This single hop IPA, the third in our series, highlights the character of a unique Australian hop variety, Summer. This hop has a slightly lower alpha acid % when compared with our previous IPAs, Galaxy and Stella. To compensate for this, we have increased our hopping regime by 50%. The result is a lush IPA with melon and stone fruit characters and mild bitterness.

larsga (7104) - Oslo, - NOV 14, 2012
Medium offwhite head. Hazy yellow body with strong and very fast carbonation. Sugary fruity earthy resiny aroma with peas earth and spice notes. Dry-sweet earthy peas taste with chalky notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, slightly empty mouthfeel. Dryish earthy peas aftertaste with caramelly sulphury dusty notes. Interesting, unusual, and imperfect. (0.33l bottle, Kihoskh, Copenhagen.)

highlandlad (1463) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2015
First beer from Bridge Road’s single-hope IPA four-pack is an easy-quaffing summer quencher. Moderate bitterness, soft flavour profile. Gold, chill haze, low but enduring head. Lots of mango on the nose - one of the key smells of summer around these parts. Also white peach - nice, fresh. Soft palate - the moderate carbonation suits the style. A little underwhelming on the tongue. Nothing much wrong with it but it’s a bit one-dimensional. Melon, mango, wheat. Kind of thing you’d try at a bar and think, ’Yeah, that’s fine’ but you’d hope for something better next round.

jbruner (3780) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 29, 2015
Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of big citrus, melon, and stone fruit qualities. Taste follows with less hop presence than the nose, malty backend, bit less than the others in the pack. Mild bitterness, easy drinker, solid.

floydian1 (1301) - FNQ, Australia, - SEP 30, 2015
330ml bottle. An amber beer with a decent white head. Nose and flavour is caramel malts and stone fruits imparting a mild-to-moderate hop bitterness to the (light-medium bodied) palate. No hop monster but quite sessionable.

TedE (811) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2015
Sweet fruity hop nose, almost apple sweet. Hazy deep amber beer with small white head. Light carbonation. Thin easy drinking mouthfeel. Hints of Turkish delight with nice bitterness in the finish. Touch of Melon shines through late on. Not spectacular but nice.

Bit disappointed by this one. Got waft of pine in the glass. Little light in taste but is sweet. Bitter at the end. A bit so-so for mine. 330ml. 4.8%. 1.3std dri. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. My least favourite of the four beer school series beers. Better than the Summer IPA they brewed previous to this, but I suppose I’m just not a huge fan of this hop.
