COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

oh6gdx (20330) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Bottled. Slighty hazy amber colour with a mediumsized beige head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is floral and fruity with some berries and a nice caramelly and bready maltiness to it. Flavour is very nicely balanced malts and hops, giving a nice sweetish fruity, floral and musty flavour along with some nice bready notes as well as nice lingering bitterness in the finish. fully cloudy copper-brown beer under a persistent beige foam; correct lacework; flowery hoppiness with notes of berries; a good malt backbone, solid carbonation; astringent and fairly bittter, notes of umami (a recurrent property for this brewery); quite dry, citrusy hoppiness and more flowery notes in a long lingering bitterness

jmgreenuk (4341) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle at Brew Beers and Ciders, Bangkok. Poured a murky medium amber with a frothy white head and some broken white lace. The aroma is light malt hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a massive chewy malt light citrus palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.!Can’t believe what I paid for this. Not worth half of what it cost me.

bmeup (520) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2014
Murky amber colour, lots of yeasty sediment with a decent head. Bready sweet malt and floral hops. Balanced bitterness and easy in the mouth. In the middle for sure.

I’d readily have these in the fridge as a go to beer for me to enjoy, price being of course the reason not to. It has a very low IBU of 55 for an IPA, and you can tell, as there is no bitterness to speak of. Great carbonation, nice caramels and sweet hints. This would be a great watching TV beer is what this would be,
