COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an IPA made with Pilsner malt, Amber malt and a dash of rye malt. The amber malt gives it a nice nutty flavour and a slight toastiness. The rye adds a bit of a peppery taste. On top of this it´s hopped with Amarillo and Simcoe. This IPA will be an excellent pairing with Indian or Mexican food.

Turtles (113) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear copper dark color with a fluffy white head. Aroma of yeast, root cellar, candies and red berries. Immediate hoppy flavor, spices, butter, candy, gummi bears and some sweetness. Medium bodied body that is low carbonated.

Hopmaestro (326) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2015
Aroma is on the lower side of hops and contains bready malts as well as some hay and herbals. It smells robust. The taste also brings more of the rye ingredients, so after the first floral sensation, you get a slightly nut and pepper feeling to it. This is the kind of IPA you have when you don’t want to get to excited, and are looking for a more solid and mature kind of IPA, but still don’t want to head towards the classic old style IPA’s.

Tap at Henrik’s, Bergen? Late October 2014. Orange amber swirled with froth. Out there aroma of massive fresh apricot and mint coated in milk chocolate; lavender, gingerbread. Earthy malt and digestive base overlaid with fresh pine, chocolate hints, mint humbug. Excellent.

Mango, peach, roasted malt, dried fruits, oak, spice, hoppy bitter finish. Quite an original one with a rich texture, mixing roasted and fruity flavors.

Vignale (2334) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2015
Flaska från SB. Bärnstensfärgad, klar och väldigt lite skum som snabbt försvinner. Karamellig doft, toast, rostade nötter, frusen mango, ingefära och lite jord. Lite pepprig smak, sötklibbigt fruktig med mango och lite sitrus med en liten jordig eftersmak, måttlig beska. Trevlig.
