Westerham Hop Rocket India Pale Ale


Brewed by Westerham
Edenbridge, England
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA) | Ratings: 23 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 4.8%
Cask; Special
A proper India Pale Ale (we have dropped the moniker IPA because of its deserved association with Insipid Pale Ale rather than India Pale Ale) brewed in the old style with only Maris Otter Pale Ale Malt and no Crystal Malt. It is a deep golden ale with a thirst quenching bitterness. This India Pale Ale is hopped with all the hop varieties that Ian Strang grows at Scotney Castle and Finchcocks’ hop gardens in West Kent:Target, WGV, Goldings, Bramling Cross and Progress hops. Now produced in our Hop Rocket
