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.

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 (9439) - 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 (4974) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, 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 (212) - 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.

Im Glas: Bernsteinfarben, feiner flüchtiger Schaum. Nase: Honigmelone, Kiwi, Zitrusfrüchte. Im Mund: Melone, Honig, Zitrusfrüchte. Für ein IPA sehr mild, am Gaumen lang anhaltende fruchtige Noten. Gefälliges Bier von dem man auch mehr trinken kann.

eduardovl (1003) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a dark amber color forming a small creamy tan head that dissipates quickly leaving only few lacings in the glass S: Strong notes of caramel malts. Roasted malts and flowery, grassy and a bit earthy hops T: Slightly sweet upfront. Caramel, caramel malts. Good hops bitterness. Hops are citrus and earthy. In overall, a dry and smooth taste. Balanced M: Light to medium body. Good carbonation. Caramel malts and flowery hops aftertaste O: Decent and drinkable but difficult to call it an IPA. It’s more for over hopped British bitter [ BA Review @ 7/1/2013 ]

(Flasche) Es hat eine bernsteinerne Farbe, leicht trüb mit einer fast weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist würzig, fruchtig, mit Quitte und einer Spur Erdbeere. Der Geschmack ist fast wässrig, bitter, harzig mit einer leichten metallischen Note. Diese metallische Note bleibt im Abgang aber die fruchtige Note überwiegt.

33 cL bottle at home. Pours hazy dark brown with a medium off-white head. Not quite what I was expecting. Aroma is a bit grassy with some rye and caramel. Taste is a bit malty and a bit bland. Not much hoppiness. Medium body and carbo.
