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.

fkoolen (387) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2013 Head is quickly gone, colour is somewhere between yellow and amber. Carbonization gives a vibrant mouth-feeling to the fresh tropical fruity flavours and exotic hops. Highly enjoyable beer for the summertime.

Panzuriel (1373) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Punk IPA pours a cloudy apple juice amber with a thin head of small bubbles. Nose is strong hops, primarily of cedar and pine needles. Taste is same of the nose, pine needles and a bit of an acrid tang that is reminsicent of grapefruit. Body is fizzy. finish is long, but pleasant as hops slowly fade. Nice beer.

Armadill0 (284) - FINLAND - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle. Light yellow, mid foggy. Little white head. Aroma is strongly fruity with a distinct piny flavor. Aroma is really strong from the start on. Pine, fruit, citrus. Lingering bitter hoppy aftertaste. Rather strong carbonation. Some alcohol creeps through. A really good solid IPA.

rumproasts (3459) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 14, 2013
bottle. Amber with small head. This bottle is definitely past its prime, but I’m not holding that against this beer -- still quite tasty. Substantial malt base with plenty of hops. Well balanced.

bhensonb (11680) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle from Marcus. Pours translucent golden amber with a creamy white head. Aroma has a mix, but there seems to be a lot of NS grapeiness. Med body. Flavor is fruity, even tropical, with white grape and a low key caramel backbone. Finishes fresh, fruity and definitely bitter.

Designen på flaskan är klockren. Guldaktig med kraftigt vitt skum. Kraftig arom och mycket god att dricka. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bartlebier (2072) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 33cl cans and bottles over 2 month period, BB 14/01/2014. Finally getting down to rating this leaner supermarket/party version of the pioneering UK IPA 2.0 that impressed me in its original 6% guise. Both aroma and taste are earthier than I had this down as, while still keeping the floral notes and subdominant pungent simcoe. Could it be the delicate exotic (lychee, maracuja) overtones disappeared with the Motueka? Leaner, almost crisp mf for an ale. Lingering layered bitter aftertaste. Remains a great party proselytiser for the unconverted...// Rerate rebranded 66cl bottle shared by oldmanriver: tangerine, pineapple mousse whipped underneath leafy bitters in an excellent sessioner ale. (Post)modern benchmark.

McTapps (4751) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2013
Clear deep dark amber colour with steady head and medium body. Wonderful nose of aromatic hops, coriander and spices. Taste of fresh sparkling hops, fresh coriander, white pepper, ginger and cloves. Flowery and spicy finish. Enjoyed this IPA a lot, it was very fresh, re-freshing and quaffable.
