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).

kufdam (159) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2014
500ml bottle from Marks and Spencer in Earley. Another really decent beer in this range. Initial alcohol but this is 6.7% so deal with it. Malt and resin hop. Some honey.

Mjp12 (824) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Bit of a mixed brew. Aroma is quite boozy malt, rather than fruity hops. Some bitterness, but very sweet for a 6.7abv beer.

Trappist1 (646) - Diest, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2014
From tap @ Delirium, hoppy loft. Golden color, white head. Fruity aroma. Medium body, very dry but rather sophisticated fruitiness Ends dry. Would call this a very good mixture between American and English style. well made.

SlackerMads (2222) - DENMARK - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle. Clear copper with a medium sized white head. Citrusy and flowery hops in the nose. Flavour is medium hoppy (citrus, dry flowers, grass, light herbal) and light malty (biscuit, bread), light peppery. Light/medium body, light sweet and medium bitter, oily texture, soft/average carbonation. Easy drinking, light dry and bitter finish. Nothing fancy, but pleasant.

A tropical aroma that also delivers in the taste. Got the spicy crispness of hops all the way through. Wonderful bitter, citrus finish.

tompete (246) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
On tap at the wharf. Clear gold with a white lacy head. Aroma is some kind of candy smelling spice! Spicy! Whut? Flavour backs it with spicy hops and flowery hops. Some malt, but not overly bitter. Body is a little thin. Finish is warm.

kidmartinek (3856) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2014
There are so many things right with this beer and so many wrong with the way the brewer describes it. Its hazy golden and dense with a white head and looks like a hefe. The lacing is light, white and intricate as is the delicate white head. The aroma is malted wheat and bittering hops. It tastes more.like 75% traditiinal IPA and 15% hefe with 10% bullshit added in to finish it off. While it tastes and rates quite well the description and adulterated brewing methid is rubbish. Next time, make a great beer. Just shio it in a plain glass bottle.

martinrumsam (562) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle. Amber gold with small lingering white head. Distinctive piney grapefruit aroma. Taste is orangey grapefruit increasing hop bitterness sweet to start. Alcohol afterglow and a continuing pleasant bitterness. Low carbonation Very nice
