India Pale Ales were origninally brewed to be able to be shipped to the British people in India from the breweries in the UK. To be able to last the sea journey they had to be high in alcohol and contain loads of hops. Both the alcohol and the hops acted as preservatives to ensure the beer still tasted good when it reached India. Space Hoppy IPA is a pale golden ale and the hops impart a citrus flavour to make this beer hugely refreshing and ideal for accompanying most foods. The citrus hop character cuts through fatty or spicy foods allowing it to be equally as refreshing with food from the barbeque, or even with a curry!

Gravicask (PBBF2012, Tuesday)
Stodgy and vegetal in the aroma. Way more vegetal in the taste. Not satisfying at all. Citrus hop - where? Let’s hope the grass enjoyed it more than I did.
