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 a clear, light golden appearance with an off white head. Kind of spicy, earthy, herbal hoppy, bready nose. A bit juicy flavor. Some citrusy. Chewy bready flavor. Pass.

Benzai (11364) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2014
Bottle @ Kings Day Tasting 2014 shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear yellowish color, small white head. Aroma is lightly malty, a bit sweetish, nicely hoppy, quite fruity. Taste lightly malts, again quite fruity, nicely hoppy. A bit too much sweetness though. Average body and carbonation.

Bottle @ KDT14 @ benzai. Slightly hazy orange colour with a small to medium sized white head. Smells very malty, sweet.. Not much to say. Tastes very sweet, malty, raisins, roze kermis zoetstok.. I don’t like this. Medium body, soft carbo.

omega (848) - NEW ZEALAND - APR 25, 2014
Thinking I may have got a dud bottle here as I got quite a metallic taste from the bottle. Also quite sour with almost a belgian yeast like quality. Quite sweet and honeyed. Hate doing reviews where I know I need to relook at to confirm...

Surprisingly pours with no head. Lovely apricot, peach nose. Crispy fruity malt, sweet citrus, green apple, hoppy finish. Quite a flavorful fruity ale, fairly mild bitterness and well-balanced sweetness.

StueyD (1543) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2014
A mid yellow-orange coloured beer with a weak white head. A light dry hopped aroma, piney, grassy and resinous. Dry mouthfeel. A tart hop taste to start, pithy citrus, piney and resinous, grassy and hoppy. There is a background malt that does mellow the hoppiness, making the finish a lot smoother. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tomekk1978 (1073) - Ząbki, POLAND - APR 11, 2014
Barwa: złota, klarowna. Piana biała, szybko opadająca. Aromat: słodowo - chmielowy (cytrusy, grejpfrut), bardzo przyjemny. Smak: Słodowy, ale nie słodki, goryczka konkretna, ale dość krótka. Zaskakująco amerykańskie, jak na angielskie piwo.

mt_hall (174) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2014
Bottled. Clear amber colour with a small off-white head. Malt, caramel, and some fruit aromas. Warming alcohol, sweetish fruity start, and a dry, bitter, licorice and resin finish. Slightly oily, but overall thinner that I was expecting for the ABV. Not bad.

Bottle, pours amber with a thin lasting head, aromas of of tangerine, grapefruit and faintly of pine. Bitter-sweet body with more citrus notes plus faint touches mango and an undercurrent of biscuit, a little pepper and herbal bitterness in the finish.
