I.P.A. – Trade Winds
A heavenly aromatic, copper coloured beer. It has an aroma rich
in cascade hops spilling over into clean crisp hints of citrus.
Quickly followed by a rush of fruity malts that are pursued by
an exquisitly dry finish, full of scented hops. A Pale Ale like
it ought to be!
The tunnel, after which the brewery is named, passes through the
highest mountain range in Central England. When the tunnel was
finished it suddenly released all the easterly winds, hitherto,
trapped behind the “Ansley Alps". An immediate and
constant prevailing wind was born. This gale force wind howled
down to the south coast and way beyond as far as the Cape of Good
Hope! It filled the sagging sails of the ailing shipping fleets
and became the driving force that carried trade to and from the
Far East. This new wind, hailed as a godsend, was given a special
glorious beer, also held in high esteem, was brewed to commemorate
the “miracle gale”, and bares the same name….
(Drinker beware, this beer may have the power to release the
winds within you!)
