Beer India Pale Ale



Martin's IPA - Beer India Pale Ale

The beer India Pale Ale was first brewed when the British ships crossed the oceans on-route to their faraway colonies. To better preserve their beloved beer during these long voyages, the English brewers added extra hops.

British Brewer John Martin honored this tradition when he landed in Antwerp in 1909 by using the unique dry hopping technique. For this technique, extra hop flowers are added at the end of the fermentation process to give the beer a fruity aroma and a bitter yet balanced flavour.

The beer Martin's IPA, the perfect alliance between British character and Belgian brewing expertise.

Taste:
