Oakham Ales Green Devil IPA has been named Champion Cask Ale at The International Brewing Awards 2015. The Brewery picked up the Champion title in 2013 when it last ran.
More than 400 people attended the celebration, among them many of the brewers and cider makers from all over the world who had entered the bi-annual competition.
Adrian Posnett, Managing Director of Oakham Ales commented: “To be awarded Champion Cask Ale for Green Devil IPA twice, in competition with 23 other countries is incredible. Green Devil IPA has won seven gold medals and fourteen awards in total, since we launched the beer just five years ago, including being named Supreme Champion at the national SIBA (Society of Independent Brewers) Awards in 2012. Praise indeed for our creative and hard-working brewery team.
Green Devil IPA has an A.B.V of 6%. It has a fantastic hop harvest aroma with tropical fruit bursting through. Starting with smooth and fruity passion fruit, pineapple and mango the beer later develops into lemon, limes and a citrusy bitterness. Green Devil IPA finishes with a crisp refreshing dry aftertaste.
Launched in craft keg format at the end of March 2014 the champion beer is also available in bottle through major multiples and selected independents.
