COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Live ale from the hand pump. Well balanced English style India Pale Ale. Not as aggressively hopped as its American cousin. East Kent Goldings, Fuggles, and First Gold hops all added throughout the boil for a well rounded taste. Dry hopped. Alcohol strength is evident but not overwhelming.
Cask conditioned, very hoppy IPA. A real ale from the hand pump.
