COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The history of India pale ales date back to the 18th century when British troops occupied India. Beer was made in England and sent to the stationed troops. Pale ales were popular beers at the time and had to endure a six month journey to the distant country. Spoilage was common and one way to prevent the loss of beer was to add more hops to the existing recipe, which are an excellent natural preservative. The addition of more hops made pale ales stronger with a higher alcohol content. Basically, India Pale Ales are stronger over hopped versions of it's cousin, the Pale Ale. The style has grown very popular in this country over the years and can be found all around. Our IPA is more aggressive than most with a high hop aroma. The taste is a true hop bomb. The IPA appears somewhat cloudy because it is unfiltered, leaving every bit of flavor in the glass.

(draft @ Chicago Brewing Company in Four Queens Hotel & Casino - Las Vegas, NV) Hazy copper pour with a white head. Nice citrus and bitter hop aroma. Piney flavor at the start that moves to a sweet citrus and very lightly bitter finish. Really nice.
