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.

Arcanor (57) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2013
Source : Private Import from Office des Grands Crus, 330ml bottle batch 045. Appearance : Golden and a bit hazy, small head. Aroma : Citrus, hoppy, strong smell of Chinook and pineapple. Taste : Because of its aroma, I was expecting a stronger taste of Hops, the Chinook disappear and the Nelson Sauvin take the space. Palate : Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall : Nice sunny day beer.

HULK777 (327) - - MAY 27, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2013 Fruity hop aroma with lots of apricots. All kinds of exotic fruits in the flavor, well balanced. Boring aftertaste. Re-rated 131221, rumor speaks about a new version? Lots of gooseberry added.

Braastad (362) - FINLAND - MAY 27, 2013
Nice creamy head. Aroma has grape, tropical fruit and pine. Taste is much the same, sweet and nicely bitter. A bit thin of course.

elbernays (391) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 25, 2013
Pours a cloudy orange colour. Good head which holds well. Citrus smells. Nice bubbles on initial sip which accompanies the initial citrus system hoppy taste. Limited bitterness on aftertaste which craves more.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 23, 2013
A - Pours a hazy golden orange with 1.5 finger white head. Stellar retention with loads of lacing from top to bottom. S - Floral, buttery biscuits, cheesy sulphur yeast, lemon zest. Cheese dominates as it warms. T - Floral hops with a buttery pale malt. Lemon zest starts opening up with a spicy bitterness. The buttery cracker pale malt is a strange mix with the lemon rind hops. Crisp finish with some lemon and leafy hop bitterness lingering. M - Moderate carbonation, full side of medium body. Great looking beer! A cracker based pale malt with lots of leafy and lemon zest hops. The light buttery flavor didn’t help. It almost has a lager yeast character. Different but the perfume/lemon hops seems forced on top of the simple pale malt. Serving type: on-tap 11-20-2011

a_cross (593) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2013
Gold, thin bubbly white head; lovely hoppy, tropical fruit aroma; hops dominate the flavour - some lemon, some grapefruit; dusty, dry finish; nice enough, but disappointing not to find the anticipated Jaipur-like amazingness from one of the seemingly touchstone beers of the British craft beer explosion.

ogivlado (5539) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 22, 2013
Bottled 330ml. -from www.beershop.hr, Zagreb. Clear to darker golden coloured, medium sized off-white head, aromatic grapefruity nose. Moderate malty, fruity hoppy, mild caramel and some spices with mild bitterness in the finish. Pleasant brew.

HeistAlmighty (1110) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 20, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours amber with only a slight haze, moderate white head. Aroma is bready malt and pine and grapefruit hops. Taste is pretty much the same, maybe a little earthy in there too. Body was a little thinner than I was expecting, but not too light. Overall, this was pretty much text book IPA. Nothing especially unique, just hit all the right notes.

Valgreen (632) - DENMARK - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle at home 20/5 2013. Opaque orange, with a big white head. Hoppy aroma, with some grapefruit, citrus, grass and some sweetness. A clear hoppy taste, that lingers. At the price it is amazing.

EddyBeer1 (832) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2013
Blonde dorée légèrement trouble, quasi-asence de pétillance, mousse presque inexistante. Bien houblonnée et épicée, caramélisée, arrière-goût fruité, un rien de douceur, petite sécheresse sur la fin. Première IPA pour moi, merci au boss du Malting Pot de me l’avoir fait découvir.
