India Pale Ale – IPA

Beer Details
  • ABV: 5% (estimated)
  • Color: 7 SRM (approx)

India Pale Ales (IPAs) were first brewed in England during the late 1700s for export overseas to British soldiers in India. To keep their beer from spoiling during the long voyage, English brewers fortified their traditional pale ale recipes with natural preservatives: more malted barley, for a higher alcohol content, and more hops.

Another one of my favorites in Bangalore, the Toit IPA is an explosion of hop flavour and aroma. Slightly on the sweet side, but the hops being used give it a nice spicy/ floral character. Good head formation which stayed till halfway through the pint, and excellent lacing on the glass. With a medium body and a light amber colour, this is a must have for beer lovers anywhere.
