Garden State IPA

Garden State IPA Wine Details

Description: This ale is brewed in the spirit of English India Pale Ales. Made exclusively with British pale malt and English hops. Our IPA has a nice malty flavor, with a high bitterness level. We finished by dry hopping the IPA, to give it an extra floral aroma.

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.
