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).

BenOver (243) - SLOVENIA - OCT 16, 2014
Pours slightly redish/brown, not golden, small head quickly diminishes, a very unique hoppy smell, citrus with some sweet undertone. Taste is full and very mild. It doesn’t deliver the bitternes you thought it had. It is quite sweet for an ipa beer. But it is wonderfully balanced. A great beer!

ClubGonzo (5220) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear orange body with a small white head. Aroma is almonds, grains, caramel, faint grassy notes and hints of straw. Taste is grapefruit, resinous grass notes, faint cardboard notes, band-aids, soap, caramel and hints of red berries and pineapple. Light to medium body, soft carbonation. Strange, and seems past its prime at best.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2014 Bottle from Marks and Spencer Team Valley. A curious one - the fruit and floral flavours are summery but there's a warming strength to it. Very nice indeed. (Branded as M and S Winter IPA)

Cerveja leve, frutada, cítrica e fácil de beber. Boa para o calor. Falta um pouco de amargor para o meu gosto. Pouca espuma.
