirai (moi-rí) IPA. Moirai is the Greek Mythological translation of the “THE FATES.” The Moirai are 3 ugly old women who are the incarnations of destiny and determine the lot of a human’s life. Their existence is based in the universal principal of the natural order and therefore something, “which is right.” They FATEs are named: Clotho – She spins the thread of life from her distaff onto her spindle. Sings of the things that are. Lachesis – She measures the thread of life allotted to each human. She sings of the things that were. Atropos – She cuts the thread of life with her shears when the time has come, chooses the manner of each persons death. She sings of the things that are to be. Some details on our Moirai IPA: This beer is defined by its pronounced hop bitterness, flavor and aroma. It has a solid malt backbone that works with the citrusy American hops. The hop bouquet resonates like flavors of tangerine and ruby red grapefruit. The mouth feel is crisp and dry leaving a balance of bitterness and rich malt on the palate. It is golden honey in color.”

Random: This beer comes in at 70 IBUs.

This beer poured with a finger of pure white head that dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was pure orange and cloudy with a lot of carbonation visible. The nose was filled with melon and tropical fruit, specifically pineapple and mango. The taste was incredibly refreshing with a lot of grass and transitioned into tropical fruit. I picked up the same pineapple and mango that was apparent in the nose. The body was thicker than expected with moderate carbonation. The finish was lengthy and sticky. I thought this was a solid beer that I would have again.
