This brew bursts with hop character while still achieving a sublime balance due to a firm, robust malt backbone. It is a cross between an English-style and American-style India Pale Ale that is full-bodied and refreshing all at once.

Abijen (2379) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2015
Schenkt een oranje honing achtig kleurig bier met een goede witte schuim kraag. Ruikt mout, honing, hops. Niet echt ipa. Smaakt kruidig, honing en bitter. Weinig hops of fruitig. Veel carbo.

Aroma of malt, fruits, floral notes, herbal notes, hint of hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a moderate bitter finish. On the restrained English side of IPA. Smooth and nicely balanced.

Vighals (2715) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2015
Grumsete brun med fingerhøyt beige skum. Lukter ananas, eple og appelsin. Mild bitterhet som kommer sent, noe maltig smak mot karamell og noe sjokolade.

willisread (2038) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 20, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2015 Rerate: Tap at Naka-meguro taproom. Very malt-foward aroma with some apricot, raisin and prune and light grassy hops in the background. Very malt-foward IPA. Very British in a way. Full-bodied with average carbonation. Fruity and malty finish. Did the recipe change? I don’t know...On tap at Nakameguro Taproom. Served in a stemmed tulip. Hazy golden orange color with a nice soapy white head that lasted almost throughout. Big fruity and resiny aroma present on the nose: pineapple, papaya and pine needles. Very well balanced on the palate with a a very hop-forward bitterness that shines through with a a nice sweet malty foundation to hold it up. Creamy mouthfeel with a nice long dry bitter finish. Solid IPA.
