Bandit IPA

Bandit IPA Wine Details

Description: Bandit IPA is our most assertive and most highly hopped ale. Like the sly critter this beer is named for, the Bandit might sneak up on you. This higher gravity beer is brewed paler than many India Pale Ales and is aggressively hopped with centennial and cascade hops.

Varietal Definition
India Pale Ale (IPA):
India Pale Ales are deep gold to amber in color, and are usually characterized by floral hop aromas and a distinctive hop bitterness on the finish. India Pale Ales were originally brewed by British brewers in the 19th Century, when British troops and colonizers depended upon supplies of beer shipped from England. Standard ales did not survive the journey, hence brewers developed high gravity, highly hopped ales that survived shipment in casks to their largest market, India. This style, probably not anywhere near as bitter as it was when destined for India, continues to be brewed in a toned down manner in the UK and is undergoing a mini-revival at present.
