COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
India Pale Ales were origninally brewed to be able to be shipped to the British people in India from the breweries in the UK. To be able to last the sea journey they had to be high in alcohol and contain loads of hops. Both the alcohol and the hops acted as preservatives to ensure the beer still tasted good when it reached India. Space Hoppy IPA is a pale golden ale and the hops impart a citrus flavour to make this beer hugely refreshing and ideal for accompanying most foods. The citrus hop character cuts through fatty or spicy foods allowing it to be equally as refreshing with food from the barbeque, or even with a curry!

berkshirejohn (6412) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2012
50cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. Amber with a loose white head; slightly musty, honeyed aroma with some dusty hops; much better in the mouth though, soft and smooth with some zesty citrus fruit; and then a strong burst of mouth-filling hops that are assertive, but not too bitter; leading to a woody finish.

Bottled. A golden beer with a ring of off-white bubbles. Good spicy and orangey hops throughout. Some sting in the mouth. Full bodied and pretty bitter. A heavily hopped Golden where the hops seem to be very British. Nice.
