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).

Weak hop aroma. Thin foam with thin lacing. Almost sweet bitterness. That builds up but not that much .has strange orange peel like note.

Clear dark gold, medium white head. Light grapefruit aroma - notes of perhaps faded US hops? Bittersweet, notes of roastiness (hence the colour), finishes watery and bit bitter. Medium body. Okay, not worth a second go.

ruigo (1622) - PORTUGAL - FEB 18, 2015
33cl bottle. Clear orangish golden colour with a small off-white head with not much retention. Peaches, grapefruit and citrus in the aroma. Taste is more on the sweet side with some bitterness towards the finish. Overall, a pleasant beer but not remarkable.

KW92 (599) - WARSAW, POLAND - FEB 17, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa ciemne złoto, idealnie klarowne. Piana drobna, niska.
AROMAT: Owoce tropikalne (dojrzały ananas), cytrusy (grejpfrut), ziolowość, trawa, lekki alkohol.
SMAK: Typowa angielska IPA. Przede wszystkim słodowość (zboża, delikatna karmelowość) oraz odrobinka cytrusowych akcentów, pod koniec niewielki alkohol. goryczka średnia do niskiej. Wysycenie średnie.
OGÓLNIE: Niczym szczególnym nie zachwyca. Poprawnie piwo, przyjemne w smaku (orzeźwiające), jednak za "grzeczne", nie dzieje się tu dużo.

cervmagpt (434) - PORTUGAL - FEB 11, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 14A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch HEP-1 14:22. AROMA: hop aroma with a floral and tropical fruity nature, reminiscent of sweet oranges. some resinous character is present. sweet caramelized malt background. APPEARANCE: light copper color and translucent. off-white thin head with low retention. TASTE: medium-low hop flavour with a floral and tropical fruit character. mild sweet malty background with toffe notes. medium-low bitterness that lingers into a medium-dry finish and beyond. PALATE: low body with low carbonation. OVERALL: an english IPA a bit on the dilluted side. needs more body and flavour intensity.
