India Pale Ale is a classic British beer style, traditionally brewed strong and well-hopped to survive the voyage to India. Our IPA is brewed to 7% and is liberally hopped with different varieties from America and New Zealand for each batch.
This means we’re able to select the most flavoursome hops available and showcase a range of flavour profiles.
Our new batch of IPA (brewed on Friday 24th April) has been brewed with new season’s hops; Nelson Sauvin from New Zealand and Citra, Colombus & Mosaic from the US.
We’re big fans of Kiwi hops, not least because our head brewer is a native, but because New Zealand grows some of the world’s most unique hops due to its remote location and lack of pests and hop disease. Nelson Sauvin is one of these, producing fruity “fresh crushed gooseberry” tropical flavours, much like the wine it is named after (Sauvignon Blanc). Combined with Citra, Colombus & Mosaic this beer has plenty of resinous, fruity hop character.
This new batch of IPA will be packaged in cask, keg and bottle. Bottles can be bought from our beer shop online in cases of 6 or 12 or individually at The Beer Hall, Staveley.
