Based on the old original English IPA, a beer where malt and yeast character meld with the plentiful hops
[Character]Offering a good amount of hop bitterness balanced with grassy and citrus characters in what can be described as a classically balanced English IPA.[Food Pairing]Vegetable tempura, steak and kidney pie, seafood and citrus dill salad[Naming]While the modern IPA that the world has fallen for undoubtedly began in America, it was in England that the style was originally created[Brewer's Voice]We are excited to announce the first release in our 6 Innovators series which traces the IPAs that have defined the style since its inception. With the style originating in the UK in the 1800s, it only made since that our first installment is an English IPA.
We incorporated three aspects of the beers that gave birth to the style in this brew. First, old brewing records show that these beers were quite light in color, using malt that was kilned as little as possible. Second, these hops were intensely bitter, with a much higher amount of hops per liter than what is considered standard today. Finally, the water in Burton, England, has an incredibly high sulfate content, which accentuates hop flavor and bitterness.
Our goal wasn't to recreate old recipes with 100% accuracy, but it was fun to research what they were like. We hope you enjoy this taste of IPAs beginnings!StyleEnglish IPASeries6 InnovatorsABV7.0%IBU65Gas Volume2.4MaltMaris Otter, PilsnerHopGoldings, WillametteYeastEnglish AleCategoryBeerJAN4589718741024Best Before2023/04/30
