COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
During the British Colonial Times, the English exported beer to India. To preserve the beer for a longer period, extra-hopped beers were produced (hops maintain natural preservation and add bitterness to the beer).

Gbgbrouge (369) - SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2015
Poured from bottle, slightly hazy pale amber with high white head. Poured carefully the aroma is an explosion of fruit, with the yeast it loses the fruitiness. Taste is very well balanced, bitterness mixed with a good malt body and a nice bitter finish, with yeast the taste flattens and becomes a soggy belgian blonde ale.

Foffern (1543) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a compact, off-white head. Fruity aroma of orange peel, lemon, pale malt and dry hay. The flavor is also fruity with more oranges, grapefruit, fruity hops and grass. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a balanced bitterness. A fruity and malty IPA. Well-balanced and easy-drinking.

Senap (537) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2015
Hm, här blir jag lite villrådig. Absolut en god öl, men någon ipa är det inte sett till smakprofil. Mer som en klassisk belgare.

Pours an amber body with a medium head. Faint interesting aroma with hoppy tones. Very nice and balanced taste with a nice hoppy hint. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
