Inspired by the amazing hoppy beers being brewed by American craft brewers this beer is heavily hopped, packing it with tropical fruit flavours and aromas. Pineapple, passion fruit & grapefruit are the dominant features of this beautiful amber ale, that has a big strong malt backbone to balance out all the hops.

JonMoore (2021) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle - hazy amber with slim off-white head. Citrus hops and tropical fruit with a strong malt backbone. Similar in the taste, medium bodied, bit of an oily mouthfeel, late bitter finish. Not bad, but not crisp, interesting or well crafted enough for my liking.

leebotton (312) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2014
Strong pineapple hop aroma. Clear golden amber. Piney, peppery and bitter floral flavours with a big bitter bite on the end. Really refreshing and fruity. Fantastic mouthfeel, fills the mouth, although the texture is not thick but works well. Only thing I would say is that it may be very slightly too bitter on the end but it is interesting and everything else makes up for this anyway. Like drinking the most fragrant bitter orange juice ever.

yngwie (15390) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle, at Nærbø Ølfestival 2013. An unclear, orange-golden beer with a small, dense, off-white head. Some lacings. The aroma has pine cones, citrus peel and some maltyness. It’s full-bodied and dry, with a nice carbonation level. Bitter, citrus-peelish flavor with pine cones and a little maltyness. Lasting bitter finish. A pretty nice one, sure shows also the Brits can make proper IPA’s. 131019

mt_hall (158) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Bottled. Slightly hazy copper colour with a medium-sized, almost-white head of fine bubbles. Hoppy aroma of pine and grapefruit. Slightly honeyed start I the mouth, with grapefruit in the middle and a very dry, piney finish. Clean flavours are very well balanced with a touch of warming alcohol and prickle of carbonation. Excellent.

Pours clear and golden. Citrus fruits with a hoppy bitterness, slight malty sweetness, right at the end a touch of lychee.

Sampled at Nærbø Ølfestival 2013. Clear golden body with an off-white head. Aroma is soft malty and citric fruity like peach, apricot and grapefruit. Nice and balanced in flavor, soft pale malt, citric fruit and balanced good bitterness. Medium body and fine aftertaste. Nice, well-made IPA, nothing more nor less.
