COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stilbeschreibung: India Pale Ale entstand Anfang des 18. Jahrhunderts. Um den langen Seeweg nach Indien zu überstehen, wurde das Bier mit einer hohen Stammwürze eingebraut und zusätzlich mit einer großen Menge an Hopfen versetzt. Teilweise gab man den Hopfen direkt in die Transportfässer. Besonderheiten: Progusta betont die Charakteristik der verwendeten Hopfensorten. Die Bitternote ist genau auf diese abgestimmt. Als Hopfensorten für das Hopfenaroma wurde die amerikanische Sorte Citra und die deutsche Sorte Hallertauer Mittelfrüh verwendet. Zwei Sorten, die sich ideal ergänzen. Die nach der Gärung verbleibende Restsüße korrespondiert toll mit der Bitternote. Verkostungsnotiz: Rötliche Farbe, mittelstarke Schaumbildung. Dezentes Mousseux. Schmeckt sehr aromatisch, unterbreitet Früchte wie Aprikose und Orange, dazu Cashewnüsse, gewürzt mit mildem Curry und einer Prise Ingwer, betont von sanfter Süße und ausgewogener Bitterkeit. Die Textur wirkt samtig. Zeigt gute Länge.

resin, grass, citrus, banana, amber, orange, clear, white foam, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour, medium body, oily feel, bitter. Not a bad IPA for a German maker. Not my favorite but drinkable. Why to all German beers have that banana palate?

fdomig (315) - München, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2013
750ml bottle. Aroma is citrus, hops, very, very good. Appearance is clear amber with a huge white foam. Taste is complex, some sweetness but a clear bitterness and dryness in the end. A soft carbonation, nice mouthfeel, quite easy for an IPA. However, a very good beer. A bit too pricey overall.

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2013
The fancy 75cl bottle with a punt deep enough to get lost in, picked up at Rudat GmbH in Dortmund, pours with a clear copper body with golden hues and supporting a dirty white head of foam. The mild aroma offers up some citrus, a bit of yeast and a faint spiciness. The taste begins with a full flavor hit of sweetened tangerine and grapefruit hop flavor as well as an initial rush of citrus hop bitterness. The hop bitterness rolls off pretty quick leaving a tasty malt sweetened citrus sensation as this heads into the finish. At the end there’s a mild citrus bitterness that comes weakly to the surface to help close out the experience. Overall a pretty tasty IPA product that is a bit lean on hop bitterness but not by much. I like it and the aroma picked up nicely as it warmed.
