Midnight Train to Byker is the culmination of Wylam’s dreams of crafting an Imperial DIPA – and what a result it is. Created with an astonishing 30 grams of hops per litre, a whole load of malt and 10% ABV this is an unforgettable beer. It pours with a hazy light orange hue and boasts aromas of pineapple, grapefruit and papaya alongside sweet malt notes. On the palate it has medium-body and fine carbonation which brings alive the flavours of tropical fruit and citrus marmalade.

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.
