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.

CBC. Light haze on this gold beer. This really is pretty much the same as the Sucker Punch, just a little drier.

Holmen1 (4891) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2013
Fra fat på CBC mai-13: vi startet her med deres Sucker Punch PA, avanserte til King Louie slik at vi var klar til å motstå en technical knock out. Forsåvidt ikke så vanskelig, da denne hadde for mye skum og for mye bitterhet i humleprofilen. Savnet den friske syrligheten, men allikevel lett å konsumere. Tydeligvis er de inspirert av amerikanske craft breweries, og de snakket også med kraftig amerikansk aksent. Uventet og spennende start på festivalen.
