Notes/Commercial Description:
A style of ale that was fashioned to survive the long voyage from England to India during the British colonization. Hop, hops, and more hops! This ale has an intense aroma and a long lingering finish. A beer for the connoisseur, this is the Brewmasters choice.

Known as Red Betty IPA in the United States.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Clear, amber-bronze with a white head, good retention & lacing.

S: Big piny nose, with grass, tangerine & rind.

T: Tangerine, pine, nectarine and citrus rind, with some underlying malty goodness (not sweet, just some quality malt protein). Certainly balanced to the bitter side, but it's not at all harsh with their soft water. Plenty of hop flavour here!

M: Well attenuated, moderate body is smooth with a hint of hop acidity.

D: A sessionable IPA for any hop lover.
