This is another twist on the traditional English Style "India Pale Ale". Served unfiltered. This beer is made from Pale Ale Malt and Munich malt and then powerfully hopped to 55 IBU with Simcoe and Ahtanum hops. Also dry hopped with a generous portion of Ahtanums for a fabulous aroma. India Pale Ales were made strong and hoppy to survive the long journey to the colonies and outposts in the West Indies. The preservative properties of the alcohol and the hops as well as the abilities of the very hoppy beers to mask the travails of long travel made for some strong and flavorful beers.
