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.

The best way to describe this beer is as perfectly balanced. Their are certainly hopper IPAs and more complex beers, but this is really the best balance I have ever had in terms of hops-complexity-sweetness-bitterness-skunkiness-cr

Nästintill klar, guld gul med ett lätt färgat skum. Doft: Humle, humle, grape, omogen mango och ananas, malt, jäst. Smak: Som doft + frukt kola. Enkel och okomplicerad IPA.

BlackHaddock (4009) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2014
Keg half-pint in Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, Oakengates on 19th Nov 2014. Poured a golden colour, with a full white head. Hops rule the nose and taste, citrus and floral with the citrus notes pushing the flowery hints to the rear. Fizzy and lemony, too highly carbonated for me and my palate. Did not really enjoy. Fizzy Toilet Duck!

Head is creamy, white and fully diminishing. Body is clear yellow orange, sparkles are visible. Aroma contains mainly hops with loads of (tropical and citrus) fruits (both sweet and sour). Flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and light sweet, followed by light acidic, sweet and light bitter, Light acidic and light butter and finishing in bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Balanced and complex in the fruits. I quite liked it, the bitterness was not too harsh or overpowering.

Bevuta in lattina, al naso esplodono i frutti tropicali (mango soprattutto) che danno lidea che al palato sia molto dolce, quando in realtà, apparte l’ingresso, si mantiene giustamente amara e beverina! Forse me l aspettavo un attimo meno watery (che però aiuta a mandarla facilmente in gola)

brianza_ale (136) - ITALY - NOV 19, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2014 33cl can teku. Pours a white small to medium head, bit hazy orange to golden colour. Smells fruity, lemon, pineapple, nice aromatic exotic hoppiness, delicate not pungent. Tastes honey malt, caramel, biscuity, bit citrusy and grass/resin; low sweetness, moderate but very smooth and almost vanishing bitterness. Medium bodied, slick texture, quite soft carbonation, extremly drinkable and balanced, refreshing. ALso tried on tap but wasn’t that awesome. I would say I maybe prefer a fresh can/bottle, nicely poured. Nice one, would drink tones

Fisler (39) - GERMANY - NOV 19, 2014
Im Glas hellgolden, stabiler, fluffiger Schaum, schaut gut aus. In der Nase wahnsinnig fruchtig, citrus. Geschmacklich erst fruchtig, dann kommt eine leichte Bitterkeit durch, im Abgang wird die dominant und im langen Nachgang dann trocken. Wow. Äußerst lecker, jeder Schluck macht es noch intensiver.

soolash (47) - Gdynia, POLAND - NOV 19, 2014
Butelka 0,33 l. Wyraźny aromat cytrusowy, mandarynkowy, pamelo. Piana jasna, średnio pęcherzykowa i średnio trwała niezbyt obfita. Barwa: piwo jest jasne, złote. W smaku lekko słodkie z przyjemną goryczka, która nie zalega zbyt długo w mocnej formie początkowej. Nasycenie niskie do średniego.
