In a nutshell: A powerfully hoppy IPA from Curious Brew of Tenterden, Kent.
The lowdown: Brewed using the finest pale ale malt and three complementary hops, English Golding the fresh, sweet king of English hops, Chinook with its punchy and spicy aromatics and Cascade. The result is an IPA of balance and powerful flavour.
The long established Chapel Down wine estate from Tenterden in Kent launched diversified their drinks range a decade or so ago and one of the first products from this venture is the successful Curious Brew range.
Made in collaboration with Sussex brewers Hepworth Chapel Down's winemakers had a firm hand in the early concept for the beers. Made with British ingredients, the beers are famously re-fermented with sparkling wine yeast before a dosage is added alongside dry hops.
