COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Pale Ale was developed in Burton, England, as a "Super-Premium" hoppy pale ale around 1800. The extra strength in alcohol and hops helped preserve the beer on its long export journeys to India and beyond. The style developed a following worldwide. Its flavor begins with a smooth, malty creaminess followed with a big burst of dry-hop flavor from English Kent Golding Hops. It then finishes with a lingering yet pleasant bitterness.

Big Swell IPA is a fresh handcrafted India Pale Ale brewed with huge amounts of American hops and malted barley...dry hopped to perfection!

Semi hazy gold color with a creamy soapy white head of foam. Intense mango and pineapple aroma and flavor ease the palette right into a dry pine needle finish.

Can. It poured an orange color with a white head. The aroma was of pine, grass, orange peel and hops. The taste was similar to the aroma with more pine, grass, orange peel, hops and nice carbonation with a bitter aftertaste. Good stuff.
