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.

A: transparent, copper
S: fresh pine and caramel malt balance. Nice.
T: a hard bitterness dominates and lingers. Flavours are mostly malty but generally underwhelming so bitterness clearly dominates. With food, it cuts but doesn't compliment or contrast.
M: medium bodied.
O: The bitterness is really "in your face" and IMO the flavours aren't enough to create a balanced taste.
