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.

squarta (67) - - MAY 28, 2012
impossibile cominciare dall’analisi visiva perche’ gia’ mentre si versa il profumo e’ davvero imponente e inebriante! Il colore in ogni caso e’ giallo limpido e la schiuma praticamente assente. Profumo come detto molto pungente, con punte di limone, coriandolo e zenzero appena accennato. Sapore estremamente secco, come bere una pietra pomice. Una lama amara che trafigge le papille gustative e si apre in un amplesso di aromi e sfumature, una volta ripresi dallo shock iniziale! Di certo una birra non facile, ma proprio per questo entremamente gratificante. Solo per gente allenata!

Jorn69 (545) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2014
@ Röhällavägen. Flaska från Systembolaget (21:-). Fruktig och humlig, exotiska frukter, persika, citrus, grapefrukt och tallbarr, rejäl beska, medelsöt, medelfyllig. Avslutningen är torr, besk och humlig.

pictoman (364) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 15, 2014
Poured from 330mL bottle. Slightly hazy, light orangey yellow with white head. Very fruity and citrusy hop aroma with a little bit of sweet funk. Taste has a bit of grass and mild funk yeast with a bit of citrus hops. Has a bit of an oily texture to start, then turns dry on the swallow.

beerfest5 (1059) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 10, 2014
Finally pulled the trigger on buying a bottle of this. 12oz from Malloy’s. Pours a crystal clear light amber into the pint glass. Small white head that dissipates quickly some lacing on the glass. Big grapefruit and floral hop aroma, juicy hop cones, some bready malts. Taste is full and oily, fresh hops, grapefruit and floral notes again, some tropical fruit. Nice bitter finish.

It’s all about the hops. The malt base is for the hops what bread is to marmite. Small white head. Hay transparent. Peachy. Powerful smell, passion fruit. Mango-citrus juice taste.

Benderone (13) - FRANCE - APR 9, 2014
Une infusion de houblon! Petite bière sympa, de couleur dorée, limpide. Totalement axée sur le houblon, très fruité et résineux. Corps moyen et amertume modérée pour le style, ce qui n’est pas désagréable car bien équilibré. On ne s’en lasse pas!

Had this beer so many times. First time getting round to rating it. Aroma is punchy canned pineapple, tropical fruits and burnt grass. Golden yellow coloured with a thin film of white froth. Flavour is is clean dry crisp bircuity malt and juicy topical fruit hops and nice nelson sauvin hops. Palate is nice and dry, mineral, chalky carbonation. A uk craft beer classic. Sure, its had its ups and downs over the years, but it is tasting good now.
