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.

Tap at the brewery. Pours a golden color without much head or lacing. Smooth initial taste with some strong hops. Not much maltiness. The bitterness comes on strong and is the kind that stays in your mouth for the rest of the night- a negative for me. OK but not great overall.

Pyobon (1251) - 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.
