India Pale Ale, or I.P.A. as it has become known, was originally developed as a strongly hopped, slightly higher ABV pale ale for export to the colonies - India in particular. At the request of The East India Company in the late 1800s, India Pale Ale was developed by several London brewers specifically for export. The common story that early IPAs were much stronger than other beers of the time, however, is a myth. While IPAs were formulated to survive long voyages by sea better than other styles of the time.

This unique collection includes:

  • Association -  The Association, flagship of the British fleet, struck the Gilstone Ledge in 1707 and sank within three minutes. It's remembered by this stunning IPA, brewed with natural Scillonian water. (ABV 4.5%)
  • Frenchman's Creek - A great IPA with a sweet flavour and floral aroma (ABV 4.8%)
  • Blisland IPA - A true to type IPA packed full of golden malts. Strong in ABV and highly hopped with Chinnook, Cascade, Citra, Pacific Jade and Pacific Gem, creating fruit and berry flavours to balance the finish. (ABV 6.5%)
  • TNT -   Light amber in colour, this American hopped IPA has a floral, citrus and apple blossom aroma, peach and grapefruit dominate the palate with a crisp bitter finish from the triple hopping. (ABV 4.8%)
  • Proper Job - A hopped golden bitter with citrus and grapefruit flavours (ABV 5.5%)
  • St Ives IPA - A traditional IPA from St Ives Brewery. IPA was originally developed as a strongly hopped, slightly higher ABV pale ale for export to the colonies, India in particular.(ABV 5.0%)
