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.

larsga (7072) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2012
Medium beige head. Hazy deep amber body. Caramelly raisiny aroma with citric kiwi notes. Dry-sweet roasty raisiny taste with resiny kiwi and chocolate notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish resiny dusty raisiny aftertaste with earthy spicy kiwi notes. Lovely, vivid, clear, and highly drinkable. The malt profile reminds me of US beers. (0.3l draft at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen.)

fletchfighters (1357) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 13, 2012
A-- A deep, earthy brownish copper color. A one finger light brown head. Good head retention and just a little bit of lacing. Much darker than I expected. S-- Lots of sweet, yeasty malt with this. Also get candied orange, lime and grapefruit. Hops are soft and malt is much bigger in the smell. A lot of sweetness to this. T-- Grapefruit and malt. Pretty big doses of each. The grapefruit is a on the sour bitter side but workable as it does finally taste like an IPA should. Malt is a a little soft but works OK to tone down the grapefruit. M-- Medium carbonation and a bit creamy. Heavy, bitter earthy grapefruit taste. To me it lacks the lemon and pine taste and feel that make IPA’s really good. Pretty one dimensional. D-- Workable in small batches.

Gramoit (379) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2012
Pours copper in colour, with a small head that recedes into a thin film. It is a fairly malty ipa, with hops taking a back seat but still influencing the taste. A fairly sessionable ipa. Overall it is a good brew but would like it to be a little more hoppy for my tastes, but one I want to have in the future.

330ml Bottle. Pours dark orange in colour. Fantastic citrus hop aromas. Good malt flavours on initial taste followed by a big hit of lingering hops. Very good beer.
