When what to my wondering yes should appear? An olive-green labeled bottle that I couldn't recall having seen before (Yes I, unlike so many more learned beer connoisseurs am occasionally drawn in by label design). Lo and behold, Bass is releasing and IPA to the American market.
It was Bass who helped to make not only Pale Ale, but IPA famous. It was them and the the other Burton-on-Trent brewers that built the beers that so many myth have been told about. It was Bass and Allsopp who beat Hogdson in the Indian beer market, and it was Bass who battled Allsopp for control of that market, but it would be Bass who would ultimately win, not only in India, but across the globe.
The bottle fit the bill, long necked with its classic oval label and the Bass trademark—the scarlet triangle. There it was clear as day: India Pale Ale—Bass IPA—Brewed By William Bass & Co's. Baldwinsville, NY.
There seems to be typo on the label.
