Exotic tastes of India Pale Ales

India Pale Ales (IPAs), are a popular ale style & are often the staple of any micro-breweries menu. They get their characteristic flavour and aroma from the large amounts of hops used to make them. They have moderate to high bitterness and a big range of alcohol levels.

They are produced using top fermenting ale yeasts which impart a fuller, more rounded flavour providing fruity aromas. The colour can range from light ales to dark gold/red hues. There is even the occasional dark IPA. Check out the craft beer section at your bottle shop & you’ll soon spot an IPA or 20.

Our version of IPA is our ‘Dusty Red’. It isn’t as bitter as many of our competitors beers because we have used a red rye malt to make it. The rye has added a peppery/ spicy note which enhances the bitterness from the hops & made it slightly cloudy/ dusty.
