Formerly brewed at Adnams
Tasting notes and ingredients
It’s a 4.8% abv golden beer with fragrant citrus/floral aromas and a deep citrus bitterness. It is brewed with a blend of American hops, such as Willamette, Amarillo, Cascade, Centennial, Chinook and Citra, and Pale Ale malted barley, along with some Munich malt, Crystal malt and malted wheat give a biscuity backbone to the citrus from the hops.
What’s the story?
Fergus our Head brewer explains: “America might have started out replicating beer styles from the rest of the world but they have moved far beyond that and now their beer styles are influencing the rest of the world. I think their take on the original English India Pale Ale is the most successful. It’s may be slightly odd to recreate a version of a style that was originally exported from these shores, but I love the smell of hops and an American IPA is a showcase for citrus hops. They are big, bold, some might say brash, but, to my mind at least, beautiful.”
