English India Pale Ale (IPA) |  5.90% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Real India Pale Ale (IPA), as it was first brewed in the days of the British Empire, was not the carefully filtered brew that we call IPA beer today. The first IPAs were unfiltered and featured extra hops and higher strength as a preservative for the long trip from England to the colony of India. Our Traditional IPA ale is naturally carbonated, dry-hopped & unfiltered like the old days.

A very well balanced brew. The hops in this IPA are not overwhelming and add a very nice refreshing clean taste. The color is a lighter and the aroma is not bold but it is distinctive. The lacing left on the glass was beautiful. A good beer that is well worth your time.

True to its claims, it is unfiltered, cloudy and orangey, with a soapy white head and lacing. The aroma is mild, with light citrus and bread notes. The taste is equally mild, with an additional earthy flavor on the finish. There is a fair bit of carbonation on the palate and it is a little thinner. A good not great IPA.
