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 (4962) - 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.

Swaroga (1826) - 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.
