I'm not going to drone on about floral characteristics, lacing, wonder-inducing appearance, etc. This is a solid IPA. Information from the Pinthouse Pizza website: "Why Fallen Cask? Well as the story goes: Once upon a time, long ago in England, when they were colonizing India, they would send beer along with the normal rations. To survive the long journey they brewed beers with a higher ABV and more hops (a natural preservative). These beers eventually mellowed out by the end of the long journey and likely tasted similar to the Pale Ales being served in the British pubs back home.

The story goes on to say, one day during heavy seas a cask filled with Pale Ale bound for India fell off the boat. Dockworkers, upon seeing the floating cask, set out to retrieve the fallen cask from rough harbor waters. After the cask’s retrieval and tapping, it become obvious that the workers loved the taste of the higher ABV and higher bitterness that the fresh Pale Ale bound for India offered. The dockworkers demanded brewers make this “new” beer for the local pubs. From that one fallen cask in an English harbor the IPA as we know it was born! In honor of that event, our Fallen Cask series is an ever changing, constantly evolving expression of the IPA, which we have come to love."
