Wylam Brewery - Jakehead IPA


Wylam’s Jakehead is a superb and classical India Pale Ale. It boasts a beautifully rich amber colour, while strong citrus fruit and pine aromas of the American hops sit above an earthy malt base. On the palate it is distinctly bittersweet with great complexity, a malty base adding great depth to the grapefruit and citrus highlights. A clean finish with a slightly bitter edge completes a truly wonderful experience.

    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. Today the use of high quantities of American hops has resulted in beers with floral aromas on top of a hop explosion.
