A couple of centuries back, IPA was made strong and hoppy to protect it on those long voyages from England to India. These days, we just make it that way because it tastes great.
An intensive five-stage hopping process delivers a rich, robust character, smooth flavour and an inviting aroma. So, while it has all the mighty ‘BAM’ of the original, it’s surprisingly well balanced – a bit like our skateboarding elephant.
Five malted barley varieties, five natural hop varieties, fruity ale yeast and water.

Not a bad offering, but not one you would go back for. It is really subdued compared to other IPA’s on offer.

jonno (2445) - JAPAN - APR 9, 2013
Very British. Citrus and perfumey marmalade/toffee on the nose. Big tawny body which adds a splash of character, but is a bit too much in the long run. Toffee, bready body sits on the vegetal and herbal hops until they submit. Better than expected.

RBJG2. Clear golden colour, aroma is fruity orange, big hoppiness. Taste is less hoppy, much less harsh, fruity, bit umami, maybe seafood. Big difference between smell and taste. Nice.

Light golden color. Marmalade and grapefruit dominate the nose. Sweet maltiness hit the tounge initially. Fully bodied. Marmalde and lemon in the mouth. a bit thick and syrupy, but pretty enjoyable. Moderately bitter finish. A touch too sweet, but interesting.
