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.

Bottle. Powerfull hop aroma with intense grape and mango with some pine to be found beneath. The taste is mostly focused on fruity hop. The malt is just subtle in the background as it should. It could however have done with more bitterness. It is light in body and has lively carbonation just as an IPA should. The finish however is a bit dissapointing, not as bitter and powerfull as it could have been. There is even some disturbing yeast taste in the finish. A really nice IPA. Its not extreme in anyway but it is good example of the style even if it could have been more bitter.

paolo71 (17) - Alviano, ITALY - DEC 18, 2014
In bottle. White, rocky head, persistent enough. Golden yellow, cloudy. Intense at nose. Citrus, grapefuit, ananas, tropical smells, herbal. Medium body. Intense and persistent in the mouth. Beautiful malty and citrus-like entry. The bitter expands all around the mouth and a pleasant astringency asks for another sip. Balanced and armonic.

King_Alex_II (108) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Hoppy surprise. Very bitter, nearly no sweetness. A bit pale in color and taste. Taste like a strongly hopped, bodyless pale ale. (Which doesn’t need to be a bad thing)

gim (17) - POLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle. Nice hoppy aroma. Amber almost clear, head vanished quickly, nice lacing. Light sweet, light bitter. Light bodied, low/medium carbo. Only bit bitter finish, pretty short. Overall I expected something better. Aroma is best part of this beer.
