COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
During the British Colonial Times, the English exported beer to India. To preserve the beer for a longer period, extra-hopped beers were produced (hops maintain natural preservation and add bitterness to the beer).

Robe ambrée, reflets blonds. Nez élégant sur des notes de fruits et d’agrumes, de houblon, d’épices et une touche de caramel. Bouche tout en finesse et en élégance, du fruit, des épices, une mousse discrète et une finale fraîche et équilibrée. Une belle IPA de soif
