We have used New Zealand grown PaleAle Malt, plus some of our favourite hop varieties Mosaic Columbus and Centennial. Similar ingredients, very differentbeer styles. Which Player will you choose?
India Pale Ale & IPA
India Pale Ale gets its name and unique style from British brewers who were making beer for export to India. This style has an intense hop flavor which was used to preserve the beer for the long voyage. India Pale Ale has a golden to copper color with a medium maltiness and body. The aroma is moderate to very strong. IPAs work especially well at cutting the heat of chili, vindaloo or Sichuan cuisine.
