With a deep golden to amber color, Ballantine India Pale Ale is delightful to behold after a lively pour in its characteristic “tulip” pint glass, with a strong foamy head. At 7.2% ABV and with 70 IBUs of bitterness, this refreshing brew is unique among IPAs in that it has been both dry hopped as well as includes hop oils imported directly from the United Kingdom in order to capture the balanced but defined hop flavor of Peter Ballantine’s original brew. Originally aged for over a year in oak barrels, our innovative proprietary brewing method ensures that every drop of Ballantine IPA comes in contact with American oak. First introduced in America in the late 1800s, Ballantine IPA was a beer for connoisseurs. It has been credited as an inspirational influence for the present day craft beer revolution in America. Handcrafted by our master brewers, this delightfully hoppy brew resurrects its deep heritage and storied past to embody an IPA worthy of the original Ballantine name. For well over a century, the interlocking Borromean Rings showcased on our label have come to signify Purity, Body, and Flavor, just like the delicious Ballantine India Pale Ale inside. We hope you enjoy it.
