Burning Sky’s Easy Answers is proof that modern IPAs don’t have to be the incredibly bitter and overpowering. Pouring a hazy pale gold with a foamy white head, Easy Answers boasts aromas of tropical fruit, mango and floral hops. Soft on the palate but with good body, with herbal and grassy flavours, purposefully subduing the bitterness has really allowed the doubled dry-hopped aroma hops shine, resulting in a light and clean IPA that really stands out.

INDIA PALE ALE (IPA) - At the height of its empire, Britain’s outposts demanded beer, but India itself was too warm for brewing. India Pale Ale was created in response, a beer that could survive the arduous journey to India. Since then, IPA has been used to describe a well-hopped, high-gravity beer. Over the decades that followed many versions were created and the style adopted by craft brewers everywhere. Today, the use of high quantities of American hops has become ever more popular, resulting in beers that offer distinct floral aromas on top of a hop explosion.
BURNING SKY was established in 2013, the result of the dream of a long-term brewer with a love of both hop forward pales and the beautiful Belgian beer tradition. Located in East Sussex countryside, Burning Sky sees itself as a true farmhouse brewery. Success and recognition has been significant, with head-brewer Mark being voted ‘Brewer of the Year 2014’ by The Guild of British Beer Writers, and the brewery being named 4th Best New Brewery in the World 2014 by RateBeer. Always ambitious, Burning Sky was the first craft brewery in the UK to install oak foudres for ageing beers in, and at the end of 2016 it completed the restoration of a Grade 2 listed building to expand its barrel ageing program, while 2017 saw the installation of a bespoke coolship to produce spontaneously fermented beers.
