It’s an IPA, India Pale Ale, amber colored and with a strong hoppy aroma.

A beer that’s been made for thirsty people, to be drank without too much thinking, to be enjoyed while strolling down the streets on warm evenings.

In brewing Hobo we used a big amount of rye (29 %) and 10 % wheat, plus five different kinds of malted barley. We decided to use hops from America and New Zealand: we used Nelson Sauvin during FWH and in whirlpooling, while in the next two additions we used Amarillo and Cascade.

Nice copper color with a tan head. For my opinion it’s smells better, grassy and hoppy, than it tastes, some malt, citrus. Good beer, but not exceptional.

(bottle) slightly opalescent copper-amber colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of caramel, white grapes and prickly pear, with a light hint of sugar icing, some fudge and passion fruit. flavour is mostly roasted malts and toffee, slightly astringent, with some light notes of honeymelon and herbal hops in the light roasted-bitter finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

King_Alex_II (910) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Perfect clear ruby color with thin white foam head. The smell is very thin. The taste is round and slightly roasted. Nice hoppy bitterness with a very thin tartness in the throat. A light sweet body balances the beer out. The aftertaste is a little too dry and rather thin. This is a beautiful red ale. Not my favorite style, but thjs is nevertheless an excellent representative.

330 ml bottle. BB 13/Set/15. From CH-303. Grazie Asbjørn!
Cloudy mid-brown colour with a tiny off-white head. Piney and resiny hops, mild bitterness, caramel malt and a lot of sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is piney, resiny and berry hops, mild bitterness, mild tartness and caramel malt. Not that sweet. Decent.

Benzai (11783) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle @ home. Clear amber red color, huge off-white to beige head that lasts for a long time and leaves fair lacing. Aroma is malts, a hint of caramel, lightly fruity hops, a slight hint of citrus or sour, I’m not sure. Taste malts, again a hint of caramel, citrus hints and citrus bitter. Average body, soft carbonation. Drinkable for sure, but somehow not really pleasing.

Countbeer (5722) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle (33cl): Served at 14 degrees Celsius in a shaker: Big creamy head. HaY red brown body. Aroma of sweaty hops and dust hops. Grass, herbs, caramel and fruit with a yeasty edge. Not bad per se. Flavour is good malty with some creamy tones, hops, herbs, light fruity, grass, green leaves and some yeast with wood. Decent but not your average IPA. Aftertaste is grassy, herbal and more bitter. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied. Green...

loco_gallego (217) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 15, 2015
Ambrée orangée foncée. Plutôt translucide. Bonne mousse beige claire. Au nez maltage toasté un peu caramel. Houblonnage discret pour une IPA sur le pin et agrumes orange. Le tout très léger au nez. En bouche bizarre... comment dire, peu amère mais astringeante et âpre.Fin très sèche, genre pils. Peu de corps. Une des pires IPA que je connaisse... pas vraiment dans le style je dirais même...

Pours a cloudy, amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of caramel malts with some bitterness from the floral hops. Flavor is mostly sweet from the malts. Hint of bitterness on the finish with no lingering taste.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is grassy herbal and fruity hops, some biscuit and malty sweetness. Flavour is medium hop bitterness, fruity and herbal, some yeasty notes and some caramel malt in the finish. Nice.
