Original IPA circa 1850 (for Alexandra David-Neel) 8% ABV.

A historical recreation of IPA as it tasted in India back when England sent extra hoppy pale ale to its colonists. Aged for a full year in oak barrels with Brettanomyces before we dry hopped and bottled it.
Brewed with a massive 160 IBUs of traditional East Kent Goldings and the finest Maris Otter malt.

Aromas of sandalwood and spice from the Brett with the marmalade character of the EKG dry hops. The massive hopping has been tamed by time and is now delightfully balanced with mouth coating hop resin without being bitter. Just a beautiful beer.
