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.

Borefts warm up at Bier Temple, Amsterdam. Hazy amber beer, good white head. Light crispy palate. Minerals. Mild marmalade hops - a little watery. Tiny bit of creamy malt. Semi dry finish, Okay but a little wishy washy for a 5.8% IPA.

yngwie (13346) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle, at Patricks. A gusher, producing a small off-white head over a clear, dark amber body. Piney, resiny nose, with biscuity, toffee-ish malts. There’s a little bitterness in the mouth, pine cones and citrus peel too, with a bit to much maltiness. Full to medium body, soft carbonation. A bit short finish. Nice, but not a winner. 130214
