COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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).

Pours very light almost like a lager. Aroma is filled with banana. Taste is malty even a bit stale with citrus hop finish. Very disappointing.

Clear, deep golden beer with a thin filmy head. Light bitter lemon scent. Flavour is hoppy citrus with a touch of other fruit (apple maybe?) coming through giving it quite a mellow quality. Not spectacular but very drinkable.

If you lie low enough for long enough you can potentially be as innovative as you like. Itís all nonsense of course but then pretence was always part of the er... pretence. Do you remover the funny caterpillar thing on sticks that danced across the screen before we started pretending? Itís alright but itís not wine or whisky which is where the time adverbial can be found.

Clear orangy color with a white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is hoppy and floral, with orange, peach and pineapple. Taste is rich in sweet citrus fruits, very floral and with peach and grapefruit hints. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Interesting IPA.

330ml bottle, pours hazy golden with a smal white head. Aroma is wheat and caramel malt, toffee apple, grapefruit citrus, mince pie. Nice balance of flavours. medium sweetness, lightly bitter, full body, oily feel, soft carbonation.

Foffern (1687) - BodÝ, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle at home. Has a clear orange colour with a very small head. Fruity aroma with citrus, caramel, spices, tropical fruits, oranges and banana. The flavour is also fruity with grapefruit, hay and more tropical fruits. Has a slick and silky mouth feel, and a light bitterness. An incredibly fruity IPA, but the bitterness is pretty low.

330 ml bottle. Golden pour with small head. Grapefruit and wheat favouring. Not really to my taste.

Good Pale Ale, bit watery. Smells and taste citrous. Medium bitter end. I like it quite much, but isnít farly the best in its kind.

Benderone (49) - FRANCE - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle 330ml BB: 31/09/15. Pours a gold color with no head. Taste is a typical british IPA, no resinous hops, herbal with hints of caramel. Medium bodied with very low carbonation. ok but maybe would be better with more carbonation.
