COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and keg: Filtered. Cask: Unfiltered.
Ingredients: Marris Otter Extra Pale Malt; Chinook, Simcoe, Ahtanum, Nelson Sauvin hops. IBUs 45
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.

Nice golden/orange coloured beer with a thick white head. The aroma reminds me of fruits, hops and resin. The tase is dominated by the fruits. Starts out very sweet and finishes slightly bitter. An amazing beer. Deserves all the hype.

Saveur très fruitée , on notera une touche resineuse type pin . On regrettera l’amertume de la finale qui vient perturber l’équilibre de cette bière et camoufle son arome

Viktor_Jaques (3) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2015 does not count
Had this in London at the end of 2014 and it summed up the best experiences of the year I felt (a great year for beer btw). Although light it packs quite a punch and reminded me of the old unfiltered Ratsherrn pale Ale, Riedenburgers Dolden Sud, Crews PAs... modern classics if you wish (I live in Hamburg, so from a German perspective). It is a great beer. I can’t believe this is only 35 IBUs; being low in sugar and alcohol it comes across way sharper and fresher (well it says 45 IBU elsewhere I see now). In the midst of a rainy London December, this made me think of summer again. Shows the essence of an IPA; perhaps less post modern, than prototypical.

leebotton (260) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2015
Orangey, zingy marmalade aroma with bright fruit and a subtle hint of honey. Tastes like dry fruit / stonefruit, a bit of dustiness and nectarous honey. It’s BrewDog’s Punk IPA

Piwo po Bardzo ciekawy aromat. Po otworzeniu butelki faktycznie aromaty w takiej kolejności : liczi potem ananas oraz grejpfrut im dluzej sie wdycha, grejpfrut silniej wyczuwalny .Piana srednia ,nasycenie niskie ,kolor bursztyowy ,piwo zmętnione. Smak głeboki moze nie tak głeboki jak Innis &gunn Toasted Oak IPA ale przyjemny z poziomem goryczki dlugo utrzymujacej sie jak na 45 ibu . Po odejsciu goryczki aftertaste owocu Liczi zwanej także śliwką chińską . Dobre piwo

0.33l Hazy golden, white thin head. Aroma: fruits, pine, nicely hopsy. Taste is smooth caramel and citrus. Aftertaste of hops at the end. Medium body and carbonisation. Drinkable one after one.

Grassy and pine aroma. Not much head. Very bitter pine flavour and also green grass. Strong taste and aftertaste but pretty straight forward

660ml bottle. What a beauty. Almost perfect in appearance, aroma and palate. One for the hop fans of which I am most definitely one.

I really like this beer. The fruity citrus aroma gives a wow factor and is very appealing to me. The appearance is avg- standard honey color, nothing exciting there. The taste is the predictable mix of grspefruit and hops, and surprisingly with a very complete finish that is not too bitter. Palate i find average, a but bittery abs spicy for my taste but not bad for this style of IPA
