This fresh, full flavour natural beer is our tribute to the classic IPAs of yester-year. The post modern twist is the addition of amazing fruity hops giving an explosion of tropical fruit flavours and a sharp bitter finish.

uckelman (314) - Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2014
Pours light amber, hazy. Head dissipates quickly. Aroma is piney and floral, but not citrus. Full body, slick/velvety/round mouthfeel. Not a bad West Coast-style IPA.

sarauckelman (210) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2014
Clear amber-lemon; not much head but a film of irridescent bubbles of various sizes. Aroma of "bathroom floral": a hint of rosewater, a hint of PineSol. Fresh spicy flavor followed by bitterness, and then by rosewater. Will be good with our pizza, but on its own, a bit too bitter for my taste.

lobs_ols (138) - LATVIA - NOV 14, 2014
Opaque gold, strong white head. Light Simcoe on the nose - fruity, but very vague. Noticeably bitter with a hint of sour - definite tropical fruit notes. Dry and bitter finish. Good.

eManu (458) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2014
From draft at Taps KL. Hazy blonde with a thin white head. Very light aroma of hops and malts. Flavors of hops, caramel malts, herbs. Not well balanced, quite sweet for an hoppy ale. A bit queamish.

Interesting take on the modern American-style IPA - the blend of hops gives it a unique taste that distinguishes it from other beers of this style, which can too often be a bit samey. The aroma is very fresh, and has fruity notes as well as the usual citrus and resin. However, it seems to lack some malt balance as is common for this type of beer, and by the end of the bottle, nothing but hops can get a little monotonous. Still, overall a good refreshing beer, and a very welcome addition to the usual supermarket bottle choices.

Padchenko (89) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 13, 2014
Pint - did not intentionally order a pint. This is actually better from a bottle as it when it’s a little warmer it can be a little sickening by the end of the pint. That said, this is a tasty IPA with lots of flavour. Limited head. Will sample again - but definitely in a smaller measure than a pint

sharkydodson (297) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - NOV 11, 2014
the aroma of pine needles, citrus and mango with some herbal notes... the taste of grapefruit, pine needles, tropical fruits - mango and passionfruit, some spices... bright hoppy bitterness... bitter spicy aftertaste... nice IPA...

Amber colored beer with a small white head, high carbonation. Smells like hops. Taste is bitter hoppy, fruity, cirtrus and little sweetness Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Good beer, easy to drink.
