Bull Creek Tommy Raj IPA
India Pale Ale (IPA)
Beginning in the late 18th century, English brewers crafted pale ales specifically for export to British occupiers in India. Use of the term “India Pale Ale” (IPA) first appeared in print in 1829, and referred to pale ale that was heavily malted, highly hopped, and sporting higher alcohol levels than its English pale ale cousins. The exaggerated characteristics of the IPA style were thought to preserve the brew during its long voyage to India. Bow Brewery was the preferred IPA producer for the East India Company, although many other breweries produced the style for export and domestic consumption as well. Some accounts of the British occupational periods claim a portion of each shipment was watered down for the army troops, while the remaining full-strength portions were destined for the enjoyment of officers and British Elite. Hops are the dominant force in our Tommy Raj® IPA. Expect a bold, uniquely flavorful brew with a solid malt foundation supporting a strong, citrus hop presence.
