The hops in Innovation are the stars of the show. We used Boadicea, Columbus and Styrian Goldings to create punchy grapefruit flavours and aromas of tropical fruits. These are backed up by wheat and pale ale malted barley which add spicy, biscuit flavours and a slight touch of sweetness. The outcome is a wonderfully moreish IPA, packed full of flavour. Silver Medal Winner - The Stockholm Beer Festival 2013. (Contains barley & wheat).

Really good my favorite Adnams. Earthy hoppy goodness. You can taste the ABVs in a good way.

ippopotamo36 (992) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 16, 2014
Bottle purchased in Belgrade/Serbia and consumed in Kosovo. Pours an intense golden colour, clear with a minimal white foam which dissipates leaving bubbles on the top. Nose of fresh lime, malts, balanced notes of light hops. Some Belgian yeasty note (wtf). Mouth: low carbonation, malty overall feel, herbal end-aftertaste. A decent beer...nothing stunning. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
