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).

lokis333 (216) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - OCT 14, 2015
Clear gold color with small white foam. Aroma of hops but very plain and boring. Palate smooth, has bitter aftertaste to it and very average. Taste of hops mainly, hints of citrus and malt. Over all very simple, average, nothing outstanding nothing amazing about it but nothing bad either.

jamaty (1614) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2015
Ambar clara, apenas turbidez. No mucha espuma. Aroma de predominio cereal con notas de piña. En boca cuerpo entre ligero y moderado. Bien de gas. El sabor es malteado, pan. Tira a dulce. Escaso contrapunto. Escaso amargor para una IPA, sólo un ligero amargor especiado. Buena ale en cualquier caso.

martjoobolut (2102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 9, 2015
Bottle (from SIP, Tallinn). Pours amber with whiteish head. The head stays for a second. Aroma is sweet, fruits, caramel, slight citrus. Flavor follows the nose mostly, but also has some nuttinness. Finish is dry bitter. Body is surprisingly light for ABV, it feels even watery. Overall: OK

Swaroga (1864) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2015
Marks&Spencer’s Southwold Winter IPA. The aroma is zest, herbs, cat piss, mango, strawberries. The beer is quite flat with a medium strong bitterness. Notes are herbal, cat piss. Overall dry and dull. But ...not expensive and good for thirst quenching.

Pours orange/ light brown haze colour with tiny white head. Visualy medium carbonation. Aroma without notice of an alcohol, with hints of fruits (esters of tropical fruits). Malt sweetness is medium, hop bitterness also, carbonation is soft, finish is dry sweet and bitter long lasting. Proper beer.
