Everybody knows that they sent Pale Ale to India (a.k.a. India Pale Ale) but nobody seems to realize that they sent WAY more porter over there. In order to make the voyage the brewers treated porter the way they did pale ale, i.e. doubled the bittering hops and dry hop the heck out of it. This isn’t your normal porter: intense roast character from the traditional grain bill of pale, amber, brown and black malts and a firm finish from 90 IBUs from East Kent Goldings hops. Think of it as the original black IPA! (6.1% ABV).
This beer is dedicated to Lemmy, the bassist and frontman for the band Motorhead. His music is always on rotation at the brewery and he will be missed.
