COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bridge Road Brewers have created their own take on a more traditional beer style - India Pale Ale, originally a heavily hopped beer developed for the long haul from England to India by boat. Fresh hops were added to the barrel and the alcohol was bolstered to ensure the beer went the distance on the high seas. Bling, is a huge beer, with all the bells and whistles. This ale is armed to the teeth with hops and studded with 24 carrot modified malts. At Bridge Road we’ve gone all out to make an IPA that screams hops and malt but still keeps balance in mind. Try matching this beer it with anything spicy or enjoy this malt and hop mouth full on its own. We love it, and hope you can too.

floydian1 (1110) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 5, 2015
Comes in a triple pack of 330ml bottles and a Spiegelau IPA glass. Looks great with a hazy copper-amber body and a large foamy off-white head that displays great retention and lace. Aroma is robust biscuity caramel malts with plenty of balancing citrus and pine resinous hops and this is transferred to the palate which is medium bodied and lively. Finish is resinous and bitter but not overpowering. Balanced and very enjoyable.

TedE (351) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2015
330 ml bottle into glass. Robust hop nose, a little malt as well. Copper beer with solid two finger white head. A few bubbles ascending. Bitter chalky mouthfeel. Even more bitter finish. Leaves a beautiful floral hop aftertaste. Very nice.

magpieken (101) - - FEB 24, 2015
330ml bottle. Bottled 2/9/14. Pours a medium copper colour with a towering off white head which lasted well and left some excellent lacing. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, tropical fruit and malt. Aroma was quite intense on opening the bottle but in the glass shows some restraint. Medium bitterness and light to medium sweetness. Medium bodied, smooth and a gentle bitter finish. Very approachable. 8.

Pretty clean and standard ipa. More on the pale side if theres one. A nice hop aroma and the head poured well. Hint of pine and grassy flavour. No complaints

RafeAU (293) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - OCT 18, 2014
If you’re at a pub in Australia you might be lucky enough to find this in a bottle and break the lager boredom. It’s a decent IPA but the hop aroma and flavour is somewhat mild – they could have put some more hops in!

beer-yum (731) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 23, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2015 Not sure why, but I’m not getting the "IPA" in this brew. It’s a good beer - but more of a double malty mild to my taste. Will look to try again though and update initial rating as required. Have done just that (tried again) and I still don’t get this beer. It is nice enough - but in no way an IPA (to my taste at least).

monoroc (49) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Pours copper to brown color with a big and solid head. Aroma is malt, citrus fruits and a bit floral. Medium to heavy malty backbone with a taste of orange, brown sugar, a bit of pine. rather narrow, medium lasting bitterness. Good carbonation level. Overall a solid IPA with a faint floral touch.

Jmar33 (187) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2014
Tap. Nice IPA, closer to the pale ale territory than IPA but I suppose it’s trying to compete with hop hog. It’s good, but not ’hop hog’ good.

HKdIPA (378) - HONG KONG - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle from Brewcraft at home. Dark hazy amber pour - maybe too dark? Thick foamy, slightly yellowed head. Aroma is dank sweet fruity hops. Taste is big fruity and bitter hops. A bit muddled though - dank and bitter. Not bad though - lots of flavor, just seems to be missing some direction. Slightly vegetal finish. Tastes higher ABV than it is. Not bad but not great value here.
