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).

janubio (605) - SPAIN - JUL 13, 2015
Deep golden colour, almost non existatn head that does not hold, not lace. Smell of tropical fruits, with some caramel notes. Medium body, soft carbonation. Taste of tropical fruits, some caramel and spices, bitter finish. Iím not sure if conservation failed, but itís too flat and simple.

Tariczny (74) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 12, 2015
Nice golden color with small white head. Aroma was not so great, full of esters, bananas and maybe a little notes from hops. Sweet taste without bitterness also full of bananas and esters. Maybe all of that was caused by long sun exposure in shop or something else.

Niller (1222) - Hammel, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2015
Tap@Charlies Bar, Copenhagen. Pours orange with medium white head. Malty caramel, medium undertones of citrus in there but, a little bit messy, on the palate for me. Ok overall.

Nonshaugen (329) - Fetsund, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2015
Slightly cloudy, golden pour, not much head, minimal lacing. 6,7% ABV gives an unpleasant hint of alcohol to the aroma along with the hops and malt notes thatís in there. Donít like the aroma. Well carbonated and bitter flavour, again that unpleasant taste of alcohol, along with a hint of dark fruits in the aftertaste. Huge fan of Adnams I am, but this is not their best.... Sorry....

MayumiH (703) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2015
Bottle at Victoria & Albert Museum, visiting Alexander McQueen exhibition. Moderately malty, hoppy, bitter for sure. Could do with more citrus, I reckon. A bit lacking in depth. Okay IPA.

Brix (647) - DENMARK - JUN 8, 2015
Tasted 2015-06-08. Clear golden - almost amber - colour. No head whatsoever. Seems filtered. Nutty, hoppy aroma. Slightly bready. Only lightly carbonated. Very little bitterness for an IPA. A little on the boozy side. Overall pleasant and drinkable, but I expect more from an IPA at 6.7% ABV.

Pours really well. Fruity and upbeat aroma. Looks gorgeous. Quite a thick and treacly taste. Which is odd given the appearance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
