COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled. Filtered and force-carbonated.
"Okells IPA is an extremely light coloured beer with a surprising full bodied taste, the sweetness is offset by a very strong hopping rate. That gives the finished beer an over all roundness with very spicy lemony notes and a fine dry finish to counteract the initial sweetness."
originally known as Dr Okells’ IPA
