Swagga English IPA
Hop flavour is an assertive hop bitterness with a slightly floral, earthy, (English hop).
Malt flavour is medium-low and should show an English character and be bready, biscuit-like, toasty, with a light toffee-like character.
The substantial hop character is balanced with malt flavour, body and complexity to support the hops. No diacetyl present, and fruitiness from fermentation or hops adds to the complexity.
Finish is medium to dry, and bitterness may linger into the aftertaste but should not be harsh. High sulphate water is used to give a distinctively dry finish, some sulphur flavour, and a lingering bitterness are usually present.
Smooth, medium-bodied mouthfeel without hop-derived astringency, although moderate to medium high carbonation can combine to render an overall dry sensation in the presence of malt sweetness.
A hoppy, moderately strong pale ale that features characteristics consistent with the use of English malt, hops and yeast.
Brewed to survive the voyage from England to India. The long voyage and rolling seas resulted in a highly attenuated beer upon arrival. English pale ales were derived from India Pale Ales.
