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.

En lata 330 cl. No difiere mucho de la servida en botella. Buena apariencia y sabor. Ideal como IPA de diario.

Schlumpfhunter (77) - Bavaria, GERMANY - FEB 9, 2016
Farbe: ocker, trüb Schaum: naja mir hats erst mal die halbe Flasche auf den Tresen gesprudelt. Sonst mittelgrober Schaum, bleibt immer was da. Nase: intensiv, Hopfen a la Orange, Grapefruit, Blumenwiese. Geschmack: ordentlich sauer und bitter, sogar für ein IPA. Abgang natürlich auch orangig, da kommt noch Getreide dazu, aber jetzt nicht so toll wie die Nase erhoffen lässt. Kohlensäure da aber nicht zu viel. Bitterer Orange-Nachgeschmack. Nicht übel, mir ein bisschen zu bitter und orangig.

vami (346) - Poznan, POLAND - FEB 8, 2016
I remember this beer drunk fresh in the UK and it was marvellous. However, yesterday I had a batch dated 30/09/2016 here in Poland. Aroma is of old hops with some faint citrus overtones. In taste it is nicely refreshing and a bit hoppy, but it was much more than that. Unfortunately, this bottle was a disaster - comparing to what I had drunk before. It was just another faint pale ale without any character.

BrettGT (18) - Aalborg, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2016
Aroma dominated by pineapple, followed by orange and mango. Juicy. Pours golden, slighty cloudy, one-finger white head. Taste is medium bitterness and low sweetness. Medium-light body, pretty slick, average carbonation and medium finish. Overall a juicy, tropical IPA that has good drinkability.

nephirem (58) - CROATIA - FEB 2, 2016
Pours a clear orange color with small, short lasting white head. Wonderful smell of grapefruit and mango. Medium body with somewhat high but subtle carbonation. Full and creamy mouthfeel. Taste is hops, grapefruit, orange peel, herbs and spices. Some caramel notes as it warms up. I really love the grassy, herbal aftertaste. Very refreshing. Finish is dry and slightly bitter. It really wraps this one up quite nicely. Overall, great example of the style. Recommended!

Lloydy (68) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2016
330ml bottle. Big hoppy aromas. Tastes of mango, pineapple, citrus. A really good example of the modern IPA type and widely available in UK supermarkets and bars. Well worth a try.

Bottle from everywhere! Mostly Sainsbury's 660 bottles for £2.50. Making this the best value hop head beer I can find. Hence I've drunk so much of it but never taken the time to rate! It's wonderfully hoppy yet always distinctive. All the US hop tropical aroma you love. They use a very unobtrusive yeast so all flavours are exposed. I suppose it's more of an APA than an IPA. But the UK market has grown and awareness improved. BrewDog were early pioneers and this is a legacy product. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
