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).

Draft. An unclear dar golden beer with an off-white head. The aroma is sweet with a slight tart note and light notes of fruit. The flavor is sweet with a nice acidic edge and fruity notes of citrus, some yeast, and herbs, leading to a quite tart finish. Lovely flavor - surprisingly boring aroma.

Bottled. Hazy golden colour, big creamy white head. Aroma is bigtime US IPA-like along with some earthy and grassy notes. Flavour is leather, caramel, fruits and some interesting yeast. This is a very interesting brew from much I have had lately. Hard to describe but really good.

Draught at Pizzeria Paradiso, recommendation from Darrell. Cloudy, stormy yellow with a white head that disappears rapidly but leaves incredible lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and lemon. Similar taste of both, with a bit of pepper. Very very dry with a slightly bitter finish. Well done.
