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.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2013
Draught at Mikkeller Bar. Cloudy amber with a decent white head. Light sweet aroma of caramel, fruity and citrusy hops. Almost creamy texture, very smooth mouthfeel, nice malty backbone, well balanced american hops, that provides some pine in the finish and a sneaking bitterness. Zesty one. Very well made. .

I didnít think the aroma was very pronounced. Taste of citrus and a bit bitter. A nice IPA.

On tap at the brewpub. Hazy golden with a good head. Regreshing citrussy hop nose, followed by punchent and lingering bitterness. Best beer in China?

Golden color. Nice frothy white head. Whoa. WTF. Starts with nice piney bitterness then a massive caramel malt drops in and smack the back of the tounge. Two completely separate layers. Full bodied. Need a bit more hops and abv an it would have been unreal. Still a very good beer. Again the brewer here knows what he is doing

Again, a couple of bonus points for being this good in China. New brewer, same name. Rich golden beer, small head by the time it came to the table on the third floor, great lacing. Truly massive nose of American hops, and a hop slam taste to match. Bitter, orange and grapefruit and pine tar ... among the best IPAs i have ever had, actually, and bonus points for being true to type and courageously over the top for China.
