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.

fiulijn (16644) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2011
Bottle from Galeria Kaufhof, Köln
Hazy amber color, with a medium-sized creamy head. The aroma is fresh and hoppy; at first there is some Hallertau, then more of the Citra, but the blend is interesting, not so lemony as a pure Citra hopping, more creamy; later, it’s even biscuity (must come from the malts). Good body strength, with a smooth mouthfeel; some dry toffee is the dominant flavor, different from American IPA’s, and it’s appreciated for being dry, basically; the hopping is quite strong, with nice fruity presence (bitter oranges). Notice the usage of Pilsner Malt, Wiener Malt, Caramelmalt. The final is bitter, well constructed yet bone dry, with a very light astringency.
A very interesting new version of IPA, cultural crossover.

Bottle. An almost clear one, golden in color, topped by a dense, light beige head of finger-thick size. Some lacings. There’s a touch of tooth paste in the aroma, with peaches, some pineapple, notes of malt and sugar. Decent bitterness in the flavor, but I wouldn’t bother with more of it. Peaches, generic fruitynes and some malty sugars. Medium body, super smooth on the palate. Decent bitterness in the finish. A pleasant, although a bit weak, beer. 120914
