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.

Pours golden with a foamy white head which fades to a ring and gradually to nothing. Aroma of grassy hops, tropical fruit, orange and some floral and alcohol hints. Taste of malts, sweetness and tropical fruit, followed by some light hops and earthy bitterness. Some spicy notes, medium carbonation. A fantastic beer.

Bottle, pours clear and bright with firm head. Smells very clear and bright. Hay, oranges and lemons. Tastes very hoppy with bitter,almost sour notes. A little cream through to the end to round off the citrus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FZrisk og spenstig sak fra brew dog. Litt for bitter for min smak men absolutt verdt å smake og nyte.... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jamedra (389) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 29, 2014
Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je příjemné, chmelové s ovocným nádechem. Pěna je jasně bílá, jemná, středně vysoká a pomalu mizící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá. Chuť je velmi lahodná, svěží a šťavnatá, má velmi výrazný pomerančový nádech, finiš je příjemně hořký a držící. V ústech pivo působí lehce, je vysoké pitelnosti a má střední říz. Celkově se jedná o velmi příjemné pivo, které by se s klidem dalo pít celou noc.

Per essere una birra contro č oramai un classico. Cosa si puň aggiungere? Tanto luppolo, tanto erbaceo, tanta roba. Anche troppa.

Can 33cl. Clear amber, large foamy white head, settles to a thin rim, nice lacing; at first smell of overripe fruity, aroma of apricot, orange, tangerine, citrus, marmalade, spruce, ginger, pungent hops; taste is moderate sweet and fruity (citrus, orange), slightly bitter; oily texture (a bit thin but not watery), medium body, lively carbonation; bitter hoppy finish with a little malty sweetness and touch of citrus.

rangerred (866) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber. Pours a hazy medium gold with a very thin, fizzy white head that settles to just a thin ring around the edge of the glass. Not impressive. Aroma has some overripe fruit character made up of oranges and tangerines. Maybe a touch of grapefruit thrown in there as well. A light touch of toasted malt. Flavor is lacking in intensity unfortunately. Orange and tangerine dominate with some juiciness but it is a little too subdued. Bitterness is only moderate as well. Malt is in the background and props up the body but barely; just a bit of toast. The mouthfeel is probably the worst thing about this beer. Just watery all the way around. Overall, I was expecting a bit more out of this beer. It just doesn’t really stand up to some of the great IPA’s being produced today. This might have been a standout beer in the U.K. years ago but I feel that probably isn’t the case any longer.

Absolut den bedste IPA på markedet i forhold til pris. Dejlig duft og nøddebrun farve. Genial øl!

Hazy orange, airy white head, some lacing. Hoppy aroma, some citrus. Clean, crisp taste, hops and delicate, slightly dry bitterness. Refreshing and very drinkable.
