A special style of pale ale that has high hop bitterness, flavor, aroma and a higher alcohol content. Originally brewed in England for the long trip to India when additional hops were added for preservation. Boxing Cat TKO IPA has a medium body with some maltiness. Three different hop varieties contribute estery citrus and tangerine notes to this fine light orange-copper color beer. Dry-hopped aggressively with Simcoe and Amarillo hops.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Pyobon (1262) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 1, 2015
(On tap) Clear golden yellow with some white head. Lemony aroma. Nice palate - medium bodied with smooth mouth filling carbonation. Flavour is hop dominated, in a good way. There’s some pleasant caramel sweetness giving balance. There’s plenty of hoppy bitterness in the finish but not overwhelming. Nice hoppy APA.
