Notes

On a sea voyage, Namibia is roughly half way to India.

The previous IPA to this one that I brewed was in the realms of a true old-style strength, 6.2% at racking so probably a little stronger by the time it reached the glass.

Namibia Pale Ale was an attempt to maintain the beautiful hop character but tone down the alcohol level so you could have more than one without falling off your chair. However something went wrong with the mashing/sparging process, probably too high a temperature, and the ABV at racking was only about 3.6%

That's probably only half the strength of the traditional true IPA, therefore it's about half way there, the same as Namibia :)
