Ingredients: Extra Pale Malt; Chinook, Ahtanum, Amarillo, Cascade, Simcoe, 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.

This beer has a very tropical aroma, much lighter appearance than I was expecting from an IPA. Also the taste is much more subtle than I expect from an IPA, but this isn’t dissapointing for me, I generally find an IPA a touch too bitter and much prefer an APA, which this seems to resemble more. Quite a pleasant refreshing beer.

Aan de geur van het bier moet ik even wennen, maar ik vind het een lekker bier. Goed doordrinkbaar, lekker fris, superhop zorgt voor pittig bittertje.

Hippoman (10) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle from Sainsbury’s, Crossgate Moor, £1.90/330ml Middle amber in colour. The aroma is strong but pleasant, damp leaves and ripe fruits. First taste is bitter, giving way to very pleasant tropical fruitiness with Amarillo flavour coming through. Very smooth drinking. A fashionable beer but justifiably so.

Still ’New’ Punk to me, this is a well ramped down version which is more emancipated with more malt and an almost gingery spiciness. Civilised and decent but such a pale imitation of once was. As punk as Rick Astley.

2015-05-03 - A very special bottle, highly original. The beer is good as well, but not as outstanding.

floydian1 (1120) - FNQ, Australia, - MAY 2, 2015
330ml can (BB 18/8/15) from Dan Murphys. Hazy orange body with a stable frothy white head providing a decent lace. Nose offers plenty of citrus fruits with oranges and grapefruit to the fore, pine needles and a decent biscuity malt bill. Flavour is similar with a good balance of malt and hops and a firm but not overpowering bitterness to the finish. Palate is medium bodied and moderately carbonated with an oily texture and easy drinkabiliity. Overall very nice though I suspect the hop freshness suffers a little bit in the long journey from Scotland.

Bottle at home. Aroma is fresh and pleasant: tropical fruit and grassy. Taste is more of the same. Body is fairly light and drinkable. Good sessionable IPA, highly drinkable with light bitter finish.

Gangstergafje (133) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2015 The beer is very cloudy and has a yellow/orange color. The beer pours a white foam, after seconds almost none if it is left. The smell is nice and sweet. It has citrusy hop flavors and a ’green’ aroma. Really fruity. The taste has some more IPA bitterness in it. The fruity aroma’s in smell are also present in the taste. The fruit aroma’s in the smell could have been a little stronger. Nice beer.

airrick2003 (636) - Louisiana, USA - APR 28, 2015
Appearance: pours with a very small beige head, the beer is a very hazy golden color, you can see tiny particles throughout Aroma: grain, grass, pine, very subtle but I like it Taste: citrus, flowers, mildly bitter for an ipa, has something that reminds me of Scotland, Palate: gentle bitter aftertaste, light mouthfeel, lively carbonation Overall: I like this, it's even better when you realize it's practically a session ipa, not very bitter but has a good taste to it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sonotono (74) - torino, ITALY - APR 27, 2015
Colore biondo, carbonazione non ecccessiva. Aroma agrumato, pompelmo, molto intenso, anche resinoso ed erbaceo. Buon bilanciamento tra le note maltate dolci e l’amaro lungo, agrumato.

Buena combinación de maltas y lúpulos, color amarillo pálido, bastante turbia y espuma abundante y persistente.
