American Style India Pale Ale
Vale/IPA is our interpretation of an american india pale ale. Using a combination of hops from three countries. This beer is designed with a balance of malt and hops giving a firm bitterness showing passionfruit, citrus and stone fruit characters derived from the hops.

Bottled version brewed at Laverton until the introduction of a bottling line to the Willunga Brewery.

4pack from dan murphys, citrus aromas, good lacing, carbonation just right, a good Aussie made ipa

Quite a sweet IPA and a little malt driven. Nothing really spectacular about this beer. There’s better XPA that are a better option. Not really a strong IPA. The four pack was dirt cheap and I’m not one to pass a bargain up but I think these will sit in the fridge until I’m desperate for a beer when running low.
