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).

Bottle from Adnams cellar. Definitely the pick of the JB bunch, and the only one that actually does what it claims. Big punch of tropical fruit, surprisingly low on bitterness however. Decent.

Ipa molto buona caratterizzata da un’esplosione luppolata di frutta tropicale, con una sfumatura aromatica molto delicata sullo sfondo. Buona!

Tap@ahven. Golden, clear. Fruity nose, with watermelon, tropicality, some pines and a bit old murky malts. Med light body. Kiwis, pomegranate, grapefruit and old leaves. Doesn’t feel like a proper hop bomb, even if it has a lot of hoppy flavours. It’s all sort of mixed with a slight murky, light caramel, maltyness. Which is a bit cream corny actually. Feels old, actually (might well be). Ok drink though.

330ml bottle. Clear orange-gold amber colour, foamy white head leaving some lacing and aroma of caramel, melon, citrus, vanilla, cinnamon. Taste is malt caramel with a vanilla note and peppery, spicy grapefruit bitterness. Soapy mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry & warming lingering spicy bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

Bit middle of the road. Reminds me a bit of White Shield. Nicely balanced with good lacing. Fresh tasting. Not disappointing but probably won’t buy again.

330ml bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Pours shiny gold with a light fruity citrus aroma. Taste presents some distinct tangerine alongside some orange pith. Delicious, moderately sweet and very drinkable, with a bitter citrus finish.
