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.

330 ML can Hazy golden yellow color. Soapy white head. Holds its best at a thin layer. Nose is a lot of citrus. Quite a hop, citrus, and acid forward nose. Quite thin in the taste but packs a good punch. Highly bitter for the IBU level. Very dry and clean finish. Quite a good IPA.

lamf (75) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden with medium white head. Nice hoppy aroma, citrus, tropical fruits, maybe white fruits as well. Some kind of emptiness in taste... Bitterness isn’t more as at medium level, it’s quite dry, there’s also lack of hoppy notes. A little bit disappointed.

Hallstein (126) - Skogn, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2014
Nice, solid aroma of citrus, grapefruit, mangoes and gooseberries with a slight bready note from the malt. The flavor is full on hops with a nice balanced bitterness. The malt balances out the bitterness well. Really good. One of my go-to beers!

Hier j'ai goûté la Hardcore IPA, aujourd'hui c'est donc la Punk IPA... Je préfère la Hardcore. Élevé à la bière belge et forte, 5,6% c'est un peu léger pour moi, ça manque de corps ! Belle prestation néanmoins, jolie couleur dorée, tête de mousse absente. Arôme d'agrume remarquable pour une amertume maîtrisée malgré la sécheresse de la bière. --- Dirty Google traduction :) Yesterday I tasted the Hardcore IPA today so this is the Punk IPA ... I prefer Hardcore. Raised in the Belgian and strong beer, 5.6% is a bit light for me, it lacks body! Good performance nevertheless nice golden color, head of moss missing. Aroma of citrus for a remarkable bitterness control despite drought beer.

Bottle from "cerveteca" bar in Lisbon. Pour is pale gold with a moderate white head. Aroma is a mixture of sweet caramel with apricot and with some hint of passion fruit. Full of citrus flavor and some malt with a very light bitter aftertaste. It is moderately carbonated with a medium light body. Not as hoppy as you might expect from an IPA, but very refreshing and easy drinking, specially on a hot summer day.

Bottle @ home. I know I might be overrating this beer a bit, but it seems I return ever so often, that it has to count for something. Fresh, immense citrusy hop aroma. Taste is sweet malt, lemon, grapefruit and biscuit. Light mouthfeel and medium to high carbonation. Love it, love it, love it. - with thirst, Niklas
