The first part of the Evolution of IPA series represents the roots of the beer style: Originally the India Pale Ale was brewed by the British in order to ship it to the colonies in bottles or in kegs. A slightly higher alcohol content and a lot of hops ensured long-lasting freshness and consistent taste. The green gold extended the shelf life of the beer and also made it even tastier.
After the colonial rulers enjoyed it very well, India Pale Ale was initially forgotten. It was not until the craft beer movement that the traditional style was revived and helped the IPA to regain its shine. The Dutch brewery Two Chefs Brewing builds on the heyday of the beer style and presents a new, thoroughly British classic with its British IPA. The two English hop varieties Fuggles and East Kent Golding ensure British charm. The British barley variety Maris Otter and an original strain of Nottingham yeast actively support the effect.
The result is a juicy British IPA with a pleasantly palatable 5.5% alcohol content, which has received twice the load of hops: Two kinds of hops were brewed and then the beer was cold-hopped with the Fuggles hop variety. The hoppy beer creation plays fine notes of freshly mown grass, a wonderful spiciness and a great bitterness that harmoniously combines the aromas.
