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.

oh6gdx (20930) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2011
Draught@Plan B, Copenhagen. Slightly hazy amber colour with a small white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, caramel, some citrus and mild crisp maltyness. Flavour is very similar in a pleasant balance. Also had it a week after from a bottle from systembolaget, and the bottled one was much more harsh and lacked most of the tropical fruits.

Initially a freebie at the White Horse but subsequenlty I have paid for this a coupla times at the Rake so defo now a commercial brew. Clear amber beer with a residual suddy white head. Crispish palate, a little dry. Turns to a soft creamy malt base in the mouth - nice! Citric hoppy fresh orange and touches of grapefruit and lemon. Finishes semi dry and minerally with a long bitter aftertaste. Refreshing! The most West Coast UK IPA I have ever tasted. Side by side with regular Punk, Punk X made it taste tired and bitter!! Nor was any of the various blends of Punk and Punk X that the punters were putting together any better than Punk X. The original Punk just detracted each time IMHO. Yes Punk X could stand a little more bitterness but it’s a fine beer and for me clearly superior to the previous version. My apolgies to Punk stalwarts like Harrisoni and Mes&Sim but I have to call ’em like I see ’em!

2012-06-08, draught at Pibar, Lausanne, 8-5-7-4-15=39
Cloudy golden color. Nice fruity aroma, citrus fruits, oranges, some manure. Toffee flavor, sweetish and earthy, dirty, with some good fruity hopping; strong bitterness. Rough, but good after a sequence of bad beer that I had tonight.

Blond color, hazy; medium sized head, quite compact. The aroma is pungent as it should be, from the Nelson Sauvin; passion fruit, lemon; and later some smell of Chinese cooking. The body is lean, the mouthfeel very dry; there is light flavor of malt and dry toffee, with a peculiar grass and hay edge; strong bitterness but without fruity components from the hop.
Because of the dryness and relative balance, it’s a great thirst-quencher.

Cloudy deep blond color; generous frothy head. The first aroma impact if fruity, citrusy, tropical fruits; later it becomes more resiny and sweaty; in the end, a bit earthy and yeasty. Dry toffee flavor; the hopping is powerful, very oily and resiny, with a fairly good mix of tropical fruits; but the flavor is also unclean, probably due to the yeast. Long final, thirst quenching.
Very good, but in general the first version impressed me more.

2011-06-10, draught at Plan B, Copenhagen, 7-4-7-4-13=35
Hazy deep blond color; creamy head. The aroma is strong and very fruity but not penetrating like other times; the mouthfeel is soft but also weak, and it seems to terribly lack of malt (toffee) backbone; resiny and fruity hops, with a lot of passion fruit and some jam; chaotic tonight.
