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.

sharkydodson (242) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - OCT 3, 2014
nice aroma of citrus and pine - due to Citra hop... the taste is malty, fruity and very spicy... very intensive hopping... sweet, bitter and dry aftertaste... German IPA appeared to be very nice...

Lore (1104) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 14, 2014
dark golden to orange colour, huge, long lasting off-white head; aroma of biscuit, caramel, apricot and slight citrusy-tropical fruity notes, similar taste with some piney notes and alcohol - a bit too sweet IPA, but very drinkable

Aroma: citrus, hay, grass; Appearance: pale dark gold, large foamy head; Taste: medium sweetness, slight bitterness, slight sourness; Palate: abrupt finish, fizzy carbonation, slick texture, average body Adding Hallertauer hop to this beer completely spoilt it... Instead of a decent malty IPA you get a sweet IPA-lager hybrid tailor-made for the taste of a typical Wurst and Sauerkraut eater. German hops just don’t go well with IPAs. Should have just added more Magnum and Citra. Disappointing, definitely not worth 10 Euro for a 750 ml bottle.
