India Pale Ale is an English beer style that originates from the British colonial period. This beer was hopped extra strong to survive the long sea voyage to India well, as hop was seen as particularly rich in natural preserving agents. In addition, the beer had been brewed with a higher original gravity to attract more alcohol, which of course had a preserving effect as well. Today, India Pale Ales, also called IPAs are not that strong anymore (usually 12.5° to 17° original gravity), but they are still about 5 times as much hopped. IPAs should not only taste but bitter, but have the rounded smell and aromatic taste of hops. To achieve the characteristic taste of the 7 Stern IPA, we only use American hops that give our beer its distinctive taste.

Piwo degustowane w lokalu firmowym. Kolor bursztynowy z ładną pianą, która po chwili osadza się ładnie na szkle. Aromat niestety słabo wyczuwalny. Delikatne nuty cytrusowe, wyczuwalna goryczka. Liczyłem na więcej.

Werckmeister (172) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JAN 8, 2015
amber / brownish, cloudy color, big white head which evaporates quickly. light malty smell, overall not a lot to smell here, especially not the typical fruit smells. medium body, very slick feeling on the tongue, light peppery notes, very light banana, some hemp / grains, light alcoholic taste, very light / subtle sweetness but not very obvious / well integrated, some grapefruit / other fruits noticable after a bit, light bitter finish, smooth drinking. good but a bit untypical

Pours a dark amber/light brown color, topped with a decent off-white head - very decent retention. Malty aroma with notes of fruits and some nutty notes as well. Some caramel also picked up. Taste is sweet, quite some caramel notes, later on also some fruity notes. Spicy finish. Pretty good.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small, frothy, off-white film head. Aroma has sweet malts, strawberries, light metallic. Medium carbonation, fine creamy and bone-dry mouthfeel. Flavour has good malty sweetness, light caramel, extremely bitter, grass. Very dry and bitter finish.

Saeglopur (482) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 29, 2014
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy, amber to red body, with a small, creamy, yellow head. Aroma of red berries, citrus, yeast, grains, earth, grass, herbs. Taste is pretty bitter, dry, with about the same aromas, but with the earthy grain and malt notes more present. Mouthfeel is medium to light, slick, with a medium carbonation and it finishes bitter, dry, grainy and fruity. Clearly an English style IPA. Not bad, the subtle berry notes are nice and it is pretty sessionable, but overall it is too grainy for my taste.

Erasmus_ro (1525) - Alabama, USA - APR 7, 2014
Tap @ brewpub, 04/04/14. Pours a light reddish amber with a good, yellowish-brown head. Aroma is citrus hoppiness. Taste is fairly yeast, some citrus which grows stronger as the flavor progresses. Dry, but not that bitter. Fairly strong on the malty breadiness. Good carbonation and fairly light in the mouth. A well-executed IPA though could use more bitterness.

Gurthnar (2253) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 29, 2014
Tap at the brewery. Aroma is hoppy, but lacks a bit of intensity IMO. I get fruity-resinous mix, as if citra-amarillo. Quite tempting. Lightly hazy reddish amber colour. Moderate duration of head. Taste is hoppy right from the beginning, although there is quite pronounced supporting caramel malt. The hops flavour however is not only harsh, but I would say completely inappropriate. It shows mostly earthy/grassy tart mouth-puckering quality. Tanninish vegetal matter. Definitely something wrong with this one.

Tapped at the brewpub on 21st December 2013. Brown hazy color, yet golden orange copper when flashlighted. Hoppy aroma and taste, however no American west coast style here. Typical english IPA. Hoppy finish. Refreshing. Overall quite tasty!
