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.

660ml bottle. Pours cloudy light copper. Smooth head that doesn’t last very long. Mild citrus aroma. Slightly sweet apple, followed by tart citrus, a little malt and a gentle but lasting bitter finish. This is very easy drinking and extremely nice.

On tap at BrewDog pub in Florence, Italy. Great pour with a nice medium head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine and other citrus. Taste is crisp, refreshing, with lots of balanced hops, pine, citrus, and just the right amount of carbonation. Really refreshing balance of hops and a hint of malt in the palate. Truly a staple of the IPA class....

gripweed57 (701) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2014
330 ml bottle. Hazy honey gold color. Small creamy white head. Fragrant hop nose redolent of pine and citrus. Flavor is tropical fruit malt, with notes of mango and peach. Hops are subtle, yet present in finish, with notes of citrus and pine needles. Nice balance and subtlety.

DutchMark (156) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2014
Nice easy to drink ipa. Clear orange with a small soapy head. Carbonation is soft. Very fresh and floral citrussy flavor. Slightly sweet. The hop bitterness appears only in the aftertaste. A mild ipa. If you?re looking for extreme bitterness, this is not it. If you want a tasty sessionable ipa, give it a try.

darioklc (513) - Karlovac, CROATIA - SEP 24, 2014
Flowery, earthy, citric hops over a light Euro base. This beer gets more flowery and bakery as it opens up. Give the beer it’s due, it’s offering a very pleasant and rich arc that is clean, refreshing, and yet fully textured and flowery. Clean. Orange zest, orchids, lillies, flower store. Yet never cloying. One of the best beers I’ve tried.

GothGargoyle (1248) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
Fresh on draught at Le Trappiste, Brugge. Clear golden with a pale head. Aroma is fresh orange juice, passionfruit, ruby grapefruit, hint of mint, lychee, tangerine. Best smelling IPA ever. Light-medium bodied, subtly syrupy mouthfeel, somewhat dry and floral on the finish. Taste is citrus peel, passionfruit, floral herbs, orange blossom honey, dry white wine. Awesome.

Bov (9552) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 22, 2014
from Erzbierschof - clear dark blond beer with a poor head retention; solid fruity hoppy aroma of grapefruit and mango; hints of cheese; a good malt backbone; lively and pretty tasty; a decent bitterness, quite dry and long grapefruity hoppy finish with notes of star fruit
