india pale ale


INDIA PALE ALE is a true classic. in the time of the British Raj very strong pale ales were sent to India by sea. These ales were very high in both alcohol and hops to preserve them on their long sea journey. Generally they would be diluted to a more 'quaffable' alcohol level before drinking in India. This is our interpretation of how a true IPA would have tasted.
