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).

reebtogi (5686) - Edmonton, Alberta, - OCT 7, 2012
500ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that has some decent retention and also leaves some nice lacing behind. Aroma is tropical fruits and citrus with some mild grains. Taste is a grapefruit hop bitterness with some tropical fruity and light malty sweetness. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. A nicely done IPA that is certainly worthy of a pleasant tasting experience.

TEJA (2426) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2016
Botle shared by Björn, thanks. Short off white head. Clear pale yellow color. Very nice hop aroma from non american hops. Medium to big hop taste but a bit low bitterness for an IPA. Well fermented and some pale maltiness in the taste but no caramell taste. Big drinkabillity.
