This drink, which we define as an 'IPA', has a strength of 6.5% ABV.
This is a very hoppy IPA with a juicy, citrusy flavour.
According to the people at Gadds', East Kent Goldings are THE finest hops in the world for balance, subtlety and finesse.
With this in mind, they brew a 6.5% pale ale stuffed full of them, and then dry hop it with an eye watering amount more. The result is neither balanced nor subtle, but it is hoppy and ever so drinkable.
What's more this ale doesn't seem to know where in the world it's from! Is it India (after-all, the I in IPA means India) - or East Kent?
