COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Special.
W.I.S.P.A is a true classic IPA (India Pale Ale) brewed in recognition of our Brewer, Dhiraj, our very own Mumbai Indian! This full flavoured beer is Amber bronze in colour, with a complex mixture of mature fruits, and heavily late hopped with three distinctive varieties, giving a citrus nose and a crisp dry finish.
Give W.I.S.P.A. a try - a Pale Ale brewed by an Indian on the Banks of the Wharfe!
