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).

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Pours a cloudy light amber/golden with a decent sized cream colored head that stays for awhile and produces nice lacing. Aroma is complex with grapefruit, passion fruit, pinapple, light malt and an undertone of Belgian yeast. Very light sweetness with medium to heavy bitterness, short dry finish. Medium bodied, creamy texture, lively carbonation. Of all of the Belgian IPA’s I have had so far this one is by far my favorite.

Foffern (1465) - 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 (494) - 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.

Cool_Bond (2056) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2015
Spicy aroma with notes of citrus. The taste is fruity and citrus. OK bitterness which fills the upper part of the mouth a weak moment. Not overly good beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
