BrewDog – Punk IPA

Punk IPA

Our scene-stealing flagship is an India Pale Ale that has become a byword for craft beer rebellion; synonymous with the insurgency against mass-produced, lowest common denominator beer. Punk IPA charges the barricades to fly its colours from the ramparts – full-on, full-flavour; at full-throttle.

Layered with new world hops to create an explosion of tropical fruit and an all-out riot of grapefruit, pineapple and lychee before a spiky bitter finish, this is transatlantic fusion running at the fences of lost empires.

Nothing will ever be the same again.

Hop Art – Golden IPA

This is a traditional English style of strong, powerfully hopped ale.

Hop Art has taken inspiration from the American craft beer approach of massive hop aroma but with a unique balance to create a contemporary India Pale Ale.

Pale and Crystal malts provide a golden biscuity canvas for the hops. Simcoe, Ahtanum, Admiral and Cascade combine here with late dry-hopping to deliver a hedonistic, hoppy hit.

Adnams Ghost Ship

At 4.5% abv, this Pale Ale has a good assertive pithy bitterness and a malty backbone. It is brewed with a selection of malts – Pale Ale, Rye and Cara – plus Citra, and a blend of other American hop varieties to create some great citrus flavours.

Ghost Ship was adapted from a recipe for Deathly Pale Ale which was withdrawn from sales because the skull and cross-bones lablel was too similar to the poison symbol.
